Today’s Art ( 20th October 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the cover illustration for this year’s Halloween comic 🙂 Stay tuned for the next page tomorrow 🙂

Unlike previous Halloween comics, this one will hopefully be in full colour and I’ll be using the ‘rectangular’ format that I used in my previous webcomic mini series. But, unlike that mini series, this one will be a narrative comic, like last year’s Halloween comic.

Links to many more comics featuring these characters can be found here, if anyone is interested 🙂

Today’s Art (16th October 2017)

Well, today’s digitally-edited painting is another Aberystwyth painting. Originally, I’d planned to make some gothic horror art, like this drawing from 2015 (which is based on the same old photo that I took in 2009). But, whilst editing this painting, I decided that it would be interesting to go in more of a 1980s horror VHS cover/horror novel cover kind of direction instead.

Today’s Art (11th October 2017)

Yes! Today’s digitally-edited painting was originally just going to be a painting of a bookshop/newsagents from the early 2000s. But, I was feeling even more inspired than I had expected, so it ended up going in a much more interesting 1980s/90s cyberpunk style direction 🙂 And, yes, I used a bit of artistic licence since – were I to draw a realistic early 2000s horror bookshelf, it’d probably consist of at least 50% Stephen King novels…

And, yes, I consider this painting to be a belated part of one of my two “awesome stuff” art series (here’s a page containing links to the first one, I can’t remember if I compiled the second one into a single post)

Today’s Art (19th September 2017)

Well, today’s digitally-edited “1980s horror novel cover”-style painting ended up being slightly more minimalist than I expected. This was mostly because I was feeling slightly uninspired and, after failing to make another painting, ended up making this one fairly quickly. I’m still not quite sure why the magazine is in French though – it seemed like a good idea at the time, I guess.

“Late Reading” By C. A. Brown

Today’s Art ( 18th September 2017)

Well, this is the next digitally-edited painting in my “1980s Horror Novel Cover” art series. I was quite tired when I made this painting, so it probably ended up having more of a 1990s computer game kind of look to it (and, yes, I had to change the character design whilst sketching, since I realised that, in my sleep-deprived mind fog, I’d inadvertantly sketched Jill Valentine from “Resident Evil 3”).

Today’s Art (17th September 2017)

Well, I’m still in the mood for making “1980s horror novel cover”-style art. Originally, this digitally-edited painting was going to have rain effects, but it didn’t really work out that well – so, I went back to an earlier version that didn’t have them and did the last part of the editing on that version instead. Still, I really like how it turned out 🙂

Today’s Art (13th August 2017)

Well, I was feeling mildly uninspired when I made today’s digitally-edited painting. Since I was watching the last couple of episodes of season one of “Twin Peaks” at the time, I was in the mood for some 1980s/90s style art but, about halfway through sketching, I realised that the people in it looked like actors on a stage, so the painting ended up going in a slightly more random direction.
