Bonus drawing - BATMAN !

So - the library at work had a 'draw your favourite fictional character' thing this week. I asked the librarian if I could do something as well, and got an enthusiastic affirmative, so I threw this together :

Penciled and inked the lines yesterday at lunchtime, tidied up the lines a little last night, quickly coloured and shaded during my break.

Not bad for a rush job !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #45 Illusion - final

Here's the final 42 - the Wizard of Oz :

Not bad. Still a bit rushed. I like how I've made the face seem transparent. I could probably do it better given time - but this is alright. I was going to add a Dorothy at the bottom of the steps, but, bah - this is good enough ! I've got other things to do !

New Drabblecast art - 1

Not much time to talk this morning - got to get to work. But here's the opening stage of the new Drabblecast cover art :

I've got to get the judge's other hand done - but I didn't have time to work out how it would look holding the saucer.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #45 Illusion - work in progress

I'm making decent progress in my report writing - but little else !

This is part of number 45 - illusion :

It doens;t look like it yet, but that's the Wizard of Oz. Trust me - it'll be clearer later !

I've also been asked to do some episode art for The Drabblecast again - which is exciting. I've got till the 10th of December to get it done. Did a provisional sketch last night. If I get time later I'll post it here.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #44 Two Roads

Super busy weekend with one thing or another, so I didn't get a chance to finish this up till today. I DID start it on Friday :
Okay - so this one isn't finished yet. The base of it is done - but there are a few things I wanted to fix up in Photoshop. A quick colour-in for one, adding a lightsaber blade to Luke, and perhaps some kind of background. I forgot to erase the pencil lines as well before I scanned - so I'll probably have to re-scan it.

The next couple of weeks are going to be SUPER busy. I've got junior reports to write ( I'm going to try to go for 15 comments a day - that should see me finished slightly before the due date ), a bunch of junior marking just around the corner, and a bunch of other smaller things. So I MIGHT be a bit slower in posting new drawing for a little bit, because the frequency of drawings might take a bit of a nose dive. Sigh.

I'll do my best !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #43 Dying

Gosh - another drawing ! That's two in a row !

This is my rendition of Elric of Melnibone. He was supposed to be sickly and consistently near death - keeping himself alive though magic and drugs. That is until he acquired the cursed sword Stormbringer, which would drink the souls of those it killed and transfer the life energy to Elric. But I'm guessing there's a good chance you know that already !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #42 Standing Still

A quick turnaround today ! I've surprised myself.

Medusa ! Sure - she's not standing still, but you'll be if you catch a look at her. Forever !

BoS Drawing Challenge - #41 Teamwork

A little later ( again ) than I would like - but I present to you number #41 :
The robots Atlas and Peabody from the video game 'Portal 2'. A great couple of characters. I still haven't completed co-op mode on Portal 2. I really should - it was fun.

Helping Hand - Chez Awesome logo - version #2 with colour

I've been messing around with vector paths, and tonight I've got some colour added :

Not too shabby. More shading to come.

BoS Drawing Challenge - #40 Rated

A little later than I'd like with number 40 - but here it is :

Not the greatest of thematic links here. I'm pretty sure that Ripley mentions that she's rated to operate one of the loaders before they all drop to LV426. That might not have happened - but I struggled to think of anything else !

I'm not thrilled with this one. The loader was hard to draw - and I messed up the left arm somewhat. The perspective doesn't look quite right either. Ah well - they can't all be winners ( as I'm sure I've said before ! ).

House award evening kept me from posting this last night, but here it is now :

Get it ?
