Fan-Art Friday #14: Wizard Week!

Toda is a bit of a cheeky Fan-Art Friday because I didn't technically draw this for today, I drew it for Timothy Winchester's Wizard Week!

Embiggen Me!
In other news, Fan-Art Friday may be updated a bit sporadically for a few weeks because I'm working on a comic with my friend John

Fan-Art Friday #13: Samurai Jack

Long ago in a distant land, I, Ben, the shape-shifting master of darkness, spent 3 hours trying to sort out a wireless network bridge to get the comp in the bedroom connected to the internet...

I failed...

Here's a rubbish samurai jack watercolour!

It was a bit of an experiment because I thought I'd try and not pencil any outlines first! I'd done a rough sketch on a scrap of paper, but just went straight in and painted this. It's not turned out great, but I learned a bit from it :)

Fan-Art Friday #12: Ramona Flowers

Another last minute Fan-Art Friday! This week I have been busy doing sketches for a COMIC, that I'm working on with Jobby the Job :)

I wanted to draw a lady today, because I (generally) suck at drawing the fairer sex, especially trying to keep them in my style (which is hard enough to pin down at the best of times). Anyhoo, after a few failed attempts at drawing the lovely Amy Pond (suggested by my even lovlier girlfriend Kat ^_^), I sketched this pic of Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim Vol. 2

Brian Lee O'Malley has excellent skills at drawing characters of both sexes in a consistent, expressive style and (despite being a bit of a latecomer to the whole Scott Pilgrim thing) his books have been a massive influence on me.

Fan-Art Friday #11: Rincewind

Didn't think I'd make it in time today but Hah! Look!

Anyhoo... I'm too tired to write a post right now so I'll do that tomorrow (that's not against the rules!)



It's Saturday Morning (who's gonna play with me?) and I'm feeling much more awake! Also, it's Free Comic Book Day today!

So, yesterday's Fan-Art Friday picture was everyone's favourite failed-wizzard Rincewind. I wasn't sure what to draw this week, but then I saw this posted on Timothy Winchester's blog, and I've been listening to a lot of Discworld radio series on BBC Radio Seven 4extra (cringe...), and so inspiration hit.

I would send this over to Mr. Winchester for Wizard Week, but I've had another idea for what to draw for that!
