Batman: One Page



One page deal i thought of a few weeks ago. I will try to colour it later but its 4am and i just need to not be looking at this anymore right now. Also, why is it grey? thats not in my file, maybe its a blogger thing? who knows.

Idea spawned from seeing the trailer for the Arkham Knight game and not really digging it (im sure the game will be great) There's something important lost when you forget all the cool aspects to Batman's character and just reduce him to a violent angry brood-monster.So I wanted to remember that Batman strength is that he is always many things at once. Just in time for the Dark Knight's 75th! Hurray!

Comic update (new pages yay!)






Ok so pages 8 through 12 are penciled and scanned. I am in the process of cleaning them up digitally now and its feeling good. I just switched to Manga studio 5 instead of photoshop and its really great, the line quality is amazing but the Ruler tool...oh lord the Ruler tool you guys, its a game-changer.

Anyways this is page 9 complete and page 10 still work in progress. Enjoy! (my hand hurts and i don't care!)

New Jack/Titan head model(s)



New final Jack/Titan designs, left side is him as a younger man, ww2 era Titan "Classic" and right side as older man, or "Prime" since this is the age he'll be when the story begins (in theory, you know, because i'm just making this up as i go along pretty much)

I like the feeling I get from each face, it was surprising how I could change younger to older with very few alterations to the linework. The style is also quite comfortable to find, I tend to default pretty realistic so this works without being too overkill on details.

Still working on more pages, got 4 roughed out. Think ill work on those next and then maybe come back to this for at least a head rotation.

Titan Meanderings.




 -First is Civilian clothes of older Titan/Jack, prolly gonna do a few more of different clothes as this one was good fun.

 -Second is just a mashing of different faces, still hunting for that one that looks just right. Top right is basically just Don Draper, i want to stick closer to that, the big brute/big jaw head on the older Titan doesn't sit well with me in the long term i think. Needs more subtlety and expression, and something that stylized isn't natural for me to draw, and would require bringing all other visual elements of my story into line with that as a keystone.

Bottom left on the other hand is too far the other way, too realistic but is more sympathetic to me. Its tricky stuff, but its a good place to play around.

Titan colours

Colour tests for Titan's new uniform design. I call it a uniform because super-suit doesnt sound professional enough, and Titan is all business.

Quick sketch n paint






This is a character for the Titan project stuff. Never drawn her before so i need to practice, find the traits to hold on to. This incarnation is abit too "modely", i want her to look more like a real person. But it was fun to paint, limited colour palettes are sweet.

Last son of Kyrpton.



Been workin on this one awhile now so im glad to finally be finished. Pretty happy with the result, was something of an experimentation for me, ive never really tried painting in photoshop before, not like this. Enjoyable experience, much still to be learned.

Usually wary of drawing Superman, he's so iconic is hard to do something interesting. But i like this idea, its not perfect but i like it just the same.

Rough Comic Pages.

These are some roughs for a comic ive been planning for some time with my Titan character. My plan is to do several vignette type stories with the character. This one is looking at the moment to be 20 pages long, which is abit too much, the future ones i will try to kept under half that. But its been a great learning experience thus far.

Meet Titan.

Been doing some drawing lately, pushing myself to try more difficult perspectives and poses. That this aint. This is more of a very safe pose i used to sure up some design elements of this character, "Titan." Hoping to do an extended project about him in the future.
