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.

The Father in Law

Captain Ron Machin of Star Trek painted in
Watercolour way back in the last centary
in 1999!
An up dated version as he gave up Star ships and space for
a bike and trips to France!
