Fucking around with watercolors again, just a sketch I won’t be doing much more with. But reasonably happy with how the skin tone turned out.

Reblogging this so people can see it at a decent hour.

Some work form last year, Trickster Tales characters.

My piece inspired by The Fifth Element for The Fifth Element artbook. That movie was a staple on TV syndication as a kid and when it came on I never changed the channel.

I was asked by my university to be one of the 22 chosen to represent my  course. So I made these and will be exhibiting them on the 2nd -5th of July in the New Designers exhibition in London.

They’re all fingerpuppet sized, so the tip of your index finger is about the scale of a human head here.

There are another 10 masks I wanted to make, but with two weeks available, it wasn’t going to happen!

Mada’in Saleh - Modern Saudi Arabia - built between 100 BC - 100 AD

Built by the Nabataean Kingdom prior to Roman annexation, these series of tombs were abandoned by the time Islam became predominant in the region.
