Frequency - August Cover

I am officially Frequency's cover boy, this is the cover for the August issue of "That's Entertainment". And about 3 seconds ago, I just realised that I forgot to put my website on the image. Balls.

Oh well, you all know I did it....

Highly Commended

You could be experiencing deja vu when you look at this pic. Some of you will remember seeing this image from one of the very first posts on this blog, but some of you will have just seen it in this months edition of Computer Arts Projects, where it was "highly commended", which I thought was worth a re-post. Big thanks once again to the lovely Sarah Hibbert, who collaborated with me on this piece.

Just got the okay to publish this online, from my clients: The Vandal Horde. It's come on a bit from that first inked version hasn't it?

More tomorrow.

It's not me, honest!

In between doing commissions, I normally find it quite healthy to make images for the hell of it. It enables you to experiment a little, without worrying if your clients will accept any drastic style change, and bring what you've learned to your later drawings. Sometimes you learn some new tricks, and other times you learn to avoid certain styles!

Anyway, this is a speedpainting I did after working on a commission. It's not based on me, it was from a reference pic of a sulking child. (Although, I did hear pretty much every one of those remarks at some point as a kid...)

Hope you like it!

As promised...

I mentioned that one of the reasons to check this blog as well as the website is for a "behind the scenes" look at things that you wouldn't see on the website, which is obviously the polished portfolio. This is one of the commissions I'm working on for the Vandal Horde. Here we have the inked lines, and the first pass of colours. (There was a pencil stage before that, but I forgot to save it!) Anyway, enough talking, here's an insight into how I work. More soon!
