Yet more pencils..... progress.

I've just finished pencilling page twelve of a hefty-and-rather-ominous-sounding twenty one, of my BICS comic / project.

Behold ye a couple of snippets for folk to take a peep at.

Right then. Back to it.....

Pac Man Paintings

...Like it says above, Pac Man Paintings.

This is a set of acrylic on canvas paintings that I've recently finished as a pressie for my brother and his computer room. Now I've handed them over to him, I figure that it's safe to stick a few piccies here.

I'm really pleased with them now they're finished. The perfectionist / computer nerd in me had quite a job making sure that the colours were as close as I could get.

Hope you like them folks. I may get another set together in time for BICS and try and sell them on the Midlands Comics Collective stand?

They call me the Creeper...

Ta-da. Finished Creeper sketch. Inking done with a Pentel brush pen, and quick colours in Photoshop.

I'm determined to spend some time practising my inking inbetween the frustrating hours spent pencilling this pesky comic.

By the way, if anyone out there hasn't yet read it, I strongly urge you all to check out 'The World of Steve Ditko'. A great collection by everyone's favourite Objectivist comic book artist.

That's all for now folks.

Messy, messy pencils

I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that I'm a bit of a messy penciller. This doesn't make me a bad person though.

Yep, this week has been yet more pencils for my comic (the very same comic which I could do with coming up with a title for).
Despite being a messy penciller, I'm nothing if not methodical. I know folk who jump about a script, tackling pages in any old order. My preferred method of working is to pencil an entire story start to finish before even thinking about the inking. I'm afraid that readers of this blog may have to put up with a couple of weeks of pencils therefore before they get to see any inky stuff.

As well as the comic, I've been doing some painting as well as dipping into my sketchbook. I'll post some piccies of the painting when it's safe to do so, but for now I'll post a quick sketch of the Creeper. I plan to ignore the slightly dodgy anatomy and use this for some much needed inking practice...

Until next time chums.....
