In 2012 I picked up a pencil for the first time in almost twenty years. I call myself a sometimes artist as I am still learning all the techniques I’ve forgotten and developing a style that I feel comfortable with. The most important thing is to never give in and keep drawing outside your comfort zone, I hope you enjoy my journey so far…
The last few days I’ve been assembling all the Teddy Bear Tale characters in one place, and the Teddyverse has grown a lot in the last year, as new stories are written and heroes arise. Lets take a look at who is who after the jump.
The New Characters For The Teddy Bear Verse – Duo (coming digitally summer 2018)
Welcome to a new installment of ‘Drawing Outside Your Comfortzone’ over the last couple of years I have taken you all on a journey with me, as I attempt to evolve and improve my drawing style by tackling subjects, or ideas outside my normal comfortzone. The results have been mixed, but with each jump my skills have got a little sharper and I learned a new technique, or incorporated part of a drawing style. Well, in this installment I start the journey towards, putting away paper, pen and inktense pencils and look towards turning to Digital Art.
It happens once a year, artists gather on the interwebs and take part in a drawing event that runs for the entire month of October – this event is Inktober and 2017 marks my fourth year of taking part in this celebration of the basic form of ink art.
Drawing Outside Your Comfortzone is all about taking on projects or ideas that stretch my drawing abilities and take me in a different direction. In this installment I take on a series of Animal Mascots for EMA Family Karate, a local Dojo and Gym that my family are members of.
