Inspiration Gnome

I keep getting a lot of requests from friends for more cartoonish style of characters, so I tried my hand at it.

This is an ' Inspiration Gnome ' , if you feel lazy or uninspired, he hits on the head with his staff and Presto !  You feel inspired to draw or send in that application.

Serengeti Samurai - Graphic Novel

I finally made a Graphic Novel.

My Rino-Riding Samurai from the future.

Old school, Pen and Ink. And in the process nearly destroyed my hand. Some of the pages were quite Ink heavy which required a lot of repetitive actions on my part, with some pages taking up to 6-8 hours of inking. I loved doing the style, but I doubt I will repeat it again, as my arm was aching badly after inking a few of the more detailed pages.

I tried to go for a bit of Franklin Booth/ Joseph Clement Coll with my style thrown in.
Pigma Micron and Japanese Brush pens.

I also had great fun creating the world of the comic.
