Manga Jiman Contest

My current project, (unrelated to college work) is an entry into the 'Manga Jiman' contest run by the Japanese embassy. The work will be a comic at 8 pages long, and will be set in a futuristic, sci-fi universe. The work will be produced on Adobe Photoshop.
I can't give away much more at the moment - but here are some preview sketches!
For this project, I'm having to learn how to screen tone digitally - something I'm yet to do, so that will be hard work! I have written comics in the past, but they didn't turn out well, so I'm really nervous!

Other than that, I have done the following commissions, all drawn in photoshop:

I've been experimenting with some silly chibi styles and found a favourite-this!
Isn't he cute? I love him! He's more 'cartoony' than I would normally go for, but I actually quite like that! Drawn in Photoshop with a tablet.
He was inspired by the Japanese artist H I D E O who draws beautiful illustrations! 

That's all from me this holiday! I hope to upload more work soon.
