Enjoy leftovers



These are a couple of card puzzles I did back in the summer for Breygent's SciFi/Horror series.

The one with the werewolf fighting the vampire came from this horrible, horrible B (C?) movie, of whose title escapes me, but the image was iconic in a sense, so I took it. Made a nice sketch card puzzle, horrible movie scene (Yes I watched it. Thank you, Wonders of the Internet).

The other is one that I rather liked how the lightning effect turned out.

The Spider-Man Vault





















Back in the Spring of this year, I inquired to Peter David about participating in a Spider-Man book he was writing, which followed Spidey from his early years at Marvel comics, up through modern times. It sounded like a very cool project, so I submitted some art to be a part of it.





I had two pieces accepted for it, and it's been published by Becker & Mayer!. The book should be coming out in early November of this year. I know Peter was selling copies of them at this table at NYCC, so they may pop up at other cons as well (though we're almost out of con season).

It's a very cool coffee table/collection book. Lots of info on the character of Spider-Man/Peter Parker and his publishing/tv/comics/movie history. There are also a lot of pull out, colelctibl pieces of art, trading cards, and reproductions of memorabilia. My art appears on page 151 of the book.

Keep an eye out for it! I feel very lucky to have been a part of a very cool project. It would make a great Christmas present to the comic book/Spider-Man fan in your life!

Your Own Personal King Kong

My younger brother and I used to watch the original King Kong countless times during summer vacations. It had a huge influence on me as an artist, and as someone who wants to be a movie maker. Kong was larger than life, and at 7 or 8 years old, I found the way they made the movie with all the stop motion astounding. It was fun to draw these cards.

Here are the pencils, and then finished colors for this one. Not a lot of change from beginning to finished card, which is usually a good thing. There are times when I go from pencils to color, that I get surprises at how things turned out, typically through some trick of marker bleed or color interaction. With this one, it was solidly in my head before I started, and that vision stayed with me as it was colored in.

Keep an eye out for Breygent's Classic Vintage Movie Posters Sci-Fi and Horror Collector Cards - Series 2
coming soon. I really enjoyed the work I did on this set.

Let's Play Monster and Servant


Over the next week or two, I will throw up some of the cards I did for Breygent's Classic Vintage Movie Posters Sci-Fi and Horror Collector Cards.

The set was challenging and fun at the same time. With a lot of reference material to choose from, I was able to snatch out bit and pieces of movie posters and add my own take and style onto them.

A couple of the puzzles I did, I'll grab the pencils and do a side by side for them later. I always enjoy being able to go back and look at my roughs, and then comparing it to the finished product.

The Pro Artist Return Cards







These are the three Artist Return Cards I received back from 5Finity, for my work on The Pro sketch card set.

I'm holding onto to these for around 15 days, so if you have an offer that you would like to give me, let me know, and we'll talk price. I will entertain serious offers only, with the card being shipped after payment is received.

Get Right With Colors




Last year, I completed a couple of pieces for a base [sketch]card set for Monsterwax, called "The Art of Fear". This was one of two pieces I'd created for the set; which unfortunately it seems to have been indefinitely delayed. The purpose of the set was to have artists illustrate different phobias or fears, and write some short text to accompany the image. I chose the fear of pool drains, after finding some creepy stories about it. I couldn't find a particular name for this phobia (which is odd, given that that the DSM has a name for just about ANYthing one could fear)

I don't get a chance to post progression pieces much, mainly because I forget to scan roughs or pencils, and just get the finished colors recorded. I like this one, in that I had the idea in my head, did a quick rough of it and then the finished piece didn't deviate greatly from the original. The girl's face I actually took from an image that my brother photographed of my (soon to be) sister-in-law, making screaming faces.

The idea is that the drain, coupled with the water, are actually dragging the girl into it, the bubbles of the water like long fingers, wrapping themselves around her, to pull her body into the vortex. You can see her silent scream, as the air escapes her body to bubble into the water.

