That Cerebus/Jaka is fantastic.  And the Bacchus!

Few final pictures of me with my nerd friends from (gulp) over 25 years ago...

Absolutely love the Calvin & Hobbes one. I went through a stage at work many many years ago trying to draw/ doodle that lovable duo during tea breaks. I could only dream of getting half as good as that never mind adding in a self portrait.

They are fab! And I too love the C&H one.  Isn’t it great how many forumites seem to have been influenced by a wee lad and his tiger?

You're a talent, Mr. YNWA.  I always thought your brilliant C&H homages were just really clever, very carefully-done, re-workings, but it turns out that's just the tip of the artberg.

Great to see these!  Here's a few examples of a limited amount of old stuff I still have kicking about the place (I did these aged about 17 or so I think).  All done with trusty Rotring pens - which I still love but rarely use these days*.  Not sure why I never got round to finishing some of these; probably just moved on to something else.  I remember recreating some O’Neill Nemesis and some Fabry Slaine but those seem to have vanished; have a few other pieces, mostly copies of stuff by the same few artists - Cam (Rogue), Bryan Talbot (melty-face Gothic Empire Torquemada), Bisley ABCs and some more McCarthy.

* I started doing linocuts about a year ago and I think it's become clear that it's the process of art I like, more than the end result (at least when I'm doing it).  I've spent many hours turning an idea into a doodle into a refined image and then producing a linocut, only to print it and only see the errors, before moving onto the next idea.

Really like your inking Ming. Especially on Torque and that masked fella at the end.

Thanks, Colin - it's a looooong time since I copied anything but I could (maybe) do a slightly better job of it now; these are a bit clunky and the component parts of the images don't flow very well, but as a kid with a set of Rotring pens and no idea what I was doing, they're okay.

Not really considered finishing those off; they're only copies of stuff (stuff I still love, admittedly) and they are what they are, nothing I'm very bothered about seeing finished.

I have a couple of Rogue pieces but they're pretty shonky (and the lighting on the pic doesn't help); here's one:
