My name is Alastair Mclauchlan. I work as a video games artist by day at a place called Rockstar North in Edinburgh, Scotland. Here you will find things I've been working on in my spare time.
Why am i doing this blog? Well, recently I listened to a speech made by Neil Gaiman to the University of Arts graduates, 2012. I found this hugely inspiring. Especially the part about seeing your goal as a distant mountain and ensuring that each step you take should be on a path headed towards that mountain. So I'm hoping with this blog I can record some of those steps.
The above sketch is something I did last week at a life drawing class on the Ipad - I love using the Brushes app for this as you get to see all the choices ( or in my case mistakes ) you made along the way.
