'Cor, it's not every day you get free beer at work is it? Yep, payment for yet another office art project means I now have a nice four pack chilling off in the fridge, almost makes all the crap at work worth it!
Anyway, posted above is the coloured and pencil shaded Supergirl, worked at at A4 rather than full size. I've saved a copy as a Photoshop file as this is one of the few pieces I've done that I'm fairly happy with (a few niggles but overall about 85% happy) and I might want to go back and do "proper" colouring rather than just these flat colours.
Went rooting through my old art the other day to organise it a bit and not alot of old stuff really exists anymore. When I was working nights, it sent me a bit funny for a while and at one point I vowed never to draw again and threw out tons of art, including most of my Jock issues. However, I unearthed a few other bits and realised how much work I've done with Rol. As well as over 25 issues of the Jock, there's been covers for Pjang, a Spider-Man illo for Vicious, a spot illo for his website, short stories like "Trust" and "Lonely Boy" and various character designs: we're almost like the small press Moench & Gulacy! :)
October sees the publication of The Complete Rocketeer from IDW, completely recoloured by Laura Martin, Dave Stevens' personal choice for the project. This means I can finally give up looking for a collected edition of Cliff's New York Adventure. For those of you who've never tried this, now's the chance to own a gorgeous looking collection with a great sense of fun.
The Birmingham Comics show also looks interesting this October if rumours of the big name guest of honour are accurate. I would say who it is, but it'd be rude. Picked up a couple of Wally Wood and Al Williamson items dirt cheap at a Brum comic fair this weekend, as well as Charles Vess' Spidey graphic novel, also dirt cheap--bonus! Still, it was better seeing unexpected faces Sarah and Phil at the pub again, felt like old times.
Three episodes in on the new Heroes episodes and it's treading water a bit. It definitely needs a firmer direction but I have the sad feeling this season will be the last. I think principal filming has ended but there's a familiar TV face joining the show for a bit (won't say who in case of spoilers but it could b a good piece of casting).
Let's hope the returning Smallville is still good. The reason I worked on the Supergirl piece is I know time is short for me on Heroes and Smallville days so I thought I'd ease into drawing after being ill by doing that. Hopefully get back to Lonely Boy tomorrow (now that I've made some necessary alterations via the lightbox in the pencil stage) and get some serious pencilling done at the weekend...luckily the backgrounds should be fairly easy for the final pages.
