Hey, hey Snafu folks! Thought I'd start a little thread of our stuff in here, hope you folks dig it! I'll be updating with new images every week, but for now, here's a little selection of previous posts to get you started...


Okay, so here we are, the start of the new Studio Blink Twice BIG thread.

We're a UK/France based comics studio currently producing the titles Malcolm Magic and Tusk, and the on-line web story One Night in the City.

Our big, BIG release will be MOON!, a sci-fi-comedy-action-adventure-romance-spce-opera-epic the likes of which has never been seen before!

Hmm...maybe that's a good thing!

So here it begins, the Studio numbers 3, with me on art, my brother Bob on words, and our genius Webmaster General Mark on all things web-and-games based.

New art will be going up every 2-3 days...forever!

Lorenzo!

So, today's offering is a web-only flyer I produced for One Night in the City. Hope you guys dig it.

More tomorrow!

Okay, so I'm gonna try and keep these postings nice and varied, which I hope will keep it all interesting for you folks! Today we've got a little character design I did for the currently-in-production issue 10 of Malcolm Magic. This ole' girl's name is MRS. D.

More tomorrow!

Lorenzo!

Added after 1 minutes:

Okay, so we've had some One Night in the City, a little Malcolm, I know what you're thinking: "Show us some MOON!, man!". Well, okay, as you asked so nice...

Added after 23 seconds:

Here's a style experiment for MOON! I did as part of our buddy Gringo's JAM PAGE. Take part if you want!

And hey, guys, Happy Easter!

Lorenzo!

Added after 36 seconds:

Well, it's Easter Sunday here in the UK, and I hope you're all having a great time wherever you are. As it's a holiday for me, I thought I'd post something a bit different and (hopefully!) a bit special. So here's a pic I did of a Girl. Don't get the chance to do much stuff like this, as I'm always drawing that rabbit or strange aliens! Hoho! Hope some of you like it!

Happy Holidays!

Lorenzo!

Hey Yoshi! No probs, man, I don't expect you have! Hope you dig the stuff, pal!

Okay, so here's another web flyer for One Night in the City. I think this goes a good way to summing up the style, feel and mood I'm trying to get across with the story. Hope you dig, folks!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 28 seconds:

Okay, so I thought I'd post a little piece of concept art from MOON! today. We've got around 300 pages of environment, character and vehicle sketches already in the can for MOON!, so expect to see more stuff like this reeeeeal soon!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 2 minutes:

Well, folks, ole' Lorenzo's off to Edinborougugh-burg in Sc-c-c-cotland to do a few day's sketchin', so as this is the last post for this week, I thought I'd better make it a big one. So here, at a nice size for once, is the cover art for issue 9 of Malcolm Magic, before I cropped it all down and laid on the logo and stuff. Yikes! Ain't nothin' as exhilerating as a little Dragon sledging!!

More on Monday next week, friends!

Lorenzo!

Added after 46 seconds:

So, we've had a bit of Malcolm, time for more MOON! Here's another web flyer! Hooooo-boy! I'm gettin' excited!

Hey Yoshi! Haha! Yeah, man! I do LOVE that colour! Glad you like the lines, pal, gonna stick a load more old posts up now, to give you more of a selection!

A little more One Night in the City today I think...

Image

Added after 36 seconds:

So, the MOON! wheels roll on, and I thought you guys may like to see a few of the smudgey character designs I've been sketching out. Today's is not a primary character, more a broad character feel experiment. Having not had to draw more than a couple of female characters in Malcolm during the entire run so far, it's looking like MOON!'s gonna be awash with "da ladies", as my man Strongbad might say. So, I'd better get scribbling!

Back on Friday, with something of an exciting exclusive!!! Yeah!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 2 minutes:

Okey-dokey! So, as promised, here's the last post of the week from me. A poster we did for the Bristol comics expo (held in two weeks time) here in bear old Bristol. We're good friends with Mike Allwood, the organisor of said show, and his boundless, amazing enthusiasm and energy for this show make it our favorite of the season each year. Anyone fancying coming to check out the show need just follow the link HERE and check out all the great stuff going on. And hey, if you come along, be sure to pop by the Blink Twice stand and say hey, chat about comics, or just check out our stuff!

So why does that bear look so ANGRY...?

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 51 seconds:

Okay, so this week there's gonna be an exciting mixed bag of nuts coming at you guys, with brand spanking new images every day (as usual!). So sit back, relax, and I hope you enjoy the madness!

