The Rooftop League

I'd love to write a huge amount about this but i am back in my home town visiting the family this weekend and have to go take this guy on his morning walk, Lester The Super Dog. He is an amazing poochy and i miss him when i am in Cardiff :(

DC comics were running a monthly webcomic competition up until a few months ago ( where writers and artists would submit their comic ideas. 10 competitors each month would submit the first 8 pages of their comic and the public would vote for the winner who would get $1000 and a year long publihing deal.

There were tons of great comics and ideas (as well as some not so great) and i was going to give it a bash. My comic was called 'The Rooftop League' which was and idea i've had since i was about 13 or 14. It's basically inspired by games like Street Fighter, Tekken, Timesplitters, etc. A load of crazy characters just fighting for sport but they could use power ups and so on, and all this took place on the rooftops of a ficitonal city.

Anyways, above is my first and only draft of what i was going to enter before uni got ontop of me and then the competion shut down. I am gonna admit that it was a rush job because i was so eager to get the comic up on the site so in a way i am glad it never happened because this wuld have been torn apart on the forums!! I was have scripting it and half sketching it out with markers at the same time which was a fun way to work! Anyways, i'd love to spend a lot more time developing this, perhaps with some friends to get even more nutty ideas and characters in there and hopefully one day in the future make something of it.
All of this was done last Christmas, by the way.
Note: for any horrific spelling mistakes, my keyboard (and entire laptop) is on the fritz, big time. Eg, i tried to type the word 'amazing' earlier and it came out 'amg'.

Messing around on lunch break

I can only use photoshop at work at the moment because my laptop is poop so i am really rusty with it again. This was just me scribbling until i got bored. Should have a new comp soon so will be able to do hell of a lot more at home.

I'll be doing a biggish post soon about my Zuda comic entry which was never completed, mainly because ZUDA GOT SHUT DOWN!!! But I did do quite a bit of stuff with it so why not show it!

I'll be back to write about this later!

EDIT: I have time to write about this now! The webcomic is going brilliantly! Bryony and i have been working hard on it and we have had a lot of great feedback and comments so thanks guys! I take care of the writing and lettering chores aswell as ocasionally helping out with page layout and character/logo designs.

I've come up with some new characters/ideas/plot points recently anyway and here is a quick INITIAL!!!! sketch i managed to do of one at work yesterday. None of this will be occuring until much later on down the story line, but it pays to be prepared!

Scott Pilgrim Pin Up: Process thingy....

Ok, i'm going to try nd keep this short because my last post was quite lengthy. I made a print of Bryan ee O'Mlley's characters from his series 'Scott Pilgrim' to give to him as a gift and this is how i did it.
I started it late the night before (because i am a dumbass!) and began hashig out little thumbnails. I hated them all so sketched a Scott holding the sword on a sheet of A4 bristol board and decided it wasn't enough. So then i taped on another A4 sheet and drew te big Gideon head and added smokey-ness. I was going to leave it at that because i was in a rush but it still looked bare, so then i taped another sheet of A4 on the other side and added the angelic Ramona (Liz's idea). I decided i would flip Scott around in Photoshop so he was protecting her and inked the whole thing with a brush. I added the 6 other Evil Ex-BFs heads in last minute and inked them up too.

Then i scanned the sheets in and alligned them in a hurry. I cut and paste everything to be where i wanted them.

I then began blocking in colour (at this point i went to sleep and woke up early next morning to finish it).

I removed the pencil lines and put down the final colours which were mostly solids, then i added shades. I used some gradients on a few of the Exes and for the BG. I daubed on the smoke quickly with a big brush and added some liney light ray shiz in the background (i was going to try and make the background a similar pattern to that on the 4th book, but it didn't look right). Then i rushed to the printers, got it printed at an A1 length, then hurried off to Nottingham to deliver it! That's it!
I'm pretty proud of it. I've never combined traditional inking with digital coluring before but i really enjoyed it. In fact, workin on the novel i am really growing to love inking on it's own! More on that next time though!
I'm off out for buy-one-get-one-free cocktails and tapas, mmmmmm.....
P.S. Was in a wee car accident (sort of) on the way back from Notts, but thats a whole other story!

The BIG post!

Hey All! I know i've been really quiet on here lately, but there are many reason, the main one being; I'M SUPER BUSY! With work (which is still going amazing btw), a new web comic, my graphic novel and being sick, the last two weeks have been pretty manic. First of all:

Bryony James and I have finally started uploading our web comic which we've been working on for the last few months and now we have a few pages done we are confident we can start uploading and remain on schedule. We update every Monday and you can find out more at:

