Hal Jordan redesign

Just a quicky for the fan-art challenge on the CGS comic forums. The brief was to update Green Lanterns costume for the silver screen. I ditched the spandex, cos although I love it i can never see it working, and based it more on his airforce background, throwing in a little motor cycle jacket as well. Think if I have another crack i'll lose the GL logo on the shoulders and make the logo just float in front of his chest, glowing slightly.
All digital by the way, starting in painter using the pencil tool. It's not bad... can't wait to get a cintiq though. one day...

stacebob birthday sketch

I tried to be fancy with this one... not a clever idea. I worked completely digitaly and wanted to treat it like a proper painting, all one layer, no fancy effects... Then i realized it was taking too long... and then i got a bit disheartened... I still quite like it, but you can tell how i start to rush it and skip definition as I moved down the piece. Ah well.
Quite like the colours though :)

Caretakers Uncannily Nasty Tales

Not really my art... but I coloured it. This is the cover for C.U.N.... well.. you get it right?
Art work by the inimatable Stephen 'Flint Lockjaw' Reid, naughty words by my good friend Rich McAuliffe. Not for kids but it's really funny.

Mimes pin-up

Some good friends of mine have just released their first comic. It's called Mimes and it's a great looking, all ages book about a super powered (sort of) Mime troupe.
It's ace. Go here to check it out.

This is a pin-up I did for the first issue. I finished it quite a while ago but I thought i'd wait till the book was out before I posted it.
