Knight's, Anya and her Ghost, One Bad-ass Panda and a Silly Kingdom.

So, before I get onto a few ramblings about the stuff I've been keeping myself busy with lately, I think I'll post up a drawing or two since it has been some time since I put anything really worth looking at on these here internets!
(I really am quite pleased with this guy, I'm trying to get back into using my brush pen since I haven't used it for a while.)
I have quite a lot of things that I've been working on the last few weeks that I've been trying to keep somewhat silent, which is why there has been pretty much nothing from me for a while now.
Some of it is getting up to a more presentable stage now so I think I'm going to start uploading and updating things a bit more often starting some time next week.

Just yesterday I got myself to the cinemas to see Kung Fu Panda 2!
The film was great, and I enjoyed it much more than I did the first.
The animation and art were brilliant, and there were some really very funny parts of the film with some excellent action scenes.
Definitely worth a watch if you enjoyed the first film!

I also got a chance to see Rango a little while ago, and my god did I love that film.
I ended up ordering the art book right after and it has now joined my growing collection of amazing books of joy and wonder. (I think I need to get a new book shelf some time soon because It's really starting to overflow a bit now.)

I finally got my hands on Anya's Ghost today!
For those of you who don't know, Anya's Ghost is the first book by the amazing artist Verabee, or Vera Brosgol, who I have been in love with since I saw the Little Big Planet DLC she made.
I have been looking forward to this book for months and I cannot wait to get really stuck in to it!

And last, but definitely not least, I'd just like to bring to attention to anybody who may not already know, but another of my favorite artists Katie Shanahan, also known as KtShy on the Twitters and such, along with her brother ShaggyShan who makes bloody brilliant YouTube videos and has a highly entertaining podcast to go along with them, are trying to raise a little bit of money.
Because they want to publish a most wonderful looking comic called Silly Kingdom!
If you donate to this wonderful cause you even get awesome rewards for the support, including access to a super secret behind the scenes blog that has some amazing samples of the art we can expect to see in the comic!
Want a sample?

As for other stuff, I'll get back to you with that at a later date.

Hopefully with more drawings.
(and maybe even an animation or two)
