Doctor Who in TV Action!

This was a present for a friend of mine. He's a big fan of the 1970s comic Countdown, which featured the third Doctor in stunning, fully painted action in every issue. I haven't quite managed to replicate that look (or the quality of the art therein - it really was beautiful stuff), but I've had a decent stab at it. And I really enjoyed drawing Pertwee.

More importantly, my pal *loved* it. Job done!

How the West was Doomed!

I realised the other day that I haven't drawn anything for my own amusement in a LONG time. So I did this:

That's Hellboy in a Wild West, Ghost Rider mash-up. As you might have guessed, I'm playing a lot of Red Dead Redemption at the moment. Pencils, inks, crayons, letters, colours by me. Here's a few close-ups:

You'll have seen this already, of course. But I'm really chuffed with it, so I wanted to showcase it again.

Wild West Ghost Rider. The best bit of the GR film was when Wild West Ghost Rider and Nic Cage Ghost Rider were racing to the conclusion while "Ghost Riders in the Sky" played. Obvious, yes, but it's the nearest the movie came to actually being stirring.

Aaannd... One more look at Hellboy.

Batman Jr!

My two favourite panels of the week.

I REALLY enjoyed drawing something in a Liefeld style - fun.

Pencil, ink, crayon, photoshop

You'll already have seen this if you TWART, but here's a snippet from a page I'm working on. No prizes - it's just for fun.

I've never really drawn Hellboy before - not in earnest, anyway. Not bad, eh?

Der Flugel-Mensch!

From the last two weeks, this is my favourite page that I drew.

Not much call for Kirby-style histrionics for this particular project, so I've indulged my more Caniff-y, Robbins-y, Romita-y side. I also get to draw my favourite thing - some bozo drawing a comic book page!
