So Dave, any hints at your technique? Clearly it looks like you start off with a strong pencil drawing, do you then scan it and tweak in Photoshop or Illustrator? I really like your use of color and of course, your subject matter is fab!

Yeah, I start off drawing it with good old papaer and pencil, then I go over the lines with a black pen and rub out the original pencil lines. I then scan it and colour it in Paint Shop Pro (I really ought to learn how use Photoshop, but I was given Paint by a friend at university and just for ease I continue to use it). However, that is also why I haven't uploaded much recently; having moved house not long ago, I have yet to set up my old PC, whci is where that programme is located! So I have a pile of pictures all waiting to be coloured!
I'm going on holiday for two weeks tomorrow, but when I return I shall set up the PC and get colouring! I really ought to find a way of taking it off the old one and puuting it on my new PC, but I've never been that techno savvy!!
Glad you like my subject matter!

I really have to/want to learn the esoteric art of inking. In February I went to a local (Tucson, Arizona, not my real hometown) comicbook shop where a character designer from the Simpsons did an instore appearance and did simpsonized portraits of folks for a fee. He laid it out with a non-repro blue pencil and went over it with sharpies and those micron disposable technical pens. It's great seeing anybody else in action. I then scanned it in and had to complete all the lines so I could fill it in in Photoshop, but I have yet to do that with my own stuff. I really should...
