Time really does fly! Hard to believe I’ll be over in the U.K. at the Bristol con in a few short weeks. Besides prints and sketchbooks, I’m bringing along 6 pages of Judge Dredd sequential samples for the 2000ad Editor. ‘Tharg’ sent me a great little script written by Gordon Rennie, called ‘Last Respects’. It has already been published, but I’ve not seen any of it yet.**
This time out I was asked to make the pages “less cartoony” than some of my previous work in Futurequake. So…if my art looks a bit different this time out, that’s probably why. Hopefully I was successful in this. I tried to think more like Cliff Robinson and less like Humberto Ramos on these pages. I also made sure I did some very tight pencils, even though I’m inking these myself. That’s due to the fact that I plan to send these samples to some other publishers who like to keep the penciller and inker work separate, unlike 2000ad.
These are the first 3 pages, and the next 3 are basically a massively crowded gunfight…you know, the fun stuff to draw!!
**( Rest assured, I’ll track it down when I’m over there and compare it to mine!)
