The Eagle has Landed

The first of a few pieces I've been working on recently. This one is the sort of idea you get from reading alternative history SF but actually looks like some concept art for a live action depiction of Bugs and Daffy nemesis Marvin the Martian.

Next week - Elmer Fudd as played by Ed Harris

Armoured Bear: Widescreen edition

Can't seem to stop tinkering with this image. Actually this landscape version (with added Northernlights and ominous arctic resarch centre) was finished pretty much straight after the portrait version I posted last autumn. I just felt my blog was getting a bit bear-centric at the time so held the image back. I've recently submitted it for consideration in Ballistic's Expose 6 book which is being published this year. As it may not make the final print of that I thought I'd let it roam free here. Oh - there's also a version with type and titles and barcodes and all that bookcoverish type stuff as my initial idea was to use it as a mock book cover project - which explains the vast areas of empty nothingness in the design.

Also trawling through internetland the other day I came across this Supergirl poster from 1984. I remember it being outside our local cinema when I was a kid and being quite impressed with it at the time. I haven't seen it again until now but looks like it might have had some influence - unlike the film itself.

Bald Boy

Very quick bit of doodling in Painter using scratchboard tool and chunky oil pastel.
