Heroman Comic Strip Painting In Progress

This was an experiment of sorts. I was trying to bash out a fully painted comic strip as quickly as I could AND be happy with it at the end. Quickly you say?! ….not so much. I let it drag out a little longer than I should have, but it proved to be educational, and workable at least. I can see a few issues already, but even if it was perfect I wouldn’t like it! Too late now!

I’m posting these phone camera images (apologies) of the strip this week, but I will follow this up with the finished painting, worts and all, as soon as I Photoshop it to oblivion, and insert speech bubbles so you get the full sense of the strip.

Before I forget, this isn’t my intellectual property, but one of a few sample scripts

I found on the internet. I don’t know who wrote it, but it served my purposes (a challenge not for profit), so cheers unknown writer, I hope I’m doing it justice!

I’ll post the finished one soon.

Life Drawing

This week it’s a selection of recent life drawings. I’m currently working on something else and the final life drawing image should lead into it nicely.

I’m using a HB pencil here again. I might try to work in some colour next time or perhaps another medium at least.

“Tactical Withdrawal”



Originally I had thought of a pretty questionable title for this but “Tactical Withdrawal” seemed less rude and more succinct.

Anyway the thinking behind this post is an experimentation with colour and indulging the sci-fi nerd in me. Here, I dabbled with a few primary and secondary colours, as well as complementary colours. I tried to hint at some symbolism with the choice of colours (I’ll let you work that out for yourself). Worked out ok I think.

I’m kind of obsessed with painting right now. Time consuming stuff. Feel free to leave a comment!
