Hellboy Art Nouveau Portrait

Hellboy Art Nouveau Portrait

Mike Mignola has been an inspiration to me not only for his amazing art and storytelling but for his craftmanship combining the two.

A reminder I still have a few spot open for commissions – details here


Sniper Wolf Metal Gear Solid

Sniper Wolf of Metal Gear Solid ink drawing done as a gift.

I know very little about these games except for one experience years ago of a cut scene so long we had time to make lunch, eat lunch and clean up before it finished.

I’m really happy with this drawing. Sometimes just a few lines suggesting shapes rather than illustrating lots of details really works.

Battle Chasers Red Monkia

Red Monkia – Pistol wielding charming outlaw from Joe Madureira’s Battle Chasers.

Joe Madureira’s art is a major reason why I started reading the X-Men comic books as a kid. His style has so much movement and when he drew characters they seemed to be more solid and more expressive. They reminded me more of animation, which I loved, then any other comic art I had seen at the time.

I’m not much for video games but I’m tempted to try Battle Chasers: Nightwar firstly because it looks amazing and secondly to final see his comic book characters move.

Copic pens on vellum bristol paper.
