My very first foray into digital painting back in May 2009. I scanned my pencil sketch and brought it up in Corel 3, and then used a Wacom tablet and stylus and about a thousand layers to paint it…About 35 or so, anyway. 😉 Armour is so much fun to do in a digital programme.
I have a larger monitor now; it’s much better for doing digital art!
One of my favourite scenes from the BBC’s Robin Hood series, 2006. It turned into one of my favourite G of G paintings too. I think he was asking Maid Marian about a scarf he’d given to her.
Acrylic paints and watercolour pencils on 18 x 13cm paper, 2008. The last pic shows how I’ve played around with its hue & saturation and contrast in a computer programme. (Not PS though.)
I think I made his nose a bit too pointy in this one! Oh well, here it is anyway.
Water soluble graphite pencils on 18 x 13cm watercolour paper.
Maid Marian receives a really splendid horse from Sir Guy of Gisborne.

I found this photo I took years ago of a bunch of my Robin Hood series fan-art paintings, featuring Robin, Maid Marian – and lots of Guy of Gisborne, of course.

Isabella and Guy of Gisborne. I don’t think they liked each other much.
2B pencil, water-soluble graphite pencil on paper, and then into Photoshop (I think, or even Corel Painter? – I did this five years ago) for putting in the background grey colour, and for some skin-smoothing, plus a bit of texture in their hair.
