Judge Dredd 3 – ‘Outgunned’ pencils

Pencils for Judge Dredd-themed artwork, by Roger Mason

This piece of paper has been flapping around in the drawing board vicinity for a few weeks. The judge’s face was originally facing forwards so we would be unable to see her face. It took me some time before I figured out that for me to be interested in taking it further, I would want to see her face, so I turned her head.

Many minutes have been spent on her bum and right leg. This is not a commission, I am just enjoying drawing female judges and am wondering if this is somehow not done to use an existing property on one's blog – because in a way the Dredd tags may bring people to me, so will I get a snotty letter? – plus I'm musing on the fact that once upon a time I would have started inking this by now, rather than writing about it here.

Talking of kapows, another one has come along. Quick plug to say please have a look at this flyer, I will be hosting a life drawing class in Bromley by Bow this Sunday afternoon, mixing observational drawing with cartooning techniques that will help approach the figure and get better results. All are welcome.

Judge Dredd 1

Judge Dredd by Roger Mason

I have been drawing some Dredd-related imagery recently and will be posting it up here over the next few weeks. This week, Dredd sits on his bike gurning. Stay tuned for some deadly-but-slinky female judges.
