Welcome to Kirkwall.

Here's something I've been working on since last night. It's an image I think I might use as a front page for my website, so you'll click the "Enter" speech bubble and it'll redirect you to my cargo page.
I thought I'd post it now, because I might not use it and I think it's a pretty cool drawing. Whatever. I've tried to use pretty earthy tones this time, as a lot of my more recent images have been pretty bright.

Lost Planet

I finished up my space themed image today. I almost had it last night, but I ended up getting really frustrated with it and went to bed a bit miffed. Luckily, sleeping on it turned out for the best. The rocks remind me of candyfloss.

Space stuff

Here's an image I'm working on at the moment! It seems taking breaks from drawing long comics is pretty good for drawing long comics. I'll have this coloured asap dudes.

Quiet please

Here's an unused panel from a comic I'm working on!

It's about a lonely little kid that goes to the library after school to read books and what not. He finds a creepy book in the "forbidden section" of the library and it sucks him into a new dimension! It's very early days, but I hope I can finish this one. The Space comic I was doing fizzled out, which was a massive shame. It just wasn't compelling enough. Hopefully this one will be. It'll be better than the deperssing Jeffrey Brown comic I was planning by a long shot. Failed relationships comics can be far too sappy.

I think I might colour this one up and use it as a promo image or something, so watch this space.

Il a l'air de planer

Well this went in a totally different direction than I thought it would! I was knocking out key lines here and there and this is what happened. I'm not dead into all this texture painting stuff on photoshop just because I don't think I can really do it. Not to the standard that some people can, anyway.
I still like this image though. Just look at the mini Gas Giants face! D'awww! He's having the best time. Poor Cosmonaut kid though, he'll be toast if he touches him.

Spaced out.

I was doodling today and ended up with this. It's unfinished at the moment because I just can't get the colours right. I hate space sometimes when I have to colour it, It drives me crazy. So I'm giving up for today and hopefully I'll be able to sort it out tomorrow. There are bits that need sorting but I'm totally into the goofy "gas giant," His face is so silly.

What's up with you grouchy pants?

Man I'm stupid. I was supposed to send these off by post for that Waterstones competition, but I didn't realise that until today. Total failure. Yeah, I had a month to do it in and I could make excuses about how down I've been lately, which actually has effected my work ethic a lot. I've literally spent a month sitting around being sad and appyling for awful jobs. It's been rough.
I think I'm getting happier now though, maybe. Doing this really cheered me up and I was totally psyched about sending these off for the competition, but I've screwed it up. Really mad at myself.
So, I thought I might as well post them on here for y'all to see. Enjoy

Edit* The images are for the "Beauty and the Beast" childrens book competition, in case you were wondering. You've got The Beast, Beauty herself and her Merchant Father, top to bottom yo.
