The Specter!

Hey guys it’s been awhile since I last posted something up on the blog, needless to say I have been busy working on a few projects. Today I can finally unveil a piece of work that I collaboratively made with another artist, Steve May. The piece was an interesting challenge to integrate two separate styles that are to be displayed on the same plain as each other. The piece will be displayed at the Armadacon in Plymouth and will be up for auction with the proceeds going towards a charity.
I am also currently working on a 4 page narrative with a story that ties in with my family history specifically in WWII and doing a comic anthology with a local group based in the South West region too, so exciting little things happening that may turn into something later on.

Have you seen the muffin man?

Thought I shake up the daily sketch routine this time, with a sequential piece. I got pretty cheesed off (yes I am allowed to say that) with some people yesterday so I decided to vent said frustration in a creative manner. Again I have called upon the great 'Space Hamster' to aide this cause and the age old nursery rhyme of 'The Muffin Man'. Now I have to apologize for misspelling Drury in this strip but I hope it is still clear enough that it ties in with the 'Muffin Man'.

I had a lot of fun putting this little piece together and has made me think that I ought to do more sequential imagery than just 'pin-up' illustrations so that I may continue to get better at telling narratives sequential which is essentially what I want to do rather than just do one off drawings.

Feeling blue.

Today I went with something that I find I waste a lot of time on, Mass Effect. I know EA screwed us fans over with the finale but it is still one of the most interesting and compelling sci-fi adventures in the gaming world. So I did a sketch of one of the most overlooked aliens in Citadel space (at least that is what they think) the Volus. I love the mystery underneath their enviro-suits, their ball like shape that makes you feel he would start rolling down a hill if you nudged him and they are greedy little pigs too.

Of course, I ended up turning to standard pose. Just draw a guy standing in empty space with little narrative. If this were a toy I would be a little disappointed that it didn't come with anything extra. I fail at adding extra little details to sketches, so something to think about for next time then.
