Team Dignitas

One more post before I sign off for the weekend. I did this for my friend Dava - AKA Zaccubus from Team Dignitas. He needed a t-shirt design, so I whipped this together. Not sure if they'll use it or not - but I enjoyed making it!

Because it's my birthday tomorrow, here's an early present for y'all - the first colour page of Fixed Up
I'm going to Birmingham Comic Con tomorrow with my very patient girlfriend, and plan to spend my pocket-money on as much comics and toys as possible. You'd never think I was going to be 31 tomorrow would you?
P.S. The sharp-eyed among you will notice I removed all the rude words - they didn't gel with the rest of the pages. So Fixed Up is family friendly. For now. 
P.P.S Don't forget to vote for my t-shirt design on threadless! The Dark Knight... Rises!

Page 9, inks - 'Together Forever'

I know it's been a while since I last posted an inked-page, but I've been distracted by:
  • excellent weather
  • three of four illustration competitions and a couple of wedding invitations to design
  • a pile of new comics
  • my impending 31st birthday and the angst thereof
I promise a colourful bonus page by the end of the week, to celebrate my birthday the long weekend which I have planned.

The Dark Knight... Rises!

There's been another competition which I've been working on, which has kept me away from finishing the colour pages. I had fun working on this, it's for a compeition for design by humans and I can win big bucks. 
The other entries are very serious and Batmany though, so I'm not sure how well I'll do!

Colour me bad

So I've been distracted the past few weeks with other projects, and sickness, and bbqs. 
I plan to post a few more inked pages before the end of the week, and seriously start completing the colour pages.
Below is just a taste of things to come...

The Man of Steel

Sorry for the lack of Fixed Up pages over the last few days, I've been busy making a few wedding invitations for friends. I also made this on the weekend, for a competition:

So the inking and lettering is finally all done! I'll be uploading the rest of the story over the next few weeks, while I start on the colouring! Time to break out the crayons, woo-hoo!

Page 2&3, inks

Here's the double-page-spread for pages 2 and 3. This is gonna look awesome when it's in colour.
Page 4 will follow tomorrow - it's full of text, so I'll need to do a few spell-checks on it first, before releasing it into the wilderness.

Well, this is it - I proudly present the very first inked and lettered page of Fixed Up.
The font used is Silver Age from the excellent
Read, enjoy, and stay-tuned for the next exciting page, in which we return to the 90s. (I'll be uploading the inked-pages for the next few weeks, then I'll start with the colours.)

Page 23, pencils - End of Part One

This is it: the last pencilled page for Part One. On the weekend I'll start uploading the much-anticipated inked pages. Thanks for sticking with me, Fixed-Uppers!
Of course, there's still a few bonus pages, and the cover... but I'm keeping those under wraps for now...
