Bee and Puppycat- Spacewalk by Rizathepenguin
Bee and Puppycat- Spacewalk
So would you believe me if I told you that this painting looks way better in real life? ^^; My scanner sort of murdered it and I tried to fix it as best I could with photoshop, but when I got the colour and the detail back, all of the 'softness' of the watercolour had vanished :( And of course, you can't see any of the shiny bits... (I'm going to try to take some better photos of this and put them on my tumblr ( and then maybe I'll swap out this scan for a better one) But, this painting has been sitting half- finished on my desk for months so I wanted to just DO IT and upload this on Da.

Oh well- I guess I'll learn better photoshop skills as of September- I'm officially studying Illustration at Arts University Bournemouth this September! I'm so excited! :iconlingdanceplz: I'm going to work hard! I'm going to learn so much! I'M GOING TO BE LIVING 5 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE SEASIDE!! And on the seafront there's a zip wire running from the pier to the beach across the sea! How cool!

But yeah. Hard work. Much draw many draw.

I tried a new way of working for this piece- I used collage to layer the image, so I could work on it like it was a digital painting and move everything around. I'm pleased with how soft the colouring turned out (only IRL sadly ><) and the 3d effect of the collage elements works quite well too :)


I know I've been kind of on an unexpected internet hibernation this summer, and I'm sorry for that, but I promise I have been working! I've written the entire first draft of the storyboard for 'The Gentlemen', and now I'm stuck into the editing phase! (This is going to be the longest comic I've worked on by far, so I want to make sure I have the best story possible!)

For more updates on my work and WIPs, my artblog is at and for updates on the cat videos I've been watching, my personal blog is at

If anyone has some image editing tips, or general feedback on my painting, comments would be very much appreciated! Thanks for reading! :iconsparklesplz: 
Does anyone know how I can upload an MP4 to dA? I made a short animation for my college project and I'm trying to upload it here, but dA keeps blocking me!

Do I just need to change the file type? What kind of files does dA accept, anyway?

>< Maybe I'll just upload it to like vimeo or tumblr or something and link to it... ><

(In other news, I'm watching Samurai Jack for the first time and its fricken' amazing! anyone else wanna fangirl about it with me?! :D)

Artist | Student | Varied
United Kingdom
I'm an illustration student currently in my first year at Arts University Bournemouth in England.
I love to draw and to tell stories, whether in comic book form (I've been shortlisted twice for the UK Japanese Embassy's 'Manga Jiman' competition) or in animation, illustration or other media! My mission in life is to create art that will make other people's lives a little better.

I like to draw and paint, but I also love to work with textiles, 3D papercraft, and embroidery.

My art tumblr is at spacesplosion. where I post lots more photos of my art and my personal tumblr is where I reblog cool dogs and choice puns.
