Something bouncy and something with a sting in its tail.

When I was a child, it was my ambition to be an artist, but as time passed, that waned somewhat, and, although I’ve done quite a bit of cartoony/illustrative/digital stuff over the years, ‘fine art’ is pretty much alien territory for me. However, I recently broke my arm quite badly, an injury which left me with almost no grip in my right hand. Rather than squeezing a stress ball for hours on end, I thought I’d pick up a pencil and see whether I could produce anything.

These are the first two pencil sketches I’ve ever done, and my first two attempts at anything approaching photo-realism… I still have a way to go, I know, but I’m quite pleased with them 🙂
