Today I was featured in Computer Arts... as a man.

Well, I would like to clarify, I am female, I don't wear glasses and I most certainly do not have a beard! Today I popped to my local WHSmiths and picked up a copy of Computer Arts, I was pleasantly surprised to see my work in this issue! I knew they were publishing it but I didn't know when... but... then something struck me. Something about it wasn't quite right...

I burst out laughing in the middle of Smiths, so in a way Computer Arts have made my day but I'm surprised such a well known and respected magazine would make such a cock-up. Just incase people are wondering THIS is what I look like-

Anyway! If you would like to see the royal blunder in real life and have a good old chuckle and my gender misfortune you can see it in this issue -

Hope you all have a good week!

Black Trumpet Lion - The works in progress

I've not updated for a while because I've wanted to save my "sneak peek" pictures for a long blog post that shows in order my works of progress and a hint to my process. This particular piece took a lot longer than I had hoped so this post has been a long time in the making. I'll start with the finished illustration, My black trumpet lion-

Now for the progress images and some nice detail shots-

Sneak Peek.

I know I know. I need to start updating my blog more. I've been so busy setting up my etsy and moving home I guess I forgot about this space. Anyway, as promised in the title of this post a sneak peak! I'm currently working on something, it's a bit of an experiment so it could go horribly wrong... but let's not be pessimistic. So here it is so far, the skull anatomy of a she-lion.

I know, it's not done but I'm getting there. So what's the experiment you ask? It looks a bit dull you say? This is one of three layers which incorporate different levels of anatomy, bones, muscle and skin. I'll be trying to illustrate all three into one image. Once I get more done. you'll see what I mean and hopefully it'll look top notch.

Other news! I was featured in this edition of Digital Arts! Harassing people by email finally paid off. I'm so chuffed and it's so nice to actually see your work in print. I apologise for the awful mug shot, it was kind of last minute and I'm an awful subject for photos.

So, how has everybody's week been? Is anyone working on something fun?
