Squeee, we can finally share this with the world! (well, I’ll post something later to share with the rest of the world who are still asleep, but for now….YOU GUYS, YES, YOU - CHECK THIS OUT! ^_^)
So, myself, Kate Brown and Paul Duffield have been doing a little work with the Tower of London. Yes, the Tower of London! If you’re half as much of a history nerd as we are, you’ll know how exciting that’s been for us. The scaffolding shown in the photo just went up this week. We chose a few key moments/characters from the Tower’s history for the project. Kate and I illustrated and coloured a few scenes each, while Paul pulled it all together and added design elements with the amazing arches. And the Tower have printed them up onto the scaffolding hoarding. Life sized, baby!
(and yes, all you Richard fans, that there is a life-sized Richard III - just for you <3)
The scaffolding will be up for a good few months. So if you’re planning a visit, enjoy! ^_^
Ahhh thanks for posting this, Emma!!! Was a bit worried my Jane would be too pale in that yellow but it don’t look too bad! It’s so nuts to see them at this size, oh my god! We gotta get pix of us gurning away in front of them! I wanna get a pic of me next to Little Richard, I love how you drew him so much, he looks like a beautiful little doll, argh, argh arghakljdaklsjdasd <3 Are you gonna put up your pics as separates? I will if you will!!!!!
This was an amazing project to work on, and we all had a lot of fun researching the little history snippets and working together. I can now tell the difference between all the royal guards!!!!! 8D Thanks so much to Paul for his work on figuring out the printing side of things and Professor Layton-ing them all together like this with such pretty designs. I expect we’ll all be making numerous trips to the TOL in the next six months (UNADULTERATED SHRIEKS OF PURE JOY), so there’s sure to be more pics. As Emma says, if you wanna visit the Tower this summer you should totes get pics of yourselves next to our dudes and ladies and send them to us!!! x
All I can add is that THIS LOOKS LIKE A BOSS! And I can say that legitimately coz I only did the decorative borders, and the real work is all Kate and Emma’s beautiful illustrations :D
YOUNG AVENGERS #6
KIERON GILLEN (W) • KATE BROWN (A) Cover by JAMIE MCKELVIE Wolverine Costume Variant By Mike Del Mundo • Ever wonder what the super hero equivalent of a terrible soul-sucking talent-wasting temp job is? You haven’t? Oh go on. Actually, don’t. We’ve done it for you and written a story about it. This one. • Wonder what Tommy (aka Speed) has been up to? Discover herein. • Wonder why mutant David Alleyne (aka Prodigy) hasn’t been even in the background in any one of the eight thousand X-books? Discover that herein too. • Existential horror turns cosmic horror as something emerges from the shadows of the past. It seems the Young Avengers have yet one more thing to worry about. 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
Aw yes, Speed is back! I’m so happy about this.
Looks like the solicits for #6 are out! And there’s our guest artist, Kate Brown!
Anton Raphael Mengs, Maria-Luisa de Borbon
Who is the artist of this picture. I think it’s amazing and would like to see more
It’s http://cellar-fcp.deviantart.com/ Love their stuff!
Continuing my inking practice stint. A bit of Skyrim fanart of one of my dragonbornses. I’ve never really enjoyed high fantasy before playing Skyrim. It’s just the joy of being a female warrior woman of MIGHT without any of the other characters jaws hitting the floor with exclaimations of “GWHAAA!? You cannot be the Dragonborn, why… why.. you are a female human! IMPOSSIBLE!!” the game is just like, yeah, no one cares. It’s amazing having a whole fantasy world opened up to a woman with no constant cries of disbelief or having to prove anything. It’s just fucking awesome.
Eugene, Rapunzel x (badly coloured..and eugene’s hair is wrong)
Warm-up sketch. Oops, I fell and I wiccan-ed. XD Sketch seemed to morph somehow into @McKelvie’s fab new design of Billy Kaplan, haha.
While I’m on the topic, if you’ve somehow missed the news about Jamie and Kieron’s upcoming Young Avengers title, then feast your eyes on the first three pages ^_^
With the ever-amazing Matt Wilson on colours.
