...now for something completely different

A few months ago I was asked if I fancied doing a Cursed Earth Dredd commission. I sketched it out and then got involved with the other stuff I've been doing lately. Last night I thought I'd start it proper. The idea is that Dredd is fighting off some mutant cave dwellers. I'd really like to concentrate on the lighting with this one, the main source being the flare from the lawgiver. Here's the first part of inking, I've darkenened it just to try and show the pencil marks.

Also, some of you may notice that blackboar.co.uk does not exist anymore, from now on I'll just be using this blog for any announcements etc (which is pretty much what I've been doing for a while anyways).

Cthulu Tales#12 from Boom Studios came out last week, I'm waiting for my comp copies, hope I get em soon.

That's me done, back soon.

Cthulu Tales#12 was a great! Shane and you make a great team.
The Judge is kicking some tail, can't wait to see the finished piece! I AM THE LAW!

Shane and yourself have upped the bar for Cthulhu Tales. Your artwork matched the story perfectly; It reminds me of early years spent studying the illustrations in Fighting Fantasy gamebooks and Gary Chalk stuff. I do like lack of colour, me.

The art of a good Dredd is the chin, and you've certainly delivered that, Dave, in spades.
I haven't managed to grab a copy of Cthulu tales yet, hoping to get one Saturday.
Did you get me E-mail address, cause I'm a bit flummoxed on this here blogging lark?
