grayscale...

...last week was a slow but then productive week and this week looks like it will be a pretty ram jammed packed busy week! yesterday we went along to the Manchester Day Parade. there were some fab floats, people, things, creations and dancing. i took some photos but the batteries are dead so after a re-charge i will try post some up. it is all go this week so I best crack on but the sunlight is bouncing off my desk, blinding my eyes. up above there, is a lion I painted and then decided to grayscale him out on the computer. he looks good, bit body-less of course but i was playing about with watercolours, pencil marks and crayons, more of which is to come later. i am torn between illustration and craft. one feeds the other and vice-versa. i enjoy both but the main focus is the story. the drawings are going good. i quite like the challenge of drawing a consistent character, favourite being the ringmaster and he is a PERSON!
