These images were produced for a joint exhibition on the human form. I got caught a bit short here and had to finish these at short notice. You’ll notice I couldn’t help myself, and crow-barred some scifi elements in. Completed digitally.
Here are my entries for the 2000ad spring art stars competition. The theme was strontium dogs (a classic line up of characters from the 2000ad stable. The first is johnny alpha and the second, durham red.
I really enjoyed doing these. I spent quite a bit of time on one ; the second I hammered together at the last minute. In hindsight, I wish i had done more with the dust clouds in the first, and the water vapour in the second. Also, i wish I had tackled one of them in a bit more of an impressionistic way (less exacting deatil and more atmospheric) . It might have been an interesting experiment. They were completed digitally.
Long awaited part 2 of the “march of robots” challenge. Really loved doing this. It gave me the chance to flex my brain, by playing with the official word list of the challenge. I also got the chance to break out some old art materials I have lying around as well as playing around with the digital process. Well worthwhile!
Change of tack here. A quick pencil portrait I completed recently. Love a bit of portraiture, but sometimes….just sometimes, when you’re not happy with the likeness, it can drive you bananas. Dodged that here luckily!
