Totally into Spider-Man at the moment. As a result, in between commission work, I've been trying to keep up the artwork with some daily sketching and using some lesser known/unsung heroes and villains from the comic. Most of this I do to stick up on Instagram 'cos it's quicker than DA but wanted to submit some to DA 'cos I'd done quite a few.                                                     

Hope you like 'em!

Much love!

Sonya Rages
This is my latest commission from :iconreddofnonnac: of his OC Sonya. I've been very fortunate to be commissioned 7 times now by Greg and it's always great fun to draw Sonya as the character changes slightly each time. Got to flex some 'gore' muscles on this one as the storyline tells of her losing control. This is my first commission to be completed on my iPad Pro using Procreate. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Thanks again Greg for the commish. If you like this, please follow the link to his page to check out some of the stories and other artwork he's got on there.
Teen Witch
In honour of Dan Sehn from :iconargocomics: Birthday! Okay, I may have drawn this a while ago but thought as I’ve not put this up yet it would be suitable. A quick sketch of this ‘saucy sorceress’ from his title Sorority of Power. Happy Birthday Dude! :airborne:
Headshot Practice
Again on the iPad Pro using Procreate, trying my hand at adding colour to pics. I’m not a colourist naturally, it takes me a lot longer to colour up an image than most. However, for some reason Procreate seems to flow a lot more naturally for me, perhaps because it works a bit more painterly? Anyhoo, I was happy with this little test.
One of my buddies on Instagram often runs a ‘draw this in your style’ competition so this is my entry. Character copyright of Adam Cozart. 
More from the iPad Pro and Procreate. Still getting used to the effects and myriad different brushes available on the programme. Never drawn SpiderGwen before so thought it was high time I did. It was originally supposed to be warm up sketch but I got a little carried away and I really wanted to nail the light on the leg muscles.

your reference photos for really muscular women are a lifesaver! I couldn't find any poses or references these have been so helpful

Hey Rob!

I just found your art and i really love the amount of figure studies you do.

I was wondering though if you mind if i download some of these and collate them into a large sheet. 
My group has a convention coming up where we do commissions on the floor for people, and i've been wanting to piece together a reference board with different poses, hands and anatomical perspectives for our artists to have on hand if they're unsure about the proper proportions, or how to draw a particular pose.
We're a small art community of friends that just love art, but not all of us are at the same level, which is why i wanted to have a reference board, for those who aren't as adept as others.
The bits i was hoping to use were :
Sketchbook arms and Hands
Sketchbook Studies: Hands
All-arm Clock
Sketchbook figure studies 1

I'd love to have your permission to use them

Hi Rob. Your work is and has remained an inspiration over the years. I read somewhere that you were considering making a book on muscle anatomy. Is it finished and if so where can I buy it? Also are you opposed to making critiques on other aspiring artist works?
Bambs79 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello buddy, thanks for the kind comments, glad you like what you see. I would very much love to do a book on muscle and comic book anatomy, it's just finding the time. I work a typical 9:00 - 5.30 and all my illustration stuff is done in my spare time. I also have a family so spare time is even sparer! :D BUT, it is definitely a project I'm working on and when it's done you shall definitely know about it! 

In the meantime, I'd definitely recommend 'copying' some of your favourite comic artists as practice. When I say copying I don't mean exactly like for like. What I like to do is try and break down the figure and see/learn how they've done it. I find it really helps with things like foreshortening.

I'm happy to critique work mate, no problem. I checked out your gallery and your memorised figure sketch is really good. Especially for a pose that's so tricky!

Thanks again for the kind comment, cheers! :thanks:
