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!
Admittedly not anywhere near september anymore but here’s the selection for the 2018 Sketchtember challenge for true believers comic festival. It features favouites of mine, from various franchises, DC, Marvel and 2000ad.
Flashback to last year: Here’s a collection of sketches completed for the 2017 September drawing challenge hosted by the guys at true believers comic festival. It features all things related to Marvel’s Daredevil. Great practice and a pretty enjoyable process; so much so, I partook this year too. I’ll post that shortly as well. Enjoy!
