This was a commission piece I did for Michael Rooth. He's a cool guy - and incredibly talented too. Check out his WEBSITE.
Drawn and coloured with a Wacom tablet and Photoshop. Here's the mono version.
Alan Moore is GREAT fun to draw.

My name is Abslom Daak...
(Click for maximum Dalek damage!)
For those of you who don't know, Abslom Daak is what happens when you take Conan the Barbarian, give him Han Solo's blaster and moral outlook, and shove him into Doctor Who. I was mildly obsessed with him for a while in the late 80s, after DWM reintroduced him for their blockbusting Nemesis of the Daleks strip (and gave away a promotional "square" single featuring the big man's theme, by the, uh, Slaves of Kane). There's a school of thought that Daak doesn't belong in Who, that his modus operandi is too brutal, too *macho* for the Doctor's world. But I think that's balls. It's a big universe that the TARDIS is travelling through, and if there isn't room in it for a sweaty, pony-tailed, chainsaw-wielding maniac, then, well... that would be a shame. My run on the strip (which I wrapped the other night - please send condolences to the usual address) definitely takes place in the strange, mono world of Daak, Frobisher, Shayde et al.
Plus, he was created by Steve Moore and Steve Dillon, which gives him an impeccable pedigree as far as I'm concerned.
Mind you - he doesn't just kill Daleks...

The Ring - Now in Colour!
Followers of the blog may remember this pic from a way back. Debs (my better half) put some wicked colours down on it, so I thought I'd share:

TWART week 3 - TORPEDO
A terrible scoundrel, as immortalised by comics greats Alex Toth and Jordi Bernet. GREAT fun to draw.
There's another version - with colours by Debs - on Comic Twart!
Edited to add - I also did a halftone version that I think looks pretty nifty (click for the full effect):
