Dredd vs. The Terror-tubbies

This is from a long long time ago (but from THIS Galaxy). It was mainly a test page to see if I could colour my line art using watercolour paint on unstretched cartridge paper. The paper crinkled up too much and I abandoned the page, although I still like the idea of Dredd battling with crazed mutated Teletubbies. Of course It's an image you'll never see in the pages of 2000AD, as I'm sure the copyright holders (BBC?) would never give permission for their characters to be depicted in such an horrific and violent way. A shame though, as I think it could be a Dredd classic and fun to draw too (in my 'umble opinion.)

The Captain Britain cover was drawn over a year ago and the 2000AD cover re-creation was finished just this week.

Fahrenheit 1671

Here is my cover artwork for the last episode of the Dragon's Den story (as drawn by the truly zarjaz artdroid, P.J. Holden). It's a, sorry, couldn't resist that. Click here to be taken to Pete Wells' excellent '2000AD Covers Uncovered' site for a much clearer version of the cover (my scan on the right here is pretty bad) and to see the original line art and pencil rough.

Deadman sketch

I've made Boston Brand's head a little smaller on the right hand side duplicate sketch. Looks better to me. I think I may have made 'White Tack Man's' model head too large in the first place. Where's my scalpel and sandpaper? "NO, MASTER, DON'T DO IT, I BEG YOU, PLEASE, NO, NOOOAAAARGH!!!"

Spot the difference.

Here are the preliminary drawings for the Robot Archie, Judge Anderson and
Modesty Blaise commission featured a few posts ago. Looking afresh at these drawings and the finished art, I'm beginning to wonder whether I've drawn Modesty's waist just a tad too thin.

A new post (at last)

Apologies for not posting for a while.
I'm going to try and post up something new at least once a week from now on (have I said that before?) Here's a couple of very rough sketches drawn from my Plasticine/white tack man. Stop laughing.
Oh, for Batman's head (on the drawing below the photo's) I had to reference some Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez art as my original sketch of the Dark Knight's face and cowl Well at least I was upfront about it, right?
