Way Too Blue

A couple of different takes on the same colour image. I couldn't decide if I wanted this all-Metebelis blue, or to have a nice mix of hues in there. So here's both, and you can decide for yourselves!

Behind the Music - Conan Edition!

A recent commission piece. The commissioner asked for Doctor Who to meet Conan the Barbarian, so I started how thinking... how the arse do you I make that work? The first thing was to figure out a threat that makes sense for both the Doctor and Conan. And my thoughts led to Metebelis Three...

And, inevitably, to Gareth Hunt. So the "story" behind this is that prior to returning to the Planet of the Spiders, the Doctor picks up the second most dangerous man he knows. The first, of course, is Abslom Daak...

But he's dead. So - Conan it is.

This wasn't my first go at this picture. My original take was to present it almost as a sort of B-movie poster. I liked this version a lot, but the rendering on Conan bothered me, so I abandoned it. Pisser.

And that's it. Done and done. Now to get down the post office and send the bloody thing...

This man is IN YOUR HOUSE...

A panel from my forthcoming issue of Jim McCann's MIND THE GAP. Taking kind of a David Lloyd approach with this one - few holding lines, shapes defined mostly through shadows and light (and a single other tone throughout). It's weirdly very demanding, but the results look really nice. Anyway - this is COMING SOON.
