There is Always Inspiration.

January 22, 2011

As I sat yesterday evening scratching my head wondering what to draw I remember something one of my lecturers told me ‘if you’re feeling un-inspired just draw anyway’. I know it’s not the most epic or quote worthy piece of advice but none the less it rings true.

See, I haven’t done much drawing this week, aside from stuff in work and my usual daydream doodles so I felt a strong urge to at least draw something worth looking at. I thought and I thought, and what sprang to mind was something of constant inspiration, something so amazing and entertaining that always makes me want to put pencil to paper, and has done since I was about 4 (I’ve got school reports to prove it). I am of course talking about Zelda! and ‘A Link to the Past’ especially, which I’ve been playing through again. What I drew was all the cool items that aid you in your adventure.

I dunno how Link managed to fit all this in his bag, in fact he’s only got wee pockets, maybe they’re magic pockets. Anyways If you have a snes or a wii (with access to the virtual console) I strongly recommend A link to the Past. It may be 18 years old but its Zelda at its best.

So yea go play it.



Nintendo Power!

July 4, 2010

Hello! How’ve you been keeping?

I’ve been busy painting the last few days and would like to share my new pictures :) I’ve been lacking slightly in inspiration for the past wee while, I guess nothing all that interesting has been happening, so I thought to myself, what used to inspire me when I was a lil’ un? and of course it was computer games!

So I started off with my all time favourite series Zelda! Here’s Link, he’s found a triforce.

It’s based on the concept art for the first nes game where all the characters were a bit more cartoony which fortunately lent itself quite nicely to my style.

But It didn’t stop there! here’s a magic mushroom,they make mario grow big.

And so no mushroom is left out, I also painted a 1-up!

I’d love to do more stuff like this, but obviously I don’t want to turn into ‘that nintendo guy’ im only just getting over being commonly known as ‘the robot guy’ I do love it though, I remember reading my first school report card which went something like ‘Neil could go far if he spent less time doodling video game characters on his jotter and more time on his work’ and that was pretty much the same right through to secondary school :P

Alright I’ll stop geeking out now.

take care!

A Link To The Past

November 21, 2009



As some of you may know im a massive computer games nut, and my favourite series hands down is the legend of Zelda!

So to pay tribute to this i painted a little scene from ocarina of time (widely known as the best game ever.)

This is Link vs Volvagia!

I honestly had the most fun in the world painting this :)

In other news i have some exciting stuff going on over the Christmas period, more about that soon :P

take care!
