Raspberry Fish (WIP)


Work in progress Raspberry Fish.  Can you tell I don't have a lot of time on my hands lately?  Anyhoo, I really like how this is coming along but now that I've seen what it looks like next to the strawberry fish...I think it looks too similar and it's because of the colouring I think.  Green and red which is unavoidable as that's what the colour of the berries are.  I may need to add more orange and yellow to my raspberry fish just to get a few different tones and shades.  Perhaps some brown too.

School tomorrow....rigging and skinning the character.  I expect tomorrow to be a tough day.

On another note...preparing for exhibitions are expensive!  I just spent heaps of cash on frames and getting new prints done.  Sheesh!  I am also going to be selling the original watercolours of the berry fishies when I enter them into the small works exhibition in a gallery in Melbourne....so if anything catches your fancy, order now in case they get snapped up!

Some journal entries!

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: Burning

Howdy! 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!

IF: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
