New Commissions

a pair of recent commissions. First, DC comics' Zatanna. The buyer ended up wanting a slightly different pose for her, but i liked this version too much to throw away!

and next is an original character from someone, the name being Great White. I believe he will debut in an online comic soon!

Buffy slays Edward

another piece done for the bendis boards' weekly sketch threads. this one was for buffy the vampire slayer, (link) and in honor of the new twilight movie coming out, i decided to cross them over, as it were. haha

after hearing my wife and her friend and pretty much every other female i know go on about twilight, i decided to have a little fun at the sparkly edward's expense.

Heroes & Villains

first up, a commission of marvel british superheroes, union jack and spitfire. i always liked union jack's costume when i was younger, and spitfire has really become an interesting character in the captain america and captain britain & mi-13 comics.

and secondly, a warmup sketch (finally!) of the villainous evil ex-boyfriends of ramona flowers, matthew patel and lucas lee, from the scott pilgrim series. i can't recommend that series enough!

Reporter Kermit

this was a 30 minute speed drawing i did just now for one of the bendis board's weekly sketch threads (i'm so behind, but the week this was for was your favorite sesame street character: [link]) i always enjoyed the kermit reporter segments on sesame street, and even though i sometimes catch the show with my son these days, i don't think kermit does this segment anymore. ah well.

Batman & Robin

I did this piece as sort of a companion piece to the Joker & Harley Quinn piece I did a ways back.

I don't get to the comic shop as often as I'd like to these days, nor do I read as many singles as I used to, but one series I can't miss is Grant Morrison's Batman & Robin. I based the characters' looks on how they appear in that series, which is loads of fun. I won't spoil the current storyline, but let's just say it's a different sort of Batman in the book.

I've got more Bat-verse pieces in the works, which I'll be posting soon!

Kim Pine & X-23

first up, an x-23 commission. she's wolverine's clone, i believe, and currently a member of x-force. hadn't drawn her before, but she's fun to draw!

and next, after a frustrating day of drawing comics, i needed to blow off some steam and have some fun. it's been awhile since i've done any scott pilgrim art, so i decided to do a shot of scott's first girlfriend/ sex bob-ombdrummer, kim pine. she's known for her shout-out, 'WE ARE SEX-BOB-OMB! ONE TWO THREE FOUR' before rocking out. haha

this one was fun. i'm not ready to quit comics. yet. :-)

Dr. Mrs. The Monarch

in between pages and commissions, i'm trying to work on some new stuff for the upcoming convention season. people seem to dig my venture brothers stuff, so i decided to do another! this time, the sexy and unfortunately vocalized Dr. Mrs. The Monarch/aka Dr. Girlfriend. I'm planning on doing a limited run of prints of this, probably debuting at STAPLE! 2010 in March.

DCU Love

first up is a Green Lantern Kyle Rayner commission I recently finished. Not too familiar with the character outside a couple of Grant Morrison JLA issues, but this was fun to draw!

Next, Supergirl. i drew this piece for fun--i needed a break from standing poses, and i wanted to draw supergirl. haha. i also wanted to stay away from the overly cheesecake versions i see of her so much, and the standard 'flying around' pose she's typically in. DC toned down her look recently, so i wanted to try that look out.

and there's no background because i couldn't think of anything, so there. :-)

Cable & Gambit

Welcome to November! First up is a Cable Commission I recently finished, and after that is a pic of Gambit and some random sketches I did in Manga Studio. I've been using Photoshop to draw comics since 2005 and not had much luck trying out other programs to draw with. But I got a trial version of Manga Studio a ways back and forgot about it. I finally tried it out this weekend and I've got to say--I really like it! Drawing is real easy with the cintiq and it feels more like traditional inking techniques than in photoshop. I've got a ways to go before I add this to my workflow, but I may have to spring for the full version soon.
