Yet Another Hammerstein

More Hammerstein coz I love the guy.

A bit of process also. I think I'm going to have to get a copy stand or set something up for photographing images because the ol scanner doesn't seem to cut it for paintings.

My First Comic

The pages bellow are an unashamed copy of The Melting Pot By Eastman, Talbot and Bisley. Mostly Bisley. It is also the first comic I ever finished. I'd had such great plans before I did this (200 page epics that never got further than 3 pages) so at the end of 1996, after having completed my HSC, I locked myself in my room for 2 weeks and finished my first comic. A terribly teenage comic.

This was painted in oil. I'd tried acrylic but I couldn't get the luminosity that my heros seemed to get. At the end I thought bugger luminosity and went back to acrylic.

The image below is in acrylic and another unmasked Bisley copy but 2 years later. I've got better at form and using paint just not at being original.
