More movie folk sketches

I've been tied up with a lot of colouring work lately, which has fortunately paid off as I've just acquired a pro colouring gig with Accent UK. However, just to convince myself that I can still draw, I've done a few more movie character sketches. I intend to ink these up and hopefully sell them - drop me a line if you're interested.




The End of the Siege

This month sees the release of Sci-fi Art Now, a gorgeous hardback coffee table book edited by John Freeman and featuring the work of some real household names such as Dylan Teague, Dermot Power, Mark Harrison, John Ridgway, Neil Roberts & John Higgins to name but a few. Plus, somehow, I'm in there too!

You know how sometimes you have those sudden moments of clarity, when you take a step back and suddenly see the bigger picture? I remember as a wee boy clutching a Star Wars annual pretty much everywhere I went, with a great cover by John Higgins. Weird huh?

Cerebral Soup

In case you didn't catch it, Paragon #6 is out now, and features this gruesome pin up by yours truly on the back cover. I've tweaked the colours here a bit, but you get the gist. I'm currently working on the front cover of issue 7 too, which hopefully will be out before Christmas.



Cass - digital inks

Well this took bloody ages but as an exercise in digital inking I hope it was worthwhile. A bit wobbly in places but my eyeballs doth protest, so I'm stopping now. Of course I'll probably crack, turn it blue, print it off and ink it by hand eventually.


Cass (work-in-progress)

Inspired by Kev Levell's recent inky Anderson, here's a loose pencil sketch with some tighter lines inked over the top in photoshop. This is all I could get done tonight - teaching now on Thursday mornings so have to prepare my damn lesson (grrr).


Modesty Blaise

A sketch of the classic character for a new collaborative blog proposed by James Corcoran. A few of the other Fractal Friction chaps have already attempted her - and here are the pencils for my effort. I have to confess, I'm not overly familiar with the character beyond knowing who she is, so I may well have taken a few too many liberties in my interpretation, but hey, I think I've captured the sixties vibe.

Defoe sketch - coloured

Managed to grab an hour to throw some colour at this, just for fun.



A thank you sketch for Filip Roncone, who was kind enough to send me issues 1-3 of Gutsville. What a gent.
