STS Inktober 15

INKTOBER DAY 15! Another simpler concept piece for Save The Songbirds today. Here is Dixon the robin in a very action-y pose with a gun I based on the guns from Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. This pose is actually drawn from a real photo of a robin (minus the gun of course haha!), and I think I need to do more bird drawings from photos. I have in the past, but less recently. I’m thinking to try and de-violence the guns, I might have them be loaded with ‘fangs’ instead of bullets, just so they are less realistic, but we’ll see!

Me at Lakes 2018

This weekend I was selling copies of the first part of Denna’s Day Out – ‘Morning’s Missive’ at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. I was tabling alongside an illustrator and friend of mine Rory Dunne and we had a great, but tiring time. As well as selling comics and catching up with friends from last year’s festival, I had time to continue inktober. Here are the drawings I did for days 13 and 14.

STS Inktober 13STS Inktober 14The latter was inspired because it was drawn near the end of the second day and I felt very much the same! I am endeavouring to go to more comic conventions this year as I really enjoyed and did pretty well selling at this one!

STS Inktober 12

INKTOBER DAY 12! Today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art is of cars. As the main location of the book is England, I need to build a visual style that incorporates lots of interesting looking vehicles and buildings. This is a good start, but I need to go more stylised I think!

STS Inktober 11

INKTOBER DAY 11! Today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art is of shops and buildings on a street in London. I’m going to have to do a lot of development of these as London and other places in England are the primary place in the stories.

STS Inktober 10

INKTOBER DAY 10! Today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art is another of the songbirds in the Amazon rainforest. I was more bothered this time of getting the songbirds visible within the trees and I think it turned out quite well!

STS Inktober 9

INKTOBER DAY 9! For today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art, I’ve drawn the full foyer of Crystal House where the Anti-Predation Agency operate out of. I’m still not totally happy with the structure of it, but it’s getting there!

STS Inktober 6

INKTOBER DAY 6! For today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art, and with it being the weekend, I decided to do a simpler drawing. I was reading Asterix last night and saw a technique I wanted to try out, of the head that is spinning from side to side in surprise!
