DSC Catchup – 220711 Isaiah Bradley

Another oldie sketch challenge from 22 July 2010 – Isaiah Bradley from Truth: Red, White & Black by Robert Morales and Kyle Baker. Used bodybuilder Victor Martinez as reference for this. Also thanks to the grungy paper texture by bashcorpo was able to age the colors and try to make it look like a flyer that had survived the end of the war.

DSC Catchup – 290711 Bucky

Another DSC catchup. Finding going back through challenges I missed is great practice and also a great source of ideas for images. Anyway from July – Bucky Barnes [link]

I was going to draw him frozen but then thought it would be a better shot of him holding cap’s shield wondering if he could ever fill that role – and nowadays we know he can 😉

DSC 181011 The Children

Challenge – The Children from Midwich Cuckoos/Village of the Damned http://outcaststudios.com/forums/index.php/topic/11291-daily-sketch-challenge-vol17-03/

For today’s sketch challenge I decided to have a bit of fun, I recently saw the Simpson’s episode “Wild Barts Can’t Be Broken” in which the kids take vengeance on the town grown ups by revealing all their secrets. Anyway during which there was a drive-in screening of the movie “The Bloodening” – a parody of Village of the Damned. So I decided to use a screenshot from that movie http://simpsonsimages.tumblr.com/post/1452600783/cold1-asked-hello-would-you-happen-to-have-a as reference for this sketch


DSC 171011 Van Helsing

Turns out my decision to use Hugh Jack as casting for Simon Garth piece the other day, the Monday challenge? Gabriel Van Helsing http://outcaststudios.com/forums/index.php/topic/11289-daily-sketch-challenge-vol17-02/
As played by Hugh Jackman in the 2004 movie. I also decided to include Richard Roxburgh as his nemesis Dracula

Done in sai with photo references from google

WSC 151011 Zombified – Beast

The weekend challenge over at Outcast is to make your favourite character into a ravenous zombie [link]

I decided to do Beast (Marvel 616 classic blue pre kitty cat version) and he is where I have got to so far – beast bouncing down a corridor in the x-mansion looking for more brains  and encountering someone scanning the hallways for zombies – hence a targetting overlay for the zombie detector built and operated by Forge (probably)

For those interested in this sort of thing, here are some of the WIP steps

Note that I changed the overlay text based on a suggestion by Nate over at outcast to make it look more like a database output.

DSC 141011 Simon Garth Zombie

Another day, another challenge and another character I am not familiar with, Marvel’s Zombie – Simon Garth [link]

I felt that the concept might make a good movie and thought Hugh Grant would be a good leading man for the role. The pose is somewhat based off a Zombie statue which i used as reference (also referred to for the ripped clothes), while my zombie face is attempting to zombify Hugh. To be honest it looks more like Iron Maiden’s mascot.

Hugh head “before” sketch is about 15 mins work, Zombie is a couple of minutes to capture pose, sketch about 25 mins. full lined image around 25 mins on top of that.

DSC 121011 Haunt No1 2nd Print Homage

Today’s  sketch challenge – Image/Todd McFarlane’s Haunt http://outcaststudios.com/forums/index.php/topic/11273-daily-sketch-challenge-vol16-49/

I used the 2nd Print Cover to Issue #1 as reference http://www.comicbox.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Haunt1_cover_2ndPrint1.jpg

For those interested the rough sketch below took about 20-30 mins, I haven’t drawn him before and kept wanting to turn him into Spidey / Venom;)

DSC 111011 The Scream – Almost

Another fun sketch challenge today – Ghostface from the Scream movie franchise. http://outcaststudios.com/forums/index.php/topic/11272-daily-sketch-challenge-vol16-48/

Was surprised noone had submitted this for the challenge yet given the mask was modelled on Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream but here is my crappy homage to that painting and the film – just over 60mins in Sai.

