Well, my first piece of art is up in this post, it's not finished but I'd like you to see the transition, in retrospect I probably should have put it up when it was just in its pencil stage. I was inspired to do this piece after seeing the cover to 2000ad prog 1684, and inspired is what it was in my view, I saw his pose and thought:' huh, I'd like to draw that kind of pose, but in my style' So I did. The only times I really had to look at the cover for reference was for the forearm part of the glove (only because I didn't know exactly what all the details for his costume where) but I did not copy it, I used it for reference, then there was the lawgiver ( again used as reference for some of the minor details, but not copied) and a few ( but not all ) of the shells flying out of the gun, purely because there were about three I couldn't draw and I was worried I was going to mess them up. There are obvious similarities between mine and Cliff Robinson's cover, because I deliberately used the pose and parts of his drawing for reference, but I did it in my style and do not believe I have plagiarised his simply amazing work. Please bear in mind when viewing my art that I am only, well nearing 15, however I would like to be taken seriously; but my art may not be of very high standards compared to some of you viewing this blog. Any feedback would be great as well! Thanks, Will.
