New Finished Lineart – 02/07/2017

I really need to get into the habit of posting these as they are finished, but here are the pieces of lineart that I’ve finished since I released the 7 free PDFs. These will be available to download to all my patrons on Patreon once I launch it, though comments here  are welcome 🙂 Read More »

Completed Lineart Samples

This is a gallery of the lineart PDFs I have available for download, the first 7 are available here (free registration required) and the others will be accessible through my Patreon once I launch it (Soon™).

These are all available as A3 PDFs which will print acceptably at A4 size. Considering that they were originally drawn in a Moleskine, slightly smaller than A5, it shouldn’t cause too much in the way of eye strain colouring them at A4 size 😉

Product Prototypes

Bordered and Titled A3 Poster Prototype

This will be a gallery of experimental product mock-ups and prototypes. Feel free to comment and discuss.

I’ll be posting a variety of mock-ups and concepts here and your input will be valuable in selecting which one’s go forward to production.

Finished Works – Prints Available

Here are my finished pieces.

Signed and numbered prints are limited to 50 per finished work and are priced at £100 each.

This includes:

  • One signed and numbered print unique to you. Each print will be subtly different from the other 49 in the run, but will retain the general appearance of the originals posted here.
  • Shipping to me for signing and numbering by hand.
  • Shipping to you anywhere in the UK, EEA/EU, or USA/Canada.

Contact me in order to place your order or if you live outside of those areas.

Works in Progress

This gallery is where I’ll be posting images of various stages of the vectorising process. I find it interesting to see how a sketch develops as I hand digitise them and the moments when the WiP screenshot matches what I had in my head while sketching are priceless.

Sketches

This gallery is where I’ll be posting the finished first stage of production for each of my doodles.

I generally come up with a composition, roughly blocked out at small scale and nailing down the overall layout. Then I fill it in more or less randomly with the shapes you encounter across my work. The hardest part is knowing where to start with the detail once the layout and composition is blocked out. The intimidation of a (largely) blank page is quite something, but once I get a couple of shapes down they just seem to flow from my pencil.

My current preferred medium is pencils in a Moleskine. They’re portable, and the page-size isn’t too intimidating. The one drawback is that some pieces want to be bigger, and I have dreams of putting pencil, pen or brush to multiple large canvases in future.

These are then traced in Inkscape as .SVG files to produce printable PDFs, and then coloured. The stages of that process can be found in the Works in Progress gallery.

The first 7 sketches are available as PDFs to print and colour in if you register a free subscriber account and future additions will be available to my Patreon subscribers. For a small consideration of $1 per month you gain access to all existing lineart PDFs and any new ones as they are published. Look out for an announcement of when my Patreon goes live, or be automatically notified by email if you are a subscriber.

More sketches will be added to this as they are completed.
