Christmas Has Past

I have been really bad at posting on here lately but I will endeavour to make a better effort. I will start by promising that I will post something tomorrow and will post something else before the week is through.

Let's hope I can keep that promise.

Cowboy Vs Alien

Done for another Design-A-Character challenge. Didn't really have an idea this time but I love drawing the creepy alien types so threw this together. I'm trying to loosen up my inking I think this got closer but still a long way to go.

Hope you enjoy.

I love it when a plan comes together...

I have been overflowing with ideas this summer but have neglected to really explore them. I have finally gotten down to exploring my ideas both narratively and visually. Here is my first rendition of the Monsters from my as yet untitled Monster comic. I'm really happy with them after days of discarded exploratory sketches my final designs all came together really quickly. 

Hope you like them.

I hope to be more active on this blog from now on as I want to keep creating content for my various ideas.

Little Invincible

Hey guys been a bit since the last post. I've been working on a drawing a comic from a scriptbook I bought a while ago and it's Invincible so here's a little practice sketch I did in pencil, ink and watercolour with some digital colouring.

I like the outcome so I'm gonna try a few more.

By Crom's Beard

Hey People,
I've been trying to get better at characters of all shapes and sizes lately so I thought I'd take a stab at someone with a bit more muscle. So here is my sketch of Conan that I did the other day going to start inking it today and see how it goes. Hope you like him.

Sketchy Ink Video

Here's a video I did of me inking my character turnaround using time lapse photos.

Character Sketching Video

I just did this test video of me sketching out a character that I am doing for a turnaround challenge on Deviant Art. I need to improve the angle but as far as a test goes I like the result hope you do too.

El Laberinto Del Fauno Pencils

Hey guys,
Here's the pencils for the Pan's Labyrinth poster redesign I am doing for my collective blog. Hope you guys like it. It's a bit more on the side of realism than I try to do usually but it's coming together really well I think.

El Laberinto Del Fauno Redesign

This week on my collectives blog we are redesigning our favourite films poster. I opted for Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pan's Labyrinth'. This is my thumbnail for it. I'm gonna post process stuff for the Equine Cranium Collective stuff here but you'll have to go to the blog (link in the sidebar) for the final piece when it's posted.

Getting to know the inhabitants...

Today has been a rather fruitful day in regards to creating new inhabitants to the world I have created but not so much in regards to getting any closer to the end product. Today I explored both the animal and more civilised creatures that inhabit the world of Hive. The kandu, grallop and ferogast will all make appearances eventually but what I have to show you today is the Underdwellers. They will be included on an info card in the Tales From The Hive folder bundle that I am creating for this project. The further I get into this world the more comfortable I feel. I feel like everything is there and I see it in a blurry haze I just need to put what I can down on paper to get a clear picture and I hope anyone who happens on this blog will join me in exploring it.

So here is a picture of an Underdweller

Fleshing out the Universe

Today's been a productive one I've really got a good jump on all the screen print elements of my mini comics package. I finished the packaging design and designed my screen print. All the little bits I'm doing are really helping shape this universe I've created. Tomorrow I'm going to design an info card about another race from the world of HIVE which should be fun I'm enjoying building this world up bit by bit and want to continue that way. Be that through random images or mini-comics.

Here's the flat vector of my screen print not sure on the colours yet but it's going to be 2 colours on a coloured paper.

Packaging Challenge... Or Challenging Package

Recently I've been working on an interesting way to package my most recent project. I've been designing some graphics for it based on the location where all the content inside will be set. The colours aren't final and I'm not sure where it will be placed on the product but I'm happy with the design.

New Blog and New Ambition

First Post is always the hardest so it's gonna be a short one just a little bit about what I like to do.

I am a university student at Plymouth Uni studying illustration nearing the end of my second year. I pretty much exclusively draw comics for my course and am enjoying the challenge of how to improve on what I am learning project after project.

Here's some of what I did last Project.
