Batman by Me

I've finally drawn a Batman and here it is. I've never been a fan of superhero comics, but since the days of Arkham Asylum I've liked the dark and ambiguous Batman comics. I've always thought of him as an evil brooding unhinged loon with a host of problems. So I drew him exactly that way, framed against a stormy Gotham City skyline staring down his victims. I may try to have a go at some of the villains sometime soon.

It was drawn totally in GiMP with a wacom tablet no paper was involved whatsoever. It took me a couple of hours on sunday night.

Dead Roots Comic

I've just finished drawing a six page zombie comic. This was for a new webcomic called Dead Roots here's the website. The script, Eleventh Plague, written by Darren Ellis, was good and after a while I got the hang of drawing is slightly differently to my normal style. The story is now being coloured by a lady whose name has slipped my mind.

Dead Roots is edited by Mike Garley and will soon be available on all types of electronic things. I'm not sure exactly how you get hold of a copy, you probably need an app or someother type of wizardry. At the moment it is planned as a 4 issue publication. Not sure what issue my strip will appear in. The other contributors' work that I've seen look amazing and there's some top-drawer folk involved.

I might post a few panels in a while but at the minute I'm just having a rest.
