Now this was a good series i n the beginning, it was a shame it got worse IMO. I love the way that Jack's coat is flowing and showing a darker scene.

I love moleskins. I really should use mine more often. they just make drawing and sketches look so much more beautiful if they're done in a moleskin.

Love the layout of this drawing and the fact it is not drawn on a flat piece of paper really adds on to the feeling of the piece!
You're a great artist! :)

I love his coat here. It looks so... coat-y. :B His hair looks awesome as well! Great job on those. :aww:


What do you think about Torchwood now? :hmm: I liked the episode where the doctor was killed off, but apart from that things are going waaaaay to slow. :( (Still no alien humping :()

Frankly, Miracle Day is a load of bollocks. :bucktooth: After the first episode, I've just used it as a background noise when I'm browsing the internet. I regret nothing.

The shading and attention to detail is magnificent! And I love the composition. The bullet casings are a nice touch and add some movement to the piece as well. Fantastic work!

Are there zombies involved? Have you ever drawn a zombie?

(I assume that everyone else has written everything related to the drawing itself, hence my not-quite-tangentially-related comments :B )

As a matter of fact, in this particular season, people refuse to die even after they've been blown to pieces. :bucktooth: So in a way, there are zombies. Lots of them.

I haven't drawn any zombies, though. :(

Cool pose! I think you did a good job with the gun, with all those little details. From my years of experience watching action movies, I'd say it looks pretty authentic to me! =P

The bullet casings flying out are a nice touch too :)

What a wonderful drawing. I know how hard guns or any kind of weapons are to draw (I'm refering to my I'm-heavily-obsessed-with-FinalFantasy period) but yours looks really natural to the eye. And John Barrowman too. Such a lovely man.

So you got a large Moleskin sketchbook. Is it like... A4 size, or slightly smaller/bigger? Haven't seen anything like it before :) must be a lovely addition to your Moleskin collection.

You want to know spoilers about Torchwood: Miracle Day? I heard a pretty heavy spoiler a little while ago... :paranoid: :whisper: I was quite shocked!

P.S. How I have missed you to pieces ): glad to see you're still active on dA!
