Drawing Request 03: Wooly mammoth paratroopers REVISED!

Hi there!

Soooooo....there where comments on the previous drawing that I didn't fulfill the brief because they didn't look like paratroopers because of the lack of parachutes.  So here is another version, with parachutes this time.  All done in Flash and I started work on this with 3 glasses of red wine in my system at 9:00 pm and didnt finish till 4 AM.

So I now have 7 requests left to go!  Yay....oh god.... for those that dont know what's happening or what these requests are, please have a read on this previous  post.

I am currently animating for a game and working on creating illustrations for online exams for a University.  I am also waiting for work to start and looking for other gigs in the meantime. 

Whatever spare time I have left between drawing and work is dedicated to going to the gym.  Every part of my body hurts currently, with the exception of my face.

Was wondering if I could enter this for Illustration Friday's safari.....though I suspect that it might be a bit of a stretch....but what they hey!


  1. sure this could be safari.... Your a champion to do this in 7 hours with wine in your system, I would fall asleep. Great Work, Love the colours and the grass is amazing.

  2. Well, we can pretend these are elephants coming for revenge on the safari hunter! So, why not?! I like it very much and have to say that there is lots of great detailing for someone with cups of wine in their system : )

  3. wow, there is a mammoth war going on!

  4. How freakin' AWESOME!!! This is wonderful. Thanks so much for your kind words and support. I really appreciate you stopping by.

  5. HA! Can't believe you redid this. I must admit, though, seeing mammoths floating down on a breeze is mind bogglingly cool! And you did this while running on alcohol fumes? You wow me!

    I think this would be a fantastic addition to the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland, don't you???

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.

IF: Burning


This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!
