Today’s Art (6th January 2015)

Well, originally, I was going to make a gothic horror “Alice In Wonderland” drawing. But, my original idea for this didn’t really look that great (in fact, it looked like a blatant rip off of “American McGee’s Alice”), so I decided to erase most of my sketch and do something slightly different instead and this drawing ended up looking like some kind of demented childrens’ book illustration for some wierd reason.

Today’s Art (1st August 2014)

Well, I suddenly realised that I haven’t made a gothic “Alice In Wonderland” painting for a while, so I decided to make one for today 🙂

Anyway, although I really like how this painting turned out – it required way more digital editing than usual after I scanned it.

Today’s Art (30th March 2014)

Ha! I’ve finally produced some good art again 🙂 Yes, both of these pictures are drawings rather than watercolours (and one required a bit more digital editing than usual) but I finally seem to be getting back on form again 🙂

"Portraiture" By C. A. Brown

“Portraiture” By C. A. Brown

Portraiture” was kind of a random drawing, but I wanted to see if I could create realistic art with coloured pencils rather than watercolours and, although the original of this picture looks better than the digital version (even after some editing), I’m quite proud of how this picture turned out 🙂

"Curiouser and Curiouser" By C. A. Brown

“Curiouser and Curiouser” By C. A. Brown

Curiouser And Curiouser” started out as a random doodle and it quickly ended up turning into a rather cool gothic ‘Alice In Wonderland’-themed drawing 🙂

Today’s “Damania” Comics (15th November 2013)

Both of today’s “Damania” comics are parodies/pastiches of old 19th century art/illustrations and this was basically an excuse to try out a couple of different drawing styles.

However, one of these comics ended up being drawn as a last-minute replacement for another comic (which will now be published at least a month later).

As usual, these two comics are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.

"Damania - A Study In Mauve" By C. A. Brown

“Damania – A Study In Mauve” By C. A. Brown

Damania – A Study In Mauve” is a pardoy/pastiche of Sidney Paget’s original illustrations for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes” stories when they were originally published in The Strand Magazine in the 19th century.

I’m seriously proud of the art in this comic, even if the ending is slightly predictable.

"Damania - Curiouser" By C. A. Brown

“Damania – Curiouser” By C. A. Brown

Damania – Curiouser” is a somewhat rushed and cliched comic (based on John Tenniel’s illustrations for Lewis Carroll’s “Alice In Wonderland”) which I drew to replace another comic I’d drawn a couple of weeks earlier.

I’ll publish this other comic (based on Hokusai’s “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa”) in at least a month’s time, but it’d probably be in bad taste if I published it now due to various things which have been in the news recently.