DSC 101011 Lon Chaney Jr

Today’s challenge was to do a sketch of the great Lon Chaney Jr – horror stalwart and sometime Wolfman/Frankenstein actor. http://outcaststudios.com/forums/index.php/topic/11270-daily-sketch-challenge-vol16-47/

I wanted to do something a it different so I used the following as reference http://waffyjon.blogspot.com/2007/05/genre-movie-image-of-day-frankenstein_29.html and http://www.listal.com/viewimage/444407

Each sketch took about 30 mins so 60 mins in total.

The Boys of Summer

Well I was going through some of photos for sketch challenge over at Outcast (the one i ended up submitting images of my dad and granddad for) and found this image of me and my brother taken back in the 70s – probably 76 judging by the rosy tans

anyway I thought I would have a go at sketching it and this is the result. Too late sadly to add to the other submissions for the challenge but felt I should finish it and thus complete 3 generations of the family [link]

Done entirely in Sai.

WSC 08/10/2011 T.H.U.N.D.E.R Noman Revamp

This weekend’s challenge over at Outcast was to reimagine a public domain character [link] using one of the characters from PDSH [link]

I browsed through the characters and came across NoMan [link] – Anthony Dunn transferred his consciousness into a series of artificial bodies to try and become immortal – he became founding member of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. and gained an invisibility cloak.

In my reimagining, Anthony Dunn is a scientist working on invisibility and phasing technology to allow infiltration of enemy facilities without causing damage. While still in the early stages of testing Dunn was bombarded with unstable energy from his phasing generator which caused his body to being to erode away into dust. Unwilling to give up on life just yet, Dunn managed to reach another piece of experimental equipment within the lab, managing to transfer his consciousness into the formerly lifeless body of a battle droid.

Forced to live within the artificial body Dunn continued with his work, hoping for a way to reconstitute his own body and return to it. Unable to stabilise the phasing process he abandoned this part of his project to concentrate on the invisibility angle, ultimately creating a suit that was capable of bending electromagnetic energy around itself. This effectively left the wearer invisible to most forms of detection.

The government was unwilling to test the suit on another person and so Dunn (as a robot) was forced to test it. Instead of returning to the military base he was working from, he used it to escape in order to be free to continue his own agenda while using the suit to help others when he could as NoMan

DSC 06/10/2011 Matthew Macgregor

I wasn’t familiar with today’s daily sketch challenge [link] subject so here is the low down –

Matthew Macgregor is a descendant of Scottish outlaw Robert “Rob Roy” Macgregor, the protagonist is a stubborn and grumbly retired Pinkerton in the Zuda Comic series High Moon and demonstrates a degree of ritual psychometry. He carries a pair of pistols with the words Gáe Bolga carved into the hilts. His bullets of choice are Blaine Bullets. Mac’s history shows a past with James Bowie, Abe Lincoln, Allan Pinkerton, and Marie Laveau.

Time taken about 45mins in Sai. Looks a bit too crocodile dundee to be honest but hey ho…

DSC 05/10/2011 Underworld – Selene

Selene is the main protagonist in both Underworld and [/i]Underworld: Evolution[/i], portrayed by Kate Beckinsale and also by Beckinsale’s daughter, Lily Mo Sheen, in Underworld: Evolution in flashback scenes as a child. She is loosely based off the Marvel Comics character of the same name.

Today’s sketch challenge was in keeping with the vampire theme started with Bela Lugosi yesterday

Completed in Sai in around 45 minutes using the following reference of Kate Beckinsale as Selene [link]




WSC 01/10/2011 (#2) Running Free

Due to yesterday being such a long and almost pointless day at work and not being in a position to have the data I need today – I am not in work. So I have taken the opportunity to do another submission for the weekend challenge over at Outcast [link]

Done using Droemar’s tutorial [link] and this reference [link] (found by Jay Kay over at outcast)

Most of the image was done in Sai as normal, but added the clouds and water in MyPaint. Roughly 2hours work I think.
