Adventures In Faeryland – August Illustrations

The theme for August was faeries and I had so much fun with these! Tried out some new techniques and things, and I’m really pleased this time with the direction my digital illustrations are going. As difficult and time-consuming as some of the detail work was on these I feel like it was worth it, as the pieces all turned out as something I’m proud of. And these really were a challenge for most of the month, as August was a Bad Wrist month for me. The RSI gods were not smiling on me at all, but dammit I got my work done anyway!

With all that said, for September I’m going to be trying something different, rather than full illustrations. Doing the ones I’ve done over the past few months I’ve learned a lot about how I want to move forward working in this style, so it’s time to try something new and push my creativity at something other than full page illustrations.

And in the meantime, if you want to see my warm-up sketches and WIP’s you should absolutely follow me over on Instagram (@flailingmuse), on my Facebook page (samspicerillustration), and on my Tumblr (incoherentmuses).

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, part 2

More Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell fanart! These were so much fun to do, I had a blast coming up with them. If you still haven’t read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, then you should go ahead and do it, because it’s such a wonderful, magical book. There’s a miniseries too, which I own but still haven’t got round to watching – I will eventually! I have a lot of things to watch, okay? – but I hear that’s very good as well.

I’m not sure what my next narrative project will end up being. I’ve read some good books lately, but nothing’s jumped out at me for wanting to make some art for it. I own a lot of books though, so I’m sure I’ll find something!
