Exhibition Pieces

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.

2000AD Art Stars Competition Entries

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.

On to the next job!

March of Robots part2

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!

Sketchtember 2018 Robots and Cyborgs!

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.

Dredd Update

Finally got around to finishing this..or at least getting it to a point i’m happy to leave it at. Since the last post i’ve added a background just to give it some meaning rather than old stoney faces floating head in space. Learned a lot from this, and i’m quite happy with dredd’s face. I think i’ll plan layout a bit more next time.

On a separate note; i’ve entered it into a 2000ad artstars competition. We’ll see how we go anyway!

Dredd

Now for something a bit more current. This is a WIP for one of a few postcard size prints. My favourite fictional facist.

I’m working digitally in clip studio paint. Aiming for a quasi-realistic look. Still plenty to go here; with a view to adding atmosphere, more texture and elements from the characters world.

“Maintenance”

Oldy but a goody. I really enjoyed working on this one. …gore, robots and comedy…what’s not to love? Completed for Gray haven comics in b+w (photoshop).

Written by Shane Ormond. It’s a steam punk tale, about a handyman who’s prosthetic arm turns on him.
