First effort for the latest 2000AD art comp. It's VERY early days for this strip (one episode so far), but it's already looking bloomin' great. A supernatural western drawn by Dom Reardon - what's not to like?
This isn't finished yet - I plan to add a figure visible through the hole, brandishing a smoking Colt (the whole scene is something of a steal from 'The Quick & The Dead'). I'll also colour it.
PS - this is also the first drawing I've fully inked with my new Pentel brush pen.
Wasn't happy with the first version of this, so I decided to re-draw the femme fatale-type. In an attempt ro try to get away from the scratchy line work I've been producing lately, I've gone with an almost abstract simple black & white image, then worked a minimal amount of colour in. The result is part noir, part Toulouse-Lautrec, part fashion illustration! I didn't see that coming, but had a lot of fun nonetheless.
On the Emperor's reecommendation, turned that demon pic into an entry for the current competition over at Warren Ellis' Whitechapel site. The brief was too re-imagine the cover of 'Amazing Adult Fantasy' #15, knowing only that you have to depict a character called 'Spiderman'. Thought this would make for a suitably macabre take on the subject.
PS - big thanks to Dave Evans (Bolt-01) for the ace logos.
Had an idea for a WW2 pic today (inspired by Huzzah! Noir and Jacek Zabawa's wonderful stuff) - here are the rough pencils for the central figure.

I'd love to make these appear as links, but blogger ain't letting me for some reason, but copy and paste them to find wonderful delights.
A while ago I answered the call for contributors for the next issue of Paragon and agreed to do a one-off illo/pin-up. The brief was simple - 'Demons!' So I've been giving it a good long think and trying to come up with stuff that I hope is genuinely scary. This was the first attempt - I've since produced a full colour scene involving this disgusting chap, but in the end I wasn't satisfied so I've drafted attempt #2 this morning. #2 is closer to what I wanted to achieve, but I thought this figure was worth posting too.
