More quick sketching of an evening, i.e. very late at night. Batman Beyond is, I think, Batman of the Future in America, but heres its the beyond thing. I'v been practicing mainly and having a laugh with some random brushes Iv gotten from even more random places.
I would be working on Angua, but it isnt on this laptop at the moment, its on a hard drive, at home, where Im not. I shall get onto it next week though.
Just a quick sketch of an evening. Harley Quinn, the Jokers missus from the batman series, to my knowledge, Harley is the only character created in the animated series that was added to the comics, due to sheer awesomeness.
An update on the Angua painting, I have reached that stage where I think, "will I bother with finishing this" and I have to fight through it, I imagine its the artists version of hitting a wall, ya know, like athletes do
I thought I should post something, so this is Angua, possibly Corporal Angua, I go back and forth with the books so the ranks get lost on me. Angua is of course one of the City Watch in Ankh Morpork, the main city in the Discworld, from the Terry Pratchett books.
Angua is a werewolf, and just in case anyone is wondering, I didnt design that uniform, I took it from the cover of Men at Arms, the first book with Angua in it. I plan on doing a sort of montage type poster with all the Night Watch's main characters opposing the Silver Horde, with Cohen the Barbarian at the head and Death in the middle.
Perhaps the Death from Discworld would be a better title, who's to say really. I love the Discworld novels, and though an anthropomorphic personification of a natural force Death may be, he's bloody funny
A wolverine pic I been working on since the other day on and off, I realised its been forever since I even drew my hero. I'v been trying to push perspective lately, I feel the same old angles and poses are getting stiff, and we cant have that.
Donagh, one of the lads in college makes me Shilleleghs, mainly because he has access to blackthorn and a chimney thats in use.
The one on the right is one he made me a while back and is cleaned up, its also knobbly, which my other sticks dont like when it comes to training, they get all dented. Donagh makes them the traditional Irish way too, cut from wild blackthorn and covered in butter, then stuck up a chimney for a week, the combination of which blackens and hardens them. The little one on the left is for Beena, I was thinking of rounding the handle to make a nice club, something she could fit in a purse. I discovered pretty quick why the full "hammer handle" has to have the back half cut off, when I tried to use it for Irish stick fighting and nearly broke my elbow.
