    Cheers all, you are all very lovely people! :D 

    I love making these things and i'm glad people get a kick out of them :) 

    In lieu of posting another cover, here's a couple of things i put together for Instagram.
    A couple of collages of Bots and Cons i'd used for these covers.

    I think you need to take stock of the importance you place on particular things, chum. And perhaps learn how to talk to other people.

    I've only just discovered this thread (where have I been?!), but I've enjoyed your work immensely.

    It may have been asked before, but is there any chance of a printed book or magazine collating your work?

    Welcome to the thread! Glad you're enjoying these :D 

    And as far as a printed book.....



    This is something i put together last October as a bit of a test. Turned out really nice. Since then I've really improved the quality of the images, massively increasing the resolution and using high-res photos that have been retaken. I've also redone most of the earlier stuff i did as they were much less quality that the stuff i'm doing now.
    Plans are to print up a good few of these as other folks have shown an interest in getting a copy. I'll be heading to TFNation this year so should have a few with me then for drunk robot enthusiasts to have a look at :lol

    Slowed down production of these to a crawl because all free time out of work has been house DIY/painting and my collection/man cave room is still full of furniture so taking photos has become awkward. But I've been slowly working on this and it's starting to come together nicely

    So here's something a bit different...

    Me and @kgorman79 have collaborated to create a fictional comic cover; an alternate version of issue #80. Inspired by my cartoon/MP interpretation of pages from Target: 2006 (see my gif thread for details), the concept was 'what might a comic cover to that look like?'

    So using a frame from this gif...

    [​IMG]

    ...I added some landscape to give us a portrait composition. Kev then worked his comic cover magic, and added some clouds and a cool vortex. I tweaked his final image to blend it all together and Hey Presto!

    No 108. my favourite comic ever!

    Now hurry up with a book I can buy!

    Would really like to see the book you have produced.

    Great work as always, don't listen to the naysayers.

    Cheers :) 

    Yeah, book is slowly coming together, keep getting distracted making new stuff. Should probably focus a bit more and go with what i've got already! :) 

    Just seen that it's been ages since i posted in here. Must do a bit of a catch-up later as i've done loads more.

    No worries on the book, although you know I want one, in your own good time, there is no hurry.

    Keep the good work coming, nice to see the covers slowly getting ticked off. Must admit I had forgotten a few of them.
