I haven’t done much drawing lately but I’ve been watching the 2011 X-men anime and decided to draw Storm’s design, just to beat the art block :) I drew it by hand first, then scanned it into Photoshop and tried some thick lineart as a test. For the colours and the shading, I just used a style that I thought went well with the character and considering I haven’t drawn in a fair few weeks I like the way it’s turned out :)
I’ve been trying to work on my own comic idea but been suffering from art block and idea block, so I decided to do some fanart to get the drawing flowing again. I decided to draw Storm’s design from the 2011 X-Men anime, cos I really like the art style and was good practice for me. Any thoughts?
So I saw The Wolverine last Saturday and thought it was freaking awesome, definitely revealed a different side to the character which I thought was awesome. Mr. Jackman really has brought the character to life and anyone that says differently or the franchise needs rebooting doesn’t know what they’re talking about! Anyway, I wanted to draw a Wolverine picture as haven’t done any fanart in a while now so decided to draw the classic yellow and blue costume for the character. I found a pose in an issue of my X-Men section in my Marvel Fact Files and decided to draw this one, more for practice as well :) I used the shading technique I used for my Red Robin picture that I drew last year, but I think this one came out much better as I knew what I was doing this time haha! It was just a tester to see if I could draw an accurate version of the character in my style and my way of shading. I hated doing it as I thought it was looking worse the more I worked on it, who’d be an artist?!
I’m quite happy with how this character turned out, this is my latest one and I’m starting to get the designs done a little quicker now. Check out his profile below: :)

Bio: He was an original member of the Humanity Survival Council before all this stuff with the human race being wiped out went down, he was against genetic manipulation to stop humans changing into beasts. The council deciding implants and upgrades were the only way to ensure survival of the human race, and after that day, Master left the city and lived in exile until he came across a small girl who had lost her parents to the beast army. He took her under his wing and taught her everything he knew, and the time has come to come out of exile and help the rebels fight for humanity’s survival.
It’s been a while since I’ve uploaded anything for my comic, partly due to work and I couldn’t nail this character at all. This is the fourth attempt at this character, so check out the bio below :

Bio: Her parents were experimented on when she was a child, and was smuggled out by a lonely warrior who trained her in the arts of stealth and swordplay. Currently resides in a secret location away from her home in Talon Valley, and knows Rae as they both had the same master.
So I have been busy with work lately that I haven’t had time to draw much :/ but I’ve been designing my next character and just started to draw her digitally now, so I should have a full colour version done within the next few days I hope :) Her name is Sasha, and is an assassin type character, more info to follow soon
