Darkseid Hulk

Done for the current CBR DC Jam
Done for the current CBR DC Jam

I drew this on holiday, with some coloured pencils I borrowed from my Mum (as I’ve left my 12WX at home). My nephew suggested I colour the pants purple to make it more Hulk-like (cool suggestion!). My daughter chose the next number for the Jam (#40).

Time

George: Maybe time’s going on strike.
Paul: What for?
George: Shorter hours.
Ringo: I don’t blame it. It must be very tiring being time, mustn’t it?
All: Why?
Ringo: Well, it’s a 24-hour day, isn’t it?
John: You surprise me, Ringo.
Ringo: Why?
John: Dealing in abstracts.

The Phantom Stranger

Phantom Stranger
The Phantom Stranger as an X-Man done for the DC Jam over at the CBR Boards.
My sister’s family came to stay this weekend and were very encouraging about this piece, especially my nephew. I used the lasso marquee tool for the first time (to make the head bigger!).

Red Spider-Robin

Here’s a drawing for R.E.B.’s DC Jam over at the CBR Boards…. A ‘Secret Wars/Convergence/Amalgam style mash-up.

Red Robin Spider colour
This is Red Robin done as part of the Spider family. The hood is inspired by Spider Gwen, and I realised that the curves on that right arm are very ‘inspired’ by Judicator Prime’s drawing style (another CBR Board member). These jams are great places to experiment, and I’m trying to develop my own style with these drawings. I’m happy with the costume design, especially the way that the different elements fused together… But I’m frustrated about the smudging effect on the cape, and the loss of clarity on the edges to the legs. I tried to tidy it up, but that wasn’t working so I left it as is… Hopefully to amend/tidy up at some point. I’ve become increasingly aware that I’m only scratching the surface of Manga Studio 5EX’s potential, and I really need to get more clued up about it. NEXT STEP: Download the Manual!!!

DC / Marvel Jam!

I’m looking forward to 2 new art Jams starting up on the CBR Boards: Marvel & DC… & I’m pleased they accepted my idea of trying to link them up to make a big Marvel/DC Joint-Jam.
I’m hoping to take part in both Jams, and will also be posting my drawings here, on my own little corner of the internet…
