Worlds End Graphic Novel Update...

Three pages + a single drawing to go with the layouts…

Hi Guys,

I have just completed the double page spread showing our heroes arriving at Worlds End, which means there are only three more pages plus a new introduction page, which will be a quick page to draw, to complete as layouts before I am able to go back to add the details.

Here is another panel from one of the pages, this time showing Gweldar, the Mathemagician, who looks more than a little troubled. The first is the original blue pencil drawing, the second is the same panel, adjusted, but ready for digitally painting in Photoshop.

Just to remind everyone that the deadline to the “Worlds End” Colouring Book Drawing Competition is nearing.

The deadline for getting finished entries in by is: Tuesday April 14th with the winners being announced on Saturday April 18th.

Until next time have fun!

Hi Nazish,

Great to hear from you.

Thanks for the kind words.

No, this is comic book work for my latest graphic novel, caricatures are when you cartoon-up a real person, which I do on occasions also, but not here with this one.

Yes I love working with blueline pencil, it doesn't smudge the same as regular graphite pencil and also looks so much different too.

The darker pencil look has to be created though, as the finished book is being digitally painted in Photoshop. I'll be adding some painted stuff here on the Blog eventually, but, if you would like to, you can check out the "Worlds End" Gallery over on the Wizards Keep Website.

You will find the Gallery on the left hand panel of the home page, under the Shop section. Just scroll down under the Trade Orders section, past the Blog and you will reach the Gallery.

Inside there you will see pencil pages translated into the graphite look and also some digitally painted pages too.

There are some "Worlds End" products up there for sale too.

Feel free to drop me an email to the website address with any website details where I can check your work out.

Best Wishes,

Hi Nazish,

Thanks for dropping by again and again for your very kind words.

Yes, that's right. I have written Worlds End as well and also done most of the design work, along with all the artwork for the story, so yes it is a big job.

I would like kids of six to be able to pick it up and enjoy it and folks of sixty six and beyond, who still have that child-like spark in them to enjoy the books also.

I suppose time will tell if I achieve this goal.

Thanks for the link to your artwork. Cool cricketers.

Keep up the good work!!!
