Here is a little illustration, i did a quick doodle in the sketchbook during inktober and wanted to see what it was like in colour, i did 4 different versions of this and posted on Facebook and twitter and this was the one that most people chose as the best colour.

Fox

This was a little test, playing around with a Watercolour brush in Photoshop, wanted a softer feel to the image.

Triceratops

This was just a little test image trying out some different styles of colouring.

Gone Fishing

This started as a small doodle in my sketchbook which i scanned into photoshop and coloured, i like this image its a new style of colouring for me and i don't usually use Dot eyes, but i like the subtle colours and feel to the image.

Treehouse Chilling

This started as a doodle in the sketchbook one morning and then i worked on it in photoshop, i tried a more chalky sort of colouring and really enjoyed doing this one, i wanted a summer evening feel to the colours. i'd definitely like to work on this style of colouring.

Under the sea

This was done in the same sort of style of colouring as the treehouse image, again really fun to do and also started as a doodle in the sketchbook.

Sharks

This was a quick illustration for a #Colour_Collective over on twitter and Facebook, just playing around really, did a few shark doodles in my sketchbook one day sitting by a canal and coloured them in photoshop.

I'm starting some famous people sketches and thought i would start with Billy the Kid, i kept it sketchy with a rough outline and simple shadows and highlights, i think it gives it a light free feel to it. Done in Photoshop.
