Hi Chaps (and chapesses...possibly) Here's the finished page for all to see. You will notice a few changes here and there, which were not on the initial pencil rough. I try to fill as much of the panel as possible even if I know it may be covered by a speech bubble. I'm going to be putting a load of stuff on ebay over the next few weeks. Under 'David Hitchcock' so try and get over there (sorry, UK only for the ebay stuff)
all the best,

I recently started a fairly lengthy gn for Scar Comics/Bigger Pictures, written by screen writer Gary Young-- with the aim that it will be used as a tool to promote it as a movie. It's called MADAM SAMURAI, the tale is set in victorian London at the time of the notorious Ripper murders. What's the oriental connection you may ask? How the heck should I know, I just draw the pictures ;) No seriously, it's a great tale and one that has a great 'feel' about it.
I plan on doing a bit of a 'diary' type thing, the 'production of a graphic novel' if you will. Let me know if you would be interested in seeing it make progress, and I'll make every effort to update with interesting stuff like sketches, snippets, notes etc which you won't see elsewhere.
On this post I thought it would be good to show the THUMBNAIL---which is done on A4 and gives me the general layout of the page. The A3 size original pencils--- using the thumbnail arrangement I can then adjust various angles, panels to make better use of the page. I'll finish this page tomorrow and post it on Monday. This is, of course, no different from how I imagine any other artist to work (but it gives you a chance to see some scribbling)
For those who never got round to getting a copy of GOTHIC, I posted the first story here.... sorry, you'll have to fill in stuff to view it but it won't take long.
Bye for now..

Werewolves/ wolfmen are difficult to draw
Hello all, I've recently realised the above as I've just done a pin-up image for the upcoming Accent UK title Wolfmen2. I take my hat off to Andy Bloor, who has the task of drawing LOADS of em...one was enough for me (well, four actually) see, one slight hair out of place, and your wolf looks like a dog! See first aborted attempt. Finished one shown above

That's me done for now,
