tendybaby asked: I'm absolutely in love with that little snail skull flash you did.. Do you sell your drawings?

Thankyou :) of course, email me: Adam.ruff@live.co.uk and we can arrange something x

rachelwasherefirst asked: do you use water colour or liquid acrylics? any tips on how to blend?

I use drawing inks. I’ve found the FW range are the best but if you are using just black and grey then there are some really mic blacks out there to search for.
In regards to blending, I’m still a rookie, but, the key is putting down plenty of water first, everyone has there own little tweaks and methods though :)

Here’s some close-ups of last night’s A3 black & grey flash sheet.¬†For the full body shot, find me on instagram: adam_ruff // My legs feel like smashed placental sacks.

quick snapshot of a few of the bits I’m working on at the moment. Mothering Sunday is coming up so I’m gonna try and make a sheet for that :)

Think I’ve just done this on the wrong side of the paper… Taking a leaf out of @ronnieronson’s book.
