sPACE wARDEN





New character time!

This guy is a new villain for Astrofunk....can't say too much about him without revealing story elements, other than he's a traffic warden in space - with a gunslingin' twist. Developing this guy's been great fun, especially working on his face..trying to get a stylised version of those Gene Hackman wrinkles, and an evil grin, makes u happy to be sitting at a lightbox :) I find creating the reference sheet really useful, even if u think you've know hot to draw a cowboy or whatever, there's always some little nuance u can find....either that or a completely diferent idea! Working on some colour passes next, so more from this guy soon. Oh, and that Astrofunk 2 cover which i promised....it's a comin!

oooo nice dude. Love the whole spectrum of art that can be done and I've always had a soft spot of this type of style. Sorry I haven't replied to your post on my blog page. I really need to check up on it more often.
