Fanny Friday February 6th

Welcome to the first Fanny Friday of February!  

This time we're going with some throwback characters (or current, depending on your perspective, I suppose.) G.I.Joe was one of my favourite cartoons when I was a child. And yes, I still do love it, and still read the comics.  

First up, we're going with one of my favourite Joes - Shipwreck!  He was always a lot of fun.

Some people had a problem with Polly - yeah, he was occasionally annoying.

To his chagrin, I'm sure, I'm posting the grand poobah of the bad guys, second. Cobra Commander - another character that was awesome and terribly enjoyable in his own right. I mean who can put together such a fantastic organization but never win? That takes one heck of a guy.  :)

The Second Fanny Friday of January

Back again with another Fanny Friday posting. A new piece of fan art for a new week. 

This time we're going with a very new character and one that I really like.  The design is pretty wicked so I had to draw her. Coming out of the Spider-Verse it's Spider-Gwen! 
Full colour version created with watercolours and inks on Strathmore Bristol Board stock, measures 3.5"x 2.5" - which coincidentally is trading card sized. She's on eBay:

 The inked version:

Also going up on eBay this week is a Fanny Friday piece from the archive:

The Sensational She-Hulk! And yeah, it's cold, but not that cold around here.

Fanny Friday is Back for 2015!

I know, it's been forever since there was a Fanny Friday posting. Well, I can say for certain that this is now remedied.  Welcome back!

Doing things a little differently this week - first of all - there is a male part to this! Yes, I've drawn Dick! As in Grayson, or Nightwing, or even the very first Robin. He's grown up a bit over the 70 odd years since his creation, hasn't he?  

He's available on eBay by the way (and it's a sketch card):

And then I've drawn Power Girl!  Yes, the original "boob window"  version of her costume and character. She's on a cell, taking a break. But whom could she be texting with?

This lass is also available on eBay as a sketch card:

The Nursery Mural Project

I've been creating a mural. At least part of the time between now and when last I posted, that is.  The mural is for my soon-to-be-born first child!

Needless to say, both my wife and I are incredibly excited about the new addition.  So to channel some of my energy I painted a mural in the nursery.  And now I present it to you from beginning to the end.

Not much to say about this one.

From my sketchbook with ballpoint pen, based on an old publicity photo of the one and only Robin Williams.

Giant Irradiated Panda!

I love Kaiju!  Godzilla remains one of my favourite all-time movie characters, although I've yet to see the new film.

A few of my friends are into film and webseries.  Their company is called Irradiated Panda and it gave me a little nudge for a doodle.  I also love pandas and you so rarely see them upset. Of course, if I woke up expecting to be in my lovely environment and finding myself to be irradiated with planes and helicopters buzzing around my head I'd be pretty grumpy too.  You'll note I kind of expanded on the initial prompt that captured my imagination.

I drew this with a ballpoint pen in my trusty pentel pocket sketchbook. :)
