When you think of Gargoyles...




...think of me! Hello fans, Leighton Noyes here and this is one of my preliminary character roughs for a new Random House book series called Gargoylz. I snagged this job last week and I'll be starting work on it as soon as the books are written.


Random House wanted lots of loose lines to bring each character to life so I loaded up my dippy pen with ink and got some quick, juicy marks down on the paper.


Further revisions are still needed (very common for me this) with regards to clothes and stuff but I'm nearly there.


And where I say 'Hello fans' above, that's supposed to be read with an appropriate degree of irony. Just thought I'd better clear that up right now. Although my mum thinks I'm brilliant! Thanks mum xx

Thanks Sue, funnily enough I was looking through your portfolio on the site last week as I needed to draw a child and I couldn't get her hair right. So I borrowed some of your ideas and everything looked up!

Very humorous Leighton, and so are these roughs!
By way of IllustrationMundo some time ago I discovered your website, with its brilliant intro!
