The Sketch-Files/Inking.Com Update...

I have been running this Blog since August 2006,
but I now feel it is the right time to change it,
it has been good, and thanks to all the people that have left comments on the Blog over the past 3 years.
It has not really been going the way I intended it to, so I will be starting up a new Blog very soon, all the details will be announced here, also there will be some changes to my inking Blog.
All that is left to say is thankyou, and have yourself a safe and Merry Christmas and all the best for 2010!
Look forward to seeing more of your'e comments when the new websites are up and running.

Early Pencil & Inking Samples

Here are some pages of my eary pencil and ink samples.

Page 1: A inking sample page I did when Top Cow came over to the UK to the Bristol Con, this page helped me get my first and only inking job with Top Cow which was on a title called KIN inking the very talented Gary Frank.

Page 2: Very early inking sample page which I only found a couple of months ago! around this time I was trying to get work with Marvel UK pencilling or inking, this must of helped as I did later get to do some assstant inking work on some of the Deaths Head spin off titles they were producing at the time, this sample pencil page was from a title called ''Knights of Pendragon'' and was drawn by John Royle who I have worked with on many occasions since then on Spider-Man and more recently on G.I.JOE for Panini(Marvel UK).

Page 3: One of my early sample pencil pages, which I sent onto Marvel USA, I think I remember I got a positive response from this, unfornately it did not lead on to any work, but when I think about how long ago I did this, it is not a bad page really, I should try to put some time aside and do some more.

Page 4: This was one of my favorite inking sample pages I did, not only was it my favorite character, that being Spider-Man, but it was drawn by friend of mine and amazing artist Dougie Braithwaite.

Back To The Drawing Board

I started a new life drawing class about 3 weeks ago for the first time in a number of years, the drawings above are all the sketches from the class and are in numerical order.

Drawing 1: 15 minutes. This was allways going to be a bit difficult being the first drawing as it has been some time, but I felt I improved as the drawings progressed.

Drawings 2 & 3: 2 minutes. Enjoyed these felt I was loosening up a bit.

Drawings 4 & 5: 15 minutes each. This I found interesting and something I don't think I have done for a long time drawing with white chalk and charcoal on black paper.

Drawing 6: 30 minutes. Enjoyed drawing at this size which was A1, so just a section here from the drawing.

More drawings from class 2 in my next post!
