Can you show us some of your old comic work and maye some more opencil scribbles? That would be great!)
man you have incredible figurative skills. i think i like your blue lining more than your inking. but you still can't deny that they are bad ass drawings.
thanks all, another crappy enviro image for a new page:
worthless: usually, yep
GunTrouver: now that's asking... not sure to be honest, it was very different back then... we'll see
chris ocampo: really? they lack style to me, but there you go...
csteingart, Rusty:thanks chaps! One day I'll get the hang of those slick pro lines you two do so well...
I'm out of here, I got LOD's to make (grumble)
Nooooo salary, I can not belive that you think they lack style.You can not imagine how I will love have your style.And the best is not your style is your skill to make us belive that your worlds with this characters exist and this is for me the most important those characters you draw they have a life.

good stuff here, your faces look very good!! like everyone keeps on saying, UPDATE!
it's coming, it's coming....
I was wanting to get something finished together, but that's not going to happen any time shortly, so a few more sketches (you know, dragoneers and heads and speech balloons etc) sooooon....
alas, for now, no. 2 in an occasional series.....
evidence : here you go (sorry about the scan) tools
I'll normally go straight from the blue line to the tracing. On a personal note, I rub the tracing paper down with my palm a few times, the pen line comes out even finer (yeah, yeah, greasy salaryman hands...).
KhenU : who knows, that's be great, but I'm not sure there'd be enough interest. Cheers for the support sir!
camilografix, shyamshriram, tensai, mr. Point, you're all crazy! but soon!
Arri, thanks, that means a great deal. I'd like to think there's a whole background to these characters that people can see, or even add their own.
here's a heads up for CA.org-er rsly75, he's put together a blog catering for info on character design, in a moment of madness he included me on there. Sketches and interviews galore, ignore my contribution and check out some fantastic character work: characterdesign.blogspot
Hot Shit man, good interview, we want more!
Awesome umm.. Calum??? really great interview... and all this time I thought you staright out drew those black lines... I knew they were too perfect god I feel better now!!!!
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Aaw Brighton!! I thought you were somewhere miles away!! like continental distance.
Well if you get bored drop by the Uk thread in the local artist groups.
Though it'll prob be pretty silent while half of us bugger off to prague. We'll prob do some meets again once we are back, usually life drawing then the pub.
I'm still subscribed too your scrumptious updates!
Great interview, makes me happier about the art industry, less nervous about my chosen degree.
Have a cream tea on me!
pentel makes blue lead? I've been using their red 0.5mm but the blessing and curse is how brittle it is. I'm forced to keep my hand lighter, which gives more graceful lines at the expense of energy.
Man I love your stuff. Always amazing and humbling.
I love clean linework. I couldn't belive my eyes when I found this sketchbook. Amazing work. There was this guy in once in Heavy Metal ( Metal Hurlant ) that did super line work with a gazillion details. I haven't seen his equal until now. I'll go and scrap my sketchbook now. I need to work on my lines... for a long, long time...
Only Fools and Heroes doesn't wait
for a resque in the last minute.
thanks all for the support, the line work updates are coming, I've just been otherwise (very) pre-occupied of late.
I'll comment more with those updates, but for now, here's an old one which is sort of relevant for today, La Valse des Monstres, inspired by Yann Tiersen's album of the same name.
Till next time...
Cool pig !
Are you french ?
i would be curious to know your age, and the kind of job you got thanks to these very cool drawings.

Smoked pork! Great one. To bad I'm a veggie, not! I would not eat pork even If I was threathened. Other than that Great work. Nicely colored and detailed. Cant wait to get there! And sureley cant wait to see more.
fantastic work, your art made my entire day.
turns out this is all for now. I know, I know, a let down for me too. Got a whole lot of other life stuff going on right now so updates are going to be fewer and further apart (and god only knows about quality levels...).
vigostar, yeah, sorry to disappoint!
Badger, I know, I wish it were more exotic too, but.....
bwkeough, energy and grace are certainly lacking in my stuff... but I wish I could blame it on the lead....
Cyberotter, Heavy Metal is where I first found European comic art, I guess it had a profound influence!
Arctis, no, I'm at the other end of the tunnel....too old to get any better... doing games...
thanks everyone, you're all crazy though! The support means the world to me, thank you.
the usual suspects:
due to the lack of time right now, I think I'm going to set some goals. Some finished pieces or at least some proper full figure designs. I think the heads and heads and heads are getting a little tired and not really pushing me enough.
We shall see...
