Acquisition cover

So, this means that Acquisition is finally finished, or at least the first story.

 I tried some different techniques (seeing as a whole reason for doing Acquisition was to experiment and try new things). Rather than detailed pencils and inks, I did a pencil rough of the figure and the cybernetic organs, which I scanned and inked and coloured digitally.

I had the text for the boxes already written down, and I tried a couple of different ways of arranging them, and frankly, I'm not sure what I was thinking with the first version, below. Still, the more composed version above works better to my eye.

Charlotte's Web and Smaug

Another couple of pictures I did for Tammy's classroom, this time a Charlotte's Web picture, and Smaug from The Hobbit (based roughly on an Archaeopteryx, rather than the movie version).

Harry Potter

It's nice to get a reason to draw something different from my usual. Tammy needs some displays for her class, so I'm helping out. Here's Harry Potter.

Acquisition, Page 8

Blimey, I started this in 2011, and this is the final page (although, I still want to do a cover). But, yeah, here's the final page of the first story of Acquisition.

This is a quick one I did for a kid at my comics group. He's designing a superhero of his own, called 'Inferno', and he's got some cool ideas . Apparently, when his power gets out of control, he becomes 'a FireLord', and I was asked if I could do a quick sketch of what that might look like.
