Smell my finger

Sorry to double on Wonderous Will Wednesday but I never know when to pop in with a post.
Here is a work in progress all about smelling goo from animal's bums.

I've started a new design company, check it out here for web & app design, custom comics and more

I don't think I've ever actually drawn this guy before.


An Example of Rubbish Drawing

First off, apologies yet again to Dec for missing the end of Monday and posting this on Tuesday morning. I promise this is the last time, next time I forget my day I'll just take it on the chin and not post at all.

This is an example of something I drew being... not all that great. I drew the original pic a few months back when Dec was up working here, and at the time I'm pretty sure he told me the head looked a tad wonky. 'Nonsense!' I cried. Who are you to tell ME what's well-drawn and what isn't, Marvel-boy?

So a few days later I sent the finished pic on to Thompson just for a second opinion. Body fine, head WONKY. Bah.
By this point I was beginning to feel like perhaps they were onto something. I weirdly couldn't see much wrong with the original head though, I had just sketched it straight out like the rest and inked it up without hesitation; seemed fine to me. So I decided I'd do an alternate version using photo-ref of my own bonce to see if I really had strayed that far from actual human anatomy. Well... yeah. It was wonky.

So the plus side was that I had a better version as a result. The downside is it bore a striking resemblance to myself. Also it looked a tad boring and stiff compared to the looser, original drawing, the eyes in particular. Lifeless eyes, cold eyes. Like a doll's eyes.  So I grabbed the eye-region from my original looser drawing and pasted it straight onto the new more clinical version, and that seemed to do the trick. Suddenly, he had personality again.

I just wish I nailed it right out of my head every time, but then I guess we all do. That's not to say that most times I don't draw perfectly well-crafted heads without ref; I do. I just wanted to show this example of me badly getting it wrong, so that maybe some fans of the blog and wannabe artists can see that there are almost as many failures as successes; it's not all gravy. Sometimes it's just brown and water.

1000 Posts

Happy Paddys weekend all. Heres a Jam piece feature Eclectic Micks new and old celebration our 1000th art post. I'll let you guys try and figure out which Mick drew which charater.
We even have one more to add to it soon so all the Micks will have featured.

Its been a blast so far. Here is to the next 1000 posts


Here's a detail of my part of the imminent 1000th Micks post. This guy is my favourite Bat-Family character, save maybe for Bats himself. This could be a significant clue as to what the theme of the big Jam-Piece is.... Done with Copic markers and pens.

T-BOLTS process/peek

Here's a T-Bolts process post; from #172, out next month. I guess it's also a sneak peek too. This is a panel of Hyde in all stages of my process from layout, to pencils, to inks and finally colours by Jordie.

Hope ye like.


Delicious and Nutricious

 Oop. Forgot to post yesterday what with all the pent up creative juice I returned from Offset (whadda show!) with. Here's a panel from later on in issue 1 of Half Past Danger.

Sorry for horning in on your day Dec. I did consider simply not posting, but where's the sticktoitiveness in that? Besides, then you'd have more posts than me. Not on my watch, sir!

Page Boy

Here's a page from me sketchbook. Feeling a bit Turtle-y. And a bit moppy.

The local comic shop The Big Bang had a competition recently where the prize was a sketch of a character of the winner's choosing. The winner chose Hawkeye, obviously.
