I am the law!

A 'secret santa' sketch i created for someone who I hope doesn't check my blog :)
Another first :) never drawn Dredd before either.

I decided to have a crack at drawing Orko from the MOTU as i'd never done it before. It started off as a warm up sketch and i got a little carried away :)
It took about 4 hours from pencil sketch to finished painting.

the Gentleman & the Cad

A work in progress piece this. Some character designs for a project i'm working on at the moment. I'm exited by this one, i think it's going to be a lot of fun :)
I'll leave it up to you to decide which is which :)

And a couple more :)

Commisions ahoy!

I've been taking some private comissions recently. Thought i'd post the fruits of my labour :)

Gah! sorry for the lack of posts :(

Things have been rather hectic recently to say the least. So today is going to be post overload to make up for it :)

First up, the next in my series of He-man fan art challenges. This guy is Scrollos, a kind of mystical 'watcher' from the old comics who keeps track of all the goings on of Eternia. I've kind of reimagined him as Adam who's come back from the future to watch and preserve the timeline he fought for. The costume is made up of elements of other Masters such as Man at arms, Teela and Orko, as well as incorporating other characters such as he-man, Skeletor, Triklops and others.

In the comic his face was never shown and i've interpreted this with a kind of eternal shadow. The star field represents the depth of his knowledge.

Quick piece of He-man fan art

Another of the character re-design challenges. This one from the she-ra universe, tried to make it a quick one. Think it took about 2 hours all in so not too bad :)

Private Commission

Reasonably pleased with this, think the likeness is good, but as it's basically copied from the original poster art, i can't claim any kudos on the lighting. Still, it was good painting practice and I do like the final piece :)

Daysleepers page 8

Another day another page... hurrah :) at this speed i may finish it this year.

Coloured He-man page.

Still not quite finished. Can't work out where the Talon fighter goes. But the colours for this part are pretty much done so here it is for now.

Daysleepers page

See Paul? I am still doing it :)
This is the latest page from a comic that i've been working on with a couple of friends for about... er... too long. I took an extended hiatus to work on some other stuff but I need sequential practice so I'm back on it. The multiple zombie frame at the end I found quite satisfying. Good for practicing perspective. I had my wifes HEAT magazine next to me at the time so there are very subtle cameos from Jordan, Peter Andre and Kerry Catona among others :)

Bride of Frankenstein

I'm getting ready to take some commisions... i'm very poor and I haven't really done this for a while so I thought I'd better practice. So this is a full illustration on Bristol using a Pentel brush pen, coloured with felt tips and colouring pencils.
Going for a pin-up feel.

White Crane

Quick one. I love Iron fist. I started a sketch yesterday with the intention of drawing Danny, then about half way through (and on the third attempt... i was having a sucky-drawing day) I decided to create an Iron fist variant based on the White Crane uniform (the style I practice).
I quite like it :) the inking went horribly wrong so I stripped most of it out and just created forms with shadows, which i think works fine.

So yeah, think i'm going to do a few more of these to practice some action poses.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

And lady... yeah.

A comission of sorts for a member of the comic geek speak forums. I'm trying to be less fiddly with my
colouring, only adding detail where it's really needed. Quite pleased with it actually. Particularly Hyde.

Green Yellow GORilla

Another He-man one :) This time a redesign of an unreleased He-man mount, A golden gorilla called Gygor. I couldn't imagine Anyone riding on the back of a golden gorilla (maybe a tarzan type character... that might be something to think about) so I made it as a stridor inspired mech suit.
Took a bit too long... but it's done now.

New-new adventures of He-man.

These were just warm up sketches that I did over the last couple of days. Colours are thrown on.
I was trying to imagine what the new adventures of he-man might look if it was commissioned now.

He-Man! du-du-du-du-duh!

I'm having fun over on the forums :) I've just joined in on a fan art project in which we are redrawing one of the old mini comics that used to come with the toys.
These are the unfinished pencils for page 9. I'll post the original page for reference when i've finished.

Dream Mistress

My first fan art sketch for the forum. The challenge was to redesign a character from the old comics. Really pleased with this one.

Happy New Year!

My first drawings of the new year. My first drawings in a month at least actually so i'm a little rusty but they came out okay.
2 birthday sketches for members of the CGS comic forums.
