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!

Mega Mullet

Playing around with the process for digital painting here. Caught sight of a spectacular mullet in a google search and I just thought it would be fun to paint. Working in clip studio.

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.
