Long time no post!

I've been neglecting this old blog since I got the zumf.co.uk site up! It doesn't deserve to be left out in the cold so heartlessly so I'll give the old fella's hairy belly a good old scratch now.

Because the company that the site was registered to has become a devious crooked organisation, the site may be down for a while. They wanted to charge me extra for renewing it and tried some very crude, underhanded tactics to try and get me to pay for services I didn't want, so I'm letting it expire.

Hopefully I'l get it back up before the end of the month, but if that fails I'm going to have to register a new domain-name, which sucks.

I've been very very very lazy with not doing ARTS and animation. I don't have any excuse except a low-self-esteem issue and sheer LAZINESS. Maybe some time in a hippy nature commune would get me back on track and looking at life more positively... Who knows? For now I'm just gonna have to bully myself into action or tempt myself by promising to buy an Amazon Kindle for myself as a reward...

I did this for my mum's birthday - Believe it or not, she did ask for something like this! She was planning to make a clay sculpture and wanted ideas.

This is a little departure for me, because I've drawn a relatively symmetrical face that's not (too) ugly! Also I made sure when I was drawing it not to use total black or white, because I've ruined a few by over-darkening them which makes it difficult to adjust afterwards.

Enjoy Facefaceface!

Zombie o' clock!

"Ahhhhrrahhcchhh!!! Nnnaaang!"
- That's what he'll be screaming as he runs towards you.

This was actually a very cute, cartoony zombie back when I started it. I didn't do a great job with the form and colours of it at first so it was left in my pile of unfinished pics until now. Decided to go to town on the putrid ,stringy flesh and stretched skin and tendons.

I've been told I need more BLOOD. Yes. Yes I do.

New blog layout!

I've gone into the guts of the html and sorted out a few width and general aesthetic issues (didn't realise you could do that with Blogger!) Wordpress makes you pay to tinker with the code which is a massive saucepan of wank.

Lookin for ideas

Since some of my best work comes from suggestions from friends, I'm asking people for theirs! I'm looking to diversify the pictures I do, but would like to keep to the same sort of style I used for Mr Swann.

So if you've got requests, reply below!

Ok! Going to be working on a scanned in sketch soon

Based on my character "Mr Swann", who's not a very nice man. Will hopefully be uploading it later on tonight.
