The Offering – Preliminary Sketch

An offering offering insight into the offering!

Well now that I’ve got that out of my system we can get into the point of this offering, a preliminary sketch for an oil painting that I’ll be starting at some point in the next fortnight.

Admittedly things have been quiet on the drawing front of late as I’ve just finished up an oil painting that I’ll be publishing over the weekend and I began a journey into the world of the Vikings and started a small scale longship build – [Click Here]

However, in the spare time that I did manage to miraculously find I started working out ideas for another piece for the lore of ‘The Leaves of Hellebore’.

Without further ado, here it is –

Morning Coffee & Sketch – Part XXI

Good Morning!

Welcome to my Morning Coffee & Sketch series; it has been a great journey so far, I have learned an awful lot as well as loosened up with my sketching. The ideas flow nicely and many of which will eventually become fully detailed artworks; I’m working on two at the moment which will soon become oil paintings.

Anyway straight to it this morning as I’m already running late, I had to run an errand earlier this morning and that threw a bit of a spanner in the works but I’ve managed to knock up a quick sketch and get this post in order to publish.

Here’s today’s sketch –

Morning Coffee & Sketch – Part XX

Good Morning!

Welcome to another milestone post in my Morning Coffee & Sketch series; this morning we return to a sketch created for my Leaves of Hellebore visual fantasy novel!

Today’s coffee of choice is a standard Americano served in the largest cup I have which is probably double the size of a normal one; I needed it this morning.

Moving on, here is today’s sketch –

Morning Coffee & Sketch – Part XIX

Good Morning!

Welcome to my Morning Coffee & Sketch series, I don’t usually post one over the weekend and as far as I can remember this is the first time I have; but I couldn’t resist getting a sketch out this morning.

I had a really productive day yesterday with painting and I have no almost completed the oil painting of the first piece of the main storyline for my Leaves of Hellebore visual fantasy novel. Also today I’ll be starting on another drawing for the history and lore of the world I am creating for that IP.

Moving on anyway, this morning’s sketch is another inspired by the History TV show Vikings.

Morning Coffee & Sketch – Part XVIII

Good Morning!

Welcome to the eighteenth installment of my Morning Coffee & Sketch series!

This morning I have decided to draw on another show that inspires me in a very big way; History Channel’s TV series Vikings. The show is so rich and everything from the landscape to the costume design and the casting is second to none in this field.

I decided to do a quick sketch inspired by the show’s main protagonist Ragnar Lothbrok. I didn’t go for an exact likeness but whilst sketching it occurred to me that I will create a more detailed piece of Ragnar further down the line, his character is a very interesting one and his image is insanely inspiring.

Anyway, here’s the sketch –

Morning Coffee & Sketch – Part XV

Good Morning!

Welcome to part fifteen of my Morning Coffee & Sketch series, in honour of keeping the momentum I have another sketch and have ingested another ton of caffeine since the last post yesterday!

For this sketch I decided to use the sanguine pastel pencil again on the watercolour paper that I stained with the nut brown ink a while back, it’s a nice feeling working on a toned paper the form just seems to appear immediately.

Anyway, here is this morning’s sketch –
