Streetfighter challenge

Here's a bit of a process of my contribution to Oz comic's facebook comp this week. So: I did some pencils. Each figure was on a seperate page and I wiggled them about in PS till they sat right scale and angle wise
Now I spent alot of time here on each character. First I blocked in basic colours and got frustrated with the contrast and started to blend them to this stage nonetheless. Firstly I use the default opacity sensitive brush without that option ticked and then I started to blend with that little option ticked in the dialogue box...
On another layer I started to go over the pencils and add in darker shading and blended the colours below with some fresh ones on top. Much needed contrast comes through here.
Now on a layer set to overlay I punched up the vibrance adding a dark purple to get saturated shadows and an orangey colour to get the flesh tones more interesting.
Finally I add more background elements and on a layer set to hard light I add in the glow to the bodies that's eminating from the energy ball...I think I can call it that, or hadouken.

I inked this one traditionally for a facebook challenge and slapped on some colours in Photoshop.  Very happy.  I think I found an inbetween of my style and Mignola's I reckon.

Zombie Bride

Did this one for an Australian Comics Facebook group.  I really like it.
Though I'm not a dead keen (haha) zombie fan I thought the idea was funny and the atmosphere works quite well.

Here's a sweet little exercise suggested by the talented Kate Moon, view hers here I made some doodles then set about finding the faces in them.  Challenging actually but with really great results. I see my Dad in the middle and our PrimeMinister in the bottom left as well as a St.Kilda Football player above her.  Do it! Do it now!


Well this weekend was time for some real world painting.  This came to me while I was trying to sleep.  A total departure from what I normally try and do. I really like it and want to make a series in this style.
This one's called 'All that's required'
