Action Figure Sketches

Batgirl…

My daughter found her Batgirl figure this afternoon. So I did my Batgirl action figure sketch this evening. Mainly crosshatching with a fine-liner. Nothing too fancy!

Next up….. Batman!

Up to date with The Walking Dead

Yesterday I got up to date with TWD comic book story. All 147 issues so far. It’s really interesting to trace the different character arcs from the comic & compare to the TV series.
I’m hoping to be able to post some reviews
.. but right now I’m trying to figure out how to send different categories of posts to different pages.

Chapter 2: Miles Behind Us

Just deleted this review, as it didn’t really take off here on the website. The characters in the TWD comic are really well developed, but I’ve come to see that in my very precious free time I have little enough time to do drawings without also adding’monthly reviews’ to the ‘to-do’ list.

Chapter one

Testing. Issue 1. Haven’t read this issue for a long time. Tony’s art surprised me, seems almost like a parody now. Rick seems so different. And Glen calling the walkers zombies: ha! Forgot that.
Ok, deleted rest of review. Sticking to art for this website.

Warlock (X-Jam)

R.E.B.’s got a new Jam up on the CBR Boards:
X-Jam with a ‘through the ages’ theme.

My first pick got me Warlock… and I had an idea for Adam Warlock as a prehistoric shaman. It was only a couple of days later that it started to dawn on me… This is an X-Jam…. When was Adam Warlock ever in the X-Men…? The penny dropped that I should be drawing everyone’s favourite Technarch… the New Mutant Warlock. Doh!
I had an idea for New Mutant Warlock, but still wanted to complete my Adam Warlock idea, so I did both…

Prehistoric alien tech that encoded itself in cave art…. Technarch Warlock is a cave painting come to life…

Warlock New Mutants

Trapped in time, a Shaman from beyond our reality, protector of the Soul Gem, and only just beginning to realise the full scope of his mission…. here is prehistoric Adam Warlock:

Warlock Adam

Next up: 1920s Kitty Pryde! I’m feeling hemmed in by the limitations of my ‘sketchy’ style, and will try to open up to developing my drawing technique.

Next up…. my daughter has chosen for me… Batgirl!

Harvest Full Moon

This is a photo I took last night of the Harvest Full Moon. Just using a portable Ixus, no telescope. No manipulation needed to this image as the camera captured the colours nicely.

Blood Moon Eclipse

I took a load of photos of the eclipse tonight, using my Ixus digital camera and my daughter’s telescope.
The camera didn’t capture the orangey red of the eclipse, so I’ve increased the saturation and temperature of this photo to illustrate what was visible through the telescope:

Latest Jams: DC/Marvel

So both Jam hosts, REB and Justin, have got the latest finished Jam pieces up:DC Jam

Marvel Jam

Both great imo, but I’ve got to say, REB really came up with the goods by using the DC Map of the Multiverse as a background.

Not sure how both Jams could ‘fit together’, which was originally suggested (by yours truly!), but individually they look great.

Look forward to the next Jams, they’re free to enter so join in!

Keep Jammin’! 🙂
