Wayne Nichols Selected Artworks - Spidey, Batman, Gotham Girls etc...


#1

Hi guys,

I’m Wayne. Been working as a comic book and storyboard artist for the past 10 years. Wanted to share some of my artwork here.

I registered my interest the other day for working on the Hit-Girl comic. Every man and his dog seems to have expressed interest though so bit of a crap shoot that one… still, would be fantastic to work on it.

Anyway, my most recent published stuff is Orphan Black: Helsinki for IDW. Issue #5 came out this week.
I’m just starting development on my creator owned comic book series Black Sunday and sharing behind the scenes stuff from it on my Patreon - http://www.patreon.com/WayneNichols

And if what I’ve shared here isn’t enough. Here’s a link to my website (sorely in need of a rejig…soon!) but with tons of hi-res scans of my artwork - http://wnichols.com/

Hope you like! :slight_smile:

Fantastic work!

I knew you’d be a sucker for the Rocket. The Ghost Rider possessed Wolverine sounds like one of my story ideas from high school.


#4

Anybody who can do the Bat and Dreddy that well is okey-doke by me!


#5

Yeah, but it was the Black Widow and Wolverine image that really stood out to me. It carries so much energy, yet is clean and beautiful to look at. Great background - it’s amazing how many artists ignore the backgrounds, and it really hurts their work.

Thanks guys!

Totally agree Jim about backgrounds and environments being key to producing a convincing scene in a comic or a piece of artwork.
They can be time consuming or kind of a bore to draw compared to the figure work, so I kinda get it when artists get lazy with backgrounds…
I like to consider the environment to be another character in a scene and then draw it with as much personality as the figures.

Great stuff Wayne. I’ll echo the other guys that the Dredd/Batman and Black Widow/Wolverine pieces are particularly striking.

Share some more: :smile:

Ok… what else can I share here.

A double splash I drew for the comic Church of Hell. Written by Alan Grant. Covers by Bisley and Fabry. Dream gig that one!


#10

Spidey pinup. I illustrated the linework and colours on all this stuff I’ve posted thus far. I like to colour my own stuff when I can.
