Sorry Danni ....

:D ... The second woman karateist is now added ... I really am being rather brave aren't I?

This one is of the slightly tall and smiley Danni (let me know if I got the spelling right)

here we go ... my life in my hands ...

Well, I taken my life into my own hands by doing the first of the 'wimmin' Karateists at the Karate club when Taylor goes ... ah, well, at least I have a couple of weeks before I'll be there again, plenty of time for it to blow over before she sees me :D (i hope)

here's the lovely Emma! (not sure if I got the belt correct, let me know if it isn't please)

Wanna see some Betelgeusian puppies?

This started off as a wellington boot and it just naturally evolved into this, this was done the same night I drew Andrew ... I've started to colour this little fella up now, but i'll probably only revisit it now and then so don't hold your breath for the coloured version ... unless you want to pay for a nice hires coloured one(?) the same is true of any of the images you see herein, if I still have the hires version and you want it, send money ... I can dream can't I?

Sigh .. the bloke called 'Fonly'

'Fonly I had some money, 'fonly I had left when I saw it going pear shape instead of thinking things will work out ... 'fonly I could win the Lotto ... 'fonly I'd stop saying 'fonly.

Some more sketches ...

Here's a little character I drew the other night while away from t'computer, I don't know who/what/why he exists, he just fell of the end of the pencil ... probably why he's yelling!

I'd better tread carefully! bwuhahahaaa .. cof cof ... gag ... choke ...

Eleventeen feet tall and sword proof!

Alien and friend ...

Dunno their names, but here's a drawing of them made again while at the outlaws .. you can tell I really get into conversation and chit chat while there can't you ...

Beaky, Beaky, woh oh oh Beaky ...

This was an idea for a 3d model I was going (might still decide ) to make for some 3d animation, this was drawn while at the now famous outlaws:

You block head ... er .. and body!

Just a strange quicky while waiting for Shelly to get some stuff done at the salon :-

Can I help you?

Here's a pic of a nice helpful fella, drawn while at the outlaws ... can't remember why i drew him now.

can't get the staff !

This last karate pic for now is Darrell - He is a Brown belt (+ gold tag) and sometimes teaches my Son Taylor at the Karate club ... I drew this while the other instructors were making fun of him :-

Like Father like son ...

Here's Paul, one of Tom's sons, (I've yet to do a drawing of his other son Andrew yet, be warned Andrew ... lol) he is also an instructor at the same Karate club, he's also a comic book artist (no links to any of his work yet tho') and a keep fit n healthy nutter ... sorry Paul!

Scanned again ...

Hey all!

While at Taylor's Karate lesson the last week I drew three of the guys there, firstly, here's Tom, he's the main instructor at the Karate Club:-

Ps: I know I haven't put his white tags on his belt ... as far as I can remember he should have 5 .. oh wait is it 4 white tags on his back belt ... sorry Tom :D

Not got a scanner set up at home yet (thanks to MaFt for scanning that last lot for me) I do have a HP 4P but its about 8 years old and a beast, still works pretty fast and good quality too, but not with my current PC as its old connections don't fit :( anyway for the time being, I thought I'd add a couple of the previously done sketches that i'd coloured up using photoshop ...

My animated short ...

I can't decide whether to go for the guy on the left hand side or something like the one in the middle of the page for my animated short that i will one day get done even if I don't get funding to do it ... which do you think?

I did do a 10 second club entry using a design sorta similar to the guy in the middle ... you can see the clip I did on my site under the animation heading .. can't tell you how I did has voting still hasn't started :( , seems that Rob was snowed under this time ...

Nigel Gruntfuttock and Bert.

Nigel Gruntfuttockwas a name my Dad kept using when talking about silly people when I was a kid ... I've only learnt fairly recently that it was also mentioned in 'the Goon show' and is a character played by Kenneth Williams in 'Round the horne' (thanks Michael) .... anyway ... the guy at the top is my rendition of him and Bert is at the bottom.

Kevin n Charles ...

No, I don't know who they are either .. but i drew them while at the outlaws ... and I don't know how i know their names .. they musta told me.

Kids and Vampires

These are just some kids .. drawn the same time as "NosFart who?" ... my lad was drawing vampires (after I had drawn my version of Nosferatu) he said he wanted more of a kid vampire so i drew one (top right) amongst these other drawings of kids ...

NosFarter who?

Just a couple of guys in this post An Igor type fella and my version of Nosferatu ... completely random, drawn while waiting for Shelly in the salon having summat done ...

Taylor got a yellow belt!

My youngest son (Taylor:6yrs) is a karateist ... he is learning Karate, a little while back we all went to a camp site with the Karate club where we played games into the night with the instructors .. was good fun even for us non-karateists .. anyway ... also on the camp most of the members did their grading, Taylor was a little disappointed because he knew he'd made a couple of mistakes but a few days later he was told that he had passed and got his belt and certificate , On hearing his name called out, he was beaming from ear to ear, the little kid with the big smile in the top left hand corner of this picture is him .. the rest are doodles drawn while at the outlaws.

Starting to add sketches ...

I'm now starting to add sketches, please remember these are mine and I drew them so please don't steal ... like I know that will make any difference :D

By the way, they're all are drawn on A4 paper using a real pencil :D

here goes:-

This first one was drawn while at the outlaws ... Dragon type things are not my usual choice of subject, but for some reason I felt like drawing one while at the outlaws :|
