Closing down.. for the time being.

I am closing this blog down for a while, mainly due to not having enough time to keep up with it as much as I think it needs.

If you are looking for me latest artwork, you can check out my Portfolio, Facebook Page and DeviantArt Page.

Thanks for reading, and who knows, I might be back soon!

New sequential page

This week, I worked on inking my second page from Injustice, pencilled by David Yardin, and I also coloured a Tomb Raider image by Eric Basaldua and inked by DevGear.

Since DevGear's usage policy does;t allow me to post the actual image to my blog, a link will have to suffice. I am very happy with how the final version of this turned out, so make sure you go check it out here.

Check out my sequentials from pencilled by David Yardin below!

Star Wars, Alice In Wonderland and More.

This weekend I got to spend a fair bit of time working - while I have a couple of pieces I am holding back until I finish them, I have a few pieces I finished below. The best part about this weeks work is I got to work with some pencils from two of my favorite artists - J Scott Campbell and Robert Atkins, I can't say enough how honored I am that I was allowed to work with their lines (Robert Atkins was unbelievably cool about letting color his work)

Anyways, I hope you dig this weeks offerings, and as always, don'f gorget to check out my Facebook and DevinatArt profiles!

My Work From This Week!

So, I have a couple of pieces I worked on this week. First off, an awesome Death Dealer image from Nat Jones and Richard Bonk - with Flats by Hector Rubilar. This was my first attempt working with someone else's flats, and while I don't think it particularly saved me much time with my final image, I am definitely not opposed to trying it again (in fact I have already grabbed a few flatted images from DevinatArt for me to work with.)

Next up, I inked and coloured a pic of Cyclops from the X-Men, which was pencilled by Komus. It was pointed out to me by Sean Ellery, an artist I respect greatly, that the pencils had a very David Finch feel about them - and I really do not see that as a bad thing.

Anyways, check out this weeks work, and let me know what you think.

Don't forget I also maintain a Facebook page and DevaintArt profile (both of which receive more frequent updates than the once a week I am currently doing on this blog!)

Sequential Inking!

This week has been a crazy busy week in my real life, so I didm;t get as much time to produce art as I would have liked, but I did decide to try my hand at some sequential inking - I have complete the first of what will be 4 pages by David Yardin. This was my first attempt at inking sequentials, and I am reasonably happy with how the page looks - but as with any sort of sequential art set, it will be how all the pages look together that will be the real test.

Anyways, as always, any opinions or feedback would be appreciated.

This week's inks and colours..

This week has been a very productive week for me, I have had the week off my regular, boring old day job, and spent the week producing work. I threw some colours down on some awesome pencils and inks featuring Red Sonja, Jason Vorhees and the Master Chief. I also inked up a really cool pic of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine.

I have also scored a commission to do a tattoo design of Hades this week - so hopefully that will be finished to post next week, and I have also started work on some sequential inking samples, so that is something else to look forward too...

But for now, here is this weeks work!

This weeks pieces.

This week, I coloured an awesome Terry Dodson Young X-Men cover (inked by Jorge Copo), and I threw some inks down on an image of the Master Chief from Halo, penciled by Jeremy Dale. I will have colours coming for the Master Chief image really soon, and if you want to have a go at colouring it - I have a hi res version available at my DeviantArt page, I love to see what people can do with my inks.

The Young X-Men cover featuring Mirage and Magma gave me a chance to play with a few effects (especially on Magma) and just have a bit of fun.

Check them out, and let me know what you think.
