A painting for the main page of my new website (very, very much under construction: http://www.helennorcott.co.uk/)
I was in a Game of Thrones/Dark Souls/Icelandic scenery sort of mood.
Inspired by the Virtual Plein Air group on Facebook.
This is why I never seem to get any work done.
Virtual Plein Air for the Facebook group. About an hour of brush experimentation.
don’t bring me flowers, my body can grow its own
colour/value practice gone awry
Love the colours!
30 minute spitpainting. Theme was Mesa Outpost.
Should have drawn something from Half Life in retrospect… dammit.
A quick sketch and some possible colour schemes. Inspired by the scenery in Game of Thrones and Skyrim.
Fun little bird studies!

Kvothe in Tarbean
I’ve been wanting to draw something from Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind books for a while now. Here’s the protagonist, Kvothe in the city of Tarbean.Process wise, this was a self-inflicted exercise in patience. This image has been sitting in my head for months, but I’ve avoided it, knowing how much work would be required to do the city justice. I’m still on the fence as to whether or not this level of complexity helped or hindered. Something more abstracted/vague may have given me a better result, sooner.
