I had an idea today.
More to follow - stand by!

The brief for this commission (c/o Neil Davidson - thanks Neil) was pretty straightforward - Sherlock Holmes meets the Tenth Doctor. I wanted to go a little further than that, and came up with a little snippet of an unseen Holmes adventure. Let's call it, I dunno, The Automatic Man.
It was nice drawing David Tennant again!

I kind of love drawing Galactus - hope I've done the big fella justice.
This was a recent commission piece. Which reminds me - I am available for commissions! Let me know what you fancy either in the comments box below or at my email address to the right. My rates are here: CLICK

This is this week's Sandman TWART, without colours and before I fixed the values in photoshop.
I really enjoy drawing Spider-Man, but I *love* drawing Sandman. He's big and he's blunt and he looks like he's falling apart. And the stripes are a deceptively simple design element which help define his physique and make him pop. After years of being ambivalent about Steve Ditko, I'm coming round to the idea that he is probably a genius.
And this is the drawing I did to warm up for the Flint Marko piece. I botched the gun, unfortunately, but I enjoyed drawing this austere, 1930s version of Morpheus, a contrast to the be-robed, Robert Smith-esque version of the nineties.

I've been away from ComicTWART for a while but I couldn't resist coming back for this week's subject - FRANKENSTEIN. Or, more specifically, Frankenstein's Monster (although I've always maintained that, as he's effectively the son of Victor Frankenstein, he has as legitimate a right to the name as his creator. But I digress). This was a lot of fun - I liked sticking this shambling wreck of a man inside some fancy Georgian finery. Mr D'Arcy eat yer heart out.
