Next up I recently started posting art videos to my youtube channel : https://www.youtube.com/user/scriar
So far I have 3 warm up sketches on there which you can see above, the first 2 are just simple time lapses with some free music on them, but the third has voice over, my latest one is a custom brush tutorial with a demo and is 2 hours long in realtime.
I am planning to create a custom shape tutorial and carry on working on the last sketch as part of the demo. And I have some ideas for other tutorials as well. I think I am going to carry on making videos, hopefully Ill get a decent mic at some point, at the moment the sound quality is awful. And I think I am getting a bit more comfortable talking and painting at the same time.
Ill probably get back to my Golden Bird project soon as well, I still have a bunch of tasks I set myself to design. And I think my Concept Art portfolio could still be padded out a bit.

Since I specialise in Environments design and Landscape Illustration I thought creating 'Land card' illustrations would be a good idea, I had Magic the Gathering and similar card games in mind when doing the thumbs. First up is a Winsterscape. I think ill do the castle one last, I am not 100% sure yet what to do for the next one, leaning towards the lava falls.

|Thumbnails for the Village with the two inns|
|Turnaround designs for the two inns|
|Final shot of the village with the two inns|
Some more work for my Golden Bird project.
In the story the brothers are told by the fox that when they get to an approaching village there will be two inns. One inn is described as mean and old and the other is nice, and full people merry making however they should stay at the mean inn. Of course only the younger brother listens, for his reward the fox returns and tells him where he can find the Golden Bird.
I went with the converted gatehouse design for the new inn since I thought it had a grandeur look to it. For the mean looking inn I went for a more layered asymmetrical design.

Thumbnails and the final design for the Golden Bird.
The Garden with the Golden Apple Tree thumbs. The story initially starts out with the apples of the Golden Tree disappearing, the Gardener is tasked by the king to investigate. He sets his sons each to guard the tree, but only his youngest son succeeds in discovering its the Golden Bird taking the apples.
