I'm not really getting as much time as planned to work on my little project, but here's some concept sketches:

Four old masters, in classic Queen formation. I'm really just looking for a nice face for a lone ancient wise guy so i'm hitting up some variations. Looking at them now, I don't really like the guy on the left so much; the top guy was probably drawn from the court musician in Hero, guy on the left from a villain in an old Shaw Brothers or Five Venoms movie (the same one that was sampled for that crazy Chemical Brothers video? and the fellow on the bottom looks like my favourite wiley old chinese man actor, Kim Chan!.

More Than Meets The Eye

I think sometimes when we're talking about movies we can get carried away in our enthusiasm and it's jarring when we run into the empty and disapproving stares of people who might not be from our demographic. But to reiterate: We are men. Mature men. Mature men who like robots.

It's been almost a month since I last posted anything illustration related. I kind of enjoyed the break since i've been concentrating more on making "finished" drawings rather than doodles and there's a little work that I should probably be scanning up and dropping here. That being said, i'm starting to rear up for some more sketchwork. I'm going to work on a little side project for the next week, so i'll try to post some in progress sketches everyday again. Also if anyone's up for a sketch and a bit o' tipple let me know, i'm so there.

I, Godzilla

Last week I had this odd leathery patch of skin on my neck. I'm sure it was probably just dryness, the hot weather or some physiological sign of the excessive hours i've been working but I'd like to think it was a dormant strain of reptillian DNA, slowly emerging to the forefront.
