Wieringo Tribute

some practice work over a wonderful sketch by the late Mike Wieringo. His art continues to be a wonderful influence for many aspiring artists, including myself.

first try with digital inks

rough colour sample


an abstract experiment, lots of planning with the roughs and prep work. Just some random shots I took along the way, trying to mimic the eventual lighting, forgot to get a final though. I'll get one up eventually with some cutesy detail shots.

Current Daily Comps

and the latest over the last few months


Daily Comps Continued

Another batch from last year. Each is 20 mins or less, except for the Royal Winter Fair one(60 mins).



Not Quite So Daily Compositions

Some composition exercises from various sketchbooks I've gone through over the last year and a half. I try to do 3-6 per week. Each one is 20 mins or less and full of disasters, mistakes, and progression.
