IRON

Since I have a few free days, I'm doing what I always do - fiddle about with something that's in my head.

This is IRON, an idea for a short piece set in post-Roman Britain.

I'm somewhat in love with the lines between the letters and the edge of the page,how they kind of cut everything into panels ... :)

Thanks - my thought behind it was of the letters being cast in iron in a casting pit. That's what was in my head anyway :)

Thanks! I'm currently working on a couple of projects - one with a writer and one I'm writing myself, so unfortunately have no additional time!

This looks brilliant! It captures a sword fight so well.

Cheers! I was keen to see if this style could support action scenes. I think my drawings tend to look pretty static, so I'm always looking at trying some way to add dynamism...

I have the same trouble, though I am more dynamic when I cartoon, so I am trying to get some of that 'WHIZZ' into my more realist work. It was a revelation to discover that Frank Bellamy made such extensive use of photo - reference, he was brilliant at creating dynamic action scenes and I had always thought that they were done without much reference. In his only interview he mentioned collecting props, guns, spears, animal skins and posing 'in front of the mirror' then doing a quick sketch - but he never mentioned the photographs or indeed taking 'snapshots' from the TV.

My favorite of his was from a page where Dare's ship has crashed into HQ. They had a huge scale model made of the whole scene and photographed. Look at Hergè too - he had rooms and rooms full of reference.

I have not seen that one, though it sounds more like a Frank Hampson page. I once read that Frank Bellamy did not really adjust well to the Studio set up for Dan Dare as he preferred to work solo and at home. Yes, TINTIN was very well researched and had a studio set-up. They would have a photographer go and travel through the route of each story taking research snaps! On a rare visit to Paris in the mid 80's, I had the good fortune to visit a TinTin Expo, relating to the Destination Moon book, lots of photo-refs on display and a giant model rocket!

I saw a similar Tintin show at the Naval Museum in Greenwich a few years back. Brilliant stuff. The had a full-size, working Shark Submarine that a bunch of French naval Engineers had made.

Gorgeous style and dynamic figure work, very nice job. I would only say that the lettering font is maybe not ideal.

Thanks! You could be right about the font. I wanted just a simple no-frillis comic-style one, but that may not have been the best choice.

Cheers! It's only a few pages long and has no plot, but it's been in my head for a while, so I hope I can get it out now.
