A Fistfull of sketches

I've started the pencilling stage of issue 3 of 6 MONTHS. All the layouts are done and I've been sketching away at certain panels, trying to find what works and what doesn't.
I do dozens of rough sketches.
Once I find what I like, I'll get the old Light box out and refine the pencils.
But I thought I show you lot, a few of those pencil sketches.
Some will make into the final stage, while I may use a variation of others.
Sometimes it clicks straight away and a panel will work with no or little fiddling about.
While others, if I can't get it to work I'll start from scratch.

Carter's Column

After a couple week hiatus, Carter's Column, the weekly strip at starts again this week, just as I've completed the final pencilled episode. Hurrah.
Obviously I can't show that page'll ruin the whole plot, but here is the pencils of this weeks episode.
Pop over to speech balloons to see it in colour and all the funny words added.

Wolfmen 2

This is the pencilled sketch (but I will ink it later) of a pinup done for Dave West and Andy Bloor's excellent Wolfmen 2 book, hopefully out later this year.
I feel privilaged that they asked me to contribute.
I only hope I done the lads proud.

Cross Hatchin' Frenzy

After the "clean" art of 6 Months I wanted to do something a bit looser, so while I've taken a week's break from the graphic novel (but I'll be back on it from next week) , I had a moment of madness and did these.

And now we rest...for a bit.

Finally finished the 2nd issue of 6 Months (hurrah).
Decided to have a break for a week afore I start issue 3.
It'll give me time to finish off a few other projects that I had to put on hold.
so a few more pages for y'all to have a look at.