The Pro for The Masses


Here is my approved teaser image for 5Finity's sketch card set for The Pro; a card set based off of the graphic novel by Garth Ennis & Amanda Connor.

Info in a couple of places about it:

http://www.5finity.com/Coming_Soon.html

http://www.sculu.com/garth-ennis-the-pro-brings-another-instant-sell-out-sketch-card-set-47091/

If you want to see some other AWESOME examples of the cards being done, head over to

http://www.deviantart.com/

and type in "the pro" in the search field.

I had never read the book until I signed up for this set, and let me tell you, it's hilarious, and Connor's art is awesome. It's a dirty, NSFW super-hero spoof, that actually succeeds in making a valid point about comics, heroes, and the world itself. If you're an adult comic book fan, go grab a copy if you can find it (took me four comic shops, so thank Elite Comics in KS for nabbing me a copy). There is supposed to be a hard cover edition coming out soon, that will partner with this set.

The Policy of Sketch


Link! Zelda was an awesome game, but I don't think I've played any of the newer versions of it. I understand there's another new one for the Wii.

I threw in Wedge Antilles for good measure, although he looks more like Hobbie. Only about five of you reading this may actually know who Hobbie is. Anyway, Wedge is a stud, and always will be.

Hammer pummels Horrible


And these... are not the hammer.

Odd. This one scanned a little washed out. Looks like both characters haven't seen the sun in ages.

Captain Hammer sketch card. More of these Dr. Horrible themed cards to follow for Blue Line Pro's Comics for Cures Cancer Charity Auction (that's a long title).

Walking in Luke's Shoes




Some Star Wars sketch cards. More to follow next week.

As much as I love all things Star Wars, I rarely have the chance to draw stuff from that universe. When I was a wee lad, it was ALL I drew... ALL the time.

Now, I have a couple of projects coming up that actually calls for Star Wars art, so I get to release some of that pent up 10 year old fascination.

Just Can't Get Enough Sketch Cards




More, more, more...

Breygent Golden Age of Comics series.

Look for cards of mine in their upcoming set, and later this week I'll be posting the rest of my Blue Line Pro Cancer charity cards.

Enjoy the Sketch Cards




More sketch cards finished from Breygent's Golden Age of Comics series. I don't know if I'll post all of the ones I did up here, but I'll get most of them. While these have been a blast to draw, they all needed to be full color, so the pencils and plotting was a little time consuming. I'm glad these have shipped out.

Working on a big 11" x 17" charity piece now. Hopefully that will be inked and colored by next week, so I can show it.

Reach Out and Touch Sketch Cards




More scans from the Breygent Golden Age of Comics sketch card project. You can learn more about the set over here:

http://www.breygent.com/comics.htm

I'll be filtering out some more of these cards to show over the next few weeks. These Golden Age characters have been fun to research and draw.

Let's Play Master and Sketch cards...



More Breygent sketch cards for their collection. Miss Victory and Tygra.

Tygra was interesting, because this character (essentially a female Tarzan of sorts) pops up in many forms in these Golden Age comics. Simply change the hair color and Tygra could be Jungle Lil, Princess Pantha, or a number of others. Seems in the 40s, us men may have had a thing for crazy, jungle fighting women.

Super Sketch Card Stylings


I've always wanted to do a series of sketch cards or illustrations based on other people's viewpoint of Superman, most typically being reactions to them being helped by him. The title for this card is actually "The world fell down around us, and then... he was there."

Spidey Sketch Cards to Share


Seriously, I could draw Spider-Man, his universe and supporting characters, everyday, for the rest of my life, and I think be happy with it. Especially Mary Jane. Redheads. yum.

new scanner test


Trying out my new Mustek A3 on some old pages. Me likey.

I've needed a large format scanner for a long time now, and at the price this one was, I couldn't pass it up. Looking at what I've scanned so far, it's a huge bargain, compared to some of its $600+ brethren out there.
