I thought this time I'd put a scketch up before the finished pic for a change so you can see the before and the after. this was done tonight while watching BBC's new version of The Day Of The Trifids part 1 . So this sketch took about 30 mins ( the first hour was finding the refrence picture and then wondering first , what was this program about ??? and secondly how was I going to attack this picture!). She has such a wealth of things to put into this , but I have to be careful as not to go to far, a thing any caricaturist has to work out, if they are to keep the odd arm and dangly bits!
The finished picture will appear soon so keep an eye out!


This is another from the 'school reunion' . This took about 6 hours to finnish in Photoshop.

The Mother in Law

I took my life in my hands when I drew this several years back of my Mother in Law.
So I had to do a good job with it.

Drawn in coloured pencil on coloured paper.

The first propper all digital picture

This was the first ever try at digital painting using Photoshop, it took me about 6 weeks, 5 weeks playing around with different effects , brushes and other bits and bobs connected with photoshop and one week madly rushing to do the actual work!.
I still end up playing around with things in Photoshop , never two pictures are done the same, not because of any secret ideas , its because I keep forgetting to remember to save things and forget how I did things .
So I never get bored as each picture is as if I have just started a new, so it always fun and exiting
This guy was the person who came to our rescue each time we got stuck with the computer, which was almost all the time!

Stoke City FC

This was one of the best goalkeepers that both Stoke City and England ever had, until he lost an eye in a car crash. He was also a regular visitor to my old school, and became one of my childhood hero's.

A few lovely ladies

The beautifulist of them all my mother, who I only have one photo of her and never knew.
Painted in watercolour.

These two ladies used to work in our local shop at one time or another

This was of my first Love who was lost and is missed

Another ex !

Some one who never knew what to do, and still doesn't!

This was the first one, and the only one she lets me keep of the one who sole my heart and kept me behaving myself, and for some reason married me and stayed with me for the passed 16 years.

This was painted in watercolour, a time before a computer came into my life , a time ofworking all night with a dog at my side and a cat on my knee, and large amouts of coffee!
