Holmes and Challenger by JolyonYates
Holmes and Challenger
Cover for the December issue of 'Weng's Chop', containing Stephen Bissette's article on the history of Sherlock Holmes/Professor Challenger/Martians stories. I wanted to combine the features of several Holmes but he came out as kind-of Peter Cushing

G-Fantis vs Gargantua by JolyonYates
G-Fantis vs Gargantua
Illustration for the Skip Peel story in the latest 'G-Fan'. This issue features a Bob Eggleton cover and full page art by Frank Parr and Chris Scalf! No Matt Frank art, but he did get a letter in there.

This picture was done with inks and screentone.

Monster! zombie special cover by JolyonYates
Monster! zombie special cover
Wormface from ZOMBI 2 sitting for a formal portrait. I like the textures of the zombies from this film so it was an excuse to play around with inking. The background is a photograph of a baking tray with gradients Photoshopped over it.

Monster! issue 21 cover by JolyonYates
Monster! issue 21 cover
The cover article this issue is on Indonesian horror films. The editors asked for a monochromatic close-up of a pocong, a living corpse wrapped in a shroud so it has to hop to get around. This should be available in late September 2015. Ink, screentone, Photoshop hues.

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!

You read that in 'Previews'? 

I just finished sending the last page today. Working on the cover. I didn't know the title was 'Last Man Standing'! With this publisher, I am always the last to know.

Haha. Their paperbacks are also kind of weird. They sometimes use old art and on the other hand they don't use gems like your promotional poster for the nyccc 2014. But I'm glad you confirm that you're actually drawing the comic. I'm looking forward to it!
