Supanova Gold Coast

Just took delivery of my merchandise for this weekend’s Supanova down at the Gold Coast Convention Centre. Come on down to Nick & Pete’s Art Nuggets in Artist’s Alley, Booth D and pick up a 50 page art book, free Hilt bookmark, or just to see me making the Hilt comic live. Peter Yong will also be there with his lead chisel, sculpting 2D masterpieces hewn from purest graphite and selling his fine wares. Can’t wait!

Hilt – Fiona

HILT-Fiona01-Blog

It’s been one year since I started this blog and I would like to say thank you to everyone who has viewed, shared and appreciated my artwork. I am pleased to be able to share with you all my lead character from my comic HILT, Fiona. Fiona is the heroine of the comic and, after some recent redesigns of the head, I can say I’m very pleased with the way she has turned out. To see more of her and her development, and to keep up with how the comic is progressing, head over to the HILT blog.

HILT

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A down on her luck warrior is out hunting when she crosses paths with a party of knights returning from battle. When the warrior decides on flight instead of fight the chase is on.
This is the premise for short comic that I am in the process of making. Having tried my hand with some of the OzComics.com Sequential Challenges I thought it time to put all I’ve learnt into a story of my own. It will be about 20 to 22 pages in length and will hopefully provide me a with a earning curve that will help me develop as a comic artist. I have started a blog to act as a development diary for the project where all the artwork and musings are collected in one place.
As to the artwork itself, I spent quite a bit of time getting the composition right. I had initially intended for a more straight on composition with the warrior at the bottom of the piece looking back at the avalanche of knights chasing her, but decided against this because you wouldn’t be able to see her face. As such I went for this more kinetic image. Having settled on a composition the next step was to do the pencils. I spent a lot of time on this step with the intention of skipping the inking stage and using the pencil scan as the inks. Unfortunately the scan I got was not suitable straight up for the final art and so a fair bit of tidying up was required. Once the ‘inks’ were done it was on to the colour and background. This part of the process is great fun as the image comes together. The final act was to increase the size of the warrior herself. This really helped make the image more immersive by exaggerating the depth. Finally, the arrow was added and puts the icing on the action.
This weekend I will be at the Brisbane Supanova at the RNA Showgrounds with posters promoting the comic. I will be at the Pete & Nick’s Art Nuggets booth (Booth L2) in Artist’s Alley. I hope to see you there!
