Ahoy there! Couple of small updates, all astrofunk flavoured. Currently in the middle of cleaning up pages 6 and 7 , and working up the next few pages after that...but I wanted to re-work the cover design, and that got me into thinking about getting a pin-up done, one image that kinda showed off the main characters well....so got a couple of designs here that I'm gonna cleanup and probably colour, the one on the right will be first as I've already got that ready for colouring.....the photo was me trying to create a stencil for an astrofunk logo....it went pretty well, that's my second attempt, but could probably do with afew tweaks. More pages of the funk coming soon, adios!

Ok, not really anything to do with sketching in the slightest, but this I'm just a tiny bit excited about this and have had a bundle of requests to get a peek at this picy...so anyways, this is my 13 week old kiddo, currently dancing away in my amazing girlfriends belly.....got this scan on thursday, crazy stuff, looks like their gonna be a dancer, little arms and legs were going crazy. Looking forwards to when the bump is bigger and i can play them lottsa stevie wonder, get it all funked up before it arrives :)

Woo!! Finally got pages 1 to 3 of AstroFunk done, after a big push last night. I'm pretty pleased with the results, and am looking forwards to finishing off this story....i reckon it's probably about 10 to 15 pages max, but there shouldn't be as much of a wait for the rest of it, pages 4 and 5 will be up in just over a week, then the rest should trickle through gradually. I have a couple of other astrofunk flavoured story ideas, so once this one's dun there's plenty more i wanna get straight into.
Anyways, feels good to have some comic stuff dun, i was thinkin' about it recently, and drawing comics is something I've been doing pretty much forever, i mean i was always drawing when i was growing up, but every now and again i would try to draw a short comic, and sticky tape it together to show to my friends. Basically i flippin love comics, and i hope you enjoy astrofunk! :)

Happy years beginningness! Hope you all had a great holiday, i personally was too busy eating and drinking to even think about drawing, so no sketches today :) However i did find time to play a little of my new Wii console, and there's nuthin more fun than creating your mii persona and battering each other at the sports games....so here's a glimpse at my wierd holidays, that's my brother in law, my sister, me, and the missus ( to be ) , who it turns out is an amazing boxer! Unbeatable! ..hopefully i will have a video up here later today or tomorrow of our crazy boxing antics....
ayways, hope your all full of energy for lots of 07 sketching! My first 3 comic pages are so close to being dun that i can taste the finish line...so i hope to have them up this week! Anyways, i'm having a lot of fun doing them, comics rock my wii world. I think i will also stick up a quick guide to what comics i am picking up these days, there's alot of awesome stuff out there that i gots to recommend!
See ya real soon for some Astro Funk action!!
