Sketch Video: Drawing The Hulk!

As videos like this are quite popular, I’ve been toying with doing some recently. So I uploaded this one a while ago, but I was/am dissatisfied with the picture quality—I’m currently stuck with a camera that fares very badly over USB 2.0 in terms of quality & compression. (I do have access to a couple of nice cinema cameras, but honestly, for videos like this it’s better to keep it simple.)

Finally I decided to unleash it anyway… meanwhile, I shall be looking into a better video/camera solution.

Obviously, drawing the Hulk was an easy/lazy topic for me… the Hulk is my default go-to (and Herb Trimpe’s version the Gold Standard). This isn’t necessarily the best version I ever did. But it’s okay. For future vids, I’d like your suggestions, please. Suggest anything! If it isn’t ridiculous or impractical, I might give it a go.

Back To What?!

So I take one of me usual hiatuses, and what happens? The world goes to hell! Oh well. Hence the question—back to what? Not smoking ruins. Not just yet, anyway.

Oh, I didn’t even post the third & fourth episodes of Birmingham Now, did I? Okay…

The Cush

Although this dates from last December, I had been meaning to post it. It’s a portrait of Peter Cushing as he appears in one the later Hammer Frankenstein movies. (I’m not even sure which one, offhand—anyone?)

The Cush

EDIT: It’s from Dracula AD 1972. Thanks, Henry. Why didn’t I know that? I used a photo ref without looking up the source is why!!

Marie Portrait 2019

I’m calling it 2019 because I wanted to revisit a piece I did back in February 2011. I just liked the concept, but the execution was really quite poor—at the time a few people were positive about it, but one person was quite critical… and basically they were right, whatever their motives. It was very amateurish indeed.

Doctor Thirteen

Well… this is not really the place for a debate on the issue, but frankly I’m not at all happy with or impressed by the current incarnation of Ye Doctor in Doctor Who series 11. I feel Jodie Whittaker is hopelessly miscast** and the series has been all-round terrible (with the bizarre exception of Bradley Walsh, I’m shocked to hear myself saying)—and I’m not particularly inclined to watch more of them.

Nonetheless, I did have a go at drawing Jodie as Dockeroo and the result is kinda visually interesting. Or so I think, anyhow. BTW, this artwork is for sale, so feel free to make offers! 🙂
