This was meant to be a quick entry for last weeks Jungle queen themed Trinquette Challenge, but deadlines and getting a bit carried away meant it was late. Again. Was fun though... I have to paint more jungle stuff!
Pencil and ink, painted in photoshop. No leaves were harmed in the making of this painting.
My entry for this weeks Trinquette Challenge, organised by the great Alberto Ruiz. Missed the deadline, but thought I'd better post it here as a reminder that space can be a lot more dangerous than you realise. And requires a far less bulky dress code than previously thought.
Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop. No astronauts were harmed during the making of this picture.
EDIT: Just thought I'd better explain WHAT the Trinquette challenge is:
the moderator posts a photo which all entrants use as the inspiration/pose for their illustration. For example: The amazing Serge Biraults entry : [link] The Talented Ben Tan's entry: [link] (obviously he likes retro space stuff too )
I like the number three - third favourite number after 1.6180339887 and zero in fact - though I do realize that zero is more a concept than a number. This ones for both and - concurrent visitor 333,3333

Quick colour over a tattoo design for a character on a documentary poster I've been commissioned to paint. Even thought its going to be a tiny element that few will notice, I kind of regret not making it sassier… or adding a couple of chickens for that matter - everything is funnier with chickens. Unless its roast for tea and you are the chicken... then, not so much.
Back in 2004 I was working on a comic I was calling 'Robyn Hood and her Mary Mehn'. Never got very far with the project before I stopped…. and now that Zenscope has launched a "Robyn Hood' comic of their own, thats where I will leave it . So here's me dragging out my character lineup art one final time, finishing off the colours and posting it as a farewell to the whole thing.
