Inspired Cover 2

I did two covers for the Inspired cover competition, the one I posted a few days ago drew quite heavily on the comic I'm submitting, so I also did this one as a more general sci-fi cover. I like them both, but I think I'm being biased towards this one by all the drawing for the internal comic. Anyone would get sick of beautiful, delicate robots after several weeks of drawing them.

Koga of the Wolf Demon Clan

I don't feel good about uploading the work I've been doing for the new Inspired anthology, since it's a team effort, but to wind down between massive inking sessions I've been doodling some fanart and this one turned out pretty well.

Koga's one of my favourite supporting characters from InuYasha, even if he did turn out to be bloody impossible to draw. Rumiko Takahashi's style is really hard to translate into other ones.

Also, turns out I can't really draw wolves, especially not extinct ones. Oh well.

P.S. I've only read up to volume 23, so nobody tell me anything that happens after that!

These are a set of robots I designed as a birthday present for my friend Nam, shamefully about 6 months late. The top two are me and Nam, the little ones are AngstBot, HugBot and DanceBot.

I'm on a bit of a robot kick lately, I never even tried to draw them before. They're a lot of fun as it turns out.

Inspired Anthology

I thought you might like to see my cover design for the sci-fi anthology Inspired is putting out later this year. You can see a few more on the Inspired blog, as well as a lot of development work from the other members. I'm working on a second one, but it's turning into a lesson in why I should always scan my lineart before I paint anything, as I'm now having to go through the laborious process of tracing all the lines on Photoshop, printing a blue-line, re-inking it by hand and scanning it in again to colour digitally. If anyone knows a faster way PLEASE tell me.

Obviously that's taking forever, so here's some of the development work and the world's most basic page sketch to tide you over:

If you're interested in some of Inspired's older anthologies (I've got a comic in Pick & Mix 2, hint hint) we now have an online shop that you can find HERE.
