Another OzComics.com challenge entry. This week’s theme was Aussie comics, so I took the chance to have another go at ol’Rufus from Killeroo.

Lobo

ArtNuggets-NickSmith-LoboDirty pencil drawing for the Ozcomics.com Lobo Challenge this week. It was great fun letting loose and digging into the page with a soft pencil and pushing it around with a paper stump and eraser.

Usagi Yojimbo

At last! Usagi Yojimbo makes an appearance in the OzComics.com sequential challenges. This was a quick drawing I did last night using the Brush pen and fine liner, as well as a little white paint pen, which turned out to be really useful. Not only did it white out the blacks, but I could then reapply the blacks over it and you couldn’t tell the difference. It literally behaves like liquid paper. The pose for this image is a homage to the great Toshiro Mifune and his ronin character that he played in Kirosawa’s Yojimbo and Sanjuro. Great films. Check them out!

Dredd

Saw me some Dredd 3D last night. Gotta say I really enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised how close they kept to the comic in terms of not only the character and world, but also the bleak ethos.

Personally I liked the Judge Dredd design. The helmet was true to the icon comic version, while the rest of the costume brought the character a certain believability. It was a great proof of concept. I just hope they can get enough at the box office to do a sequel. A TV show wouldn’t go amiss actually.

If I was to have one criticism it is that Karl Urban was a little on the short side for my liking. I always think of Dredd as being tall and lean. With a more pronounced jaw also. Still, it was definitely good enough to inspire me to knock out this pic.
