Alex Turner Print

Print 3/6. A single block print I did for my printmaking class. I am very happy with how it came out. It has a quality that is eye catching. It was a great learning experience to carve the lino block and calculate what needed to be removed and reversed.

Female Quick Sketch

Just a quick practice of the female figure. It was during a gesture portion of a class, so the pose was only about a minute. It took me awhile to get the hang of using watercolour for gestures, but I came to really enjoy it. Anyway, this was my favourite out of all of the gestures.

Contour Self Portrait

An assignment for one of my classes. I'm pretty happy with how it came out considering I rarely do any contour drawing. The weight of the line is what really pulls it together. I might colour it later.

One of my favourite footballers. Usually I have trouble drawing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but today I think it worked out pretty well. I'm finally pulling out of my sickness and will be updating daily again soon.

Мой город

This is one of my finals. Unfortunately I don't have a real camera, so I had to use my crappy phone camera. I am decently happy with this but I liked it better before I coloured it with watercolour. The background images are both of Moscow.

Striker 02

I can't say I'm super pleased with this. I am stumbling in photoshop again and I feel that this came out looking super amateur. I am happy with the actual drawing and the colors I choose. The background just wouldn't work out for me but oh well. I had fun drawing this concept again.

Bloody Arshavin

I've wanted to draw this picture of Arshavin's injury a couple of years ago. It's one of my favourite photographs. Anyway, I'm not very happy with how it came out. It needs much more work but I am still unsure of how to make things look finished on photoshop. Oh well.

I've recently been looking through the photos of the protests going on in Russia. I was taken by the look of pride and accomplishment in each of the protesters faces, even when they were being arrested. To show my respect I decided to do a sketch of one. I'm decently happy with it.

This is sort of a stress relief type thing. I have a habit of doodling myself when I get overwhelmed. This time I really liked how it came out, so I ran with it. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

Alex Turner

Finally drew something that I like. It's been a struggle keeping up with my art since finals are happening. Next semester I will be able to draw on my own more

A photoshop sketch. I'm not really sure how I feel about this one. I've recently been told that my art isn't terribly expressive. I thought I'd tap into the ultimate expressive tool; the hands.

Arsenal Cards

Once again, finally got around to compiling my hard summer work into one single image. I have learned a lot about skin tone through this project. I lost a lot of likeness in most of the cards and a lot of players from the sketches didn't end up to be cards because I was working on the project during the transfer season. My goal is to redo all of these eventually.

Arsenal Sketches

Finally got around to compiling all of these into one file. Obviously this is the old first team since Na$ri and Cesc are still in there along with a couple others that have left the team since. I have to say, I feel pretty accomplished seeing it all put together. It was a lot of hard work, but it was one of the best projects I have put myself to work on. Gooner till I die.
