Illustration Friday: Get to the Kernel

(Click image to enlarge!)

I haven't submitted anything to Illustration Friday for a little while now, so felt like I had to now that I'm free from the tyranny of University work.

I would have much rather coloured this with inks, but I'm running very low on a few art supplies at the moment.

I had absolutely no idea what Kernel was, apparently its the softer bit on the inside of a nut or seed.

Site Updates & Dino Poll

So I've made a few updates to the site.
The most apparent is probably the new banner.
The last one had a tendency to glitch and start repeating its self for some reason, and I'm not even so sure I liked it that much anyway.

This new one is much more to my tastes.

I've also updated the Animations page with a few little bits of information and swapped the video hosts from YouTube to Vimeo, mainly just because I prefer the format.

I don't have many drawings I can upload at the moment, and I'm still working away on my Drawing Studies whenever I'm not procrastinating with a game, film or book.

I do however have these here Dino's, both drawn traditionally, but one coloured with inks and the other digitally.

I'm quite interested to know which people prefer, so those of you who visit my site fairly regularly (I know you exist, there are records that say so!) please take a second to vote on the poll below the image to let me know, or even write a comment on this post going in to a bit more detail if you're feeling especially generous!

Which Dino do you prefer?

Almost done with my 2nd year of Uni now!

Most of my work has been handed in, (apart from Drawing Studies which we have an extra 2 weeks to work on) and I can finally spend a bit of time on good lovely fun stuff.

I've had lots of games and books I'm stuck part way in to and I really need to finish them all off.
I also have a half finished animation that I really want to sort out at some point, though I need to wait on voices for that.

Other than that, nothing particularly interesting.

I went to see The Cabin in the Woods and Avengers (assemble) and both are absolutely fantastic!

Got to see Chronicle a little while ago too which was as close to Akira as I think a live action film is going to get any time soon.

Have been taking a little bit of a break from games due to work, but the other day I played through the first episode of The Walking Dead by Telltale Games which was great!
I'd been a little worried about it as the last few games by Telltale I've played I didn't enjoy as much as I have there older games, but they really did a good job on it and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do in the later episodes.

Though I have to say, the Hershel that appears in the game is very very inconsistent with the one from the comics and show, but it really didn't bother me too much.
Glenn was much more fateful to the comic though.

Here's a little photoshop I did to finish this post off.
