Sinister 6

TLDR- This was fun. Painty painty sinister 6, with lines by the awesome Grant Perkins.

Haven't done one of these up in a while, figured I'd start with Ug. His head is essentially covered with a hoodie, with holes poked out for his eyes and ears. Possibly the worst disguise ever.

Some more work from this little pet project of mine. Some of the little family of Goblins that occupy that dump I posted over at my DevArt page

Trying out some new colouring methods I saw on a livestream the other day

Enjoy :)

Sample Pages

Hey, here's some sample pages I did recently for Marvel. Woot.

Lines by Terry Dodson, unless I'm very much mistaken!

Liquifier, sure I barely know her

So I've been working on this pet project of mine in the evenings, which I'm going to keep MORE OR LESS under wraps until MCM in October when I should have something solid to show for it. I will show this, because it's a match to the technique I used in this and for the same project. So yeah, it's different. Especially if you see the raw pencils/inks. The tool in question is of course the liquify tool, which lets you warp in a much more intuitive and flexible manner than the aul' warp transform. Yes, I'm a bit of a slowpoke to this thing, but LEARNING.

It's doing things I'd never draw, but I love nonetheless. I'm on cs3- are there any wonderfeatures in the later versions I'm missing out on? Or even in this version.
This is still a work in progress. I'm gonan digipaint over it, but it was nice to get a bit more bushwork done.

On second thought, I may be posting more of this as it occurs. The character designs are all done, now onto props and then onto the main event.

Let me know what you guys think ;)

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

Another warmup. This is a great show- one of the few that stays dark and keeps me hooked in. I also like to think of it as a sequel to Malcolm in the Middle, thus making reruns of Malcolm infinitely more enjoyable. Walter White, Breaking Bad.

This morning's warmup. Why a cave? They're easy. Well, not so much that, but I'm trying to tinker with drawing scale, so caves seemed like a good starting point. Inspired by going to see Super 8 last night- some great visuals in that film.

As luck would have it, I'm going to be doing a lot more painty work over the next few weeks, so expect more updates ;)

Alarmingly neglected

I don't update here nearly enough. Usually my first post of call is deviantart, where I recently got a Daily Deviation for this:

But yes, things have been very busy in the world of Ciaran.

Finished up work on DANGER ACADEMY last week, and you're all in for a treat. Great characters, great story, and more colours than you could shake a technicolor stick at. I'll have more info when that's coming out etc later on.

But first, the biggest secret I've never kept is that I'm going to be working on MACGYVER with Tony Lee, Lee David Zlotoff (the show's creator) and Becky Cloonan. There's a powerful combination right there. That's out next year, so keep your eyes peeled.

I've a game coming out closer to halloween, that should be fairly cool too. All my art, allll the timmmeee. Can't wait to get my hands on the final product.

Starting work on SOMETHING ELSE I can't talk about yet, but I'm going to have a blast working on it.

ALSO, in my spare time I've started working on a new pet project of mine, which will be presented as an art book about a world with comic strips about the world as well as production art-esque stuff- essentially like an annual. If you've been following my tweets ( @ciaranlucas) you've probably seen some of the stuff for it already.
Keeping it lighthearted and all ages accessible, really enjoying it so far.
