Shin Godzilla by JolyonYates
Shin Godzilla
This was an exercise applying what little I've learned so far in recently purchased digital programs. The buildings were inked in the real world and scanned in, the 'clouds' were photographs of various manipulations of dirt, and the rest was drawn in Manga Studio and coloured in Photoshop. Monster Attack Team wants to print it in issue 12.

THREE NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN p2
Normally boards would include arrows, text and such but these were left without those, and in layers, so they could be used for an animatic.

Boards for the witch movie in development at DFisherhouse Productions (dfisherhouseproductions.com/). Damian Fisher is a special effects artist who has worked on many films with Legacy Effects. Last one of his I saw was THE REVENANT (2015). It was fun working on this project and hopefully it will get finished soon.

I'll load a few pages on here. The whole sequence is up at my site:

I don't have the ink stage for this page, sorry. Did quite a bit on this page though including penciling secondary characters over breakdowns.

Interests
Just sent off the final pages of an 80-page WWE book. The day I finished penciling it the last character drawn was Dusty Rhodes. Then I found out he died. The day I finished inking it the last character done was Hulk Hogan and you can guess what I found out then. Anyway, seems like the book is still going to print, even if it is accursed. Not sure what the title is but apparently Previews has it listed as 'Last Man Standing'.

I did happen to notice you were or are currently working for idwpublishing. I'm nowhere near to being a professional, but, I was wondering if it would be too much to ask for a few pointers?

I understand you're busy and I hope you can get the time of day to at least give me a few tips on how I can improve. Thank you for your time. :)

That's a short question with a lot of answers! Study better artists than me, for starters. Even if you want to draw monsters, drawing and studying real animals (including people), preferably from life, really helps. Having an idea of structure and how muscles interact with bones and flesh can make even the strangest monster look "alive". When I was a kid I wanted to rush to all the fun details but if you look at monsters drawn by top artists that's the last thing they think about.

Ah, mister Yates. I saw in the previews you are going to draw the coming storyline of wwe superstars 'Last Man Standing'. I am very curious and excited! I always hoped they would let you draw the entire thing!
