cool stuff nick, the doodles really are not getting old mate: the improvement may seem subtle but the sophistication you are acheiving in your faces and char designs is really something in the last few sheets.
good to see you playing areound with a wider variety of stuff. love the beatle thingy!
Cakeypigdog: Thanks buddy! I feel a bit stale in myself doing those characters. Need to leave them for a while.
Jens: Thanks man! Really like your book too. You've come on in leaps and bounds since I saw your stuff at the workshop (You remember chatting and doodling with me a bit?). Paris? Gawd, I wish. I live in Nottingham which is regularly voted the worst/most dangerous place to live in the UK...
lukavi: Wow! Thanks a ton for checking out my little book. I'm a hooge fun of your stuff. Yeah, I definitely want to do more colour stuff - just need to build up my confidence a bit.
Blahm: Thanks! I find drawing straight on the computer a bit tough as well, but the charcoal pencil brush in Painter 9 feels very analog and satisfying to me. Check it out.
Here's a quick update. A couple of thumbnails for the CHOW. Didn't really follow the brief very well. Just drew some robots. Which is nice:
Have a good weekend all!

maxetormer: Yeah, a long way to go until I can colour competently...Let's definitely OC soon.
newman: Page ten, eh? What can I say? I've been a slack bastard with feeble excuses. And when are we going to see an update from Newman? Hmm?
Ganbat_Bad: Means a lot, thanks. Your thread is tremendously good.
Spade: Thanks for stopping by!
Right. Not much worth posting. I've been pretty lame the past couple of weeks. Feel like I'm in a bit of a rut, plus had stuff to do that kept me from drawing. No excuses though, I've been really weak lately. I've been looking at a bunch of great SBs today (notably Hurricane's and Tuchten's) and thinking ' they're so prolific and busting their asses and improving all the time - you don't work hard enough, you don't deserve to get better, you lazy sack!' So yeah, if I want to improve, I really need to be more focused and start cranking more stuff out. Think I need to do more (any?) finished pieces. Doodles are all well and good for generating ideas, but I won't really test my mettle until I spend a good few hours on something working it to a finished state. Anyway, rant over. Here's a few scraps.
I'll update again when I have something a bit more worthy.
