Sketchy Doodles

Scarlett from Gi Joe.. I did a quick layout for Scarlett and then took 2 months to finish it.. It really doesn't look much like her.. I'll give it another go in the future.

And here is my very "bright" version of black cat.. I might fill in some black on her one day..

Character Sketches

I've been working on a 9 page preview for a proposal I'm doing with a writer. I got the thumbnail for the comic finished, and then realized I should actually design the characters.

Hopefully the pictures speak for themselves.

Redeemer Character Designs

I'm still working on the sequential pages, but I took some time to flesh out the look and feel of the two main characters.

Lots of design ideas and coaching from John Christopher.

Orion Quick Sketch

I did this Orion sketch upon request. It went in the back of a sketchbook I sold. (Thanks Jerry).
Absolutely my first time drawing a New God. Luckily I had just saw an episode of Justice League with Orion in it, so I had some understanding of the character.

Cyborg- DC card art

I can finally add this piece that I did quite a few months ago. My studio mate Tom Feiser hooked me up with this. They needed the image ASAP, and I knocked out this baby overnight. I did the whole shebang: pencils, inks and colors.

Card Commission

Wow.. It's been over a month since I last posted.. I have been drawing-quite a lot. And that's the reason that I haven't had time to post. I have some stuff I'm itching to share, but alas, I signed some silly contracts with some non-disclosure clauses in them.

But.. I've got a great opportunity to do some sketch cards for Michael DiBenedetto. Here are the cards in the sketch phase.. keep posted for the finals- coming soon.

New commission

I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Baltimore. Along with the convention, I took some time to visit family.

I got a chance to do a fun commission for Bill Nolan. It was a pic of Captain Marvel, and I threw in Billy Batson to add some fun to the piece. (I've swiped this image from Bills comicartsfan page, but I don't think he'll mind)

The gang is all here: Marvel Masterpieces

Sketch cards for Upper Deck.. My approach changed quite a bit as I got deeper thru the stack, and I ended up doing the latter cards with marker.. And then I went back and added marker to the first one's I did. I definitely loosened up as I progressed thru the cards.. It was a fun project.

More sketches

One is a test image I did using watercolor.. I had to gear up for 19 portrait images I'm doing for an RPG right now.. I wanted to work out a, somewhat, consistent approach to the series. I've done OK so far, but some pictures beg for a slightly different treatment.. I'll actually be repainting one, just to match it with the style of the others.. That's always been one of my challenges.. Stylistic consistency.

Obi and Sidious

This piece actually came out better than I expected. Simple concept. Obi-wan( younger version) Vs. Sidious. The picture became a little more fun when I got really sloppy with it.

Galaxy Rangers

Blast from the past.. I barely remember the cartoon, but I love the 80's throwback animation. I also wanted to draw horses- or horselike creatures at least. I had some dilemma with how much shadowing to put on the faces. I didn't want to cop out and leave it for the tones. But.. I'm not happy with the whole piece but at least I made some mistakes to avoid next time. About the crappy hatching in the BG.. Well, I was using a suspect Pen-Brush and I had to hurry and get this one wrapped up on my lunch break..

Hot Fuzz

Love the movie. I've been itching to draw something that required a likeness in it too. The likenesses are meh.. but I don't think they're way off. Man I gotta learn how to draw stones better.. Back to the sketchbook.

Thor's mighty hammer.

Trying to do this sketch a day.. whew.. I got the most recent Thor with Copiel on pencils and Laura Martin doing colors.. What a pretty book-hopefully the quality maintain for some time.. I'm afraid they'll change teams and give us a C-class book pretty soon. But right now, I'm enjoying the visuals..

I love Copiel's redesign of Thor.. It's just right.. I even like the really squat face he's giving him; he's doesn't have a cookie cutter "hero" face you're used to seeing in comics a'la Jim Lee and co. ( not that I'm hating on Jim. His stuff is fun, but all of the characters have that feeling of sameness)

Anyway here's my take on Thor.. I really don't like his bottom half, and his face looks slightly geriatric, but for me that's what a daily sketch is about, taking chances and doing something different. As you can see I also wanted to draw trees. So I did. Even though they are blob trees.

The Proposal.

What if.. Ms.Majesty were approached by Captain Danger.. In a bar... ( the names of the actual superheroes have been altered to protect their privacy).

Supes- lotsa lines.

Another experimental One.. I plan on putting colors to this soon..


An experimental spectre illustration.. I went at this with no end in mind.. I wanted to see if I could color an image rendered in pencil. Here are the results.

Red Sonja

Been thinking about doing a Red Sonja pic for a while. I get inspired by all of the new Sonja cover that come out thru the Sonja comic from Dynamite Entertainment.

Just a morning sketch. Quick and fun.
