Dev-Con 2016 Sketches

Some sketches from the Dev-Con Plymouth Comic Convention earlier on today:

First up, two from Celtic Fenian Mythology. First; Sabh, a naughty wizard, her doe form, Fionn, and definitely not a wi-fi symbol. (Turns out celtic knotwork can look too simplistic if you take plain elements and then crop them too much. Anyway, knotwork was a bit more a monastic thing, so I need to harken back to simple knotwork-like motifs carved in stone more.)

Second, fiery Tuatha De Danaan fairy Aileen and Fionn. The idea is that the Tuath’ are definitely not elves with pointy ears and spindly bodies – because that would be predictable and lame – but impossibly beautiful and perfect beings where the guys look as gorgeous as the girls and the girls look as powerful as the guys. Kind of like a race of supermodels. I think I need to put a bit more work into fleshing this particular idea out though; we’re winning in the unsettling, asexual disco-diva look stakes, but it needs a little something more too…

Tank Girl!

Boba Fett from the old Star Wars films! I really should reference this guy properly at some point! Visual memory of Cam Kennedy‘s Dark Empire comics art is not enough!

Wonder Woman, who seemingly still isn’t allowed to wear trousers. Somehow. Hope you like that battle swimsuit you seem to be stuck in, you symbol of female emancipation. (I wonder if a male audience and male creative teams might have something to do with this..?) Anyway, I gave her a nice skirt.

Wolverine, drawn with copious photo reference of Hugh Jackman! That Hugh!
