Space Marine Illustration

This is a drawing of a Space Marine. Done in a old-school 2000ad style with hatching and plenty of black. I love the bloke's face, I'm really pleased with his expression and an the stark style of his armour. I didn't want him to look tool robotic or mecha so I added the leather belts across his chest.

I've never played any Warhammer games, but I was really into the lead figures when I played Dungeons and Dragons in my youth. I was a bit of a star when it came to painting them. I've still got my best ones in the wardrobe.

The drawing and inking only took an hour or so. I did it A5 size. The colour and shading was added in GiMP.

Geek Syndicate Interview

Gordon and I recently did an interview for the Geek Syndicate website. It was mainly about Arsecancer but also other projects and Paperjam Comics Collective. Gordon sounds like the brings of the outfit. I sound as mad as a fish, which is exactly what I am.

Read the interview here.

The Sausage Restaurant Cartoon

A little cartoon of a puzzled chap (me) in the local sausage restaurant surrounded by sauce, ketchup, mustard, pepper,salt, vinegar, gravy, oil and strange things without names.

I did this on the plane when on holiday, I always intended to add colour, shading or hatching, but have never quite got round to it. When I get some spare time I'll give it a go.

It's posted on Deviantart so click on the image if you want to see it full size.
