I’ve been having a real awful time with comics recently, just the worst. I think I’m in a bit of a creative rut and motivation’s proving difficult. To remind myself why I love them I thought it might be a good idea to work on something I can show off straight away rather than working on something that no one will see for 6-12 months and go stir crazy in the mean time.
I started working on this Chloe Noonan story late last year but put it on the backburner over Christmas and ultimately abandoned it. The major plot point will go into this narrative I’m sort of working on at the moment but as I quite liked these drawings it seemed a shame to put them in the proverbial bin.
It’s nice to see these faces again.
There’s no schedule to this but I’ve got 4 pages drawn so I’ll upload them when I’ve polished them up.
(On a separate note the permission slip thing might not be relevant for 17 year olds, or it might be, I don’t know, so don’t go getting all pedantic on me, internet.)

"Noonan Vs.Pinchy (Skaldjur)”, work in progress, 2010 (l), 2014 (r).

I once made the observation to a friend that as long as your hard drive is in tact, the file isn’t corrupt and you have still have access to the software, digital painting (For me at least) is like an eternally wet canvas, that you could revisit at any moment.  I still have a few incomplete/unfinished images on my hard drive, but I thought that this Chloe Noonan fan art was worth another chance for me to bring the image to completion.

In case you weren’t aware the Chloe Noonan comic by Marc Ellerby, which I first picked up at the MCM Expo back in 2009, is five years old this year. So I thought it was appropriate in a way to rework, update and complete the illustration.

This image will depict a scene from issue #2 of the comic. I thought that I show the compare and contrast of the original (Left) to the updated version (Right).  I definitely needed to change the positioning of Chloe’s left eye and the frame of her glasses, and I particularly like the addition of the freckles and the lines on her plaid shirt.

I now have to work on Pinchy, who never received more than basic colouring…I’ll keep you updated, so stay tuned!

I’m actually blown away how incredible this is.
