NEVER SEEN BEFORE! Sketchbook pages and failed paintings :)

2014 Artwork It's more sketchbook pages again sketch

Well, since I can’t think of a good idea for a proper article today, I thought that I’d take you on yet another mysterious tour through the unseen pages of my sketchbooks.

And, as a bonus, I’ll also include a few failed paintings (in various stages of completion. Most of them are just unfinished lineart, but one is a finished piece of fan art I decided not to post here on the 27th October [?]) and an alternate version of a painting that I posted here back in September.

(Although it’s hopefully obvious, you can click on each of the images in this post to see a larger version of them.)

So, let’s get started πŸ™‚

This is the original colour version of the "Not Quite Bill Hicks" painting I posted here in September.  Unforutnately, I messed up the skin tones in this picture - which made it look like something from a horror movie.

It's a drawing of a Victorian villain and an account of a dream where I bought  ludicrously overpriced drinks in a restaurant.

This was my original plan for the "Seven Useless Sources Of Artistic Inspiration" cartoon I posted on here sometime in September or October (?). Sorry about the censorship, but I'm not quite sure what the rules are for profanity and nudity on WordPress.

This was an attempt to draw the sea at sunset, based on a scene I saw in an episode of "Burn Notice".

This was a failed attempt at making a painting of Claudia Black and Lena Headey. I'd originally planned to post this on here on the 27th October (?), but I didn't really feel like it was quite good enough - so I replaced it with a generic landscape painting at the time.

These were my plans for the "April Fools' Day" article I posted here earlier this year. And, yes, I'd originally planned to include a 'trollface' picture at the end of it.

These were some random doodles based on a webcomic I made in 2010 called "Yametry Run".

Although I’ll post my usual monthly “top ten” article here tomorrow, hopefully I’ll think of some ideas for proper (non-filler) articles for January.

Anyway, I hope that this was interesting πŸ™‚
