'By the Farmhouse', watercolour & oil paints on watercolour paper. 620x460mm.
Not quite as successful as the first painting using this method, I believe it works best on a small scale.

My computer work today has been like Kerplunk or Jenga. I know what I’m doing and what needs to be done but one slight false move brings everything crashing down to be rebuilt again.

I remember being on holiday when the last LOTR film came out and there was one rubbish-y cinema in town and they’d sold out but the guy at the counter said he’d let us in for like £3 if we stood at the back and my family were like …no it’s 3 hours are you crazy but my brother and I were just like YES straight away and that was the most uncomfortable but awesome cinema visit of my life.

When I I and my family went to see ‘The Return of the King’ at the point of the hobbits reaching mount doom and the destruction of the ring the cinema’s fire alarm when off. Forcing us the leave the building and for the screening to cease. I never saw the ending till the DVD release. It was the worst of cliffhangers  

Protoceratops head. Digital sculpture made entirely using Sculptris. I used my books as reference for the head and hopefully it’s recognisable is not completely accurate(not being a palaeontologist myself). I only used one texture, the painted flint work of the back of this blog, being the nearest to hand and working surprisingly well.

Sculptris is a free digital sculpting software. I experimented on friday and made this yesterday. Quite a while ago I tried a free trial of brush and this software is make by the same company Pixologic.

The software’s very nice to use and rather intuitive. It’s fun even just to play around with. One can download it here: http://pixologic.com/sculptris/