Second: I went to see BRYAN LEE O'MALLEY ( creator of Scott Pilgrim ) yesterday and it was a blast! For weeks before going i was planning on doing some fan art to give to him but then wasn't going to bother because i was already busy. Then at 9.30pm the night before going, my girlfriend Liz urged me to at least do a sketch otherwise i may regret it. I got to started right away and the above image is what i came up with. Considering the whole thing took about 4 hours i'm pretty proud of it, there'splenty i'd change but i'm going to do a process post on this piece at a later date. (Thank you Liz for making me do it x).
The signing was great, but he was on a tight schedule so it was quite brief. It was held at Page 45 in Nottingham, the only place in the UK which stocks the above poster,which i bought and got signed. Hurrah! The plan was to get all my books signed, but time was running short so i just got him to sign the poster which i want to get framed, shook his hand, gave him the print i made and said thanks for the books and to keep making great stuff.
The page count is at 15 at the moment and has been for the last week or so. I was ill last week so was spending my evenings trying to relax, so i'm not where i wanted to be at this point which was around 20 pages. I haven't posted any final images of it yet because the plan is to get as much of it done as i can before i show anything. This is because i don't want to get bored of the idea by talking about it all the time, i want to put all that energy into making it.
What i will say is: It's called 'I Live In A Robot', it's going to be roughly 150 pages, i'm doing it with brush and ink and adding greys, tones and letters digitally. I don't know how i'll be releasing it yet, wether i do it online, self publish/print it, or try to sell it to a publisher. The most important thing to me at the moment is to just get it finished.
If you've made it to the end of this post,
Thanks! And comment, let me know how you all are!

I managed to sketch this at work, i don't know when or if i'll ever finish it, really busy between work and the graphic novel, but it's something to post.

Lazy Bones ?

Hi guys, above are two super quick sketches i did in work yesterday, they're nothing worth talking about in detail, was just bored in last 10 mins on lunch break.
What is worth talking about is my Graphic Novel!!! I've mentioned it before ('I Live In A Robot') and have been working on it since, when i get time. I have got 10 completed pages of art, YAAAAY! It's all pencils, and brush and ink work so far, then i add greys and tones in Photoshop. I have set myself some rules for making it which i haven't got time to go into right now, but these rules are making sure i get this thing completed!
Also i've been writing another webcomic called Sambooka which is being drawn by Bryony James ( ) which is going extremely well. We've got five pages finished so far and i've plotted out the entire story. We're dying to upload that one but i'm really struggling with sorting the website out for it and can't seem to find the time to do it with work and all now. If anyone wants to lend a hand let me know!
On my next post i'll try and upload a snippet of I.L.I.A.R. Or maybe i won't......

I love REMAKE! It's a great little comic about this bloke called MAX GUY who is super funny and also kicks a lot of ass. Anyways i've been lucky enough to chat with the creator Lamar Abrams and i said i'd do a bit of fan art because i love it so much. I have never deliberately done any fan art before, that's how cool REMAKE is!!!!!! Go buy it! Now!
This is Lamar's site (or one of) :
How are you all?
EDIT: The link should work now

Uh, Homie Womies?

Lunchy Munchies

That guy who's kinda like a frog...

I did this at work today on lunch. It was just a quick mess about but i do kinda like it :)
I'm really busy at the moment but i am hoping i can start uploading more soon. I've got a job as an animator on a children's show and I have been working as hard as i can (and when i can) on 'I Live In A Robot' and i am also writing a web comic for a friend who's drawing it. Both projects have the first 4 pages of art completed. Busy, busy, busy!
'til next time!

Forgive the cruddy quality of these pictures, they were all takenon my phone:

So, this is how i felt towards the end of making my film

But now i am all done! And i feel like this!

I am super chuffed that i've finished it! There's only some touch ups that need to be made for our final end of year show, so i am still quite busy, but it's all been so worth it. I'll be able to post my film after our end of year show and i will be able to chat about it in more detail then. That's all for now. Oh by the way, the above pics are from one of my fave series of books, Scott Pilgrim. Sometimes i think Bryan Lee O'Malley stole my life and put it in his book! :D

P.S. What do we have here? Is it a certain comic a certain smeone is drawing?

Russia's Electro!

I missed paper and other physical things after watching Corey Lewis draw live on his site, so i scribbled this up just before leaving uni to try and keep me sane. Done with Markers.

How i feel right now....

A super dooper quick photoshop sketch of myself, several minutes before doing the sketch. My final film is due in May 21st and working so hard on it is really taking it out of me. I can't wait for Saturday to just stay in bed all day and read comics! Then Monday, after i have recouperated (is that how that word is spelt?) it's 'I Live In A Robot' all the way!

So yeah, this sketch is how i feel right now and probably how most of my buds working on their films feel too. Can i get an 'Aaaaaamen'?

I.L.I.A.R: Warrick concept

Hey guys! You may have heard me mention a web comic i'm working on, i posted a teaser image for it a few posts back. It's called 'I Live In a Robot'. A preview page of it is going to be included in a fund raising comic/art anthology a friend and I are putting together to raise money for Glamorgan University's showcase of our work; The Glammies 2010!

I haven't been able to do too much on the comic, my film obviously has priority over it. But when that's been handed in on May 21st, it's full steam ahead on I.L.I.A.R! I'm really excited about it. Here is a concept of one of the characters. I planned to do the whole thing black and white to produce pages faster, but doing the rough colours on this design was fun, so i may reconsider!
Hope you're all ok!

Minor Changes and Kratos

Made some changes mainly to the girl's face and there's another Kratos design i forgot to post a week ago. Haven't done much on the Kratos thing lately, uni has been nuts!

More Life Drawing

The top one isn't finished, i'm taking a break from it to come back to it with fresh eyes. The other two are just quick scribbles of buildings in Cardiff, nothing to write home about.
