The Practical Potioneer

A digital painting of Severus "Snivellus" Snape from the Harry Potter books.

The sketch from a corner of a page

I liked the half hearted sneer I was getting as I worked the face, but this was more about me hammering digital paint into submission and trying to make it do something new for me rather than showing the character, but it would be nice if I got both. Either way, I like the whole thing, although I don't like snape himself.

Black Night Pages

Hello all, I hope you're all loving the new year.

Here are the first two pages I have done for the next Islander Art Magazine comic type thing, since it's titled Black Night, I went for a scary story.

The story itself is an old campfire story, I just padded it out a bit.

I tried using the Loomis method of skewed perspective and jagged shapes to create an unsettled feeling throughout.

I also added a layer of noise over the inks to help it match the font I chose as well as make it a bit more rustic and remove the clean finish of digital inks.
