Something with Colour and Something Blue

August 5, 2011

In recent times I have made a concerted effort to incoroporate colour into my doodles, I have done this by drawing with watercolour pencils and then spitting all over my work.

Sometimes it turns out quite nicely:

I also have a theory that anything drawn with a blue pencil looks professional and thus makes it ten times better. Why else would animators do it?


Green Horror – Killer Cactus

April 14, 2011

This is my first entry to repaneled.

It comes from ‘Green Terror’, a great little horror story in which a jealous, murderous cactus kills pretty much everyone; two men (one moustached so had it coming) an innocent woman and even the itself!

Need I say more.

I started with a rough sketch then scanned it in and went over the lines with a blue brush tool in photoshop. The intention was to change the colour of the lines then digitally paint and colour it in a similar fashion to the original panel. However things took on a life of their own and I found myself doing something sligtly different and abstract. The great part was it didn’t take me that long to do (as opposed to a cover) as I worked straight off the sketch.

I wanted to get a kind of 1950’s feel with the colours and think I got it. I mean i’m never going to really know because I’ve never been to the 50’s. All I know is what i’ve seen in books or on TV…and seen in thrift shops.


Move Over Bitch I Wanna Drive!

Well that’s what I reckon Santo says (Santo being the silver dude), because I don’t speak Spanish.

The only reason the fight drags on as long as it does is probably because it’s been a very long car journey, they’re both horny and there are no hot mountain girls around.
