Best Of The Blog (1st – 31st July 2014)

2014 Artwork Best of The Blog 31st July Sketch

In case anyone is new to this blog, “Best Of The Blog” is a monthly feature where I provide a list of links to all of the articles about art, writing etc.. that I’ve posted here over the past month (excluding reviews and daily art posts).

All in all, this has been a pretty good month and I’m quite proud of most of the articles here 🙂 Another thing that you may have noticed this month is that all of my articles now feature full colour sketches at the beginning, rather than the old B&W sketches.

Whilst I initally switched over to colour sketches in order to conserve my limited supplies of black pencils, it adds a bit more personality to each article and I think that I’ll probably keep using it in subsequent articles.

Anyway, here are this month’s articles. Enjoy 🙂
