Cyberman Work In Progress...

A few shots of how the Cyberman I did for my San Diego Comic-con promo  before it came about. ( & yeah, for those that sadly miss out on the con, I put the piece up on ebay too. )

Forgot to take pics in the pencil only stage. Here he is, all inked and I've been adding pencil tones.

More pencil and I start with the watercolour washes.

After a lot more layers and washes, I work back into it with a white pen.

How it looks as an original piece of art before I whack it on the computer.

I layer some previously painted textures and such into the image, do a bit of darkening up parts of the armour and highlight a few others. A little lighting for kicks before I add some tonal colour to get the final image that becomes my promo piece for San Diego Comic-Con. Huzzah!

5 Days to Die... with a Cyberman

You will be deleted.

Cyberman without all the text on it. I want to do all the Who villains, old and new versions, one day.

5 Days to Die

I recently did a cover for Andy Schmidt's 5 DAYS TO DIE and right now is apparently a good time to order it and as with all smaller titles, every order counts! Tis a good little book, I've read the first issue and the art suits it perfectly, by the artbot known as "Chee". It's from IDW.

Here's all the info you need, have at thee.
