yeah at some point, haven't really done any comic stuff for a while. more in the realm of design.
Hey do you ink traditionally or digital? that wolverine self portrait is pretty wicked.

Sorry man, thought I'd replied to this already.

That's cool, you could post some of that up here too, it'd be good to see.

Inked traditionally and then put the contrast up on photoshop so it'd be easier to colour (putting all the blacks on one layer and colouring the layer underneath).


Now to promote The Fisherman as, with only 2 pages left of Monster to go and Urban Legends falling through (through no fault of the writer or publisher, that's on me), I'll be going back to it soon - which I'm definitely looking forward to!

I think your self-portrait there is the best piece you've done Elliot - kinda reminds me of Jamie McKelvie's work too (which is a good thing)



Also, Elliot has been so prolific that we've had to restart his thread - well done for keeping at it and for anyone who hasn't seen his previous work, here is a link to his last thread: http://forums.millar...lls-art-thread/

Keep up the fantastic work!

Will do, James, cheers!

Thanks!

Yep, 'tis.

I'm really pleased with the Eastwood, enjoying using a brush to ink but it's a little awkward. Might need to start doing my comics on A3.

Cheers, glad you like it, Matt! I'll hopefully have more up soon, though it's annoying that I haven't found time to get more of Monster done.

Cheers, Peter! I'm happy that Eastwood has some out recognisable but still obviously my style - a lot of people seem to like it for that reason, which is great.
