Monkey Island Print

Currently a Work in progress. This isn't a commission. Just something I have done off my own back as I felt a lot of my recent work hasn't been anything I have drawn off my own back from my own fandom.

So here's something I'm doing based on one of my all time favourite computer games.

A long way from finished, due to work commitments.

New Project for release in 2015!

Quite a long time ago, I came up with an idea that I wanted to work as a comic book. I did a fair bit of development on it, which has gradually evolved and incorporated other older ideas of mine, and now I think is the time to get it out there.
It's taking a while to get off the ground as I have been swamped with work and also have Lou Scannon #7 to finish... but I am aiming to launch it next February at the "True Believers" Comic Con in Cheltenham. IF all goes to plan.
I have the main characters nailed down, the first issue storyline is all plotted out. I just need a name for the comic, now is all!
Here's an idea I have been playing around with for a cover to the first issue-

Although I will be inking the pages, I also still want it to keep that dirty look that comes from the pencils. So while it may take longer to colour this, I won't be cleaning up the linework after inking the pages. I will leave the pencils on the page too.
Here is the page before any colour was splashed on-

Part of the reasoning behind doing this was - I want to do it on my own. I know I work with the boys on Lou Scannon... and I absolutely LOVE it...
I want to see if I have what it takes to go it alone. See if I have the metal. The ability. The drive. I think this will be a good test for that.
