On the third day...

 Last of the robots....

So, before we leave robots et al, let us look at a quick sketch I did for one of the ladies who form the 'real' Manga BoyZ.
Other bits now. First concerning those pesky Goblins. It has come to my attention that the competence of the Goblin medical fraternity is as adequate as our NHS these days. I've remarked before that they not only use what they can get but cannot always tell their left from their right, remarkably rather like me.  Take this 'new' example of a sleeping Goblin.

What!! The file has been removed's a sneaky government cover-up. But his 'friend' has not escaped.
While extensive, and exhaustive searches are made to find this dasterly crime of Goblin sneakery we will take a short break, but don't [or do despair] no rock will be lifted to find the culprit.


  1. That goblin is awesome.

  2. Russ is the Goblin scrawling master!

  3. Thanks guys! But those pesky Gobs have carried of the other picture [or I'm just an idiot .... confusing when de' play with your brainables].

    Will have to be my latest dwarf or zombies next ... now which?

  4. The one and only vote! Zombies it is.

  5. The trilobite-like robot reminds me a bit of the "Cybermats" you illustrated for the 1980 "Doctor Who" game for Games Workshop.

    I've always loved your space drawing - from the days of early White Dwarf and the Traveller adventure "Leviathan" which had some of your spacemen looking out of a gloriously organic starship control room on to a Zhodani cruiser...

    What pens did you use back in the early 80s? Do you use the same type now? I'd love to get your clarity of line (though I won't be competing professionally, don't worry - strictly for my own enjoyment!).

  6. Ah the Doctor Who game .. now what ever happened to that?

    Same goes for that Traveller adventure ... don't suppose you have a scan of the illustration[s] so I could post them ?

    Pens I have used traditional dip pen nibs, and also brush [& ink] but usually then, as now, I use a technical pen of some description. The real problem is surface ... much harder these days to get a comparable drawing surface ... and it does make a difference. Hope that helps :).
