You total hack!

I didn't know what to draw last night and I found this old sketch of a 12th Century Knight all cut up and stuff in a sketchbook. I couldn't be bothered to ink it, so I just scanned in the pencil and ended up with this. I'm pretty into it. Mixing up pencils and photoshop is easy on the eyes, it's quite nice having a bit of texture in the line work. Also I love Kettle Helms, they look so badass yet cute at the same time. I believe they used them from the 12th Century up until the 15th Century, so when I said he's a 12th Century Knight I should be historically correct.

Also, the new Death Cab Album is streaming on NPR. It's dope.

Shadow Boxer

It's very late, 2:30 am to be exact. I haven't been sleeping well lately, so tonight I thought I might as well be productive with it. Not sure how this came about. I read something about Muhammad Ali shadow boxing and wham! here it is. I'm pretty into it. I really need a new pallete though, this is more or less the same one as the NHS booklet. Mind you, I think it's nice and warm, so maybe it'll work for me?

I watched Unforgiven last night. I'd never seen it all the way through before and it was amazing. Clint Eastwood is one of my heroes, so I did this in my sketch book.

Doodles from the Black Lagoon.

I watched this film yesterday and drafted this thing up during. I tried to colour it, but it just wasn't happening and I gave up. Argh! It's way too static.
I need to stop looking at other peoples work, it's really bumming me out! I want to be super good at stuff. Grump.

Whoah-oh! Are you lonely?

I haven't been able to get very inspired lately, which is a bummer. You can see that in the fact that I've ripped off my own image and put a vampire in it. Gothic.
I've been listening to Calabrese again since I recently found out about their new album (a year late!) and it inspired me to draw this thing. I think I'm getting better with colours now. It took me ages to figure out the palette for this, but it was worth it baby.

I only hope I can get out of this creative funk pretty soon.

Forgotten Space

Greetings from hyperspace nerds! here's a rough-ish first 8 pages of a comic that I'm working on. It's about a guy who's stuck on an uninhabited world with no hope of rescue and his coming to terms with his untimely end... Dark. That's the plan anyway, I think it might work out.

I drafted this up in an A5 notepad so the panels are a big thick and splodgy. I'll probably re-draw all of this at roughly double size, so that when I re-size the panels they'll tighten up. I just hope it reads okay... Maybe a little bit too fast? but if I'm going to make it say 24 pages or something, it needs to be pretty quick, at least at the start to kick things off before it gets weird!

Anyway, live long and prosper nerds.
