Lionfish, Ink and Digital Colour

I have been planning a new watercolour this week.  It’s of a lionfish.  I started out making a sketch and then developing it in ink as a sort of practice run.

Here’s the lionfish practice…

 

Also this week I’ve been playing with some digital colour using some other ink drawings in my sketchbook…

Original ink…

And with digital colour…

(Ink and colours are my own work but ‘Old Stony Face’ as a character belongs to Rebellion and the brilliant people at 2000AD.)

And last but not least – Gotham City’s moody Bat – 10 min quick ink sketch…

And in digital colour…

  1. Yup, I love that Euro Sci-fi scene too. When I look at what’s available in English I find myself wishing I could speak French and German and cursing my poor facility for languages. Some of the best stuff out there, I can’t read. I especially like Moebius’ art – it’s amazing!

  2. Wow! A fellow Squaxx! Very thrilled indeed! And thank you for the kind words really appreciate it. I have a love of European sci-fi comics, I wish more fans could discover them (hence the purpose of my blog!); there’s some real gems out there. Keep up the great work you’re doing, some great stuff in your blog. 🙂

  3. Cool – I’m a massive 2000AD fan too! As I write I’ve got Prog 2040 right here next to me, ready to read. I just finished this month’s Meg. Dredd Furies, Dominion, Havn and the usuals from MC1 were all great! BTW, I just found your blog – it’s brilliant to see reviews of less main stream and more sci fi and space opera titles – great job!!

  4. Thanks! When I’m painting traditionally I mainly use watercolours, going from light to dark, gradually building up colour depth. However, here, I scanned traditional ink drawings into my PC and then coloured them with Manga Studio 5. 🙂
