It's probably obvious to anyone who's watched me for a while that I don't write journals very often. However, this is something I'm intending to rectify, and to start with I thought I'd show you all some of the kind of stuff I've been up to. :meow:

Early last year I was hired to create a series of cartoons to illustrate a video being made for the German law firm Anwaltskanzlei Weiß & Partner, informing people of their services advising and defending people accused of online piracy.…

All the images you see in the video were made by Yours Truly. A departure from my usual style, but nonetheless and enjoyable exercise in adapting to the needs of a client. I feel being able to change stylistic gears like that is a useful - possibly crucial - skill for any aspiring illustrator. 

:happybounce: A few of my favourite of the cartoons are in my gallery for closer enjoyment. :happybounce:

Hi, I'm CrimsonMagpie. I've always been a dick, but then I got radiation poisoning and now I'm a giant dick. I create art, and sometimes understand the things that happen around me.


Spoils by CrimsonMagpie
Last Christmas I broke open a folder of photos I'd taken in college for a project and drew something from them. This Christmas I broke open my drawings folder and coloured it. :dummy: 

Although I'm fairly confident in the digital colouring techniques I use I'm always looking to improve, so feedback is welcomed. :meow:
Don't Get Up by CrimsonMagpie
Don't Get Up
For some reason this old practice piece of mine gets more positive attention than I feel it deserves, so it made an ideal candidate for a bit of playing around with colour schemes during some holiday down-time. :meow:

Love Song by CrimsonMagpie
Love Song
A little something from earlier in the year. This was one of my girlfriend's birthday presents from me; a portrait of her favourite singer, Vanessa Paradis, performing at a then-recent live date, printed out as a bespoke poster. :dummy: 

She also has the original hanging on her wall. :p
Stalingrad Dawn by CrimsonMagpie
Stalingrad Dawn
Five years ago, whilst still in college, I made my first proper comic; a fictionalised telling of the battle of Pavlov's House, told from the point of view of a resident of the titular building who joins the resistance in the Battle of Stalingrad. For practical reasons it was entirely black & white, but I liked the last panel and wanted to colour it for my own satisfaction. However, coursework took priority and I forgot about this. 

Since then I've made several abortive attempts to colour this using various different methods... none for some reason working. Then, a few days ago I remembered this thing, and decided to put my recently acquired digital skills to use and finally finish this thing. :dummy:

So yeah, long story short; this image has a lot of history; longest gestation of any pic in my gallery.  :B

\/ Here's the original, if you're interested.

Mooncalves're like buses.... :iconjuap:

This is a warm-up sketch from a few weeks ago that got the colour treatment. I've gotten into the habit of setting aside a half-hour or so before bed for little indulgences like this. :meow:
