How to create new characters – Meet Penni and Benni

Lots of watercolour painting in this video as I introduce the characters and concept of my new project – Penni and Benni.

This has been a long time coming and I’m going to use my new characters, Penni and Benni, to explain lots of things about character design and illustration.

It started with a book idea, but the characters have changed and developed and grown with me over the years and I have now decided to get them launched.

Starting with their Website – http://www.penniandbenni.com – and their instagram http://www.instagram.com/penniandbenni

In this video I show you how I draw and paint Penni and Benni whilst chatting and explaining some of what the project is all about.

There will be more about Penni and Benni in the coming weeks as I love towards launching them as a picture book kickstarter project.

Make sure you are subbed on the website here on YouTube and on instagram for updates.

Pandora Drawing Competition Results

Here are the results of the Pandora Drawing Compeition.

Well done to everyone that entered. Sorry if you’s didn’t get through on email. I’m afraid I don’t have the time to go chasing around social media looking to entries delivered in other ways.

All you had to do was watch the two videos, “How to draw Pandora” https://youtu.be/_ymBdT622hM and “How to draw Pandora’s box” https://youtu.be/ri_ME9gst50 and send me your own drawing based on the videos, elaborating your drawings, using your imagination and interpretation of the story of Pandora, and what you think may be hidden in her box.

The prize is a signed, limited, first-edition copy of Pandora, including the book, warning wrapper, inspirational poster and a sealed message from Pandora – there were only 100 copies printed in the first edition, so it is quite rare!
