Artist | Student | Artisan Crafts
United Kingdom
Name's Elliot (or Ell, up to you) and my goal is to become a successful comic book artist - drawing both my own characters and existing ones for Marvel or my favourite writers. It'd be a dream to work with Mark Millar as he, in my opinion, only works with great artists, so to be considered good enough to work on one of his books would be a huge compliment and a lot of fun.
If you want to collaborate on something either send me a comment/message on here, an e-mail (you can find it at the at the bottom of my Devious Info) or send me a PM/comment on my thread if you're a member on Millarworld: forums.millarworld.tv/index.ph…
Here's my old account, just in case you want to see how I started or find out why I made a new account:

Thanks for looking, comments and critique on any of my art would be great, and thanks in advance for any :+fav:s
Cheers

Current Residence: Dundee
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: Illustration
Personal Quote: Do what you like, like what you do.
Interests
As mentioned in my old account's journal, this is my new DA account that I made for a few reasons. Follow the link to my old page to see why and have a look at some of my older stuff if you're interested:
:iconaspiring-mangaka:

I've got a few things up already, but in the next few weeks very little could appear due to school finishing soon and that has to take top priority. Once it's finished though, expect to see:

A character submission for CLiNT Magazine, a 6 page comic called The Fisherman. Pencils by me, written by Christian Bogetoft and hopefully inked by Andi Sirton.

A few pages of sequentials adapting a scene from Fight Club - for fun, and as a good bit of practice.

Plenty more Millarworld commissions/pin-ups, including:

An inked version of the Hellboy pic I posted plus an inked version of my old 'Ultimate Bad-asses' pic

Coloured versions of the current MW pin-ups I have on here

Judge Dredd vs Schoolboy

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) and the Flash (Barry Allen, I think) vs Sinstro and Zoom.

Character designs for someone else's comic

Zantanna vs Rogue, under a Spanish waterfall with Mary Jane watching on, bemused. (Yeah, seriously! Not sure whether to thank or curse Tim for that one...)

Along with the odd sketch or pin-up that pops into my head, possibly some character designs for my own comics, Stray.

See how it goes, and thanks to any and all that have jumped over form my old profile to the new one - I appreciate it. And also a thank you to any and all that add me to your watch list or add one of my pieces to your favourites. Comments and critiques are more than welcome - encouraged, really.

A NOTE TO ANY INKERS AND COLOURISTS:
Feel free to ink or colour any of the stuff in my gallery, my only requests would be to A) let me know you're doing it B) let me see the finished piece and C) credit my pencils/inks when you post it (be it on here, your own site etc.)
Cheers

No problem, good body of work you're building, man. Good thanks, mostly coursework stuff, but keeping myself busy in and out of Uni. There's a few of us going to set up and comic group were we have our own wee online publishing thing through facebook - so looking forward to getting stuck into that the next couple of weeks. Got a module on comics as part of course this semester, so totally looking forward to that. Yourself? How'd that anthology thing go?

Thank you, yknow just doing bits and pieces, it builds up over time. Ah that sounds cool, wish there were more people in my own course into that sort of thing, fine art and all that.. Yeah I think there's a shop thing you can use with facebook? can't recall how it works.. As I said doing bits and pieces. Couple of longer things nearing completion. Ah the Kickstarter.. we didn't raise the money that time but we're still thinking of going at it again, look at how we can do it for cheaper and using a more localized place for crowd sourcing.
