Absolutely adored Judge Dredd this week - stunning art from Weston, and that panel of Dredd brandishing that big gun saying "Sharks" - just perfect! The story was great fun, and felt like a real throwback to the hey day of the mid 80s. If the story was indeed published during that time, I can totally see Ron Smith on art duties.
Classic Dredd - loved it!

I didn't know this thread existed - really stunning work on show with some brilliant insights on how people have approached these sample strips. I've been toying with having a go at one or two of these myself, but damn... I feel quite "intimidated" by what I've seen..! lol

Su's post on facebook goes as follows...

Official Announcement!!!

Following on from the very successful LawgiverMK4, we are pleased to announce that we are expanding our event!

In short – we have not been granted permission to continue Lawgiver in its current guise as the UKs Only Judge Dredd Convention. For clarity, I have copied and pasted the statement I received from Rebellion in November last year.

“...However due to ongoing developments arising from the Mega City One TV series - and an evolving licensing, consumer products and events strategy for 2018 and onwards - I do need to inform you that this will be the last time that we will be able to grant permission for the Lawgiver festival to run in its current guise. We're wholly aware of the loyal and knowledgeable Judge Dredd fan base our obligations to them, but with the heightened visibility provided by a major broadcast release, our ambition is to build new relationships with partners and venues to develop and deliver more Judge Dredd and 2000 AD events and experiences. Official sanction for events branded as Judge Dredd-related will move to a strictly licensed category, established on a commercial contract basis.”

Comments have been switched off for this post – not for censorship, but so this groups community doesn’t get bogged down in negative speculation. Lawgiver has a hard earned reputation for being a well organised, professional and friendly event and it is important that we continue to uphold this civility and friendly atmosphere going forward.

*steps off soap box*

Therefore, we are very proud to introduce Lawless: A Celebration of British Comics!! Lawless will be held on Saturday 18th May 2019 at the Doubletree by Hilton, Bristol. It will run in the same format as before with guests signings, panels, traders, and small press as well as the usually gatherings afterwards. Cosplay is always welcome as well!

Opening up the event to include British comics gives us the opportunity to tap into the wonderful history of artists and writers who have worked on everything from Tank Girl to The Beano. Naturally we will continue to include Dredd/2000AD as it is such a huge part of the British comic culture and all of our wonderful guests this year have already said they’d love to join us again! We hope to have more guests than ever next year! Tickets will go on sale in January 2019 once we have confirmed the first set of guests and launched the new website. As usual, tickets will be £25 online and £30 on the door.

LawgiverMKIV was a huge success and we’re eager to continue growing and evolving as a comic event.

We do hope you’ll all come and join us next year for Lawless: A Celebration of British Comics!!

Lol, yeah I remember that McMahon thing too - it was in my mind when I was mentioning this, but yeah, from the basic shapes to the finished result would be good.

Pete's blogs on the covers is a great example of what I mean - collected together, along with insights in how an artist draws a character, a panel or a page, would be like the ultimate art bible to me.

Oh I totally get that there's no "uniform" way of doing it, but that's why it appeals to me - different perspectives, different experiences, different tips in drawing along with advice. McMahon suggested (and he wasn't the only one to say this) that if you want to go into comics, don't go to art school. Gibson gave advice on how to depict passages of time, or how to show a fight scene as something fast paced and not using multiple angles, and he also mentioned you need a good eye for design to do well in comics.
I'm just imagining all these tips, experiences and words of advice collected together - it may not all be relevant to everyone, but at least some things could resonate with some people. It's the diversity of these artists and what they've experienced, thus yielding different views and tips, that make this an appealing idea to me.
Perhaps "How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way" was a poor example to use.

Absolutely brilliant weekend - such a great laugh! It definitely could do with an extra day though, which I believe could be on the cards if the next event does well.
It was also wonderful to hear from the artists on the guest panels - invaluable insight for a wanna-be art droid like myself. Listening to the talks from Bisley, Fabry, McMahon, Gibson, Williams, Foster, Austin and Cornwall, hearing their experiences and advice to artists, it got me thinking how brilliant it would be if there was some sort of book made featuring 2000ad artists sharing their experiences, their tips on drawing and their advice - something sort of along the lines of "How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way", but with more about and from the artists themselves - from Ezquerra, McMahon, Gibbons, and their peers through to the artists of today like Flint, McNeil, Goddard, etc.

I dunno, it sounds like a good idea in my head because it's exactly what I need right now...
Just a thought, anyway.

I think James Newell deserves a special mention for keeping the creative fires burning while there's been no competition, with some brilliant, imaginative and humorous artwork - well done, sir!

Yes :)

I'm developing some ideas anyway... The actual final artwork I'll probably start in a few weeks or so.

Best of luck with it!
I really want to make a start myself, but I'm going to be busy with coursework for the next few weeks... :/
