Even MORE “Never Seen Before” Failed Paintings From My Sketchbooks :)

2015 Artwork sketchbooks August sketch 2

Well, when it came to writing today’s article – I was slightly tired and I also couldn’t think of a good enough idea. So, instead, I thought that I’d show off a few more “never seen before” failed paintings (and a doodle) from my sketchbooks. Hopefully, I’ll write a proper article or review for tomorrow.

None of these paintings actually reached the “adding paint” stage, so they’re bascially just drawings in various stages of completion. Anyway, enjoy 🙂

This was a horror painting - in the style of an Iron Maiden album cover - that I'd planned to make. But, a while after I started it, I realised that it looked, well, kind of crappy. So, I ended up abandoning it.

This was going to be a painting of a gothic librarian. But, well, I couldn't think of a good enough idea for the background.

This was a random ink and coloured pencil sketch I made to test out a really cool art technique I saw on the back cover of Bad Religion's "All Ages" album.

This is a larger version of the wild west sketch from my last sketchbook post. Bascially, I tried to turn THAT little sketch into a larger painting, but it didn't turn out very well. And this is what it looked like.

This was going to be a painting of someone taking a photo with their phone, but I couldn't think of a good enough idea for the background and eventually ended up abandoning this picture.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this brief glimpse into my sketchbooks. Hopefully, I’ll write a proper article or review for tomorrow 🙂
