leatherboy

Geeetings

Here is another new drawing from my sketchbook.

I experimented with the use of Chinagraph to enhance this pencil drawing,which is a study based on one of Peter Berlin's self portrait photographs.

I think the Chinagraph has enhanced the leather quite nicely...




Until next time

Woodlore once more

Greetings

Here (because I could...) is Woodlore in various small bits of leather...


First, in chaps, long gloves, harness, collar and pouch


Next,  in harness  collar and pouch...


and, finally, just the collar and pouch..


I have decided I rather like the possibilities provided by using the layers in Photoshop..

I have now added the rest of the  more risque sequences for the pictures of Woodlore and Raven to the Elf pages of the Garden Of Dubious Delights section of my website.

Until next time

New drawing of young man

Greetings and a Happy New Year.

Here is a  new drawing from my sketchbook.

I call it  'Seated Youth'

Whilst I often work in colour, I like to brush up my skills in monochrome every now and again.

Until next time

Christmas Tree 2018

Greetings

As usual, I am in charge of all the festive decorations.

Here is the Christmas tree in its new position , due to re-arrangement of furniture ( Teddy even had to move some dolls... ).

 Here is the tree with its lights on.


As usual I shall be celebrating the full twelve days and will take the tree and decoration down after my Twelfth Night meal.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

Until next time

Season's Greetings 2018

Greetings

Every year I weave a new wreath onto  an old wreath frame, using evergreens from my garden.

This year, Teddy brought me a gift of some mistletoe, so I included it , alongside the usual holly, bay and yew.

Here is this year's wreath:

Woodlore, Woodland Elf

Greetings

This is a drawing I made  for another woodland elf character.


Here's how he came out photoshopped at the first attempt:


I then decided to have another go and make a similar use of layers to the work I had done to the picture of Raven.

The second version looks like this:

Without his jerkin, he looks like this:




As with the image of Raven, I will, at some point,add the remaining more risque versions of this image to the Garden of Dubious Delights pages of my website.

Until next time
