Near the end of last year I decided to enter the 2000AD Art Stars competition and here’s my final illustration. I really enjoyed painting this character after being a fan for many, many years. There were a number of challenges, but the most difficult one was to represent the character in my own unique way. I also wanted to make sure that my illustration wasn’t too close, in look and feel, to paintings created by artists that I really admire. Turns out, that’s not an easy task but I think I managed to put my stamp on the character and I’m really happy with how it turned out in the end.