First up, some more MOON! environmental concept stuff, today in the form of a curious little floating plantation. As ever, there's tons of writing about these strange worlds and their eco-systems by my Brother, Bob, the series creator/writer/all-seeing-eye, but all that will be revealed in the pages of the comic. For now, just check out the scribbles!

More tomorrow, fellow monkeys!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 37 seconds:

More from our on-line webstrory One Night in the City today, folkses...

Image

Added after 35 seconds:

So, the wheels roll on, and Malcolm Magic issue 10 is coming on nicely! Here's a little selection of panals from the pencilling stages, hope you likey!

And, hey, guys, our webmaster general Mark Clements over at KENNEL 17 has just updated the Studio Blink Twice site in a BIG way! Go HERE to check it out! You the man, Marky! Okay, so on with the pics then...

Image

Added after 24 seconds:

Well, it's already Friday here in the UK, and as I sit and watch the sun rise at my window here in the West Wing of Blink Towers, the smell of fresh bakery is wafting up to me, which can only mean one thing; ole Skitty Peebles is here with the fresh bread and cakes delivery for the big ball this weekend. Right! I'm off to nab a couple of Charlie Choc's Famous Twisted Muffins, before Chef puts them away in the larder!

In the meantime, here's another slice o' MOON!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 31 seconds:

So Monday's here, and it's a short one, forum-wise for us this week, as I'll only be posting today and tomorrow, and then I'm off into con prep mode, so all internet-based comms have to cease (I'd never get ANYTHING done!). So, first up, here's a little page from the black and white storyline in Malcolm Magic issue 9. Reggy, Chester and Fikov have been found guilty of detroying half the 'Dale when they crashed through the interdimentional wall from Fuzzton and have been sentanced to work as a touring comedy troupe. Yep. It's THAT kind of comic! Hoho! Let's see how they get on it their big performance at Pratfall's Theatre Bowl......

Image

Added after 33 seconds:

So, this is my last post until next Tuesday due to prep for THE CON, and to make up for this unforgivable lack of The Blink in your lives, we wanted to give you something a bit special to keep you going through the long, lonely nights. It was an organisational nightmare get every body’s agents to agree, and the seating plan changed some 132 times to avoid people fighting/eating the person sitting next to them, but on Sunday we got the whole gang down to the studio and got the shot we were after. So here it is guys…The Class of 2006, the entire Malcolm Magic cast from the first 10 issues, enyoy…

Oh, and that big green and brown guy was a NIGHTMARE! He’d only drink “Special Weserve” Nodsuf Mount BOOM bottled water, and was endlessly complaining about legroom. *sigh* there really is no pleasing some monsters…

Image

Added after 40 seconds:

So, I'm all settled back from the Big Bristol Con, and boy did we have a good time!!! Lots of very exciting new developments in and around the Blink camp, but not alot I can talk about here yet!! So, in the meantime, thanks to all the folks who came along, particularly those who check out our stuff on the forums and made it down for the weekend, very, very cool! I'll let you all know when the con pics are up, but in the meantime, here's some more MOON! fun!

Oh, and it's another short week this week (I know, I know, part timer, right?) so tomorrow I'll have a special treat for you folks as I'm off to the Blink chalet in Morzine, France for the weekend! Wheee!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 2 minutes:

Well, here we are, then, the end of another short week for Lorenzo, so here, in place of my absence, is a mighty FOUR-PAGE post, depicting some of the adventure from issue 9 of Malcolm! Enjoy folks, see you Tuesday when I get back...!

Lorenzo!

Image
Image
Between these two pages another scene takes place, hence the pickup line "Revenge, rasper?" which links nicely from the cut scene, but doesn't make alot of sense here!
Image

Added after 49 seconds:

So, I just got back from an AWESOME time out in Morzine, chilling with my bro, the man behind the creation and writing of all our stories, Robin, or Bob, or whatever you wanna call him. ANYWAYS, we were up in a beautiful chalet a thousand or so feet up, and I must say, all that fresh air's envigorated me no end, so expect an even greater output from the Blink in the coming months! Yeah! Thanks, Bo-bo!

In fact, let's start right now, here's another smudgey-smudgey MOON! character design I produced as part of a sketch battle I was invited to participate in by the boy genius KERON GRANT a while back. More tomorrow, folks!

Lorenzo!

Added after 32 seconds:

Well, today I think it's time for another delve into the dreamy world of One Night in the City. Hope you likey, friends!

