Lots of photographs – There are some photos from the amazing birthday my girlfriend threw for me – she organised my friends to come over from Ireland and my brother from Bristol! Alongside that is the trip to Oxford we took the other day – Pitt Rivers, which I recommend everyone to go to (honestly who doesn’t like a shrunken head or two…) and the science museum. There are some really amazing creations there, hand crafted, precision metal machining – amazing stuff! Alrighty, hope you like the photos, more videos that I have been meaning to upload coming soon –

Looking around

Here’s a quick speedpaint, about an hour – painted over a sketch. Nothing to fancy, had a play with the graphic overlays afterwards, which I think I prefer. Just playing with some brushwork etc. Part of broken perception, as a test. At the bottom is the initial sketch which I uploaded a couple of days ago.

Portrait Practice

Posted in illustration, Portraits, Sketches with tags , , , , on July 12, 2010 by alexpkaiser

Starting to play with more portrait work.  Mainly stylized rather than pure realism.  This first one is a self-portrait, analyzing some elements of the face in more detail. The other 4 have a more  playful/quick approach – trying to catch a little dynamism within the poses. Some are the beginning of an attempt to work graphics/line work into painterly setting. Experimenting is fun!
