Fantastic Four in Times Square
It’s been a long time since I did a straightforward B/W comic book pic, so here we go! The FF in Times Square.



Unfortunately it’s difficult to tell from the busy background but Johnny is lighting a cigar for Ben. I know that in these PC, kid-friendly times, Marvel get antsy about showing their characters smoking but to me, the Thing, Nick Fury and Wolverine should get to enjoy a stogie from time to time. Lung cancer’s no threat to Logan, Fury’s a grizzled war vet and Grimm has precious few pleasures available in life, the poor soul. Let the poor guy smoke!

Should also add that I made sure that Ben wasn't seven feet tall. There's an increasing trend to draw Ben towering over his fellow FF members or even guys like Thor, particularly since the Hulk's drawn bigger every year but Ben's meant to be six feet even. Reed's actually meant to be slightly taller than him.

Also massive props to John Byrne for this ... whilst I haven't liked everything he's done, for me he drew the best Thing in the business and he did a couple of really helpful 'how to draw the FF' one-age guides back in the 80s which came in  really handy.

Golden Axe OCs concept art Request Page 2

Golden Axe OCs concept art - Request
After my Golden Axe/Dragon's Crown crossover, I was asked by Shen Frickin' Woo to draw three of his OCs for Golden Axe, so here they are:



1. Raja, a panther man similar to Cronos from GA III

2. Tyrin Blade, a one-eyed barbarian similar to Kain Blade from GA: The Duel

3. An unnamed female elf member of the Flare clan, who I called 'Alisha Flare'



The current plan is for me to do two more pics, each showing a headshot, an action pose and a static pose, although I've a couple of ideas for unrelated quick pics to do in between.

Please visit Shen's awesome gallery at www.deviantart.com/shen-fn-woo

Sketch for first page of concept art - Golden Axe
Here are the pencil layouts for the first page for www.deviantart.com/shen-fn-woo

There are three characters - the panther man Raja, the elf amazon Arisha Flare and the barbarian Tyrin Blade. The plan is that I'll do three pages, each featuring a headshot, a static pose and an action pose. 

The pencils on this one are nearly there and I'm going to get the pen and copic markers out soon!

I was originally gonna give Raja a retiarius gladiator outfit with a trident but with that name, I figured a more eastern look with a scimitar made sense. In 'Revenge Of Death Adder', the heroes venture into a pseudo-Arabian land, so I thought it'd be cool for one of the characters to come from that location.

I'm a relatively old fogey who's been into superhero comics since the very early 80s ... I loved Spider-Man before then but 'Secret Wars' was the series that REALLY turned me into a comics nut. I loved drawing as a kid and won several art prizes at school but lost my enthusiasm for it in my teens when art became too much of a science for me, learning about three-point perspective and shading and such like.

I remained a big comics fan, at one point having a collection of over 3000 comics, and posting regularly on www.herochat.com but I was focussed on other things at the time, little unimportant things like getting married and having a daughter and stuff. Then, a few years back, I got wind that my all-time favourite comic artist, George Perez, was coming to a con in the UK. Fans of George will know that his eyesight's deteriorated badly in the past few years, so I wanted to see him while he was still able to travel. I decided to pick up my pencil again for the first time in nearly two decades to draw him a pic and show my appreciation for him, and I haven't stopped since!

I've much more serious now about my pictures than I was as a kid but drawing is now my number one hobby and I go crazy if I'm not working on something! I try to alternative between colour, grayscale and black and white, between pen, pencil and colour marker pics, and between comic art, TV, cartoon and video game fanart, more realistic pics using photos for reference and the odd animal drawing here and there. As my daughter grows up, though, I find myself drawing more and more pictures for her to stick up on her wall! She's turning into a really good artist herself!

Anyhoo, dat's me. Pleased to meetcha and what not.
