Noodle Doodle - Shakara

This weeks noodle on ICN is of Shakara, created by Robbie Morrison and Henry Flint.
First is the wonderfully grubby pencil drawing of Shakara. Then the background tech stuff that might be ships or a space station and finally the inked version of Shakara.
Then throw it all together in the ol' digital melting pot, simmer for a few hours and out comes the finished pic.
This noodle was a tremendous amount of fun to draw.
Damn, I wish the Shakara story arc wasn't done and dusted.

Zombies, zombies, zombies....

This months theme on the Collective Thinking Blog is Zombies.
Here's the pencil drawing which was digitally transmogrified into black & white and then coloured with the ol' digital crayons.
So there's yer man, he's been battling through the hoardes for weeks, maybe months. What happens if that 'why bother, why not give up, it's all too much' thought happens at a ridiculously inopportune moment.

Noodle Doodle - Captain America

I've just recently joined the illustrious ranks of the Irish Comic Noodlers on Irish Comic News.
Our posts are initially exclusive to ICN, but I thought I'd show some preliminary steps to the Captain America post here.
In the interests of space-saving I mashed the messy, overworked pencils and the nice clean inks together.
Now that I look at it... it's a bit like some slightly deranged Cappy cosplayers are doing some wildly enthusiastic dance routine of some deep significance to them.
The finished pic makes much more sense :)

Beatrice for Creator Owned Day

This is Beatrice.... she's been rattling around in my head for a while.
There's a story here. I'll let her wander about a bit more and who knows, maybe she'll appear in the pages of a comic someday.
This is her first appearance in the world especially for Creator Owned Day which is today :)
Creator Owned Day is, I think, the brainchild of Stephen Downey
