Dredd by Robert-Shane Dredd by Robert-Shane
It's been a while since I drew Judge Dredd - but @2000AD on twitter is holding a contest - and this is my entry. I drew this pretty quickly - and from memory - so I went for a mix of the comic and movie styles for the costume. (The new movie is excellent by the way - highly recommended!)

I've been concentrating on drawing Star Wars characters recently - but I grew up reading Judge Dredd in 2000AD (the galaxy's greatest comic) and would love to have an opportunity to draw something to appear in it. Who knows - maybe one day!?

Wow, I wish my stuff that I draw quickly and from memory would come out half as well as this. Seriously. The hybrid uniform looks so nice and deliciously sleek. I wanna touch it...

Thanks Naomi. I see you're a big Dredd fan - so I'm pleased you approve of me taking liberties with his sacred costume! :lol:
And don't feel too bad if how you draw doesn't come out how you want it to - yet. I usually feel the same way too - but there's an easy way to get better... just keep drawing! :thumbsup:

Sacred costume to the fans, certainly. Although I reckon changing it towards the 2012 style would reel in the non-initiated, who get turned off by the more garish costume!

I confess that my crime is not drawing enough at the moment. I appreciate your encouragement :)

Very perceptive comment about the costume. I do like the original and can see why they keep it though - it tells you a lot about the character and the society he lives in. Its over-the-top imperialistic, militaristic accessories let you know that the Judges are in charge and they're not trying to be approachable... but it's just so time-consuming to draw! ;)

Yes, all those golden eagles dangling everywhere really shouts "AMERICA! F*** YEAH!" in your face, doesn't it? :) It is a sodding tough one to draw, though.... damn you Ezquerra, damn you! *shakes fist*
