Spooky's Big Tree

Another quickly inked drawing using the same character from the previous picture cos he's easy to draw and I like the look of him. Maybe he's carrying whatever he caught from the swamp in that bag of his. Actually the demonic fairy type thing in this wasn't as hard as I thought, so I guess I actually am learning stuff. Not sure the warped perspective of the trees works too well but I like the colours.

Anyway, I'm really gonna try and hold onto my new mission statement of doing at least one picture every two days if not every day so I can learn new styles and techniques and generally get better at art.

Spooky Fisherman

Yeah, it's a bit late for Halloween but this image popped into my head last night and I had to draw it today or else suffer the wrath of a thousand harpies for eternity.

It's done on paper to start with again and I'm especially proud of the bubblin' swamp, which didn't look right until I went over the ink lines with a dark green colour.

Why there's a partially invisible cyclops fishing in an ominous swamp in the middle of the night is anyone's guess.

I have a freaky mind apparently!

Unholy trio

This is a bit of a first for me - my first inked sketch drawn on paper. I was just doodling away and came up with some half decent pics of the Preacher so I decided to draw the whole gang and attempt inking it.

I don't think it turned out half bad in the end. I thought I'd post the black and white ink from the scan. The colouring was all on computer - no way am I even attempted hand colouring!

I'm pretty pleased with it all to tell you the truth. And even though I did peek at a few proper pictures of the characters on the interweb for reference, I tried to do it in a simplistic style, which still looks pretty close to the characters in the end (apart from Tulip, who I might have drawn a little bit wrong and where is that hand on Preacher's shoulder coming from?)

Anyway, no more Preacher pics from me. Hopefully, I'll do some of my own stuff again soon instead of ripping off established characters like the Preacher and pals, though that involves a lot more work and a little ole' thing called creativity. I'll also attempt to post (kind of) regularly again!

A Starr is born

I've just finished reading all of the Preacher comics and I have to admit that Starr is one of the funniest characters I've read in a long time. So here he is.

Apologies if I got the details wrong but I tried to draw (most of) it from memory for once as well as putting in an attempt at making it all anatomically correct. Ok, not entirely perfect, especially the arms, but getting there... I hope.

oh dear...

I have been a bit slack in posting stuff. I did a couple of pictures ages ago (honest!) but I didn't like them. and then got distracted finishing a short story. Anyway, here's one of them that's been touched up a little so it doesn't quite look so awful.

I've decided to learn more of the basics of figure drawing in the meantime so fingers crossed that some good stuff may work its way here soon...
