What am I doing? where is my twitter and facebook?

Well, I've been quite busy to tell the truth. And as far as twitter and facebook go, well, I've put that all behind me now and deleted them. What I found is that I don't need them, I don't really like them and they take up too much time doing, well, I don't really know what they did apart from take up time and effort.

So what now? well, I'll not be doing so much of the Youtube stuff either, I won't be deleting that account, no point deleting all that hard work. But there will be the odd video here and there I'm sure.

I've re discovered my love of art and intend to explore it as much as I can in my spare time. I love figure drawing and painting, starting to get into landscape painting and maybe do some sculpture in the future. Who knows. The point is I don't want to limit myself and my art in any way.

I'll also be getting back into making games, it's something I've thought about after a bit of a break from the industry and I feel the time is right to start that up again.

You can contact me on Youtube if you need to, but I won't be making any intros for you, so please don't ask that. I don't have the time.

Anyhow, sorry if you missed me on twitter and facebook and thanks for your support on there, but I felt these sites only served to hold me back.
Look out for some games and art from me soon. I'm keeping very very busy.

take care all

: )

Learning to paint and the BP Portrait Award 2015

At the start of the year I decided to teach myself to paint. I can draw ok but never really tried painting seriously. Just one of those things you'll tell yourself you'll someday do, but never do. So I thought I'd give it a bash, and seeing that I like drawing people where better to start than portraiture. I did my first at the beginning of Feb, here it is...

It isn't great but I was happy that I'd started and it was really great fun to do.
It was around that time I'd heard about the BP portrait contest again and I thought it would be the perfect excuse to get better
at art. So I decided that I would enter the contest in 2015. Not seeking to win anything of course, the quality of work there is just superb, but just to give myself a goal and to try and push myself to get anywhere near the standard they set.

So I have kept painting now for about 3 months. I don't have anyone to sit for me so I've settled for self portraits, not ideal but at least I know I can stand there for a long time. It's great practice at least.

These are all painted from life, I'm not really interested in using photos at this moment in time.
They're also in the order that I painted them.

This is where I decided to swap acrylic paints with oil paints.

And that's it for now. I'll do another update on this in another 3 months time. Still a lot of work to do and I'm really enjoying it.

Matt.
