STS Inktober 19

INKTOBER DAY 19! Today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art is of Jim the Wren teaching a P.E. class at the school he works at. I’ve been putting off doing some more detailed scenes of London, but hopefully I’ll start getting to those next week!

STS Inktober 18

INKTOBER DAY 18! For today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art, I have drawn Jerry the Bluetit and Rodney the Firecrest with their boss at the newspaper offices of the Pigeon’s Post. I’m not as keen on how I’ve drawn the office, so I’ll probably do a few more before drawing it in the final book.

STS Inktober 17

INKTOBER DAY 17! Today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art is of Oswald the Wren and Mark the Sparrowhawk, best buds working at their laboratory. Drawing this kind of thing is really hard, because even though I look at photos of labs, I have no idea what any of the equipment is so it’s hard to know how to simplify and what’s important to include! I must do further research!!

STS Inktober 16

INKTOBER DAY 16! For today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art, I drew the cafe again. I’m still working out the shape and design of this place, and it helps to draw it from different angles to make sure I won’t run into problems for a certain ‘shot’ in the story.

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.
