HILT – Process Demo

HILT-StyleTest01-NickSmith

This week I’m taking a break from my day job at Defiant Development to blitz my comic in an effort to get ahead on it. It’s been a productive few days and is going to be capped by my attendance at ZICS (Zines & Indie Comic Symposium) this weekend. I’ll have a table there selling my wares, and will be doing a talk about my motivation and process I use in my Hilt at 2pm on Sunday as part of the Skillz 2 Pay the Billz workshop. If you’re in the Brisbane area come check it out.

In the meantime over at the HILT blog I’ve posted a style test I did a while back, an example of which is at the top. Click on the link or the image to head on over and check it out.

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.