Back with more on Friday!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 44 seconds:

Wait though, it's THURSDAY! I never post on Thursdays!!! Ah well, I guess I just can't keep away from this place, huh? Hoho! Okay folks, so, as ever, I try to visually mix it up in this thread, so here, for those pencil lovers out there, is the the final pencils for a little shot of the Gullivan's resplendant abode in Malcolm Magic issue 10!

More tomorrow, guys!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 35 seconds:

At last! Friday! Sweet, sweet, friday! It's a bank holiday here in the UK, which means you won't be seeing ole'Lorenzo back here until Tuesday! Yikes! Hopefully this little slice of web-flyer MOON! fun will keep youse going until then!

Have a great one, folks, see you in three!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 33 seconds:

Okay, guys, so I've got such a lot of stuff backed up to show you guys I think I'm gonna have to post twice today! So here it is, another suitably vague and intriguing pic from the world of MOON! Hoho! Hope you dig, pals!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 49 seconds:

Now, I hope everyone had a super-coolio weekend! Time for a forray into Malcolm Magic agiain this morning I think! Here's a little web-only layup utilising panels and dialogue from the recently released issue 10.

Enjoy, folks! More tomorrow!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 36 seconds:

So, here it is, another shamefully short week for your old pal Lorenzo! Sorry guys! I'm gonna be scampering off to Norfolk for four days to hang in the almighty new Blink Mansion, so I'd better be off! While I'm away, I hope you enjoy checking out this little slice o' MOON! concept work! Cho-choooo!

See you back in here first thing Monday, guys!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 27 seconds:

Well, here we are at the start of another week, a full week for once, so you can expect updates every day except Thursday! Coolio. So, that's enough talk, let's have another slice of Malcolm Magic, huh?

More tomorrow, folks!

Image

Added after 44 seconds:

Another little piece of environmental stuff here, folks, this one's taken from our one-shot Tusk, and shows the floorplan to the Last Mammal Standing Public House...

Image

Added after 33 seconds:

So here we are with another web-flyer I did for MOON! a while back. Hey, that IS a big one....!

Image

Added after 26 seconds:

Sniff! Sniff! Ah! The sweet, sweet smell of Friday! There ain't nothin' like it, folks!! Onwards, onwards! It's time for a hot-off-the-press new MOON! concept sketch, hope you likey, folks!

Have a great weekend, peoples, oh, and there's something REAL fun coming on Monday, so be sure to check back in! Hoho!

Lorenzo!

Image

Added after 30 seconds:

GOOOOOOOOD Morning, peoples!

Well, I promised you something different to start your week, so without any further ado, here's my re-design of Wonder Woman for the Leasean Thomas "Sketch-Off" over at HIS COOL SITE! Hope you likey guys, here's the blurb that I scrawled to go with it...

"This little lady is from waaaaay in the future, where a universe-wide peace treaty has left heroes with little to do in the name of "good". Some have faded into obscurity, others have taken Jobs in bars, but this little lady (with an Eastern European makeover, and a natty line in interchangeable robo-pins!) has carved a niche for herself in the movie industry! With a successful franchise of hit movies behind her, it looks like none can stand in the way of the celluloid legend that is..Vunder Vooman!"

Enjoy, folks!

More, as ever, tomorrow!

Lorenzo!

Hey, Aeris!!! Thanks for the kind words on the art! Not an advert for our site, just posting art for those who dig it! I'll be regularly updating with new images every couple of days!

Darkness-calls! Hoho! Yeah, there IS a lot of orange, huh? Glad you dig, hope you like this week's posts!

Leon! Thanks, man! Glad it made you smile! I made it! Me on art, my brother on words! More soon pal!

Now, following on from a load of PMs and emails to the site asking about colouring, I've produced a little tutorial utilising the Vunder Vooman pic to show just how basic my process really is! Hoho! Hope this is of interest to someone out there!

New images tomorrow, folks!

Hey folks!

Skorrie! Oops! Sorry about your brain, man! I'll try to calm down!

Erix3423! Hoho! I hear you, man, sorry, I just have a lot of fun with this stuff, kinda hard to tone it down, I'll do my best. There, see? I used a full stop! I think I'm improving... Thanks for the kind words on my work too, buddy.

Hey Spike, okay, cool, pal.

Okay, so one of the most enjoyable things about working on MOON! is that there's so much creation involved, it's kinda like having to write your own visual language. Recently I've been doing a load of flora and fauna stuff, ready for some of the more tropical planet environments. Here's one of 'em!

More on Wednesday, folks!

Lorenzo!
