    Mmmm. Very convincing stuff here. It's good to see you have a range of talent, from almost photorealistic to as cartoony as a saturday morning anime. Keep on postin. Looks great.

    Thanks.
    A big part of what I do is graphic design, so where I can I like to work it into
    whatever I'm doing.
    You're right, I should do more non-reffed pencil studies, it's something I need to make time for

    Glad you like the new post
    It's funny you should ask about comics.
    In a past life I was a comic illustrator.
    I worked mostly for 2000AD, the British comic staring Judge Dredd.

    I've been in two minds about posting this stuff as it was done sometime ago,
    but as you asked I though some of you maybe interested in seeing some of it.

    It's all hand drawn and painted.
    With a mix of gouache and acrylic paints.

    I'm working on a new image in the style of the left hand image.
    Hope to have it finished and posted soon

    bradley I know what you mean about the lens flare
    The picture was a commission and the flare was added as a request of the
    client, after the painting was finished.

    It was fun working for 2000AD.
    The main character I illustrated was Judge Anderson.

    That Mean Machine image was the only one I ever did of him, shame really
    he is a well cool character

    I love seeing older work. I've always kind of lacked in creativity, but I do get tons of inspiration from books like this. Thanks man, and will keep an eye out for new works!

    Some great work. You really tend toward that art nouveau hair. I know it's your business but I'd like to see something not so totally given over to design.

    I really like how you simiply the planes of the face, the way you simply your drawings in the intial stages of drawing is really nice. clean lines, wonderful values, keep up the good work!! I feel a lot of these pieces should be in the finally finshed section.

    thanks for showing your process man,

    Thanks for dropping by man and I'd love to see you do Mean Machine

    MrBob
    Glad you like the "old stuff", it does seem like another life time and thanks for the continued surrport.

    Cheers for dropping by and for the kind comments.
    kabuki has always been a favourite character so it was fun to do that painting. Maybe I'd have another crack at her one of these days.

    Thanks man.
    You have a fair point about my stuff being very "designed"
    I'll have to make sometime to do some more traditional work.

    Ah, so you DID do comics! Great! Well, as far as your posts go, I'm loving the close up of the females face the most, also in your painted style. Is the bright orange on teh eyes intentional? I notice it isn't as blended as everything else. That is a great image though, I really would like to learn how to do that, I am inexpirienced with digital coloring, and am going to be learning in Novmeber, through help of a friend, I have to meet up with.

    Do you know of any helpful tips/tutorials, or have one of your own?

    what do you do? look out for foto's, redraw them and then paste your lineart on top of a lens blurred copy of that foto? some stuff just looks to realistic to be hand painted or drawn totally from imagination

    Thanks dude.
    The bright orange on the eyes was intentional.
    I guess it would have worked if the orange was more blended, but that's just the way I wanted it
    I'm sorry to say I don't have any tutorials.
    I'm really just starting to try to find my feet with the painted style.
    Up until recently I've always done things in a very graphic style.
    But it's become clear at the studio I work for that it would be good for me to
    develop a more "painty" style.
    I guess we will just have to see how it goes

    EVIL
    I guess no one can please everyone, and the tone of your mail suggests you
    don't like what you see.
    That's fair enough, there's plenty of styles on this site for everyone to find
    something that's to their taste.

    I'm taking it that you're referring to the "painty" images in your comments.
    Yeah I have used photo ref for these images.
    A head from one photo, part of a body from another.
    So it's true that the images are not totally from imagination, which I guess from your point of view makes them less valid.

    As for the process of colouring these images.
    I block the areas of colour out using Illustrator
    then import them into Photoshop.
    Then I use a combinations of coloured layers and the original pencil drawing.
    All of these layers having different effects added to them.

    When I'm happy with the results I flatten the image and work in some details
    using different brushes and pencils.

    That's it, so I'm sorry if you see this as less worthy,
    but thanks for dropping by

    No updates today, I guess I should spend sometime learning to be a proper artist

    Wow, the winged beauty is well done. Nothing really intelligent to say today, just liking what I see and letting you know. Like how you handled that rude comment, shows a lot of maturity on your part. Now get back to work, you no talent wannabe, hack, poser, how dare you post that garbage here?!.................

    hehe first i wanted to say i like your pure linework in your "imaginations" drawings they got a nice unique-style! usually i hate to see artists copying things, but u did it awesome with a nice touch of yours, wich makes it art to me and i know u can draw without ref too , so keep posting

    ps. i luv how u draw hairs i´ve also tried to do it but most time have no patience for it. reminds me of mucha but in the new generation style. just awesome!

    Very cool stuffs man, you're really confident with cel shading and rendering.

    I guess one suggestion I'd make in general is to add some more visible variation in line weights to emphasis 3D, as some of your characters appear flat when foreshortening is involved. I think what you did in this one is perfect:
    Katrin....45.

    The rendering you do is good so I don't think it's a big problem or anything, but I still reckon your works can benefit from that.

    Just my two cents, hope it's relevant.

    ok, you use photo ref, you copy photos, and whatever.BUT it looks damn good and it works...i like the old school style in the judge dredd pics.Lets just say the skills you use for you drawings and painting are completely different from the skills me and other people use, but that ain't a crime, and i don't think it should be considered "inferior"...obviously, some life drawing and imagination drawing can only help you improve, but guess in this field (art) anything you do can only help you improve, so just just keep the thread up!

    (hope you can understand what i'm writing )

    Very cool, I like the orange, I just wondered. I have to admit that I really like your work and the style you've picked up, as time progresses your painterly style will only improve, and then I'll be very happy to see your progress.

    I love your artwork, it's very inspirational.

    Best of luck to you!
