Every now and then i get an urge to draw knights and often ninjas. Why? I have absolutely no idea. Maybe it’s simply because i am bizarre. The bravery, the armour, the swords, the honour. When it comes to movies, series, books or anything to do with knights and even more so knights and dragons then i can’t help but watch, read and jump excitedly like a panda winning the jackpot at a bamboo fair.
I used to have (and still do) Rayman on the Game Boy and darn did i love that game. My parents didn’t buy me many games so this was one of the games i loved so much i had completed it a few times, and once holding the Game Boy upside down throughout; now that was a challenge. These doodles were inspired by Rayman with a super hero twist.
A series of quick doodles just randomly done of various weapons, not because I’m a violent man, no, i am the gentle type, but more because vastness of use of imagination when it comes to time periods, technology and material. Each one took about a minute to do after all they are doodles.
Well… this looks overly simplistic but i thought I’d show you these because, well, this is where it begins. This smallest glimmer of something big. Just drawing or doodling a simple scruffy aircraft or a simple and scruffy jetpack may seem worthless, but if you think about it with a second first impression you’ll notice that these little doodles (often thrown away) could be expanded on to make such a more detailed spaceship based on the same concept, or a pair of jetpacks that is stylishly sharp looking. But they all come from somewhere and it’s those scruffy little doodles that pack a whole lot of imagination.
A simple collection of three simple doodles based round jewellery. Sometimes the simplest of drawings can be all you need. These were inspired by the original first instalment of the Diablo game series where these little jewellery pieces are the support of all your warrior attributes, such as adding vitality, magic, strength and even resistance to the elements.
Yep I’m giving you a little more than usual this time. Why? Because i love you all of course. These are a series of symbols i used to see in my dreams. I have no idea why i saw them but i did, and i drew then as soon as i woke up. You can see the variations from symbols to slightly 3rd dimensional, to pendant form. Unusual i know but nevertheless they were doodles worth mentioning.
