Gold Key Comic inspiration

I've been getting a lot of encouragement to draw more comics lately (Bear comics in particular) and I want to give it another go.

I drew a lot of inspiration from Gold Key children's comics released in the 1960's which published a lot of comics based on popular television cartoon characters of the time (Flintstones, Hong Kong Phooey etc) So I wanted to go for a bit of a retro look:

I've been a bit busy lately but I've had the time to try revisiting one of my older characters I made during my southampton days. I've always wanted to try making a story about a little knight fighting monsters. Its mostly inspired from The Legend of Zelda and Noggin the Nog.
Theres no real reason as to why he wears an apple on his head, I was just trying to think of something slightly unusual to look at.

Frog Project

I'd like to make this into a four page comic sometime this year. Pretty good little goal to aim for at least.

Treasure Hound

So whenever I have a bit of free time, I like to draw a new page for my little adventure story, its based on the cartoons, movies & videogames I grew up with. Its currently 14 pages long- maybe I'll see it through to the end?
