Druidess  This is my final post for a while as I have a lot of work and projects coming up so I’m going to be super busy for a few months. I’ve posted an old piece that I don’t think many people have seen. It’s been great being a Noodler and I look forward to […]

The Dwarf  ‘’This week I’ve decided to post another piece that I did a finished version of that didn’t really show all the detail that I put into it. So here is the original with the detail warts and all. All done in Photoshop.’’

  Speedpaint Batman  ‘This week I’ve decided to post a speedpaint I did of Batman. I have done a slightly more finished piece, but I found the original that was all done in at most an hour. I also didn’t realise I did it so small… about 410×600 pixels which is practically a thumbnail these […]

This week’s Noodle: Overpainting   ‘This week I wanted to show a technique I’ve shown before on my blog, overpainting. Basically what it’s taking a 3D model or scene that has all the content, but not all of the info or design that shows mood, colour,  FX, etc…  It’s a really quick way to see […]

‘This week I’ve finally finished a piece I’ve been meaning to finish for a while. It’s your basic cyber chick that kind of reminds me of a female Metroid slightly. Anyway purpose of this pic was to make the figure still look female despite the armour and also to practice painting glows and stuff.’

So this week it’s: ‘Miss Fortune’  ‘This week I’ve done a heroine, Miss Fortune,  I’ve been working on who is a little bit Indiana Jonesesque. Same era with a bunch of sidekicks which I might post at a later date. Also tried a bit of a Drew Struzan look to it. Done fairly roughly in […]

‘This week I decided to do a fictional poster for a Mexploitation flick called El Bandito. A fallen former priest kicks ass and gets revenge in a small Mexican town… From Padre to puta madre!’

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds The Process

GR_024_618x348

  ‘This week it’s a work in progress piece that kind of shows how I build up my paintings from really rough to refined. Shape, form, colour and lighting are all starting to come together with lots of areas to improve and refine. All done in Photoshop with about 4 hours put in so far.

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds Vamp Chick

GR_023_618x348

This week it’s a pic of a female vampire who has gone to her local Electronica nightclub and has let her hunger get the better of her and I imagine that she maybe regrets it a little… Photoshop, 10-12 hours

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS:Gary Reynolds Moon Knight

GR_022_618x348

This week I decided to do one of my favourite Marvel characters Moon Knight. The comics Bill Sienkiewicz did in the early 80’s blew me away and I found him extremely influential. I also wanted to do a monochrome piece as I was inspired by a lot of Ben Hennessy’s excellent work he’s been doing […]

Just a really quick and rough doodle this week as I didn’t have too much time.

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds Fantasy Art

GR_020_618x348

‘Still have that Game of Thrones monkey on my back and again it’s not literally a person or scene from the series just fantasy art inspired by it!   All done in photoshop with zero reference and took about 12-14 hours.’  

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds ‘Battle Ready’

GR_019_618x348

So this week it’s: Battle ready I’ve been watching and loving Game of Thrones and although this isn’t any actual character from the series it definitely was inspired by that whole vibe. A fairly quick and rough piece (zoom in and you’ll see how rough!) that took about 4 hours or so in Photoshop.  

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds Obi Wan Kenobi

GR_018_618x348

This week I finished a painting I started quite a few years ago, but just left as it didn’t look the way I wanted it to. It’s of Obi Wan Kenobi as portrayed by Alec Guinness. I like how interesting his face was with his wrinkles and zen-like composure and power.   I used reference […]

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds ‘Se7en’

GR_017_618x348

So this week it’s ‘Se7en’.   This week my noodle is from one of my favourite movies, Se7en. Basically I just paused a scene from the movie and then used it as reference and painted the image in Photoshop. It originally looked more like Brad Pitt, but I embellished it a bit more as I […]

IRISH COMIC NOODLERS: Gary Reynolds ‘Logan’

GR_016_618x348

So this week it’s ‘Logan’ A rather messy painterly style that I was hoping in some small way to channel the likes of Bill Sienkiewicz and Kent Williams, both artists whose work I really admire. Painted straight in photoshop, no reference in about 3 hours or so.
