To finish with this week, a few wonderful commissions from a few wonderful comic types…

Nick Percival:

“This was a fun commission to do. Judge Dredd as Obelix. I’m a huge fan of the Asterix & Obelix books. The brief was for a cartoony style and colour palette, so very different from my usual stuff. Acrylic on canvas.”

John McCrea – maker of some wonderful commissions – such as this

Anna Morosova

“Recently completed A3 commission inspired by the infamous ‘walking scene’ from “The Right Stuff” as requested by Mark Spencer. Pictured – 2000AD’s Karyn, DeMarco, Anderson, Hershey and McGruder.”

Kyle Hotz – The Spectre

Vlad Legostaev – X-Force

And finally – a rather spectacular commission from Duncan Fegredo from 2021:

“I don’t normally do commissions but then the last year has hardly been normal. Based on Neil Gaiman’s Sandman: Brief Lives, final art is acrylic gouache, 20×30 inches. I doubt I’ll ever do anything like this again, don’t ask!”

Rough pencils, tonal block in, colour test, and the finished work…
