I didn't really cry...

So I was out horseriding with my brother on Wednesday and went for a little canter in the stubble fields....except it didn't quite work out that way for me. The canter became a gallop and bye bye Gill. Straight off into a ditch full of mud and nettles. Rodrigo got a little(lot) carried away with himself and I had no choice in the matter. I was like a chocolate coated Gill after getting out of the ditch. Covered in mud. Hilarious!

Had trouble moving the next day....

Here is something a little different. I tend to stear clear of bgs, maybe something to do with a fear of perspective that grew on me over my years in college. This was a bg I did for an idea I was working on. Clearly you can see it is quite rough. But then my boss wanted to use it for something so he called in the heavies to fix it up a bit/lot.

and here are the results. Fran got to "Fransify" it and it turned out brilliant. This is what I am going to strive to do in future with my artwork. Take it to the next level and make it look like this. The composition works much better, shapes are more exciting, there is much more depth to it and the textures look great.

Amsterdam for my Birthday

I haven't been drawing but I have been really busy in work with the new project and with still no computer it makes things pretty difficult to squeeze in any blogwork. We have taken loads of staff on and every day seems to be another challenge but we are getting there....kinda.
I managed to get away for a few days to Amsterdam to visit my brother for my birthday weekend. After nearly missing our flight through no fault of our own, myself and Aido got there and had a deadly weekend. Seens lots of places and there was lots going on. We met some really cool people. It's always a pain having to come home when you have such a great time. There is some picyures anyway to keep my blog alive for another few weeks anyway.
