Welcome welcome....

We have a new member- Shaun Whoriskey. A Derry man and a hell of an artist in both 2d and 3d forms. I'm quite pleased to have Shaun join us as it almost feels like we started drawing together, way back in primary one- he drew dinosaurs and I drew guys with weapons. Ahh good times. You can check out some of his stuff over on his own blog by clicking here

We'll keep these theme weeks going, from monday to monday, we'll let manga run until the 7th then Shaun can pick the next theme and we'll rotate it about, coolio?

If there's any other Northern Irish artist out there and would like to contribute shout us an email, address at the side there.

Another manga sketch...attempt...

This craic is no craic at all!! I feel like me drawing ability has reset to that of 7 year old! Looking at stuff online and some advise from Sir Neville of Chamberlain, the thing that I liked about the style was everything more angular, so with that in mind I attempted this very dodgy sketch using only the line tool. Well mostly the line tool theres about 5% pen tool. I dont like this sketch but thought I'd throw it up anyway, all greif in the comments below thank you.

Manga sketch's

Found it quite hard trying to do something manga styled, its a way of drawing I've never tried before so all I could come up with in the time being is some sketches. Hopefully I'll get a proper piece up when I get the hang of how to draw them. Until then..........

why's gothic girl orientated?

Really like, just type Gothic into google and nearly everything you get up is girl with loads of eye makeup. Ok i get that thats the look but for me gothic darker, seedier,.. so I came up with this... yes there is a girl in it but with a little more sinister shit going on too. Really enjoying doing this as it something I wouldn't normally try to do. Done this again using manga studio, its rough round the edges but I was going for atmosphere over prettiness.

gothic, eh.........

...when you said gothic John the only person I wanted to draw was, Death. She's from 'Sandman' if you don't know her already. Done this in manga studio then threw in some greys with photoshop. I really like the theme idea, we should do a different character each week give us good practice for when 2D rolls round again.

went a bit cothic here but think it turned out cool. Think we should get this site up and going again lads 1 or 2 drawings a week what do u think ill start it with this peice make it GOTHIC week.
