Tonight’s Game of Thrones sketch, Eddard Stark, think I prefer the pencils.
This week’s Game of Thrones sketches
One of my favourite books recently is Dungeon Fun by Colin Bell and Neil Slorance. It’s a great fantasy adventure comic with a wicked sense of humour, that’s choc-full of references to Zelda and other fantasy video games of my youth.
They’ve just announced that the second issue will be available at this years Glasgow Comic Con, and I for one can’t wait so I finally got around to doing some fan art for the book to celebrate
London Super Comic Convention starts today. Just a quick reminder that I’ll be in Artist Alley, table A20 so if you’re at the show please feel free to stop by and say hi.
I’ll be sketching all weekend, as well as having stacks of original art, including pages I inked for the Splinter Cell: Blacklist graphic novel penciled by the mighty Marc Laming (Kings Watch, Exile of the Planet of the Apes)
I’ll be at DemonCon 7 at the Royal Star Arcade in Maidstone on the 16th of this month. It’s a great, family focused, convention run twice a year, by the local comic shop, The Grinning Demon.
One of my favourite events at the show is the raffle, where the many exhibitors donate all manner of awesome artwork and merchandise, which can be won for the mere pittance, the cost of a raffle ticket. I’ll be donating this Aragorn sketch to the raffle this time round.
You can book tickets at the link above, or purchase them on the door at the day, so if you’re in the neighbourhood stop by and say hi.
The Silver Surfer painting was just about flat enough to scan. It’s probably the first time I’ve scanned a watercolour sketch and the colours have been pretty close to the original. I lost a little of the darker patches of space so burned them back in with a bit of the Burn tool in Photoshop
Ending up fiddling around with this much longer than I intended and ended up burning my lunch :(. I think the lighting works, but I’ve made a far too “pretty” John Constantine, too much James Dean and not enough Sting?
I dropped a multiply layer copy over the original sketch to boost the contrast, to see how it might hold up inked with some washes. Might redo it like that later
Really looking forward to the new Moon Knight series by Declan Shalvey and Warren Ellis. Reworked an older Moon Knight sketch from earlier this month into the new outfit that will feature in the series, designed by Declan.
Kitty Pryde and Lockheed sketch. I cleaned up the washes/inks a fair bit in Photoshop. I still think I prefer the original pencil sketch though
This is from a few weeks back, was going through a stack of old work this morning and realised I hadn’t scanned it yet.
Finally got round to scanning these Eowyn and Boromir sketches from last week
"He had deep darkling eyes, hard to fathom."
Playing around with the Procreate app on the iPad. The video playback feature is very cool but shows off all my process flaws
