Heroman Comic Strip

Following on from last week, heres the finished Heroman.

I’ll try and do more strips in the future.


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!
