Decided to push what I did yesterday a bit further, with interesting results. There are a couple of failures, and they were due to using markers over pencils which is hard to control that led to them being ruined and unfinished. The rest however were done in a similar fashion as before though some are done a little differently. One example is that I used the markers as a base colour only, and then gone over it in polychromos pencils to add tone.
The third image on the top row shows a bit more what I am striving to achieve. Essentially I plan on doing a complete greyscale noir image of Batman without having to ink my line work. It has been refreshing and overly different to how I normally work, and I can see this being used again for future works so I will continue to push it further.
I fell in love with Jebedaï’s style and vision. Discover his unique style in details here.
So me and my friends decided we’ll try play D&D which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time now, and to build up a bit more excitement I did a bit of character art to make the adventure more personal.
Karrathus The Morning Sword a Dragonborn Paladin with his hamster called Porkins.
Tim’s character Thorian, and Elven Ranger. Although he is not in the drawing he does have a nameless pet crow.
Well I have been gone awhile, but here is a juicy glimpse of what I have been preoccupied with.
I am currently working away on issue one of my comic ‘A Shadow of Steel!’ featuring the Silver Phantom. The comic is due to be released on May 4th free comic book day and DevCon in Plymouth. I know that I said I would be more proactive on the blog this year, and I do intend be but right now between this and other projects and life its all time consuming. Rest assured though I will keep you updated with this comics progress. Until next time.
Diana’s December Challenge
The Snow Queen from Anderson’s Fairy Tales.
From reading the story, what really stuck with me was the image of the little girl riding the reindeer in her search for her young friend. Reindeer are rather hard to draw, I discovered.
Done with inks and acrylics on watercolour paper. I hope you enjoy it and that it leads some of you to go and read the lovely story.
