Today’s Art (27th January 2018)

Well, I was still in the mood for 1980s-style heavy metal art \m/ However, unlike yesterday’s painting, this painting ended up going in more of a horror/fantasy direction than a cyberpunk one.

This painting was going to be set in a futuristic version of Tokyo but I messed up the perspective slightly and ended up having to cover up a badly-drawn building by turning it into the giant fire-breathing monster on the left side of the painting. And, after that, the picture went in a more fantastical direction.

Today’s Art (26th January 2018)

Well, after finishing my recent webcomic mini series, I was expecting to feel uninspired. But, although it took me a couple of tries, today’s digitally-edited painting turned out surprisingly well 🙂

Basically, after discovering a few really cool modern New Wave Of British Heavy Metal-style bands on Youtube (and, yes, new bands in this timelessly awesome sub-genre are actually a thing 🙂 The best one I found was probably a band called “Unleash The Archers” and I must have listened to this music video of theirs at least twenty times. ), I was in the mood for some retro heavy metal art \m/ … with cyberpunk elements too, because …well.. it is one of my paintings.

“Future Metallic” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art (27th December 2017)

Well, today’s (heavily) digitally-edited painting was originally going to be a perspective experiment (eg: trying to draw a “selfie”-like perspective). But, it quickly ended up turning into a random 1980s/90s cyberpunk style painting instead.

Today’s Art ( 20th October 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the cover illustration for this year’s Halloween comic 🙂 Stay tuned for the next page tomorrow 🙂

Unlike previous Halloween comics, this one will hopefully be in full colour and I’ll be using the ‘rectangular’ format that I used in my previous webcomic mini series. But, unlike that mini series, this one will be a narrative comic, like last year’s Halloween comic.

Links to many more comics featuring these characters can be found here, if anyone is interested 🙂

Today’s Art (16th October 2017)

Well, today’s digitally-edited painting is another Aberystwyth painting. Originally, I’d planned to make some gothic horror art, like this drawing from 2015 (which is based on the same old photo that I took in 2009). But, whilst editing this painting, I decided that it would be interesting to go in more of a 1980s horror VHS cover/horror novel cover kind of direction instead.

Today’s Art (11th October 2017)

Yes! Today’s digitally-edited painting was originally just going to be a painting of a bookshop/newsagents from the early 2000s. But, I was feeling even more inspired than I had expected, so it ended up going in a much more interesting 1980s/90s cyberpunk style direction 🙂 And, yes, I used a bit of artistic licence since – were I to draw a realistic early 2000s horror bookshelf, it’d probably consist of at least 50% Stephen King novels…

And, yes, I consider this painting to be a belated part of one of my two “awesome stuff” art series (here’s a page containing links to the first one, I can’t remember if I compiled the second one into a single post)
