My Old Drawings

Seeing as I'm still making my way through A Game of Thrones and have nothing fantasy-book-related to post about in my daily-post-for-April-challenge, I do apologise for the slightly off topic posts!

Before I was 'into' dancing I was into acting, and before that I was into art and drawing (and before that it was singing and before that it was violin) - I've pretty much done the rounds in terms of arts. Drawing was a big part of high school for me because in my small group of friends, most of them were amazing artists/drawers so it kind of rubbed off.

We started off doing classical anime and then that kind of digressed into more personal styles of 'toonish' characters. Usually we would draw the lineart and then edit and colour in photoshop. I was a little sporadic in my efforts while a couple of my friends would finish several pieces a week.

I just thought I would share some with you ... These were done when I was around 16-17, except the last one was a few years ago and is the costume design for the character of Tyda in Fy (hopefully you can recognise it from the video on my previous post). 


  1. Those are cool drawings! I love the color in the top two.

    The Golden Eagle
    The Eagle's Aerial Perspective

  2. Very nice! I've always wanted to draw, but my talents lay elsewhere. Game of Thrones was a fantastic book...I'm 3/4 of the way through A Clash of Kings now. What an addictive series...

  3. Darling Daughter spends hours upon hours watching manga and bleach, drawing those same people and creating stories for them to act out. Very immpressive.

  4. Really? Awesome!

    Nice to meet you.


  5. Nicely done! I'm a new follower from the AtoZ Challenge. Nice to meet you. :)

  6. Oh wow. I can still only draw stick figures :)

    Hello from the A to Z!

  7. Those are some pretty cool pictures. It sounds like you've had every hobby in the books. (Except juggling. Maybe you should take up juggling . . . or deep sea fishing.)
    Thanks for posting!

  8. Hello, Joshua! These drawings are terrific. I wish I could draw!! I can only draw from a how-to drawing book, LoL.

    Have a great week and happy A to Z!!

  9. Fab drawings. I have only just started doing stuff on the computer - not very good at it I'm afraid!


  10. I like the black and white ones best. Besides writing, do you draw, sketch every day?
