Character rough

This sad chap is from my story 'MY robot!'. The design might change, or it might not, but I fancied having at drawing something from scratch on the Mac to see if I could (I couldn't, I scanned in a rough sketch and worked over that, I'm sure I'll get the hang of it though)
'MY robot!' will be part of the next AccentUK anthology, in the meantime check out their latest anthology, 'Zombies', featuring the strip I drew for Jason Cobley, there's some great stuff in it.
I've also got a script to draw for the next issue of 'The Girly Comic' which is pretty cool.
In the meantime I've started scribbling ideas for a whole bunch of pictures of some of my favourite films (well, the sci-fi/horror ones anyway). I WILL BE PRODUCTIVE! GRRRR!

oh so sweet. i love the detail evident on the full size image, and fantastic colouring... speaking of which, how are you getting on with the wacom tablet? i've been thinking of getting one lately, it'd be interesting to hear how you find it.

Cheers Andrew. Ah, Space Sentinels, used to love that show, not aged well has it. Of all the many many 'inspirations' for my robot, Mo was not one of them, they do look related though.
Thanks Paul, having a lot of time wasting (ahem, learning) fun with the tablet, it's very handy indeed - although I find it tough to draw with as it lacks the nice tactile aspects of pens/pencils/brushes.

And with good reason I'm afraid Laura.
