Draw This Again

So deviantART are holding a 'Draw this Again' contest.
The aim is to redraw something old in your gallery to see your improvement.
Needless to say, HOLY CRAP.

This here is a page from my baby. I have worked off and on on this story for a year. It's a story about survivors in the Amazon jungle. I have written the hole book (106 pages) but have yet to dive into the art. This is actually page one.

Big Mike

In absolute seriousness:

When Michael Clarke Duncan passed away last week I was struck with the realisation that I always relied on someday getting a big hug from him.

So anyway I drew this.

Since all the kids are back to school now, I decided to something slightly educational for todays post. Now its been a while since I picked up a history book, so this scene is entirely from memory. Its from the famous battle of Clonskeagh, where Roman general Oliver Cromwell fought the Vikings during the potato famine, just before they joined forces to defeat the Nazis and send them back into space. That's pretty accurate, right?

Also, this Saturday is the Lightning Strike Media Launch! So if you are around town make sure and pop in and check it out, and meet some of the Sketchpaddys!
