A really quick one today, really busy. From the BBC series of the rescue effort heading out onto the Mediterraenean following the Ethiopian airlines crash. Also wanted to congratulate my brother and his wife after adding Luke Galvin into the mix yesterday evening. Good times ahead.

I sketched this out on Saturday evening, just took a half hour break to finish it off. Bit annoying though, I couldn't find the ref photo again on the web. A cheat aswell, I used some tip-ex/white-out because of the colour of the page, it wasn't exactly the plan when I started out the other night.

Very out of practice, meant to be the Bruce Dern character from the Burbs, just a doodle anyways. From the part of the movie when he runs out onto the street half shaven. One of his many great lines in the movie below...

"Listen up, mister. That piece-of-scum barking rat of yours has just taken his last dump on my lawn. I find one more, just one, I'm gonna catch him and staple his ass shut."

edit: lunchtime update - I added a battered Ray.

Really quick memory sketch from the news after dinner. I tried to put in as little detail as possible, with bugger all strokes, I think it's readable, hopefully??? If you squint maybe? Fun anyway. Time for a pint.

After a hard days' work Coco asleep. Just wanted to see if I could see the colours if I squinted. So if you're lookin at this you should probably squint to get the effect, and pretend it's right behind you, so look at it turn away from it aqnd so on, my cintiq's facing the other way! One flat brush, one layer on ps underneath a really ruff sketch on multiply.
