Now, where was I?

Right, to bring you up to speed: completed some illustrations for Judge Dredd Megazine – not sure when they’ll see print but I might bung some of the artwork on eBay – we’ll see. Looks like I’m doing this three parter Megazine strip, bad news is that it won’t see print until middle of next year – this is how far in advance they work. Pinking page 5 (Pinking – when you pencil as you ink – I made that word up, can’t you tell?) of Broken Claw. Sometimes some jobs are just harder than others – this one has been tough, I just haven’t been able to get a handle on how I want it too look which is leaving it fairly half-formed. But I’ve a deadline, otherwise I’d rethink the whole style. I made the mistake of starting the action off on top of a high roof with no real distinct architecture at night, the result? lots of panels where I can’t draw background cus there just isn’t any. Smart thing would have been to put them on an outcrop in the middle of a really tall building – maybe throw in a couple of gargoyles. bugger, I wish I’d thought of that sooner. Anyhue, should get page 5 finished tomorrow as well as page 6 and then greyscale them all. I’ve also bought some watercolour board to play with paints – which has been surprisingly fun and easy(ish) – I normally use my own paper but it buckles and weirds out when you paint on it, this stuff just sits there and takes all of the abuse. It’s really nice. Anyhue, signing off.
