Gerard is a model!

One of my blogging buddies, Magyarix, recently made a post on his blog about Gerard and me (The Pen Mover)...he also made a 3d version of Gerard.....That in turn inspired me to make my own 3d model of Gerard (above). I used the open source digital sculpting program called 'Sculptris'. I thought it may be useful to have a 3d model to use as a drawing aid for a possible future Gerard comic suggested (the comic strip) by another blogging buddy Ted Blackman. Take a look at Magyarix's ink/watercolour cartoons...they are fantastic...and why not look at the amazing work of Ted Blackman on his blog Crotchety comics.....I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

IF Shiny (Queen's Jubilee)

                                                                Size: A4
                                                                Media: Pen and Ink
                                                                Pens: Dip Pens
                                                                Gillott 404 / 290

As it was the Queen's Jubilee this week I thought I would take the Illustration Friday theme word 'shiny' and do something patriotic for her. A first for me in the comic strip style...I know.. don't give up your day job!
Three cheers to the 'Baked Bean' and three cheers to all who bothered to come here! Thanks Rod

Edit: (13th June 2012)
I noticed that this cartoon didn't open in lightbox very well so I have disabled view images in lightbox until
I can find a better solution...Now if you click on the comic it will open a window offering you a plus or minus zoom on the cursor..By brings the comic up to a more readable size. If anyone knows a better solution please let me know. (I drew the original on international A4 size and scanned it in at 600 dpi).
