Acquisition Page 7 pencils

So, while I've been working on some other stuff, I also thought it was way past time I started working on the next page of Acquisition. Kind of annoyed with myself for not using the second colour pencil to lay out things like perspective, etc. before, it's such a basic thing I've seen other artists doing, and makes a big difference.

New T-Shirts and stuff!

So, you all know I have a shop, right? Well, here's a reminder:

I have a shop!

Also, I have been adding new products and designs. Cafepress have come up with some pretty neat all-over designs for shirts, so I've used my recent Fish monster confrontation on the streets of London design and some of my others.

 Here's the Cyber Cat design, looking all-futuristic (yet cuddly) on a Neoprene lunchbag:
 And The Gentleman on a Kindle case.

Superhero (in costume) sketches

So, after posting those sketches of the character in his secret identity, here are the sketches of what his vigilante look would have been. I was trying to go for something that looked like it would offer protection, but allow movement.
The helmet was designed so that it would have hidden the identity well, but still allow vision, and offer protection from blows to the head. As the sketch shows, it was meant to be an inner mask, with a harder, protective shell to fit over it.

Fish monster confrontation on the streets of London!

Some day, I hope to see this headline for real. I can dream...

So, finished shading means it's time to plop these guys down in the real world, like I did here

Why is the fish creature wandering Brick Lane? Is he a threat, or simply lost? This is what our heroine must decide: To aid it, or battle it?

Oh, the suspense!

Anyway, this has mainly been a chance to experiment and try a few things, and I'm pleased with the end result. Hope you all will be too!

Fish Monster Battling time!

I've finally finished the art on this, just need to put a background on it. This was fun to colour, but damn, it took ages. I really understand why some artists use a more simplified style. This took literally days to do.

A quick sketch

Just a quick sketch of a baby, to remind you that I'm still here. Been trying to finish off a detailed piece for a while, and hopefully that will be finished later in the week.
