Staz, maybe I have no taste but that sounds like a perfect idea story for zarjaz or a summer special! Maybe I will steal it!

There is a touch of Jesus Redondo about the legs, it's good that the image is bringing to mind a fist full of classic artist.

I was reading the 1993 (I think) Judge Dredd yearbook last night and the lead colour Dredd Strip got me thinking. It was competently illustrated and the colouring was fairly nice but it was drawing in colour posing as being fully painted.  I think the fully painted work from the 90’s has a probably slightly undeserved bad reputation. Sure there was a lot of bad stuff and Bisley want to be artist were 2 a penny but there was also a lot of rich, detailed, vibrant and wonderful looking artwork. The problem as I see it is that because when you are presented with fully painted artwork it raises your expectations, it promises something special.  A lot of the artist produced good or proficient if uninspired work, some produced exceptionally good work and some appeared to be completely out of their depth.

I thought as I had just compiled a top 10 Dredd artist list why not compile a top 10 painted strip artist list.

I thought you guys would probably be interested to see this, I layed off mentioning it until I got the ok from Tharg. But since he say's it's fine to say something, the new Gerry Finlay Day strip will be appearing in prog 2011, the 100pp Christmas issue, on sale 15 December 2010, & it's been drawn by yours truely.

I'll be posting an entry on my blog showing the process from script to finished art on a couple of the pages, but for now here's an action shot of ol' Rogue from the strip.



If Cam Kennedy and Jose Ortiz had a love child this is what it would look like! Really good stuff! But I would expect nothing less from you Staz.

Ormston? Really?

I like his weird colour schemes and I like that his artwork was about as chunky as you could get yet still told the story on the page. It looked like he pained all his pages with a house brush but somehow got in all the detail he needed.  For me he stood out amongst the 90’s painted strip artist as being a bit different and a quite interesting after he settled in to his style.

Hard to decide on just 10. Perhaps it’s just because I’m at work but I find myself tempted to make a results spread sheet.

I remember going back to ‘Joovz 'n' the Hood’ several times as a young reader for the artwork (it’s a nice little story in all respects but I was very interested in he art) good compositions and page lay outs an excellent sense of movement and deceptively complicated open line work. The colour didn’t work as well but it’s got it’s nice moments. It has a touch of the Brendan McCarthy and a little Brett Ewins about it. I’m not all that surprised to find out it’s Edmund Bagwell’s work.

I tried to make Nu earth look sickly and otherworldly. I always think of rouge as black and white so adding the colour was the hardest part. Now for the comedy tag line and then it’s ready to post in the competition.

Thank you all very much, I've just started looking around the board and the standard of art is extremely high.

I did consider leaving the bubbles out but Rogue is a man of war not manners. Venus is the first woman i've drawn for ages who doesn't look like a 'docker' acording to my girlfriend.
