Jingle Hell Rock

Nothing evokes the spirit of the season more than Hellboy beating down a Mecha-Ape.
I hope everyone has a happy holidays--my best wishes to you all!

Bat-er Up!

Another recent commission to share with you all. I really like this piece (of course, I really like all my pieces--I'm that in love with myself) and I like it for a few reasons. First, I like the big black shape that is Batman's cape here--I think it worked pretty well as a graphic. This was the first thing I saw in my head before sketching out the piece. Second, I like the dramatic spotlight lighting on Two-Face. This, no surprise, was the second thing that popped into my head before taking pencil to paper. And lastly, I had a lot of fun inking the entire background in wash. This did not pop into my head until I was almost ready to ink the drawing. I thought it would give the piece a great depth of field and I think it turned out pretty good. As always I really like doing these commissions--they are always a lot of fun. I wish time permitted me to do more.

Dancing with the Stars

I really enjoyed doing this more "reflective" super-hero piece. The request was for a kind of "romantic" image of Invincible and Atom Eve. This was the image that popped into my head right away. I love it when that happens--most of the time it isn't that straight forward. I usually do several sketches before landing on a composition that I like. Anyway, I was really happy with how this turned out. I hope you all like it!

Stars and Stripes Forever

A couple weeks ago I opened my schedule for a pre-Holidays commission special. Here is the first of a handful of commissions I did.
I love the WWII Captain America. I've never understood why Marvel doesn't have an ongoing full blown WWII Cap comic. It would be awesome. You could have co-stars like the Invaders, Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos, etc. But I digress...

After a few posts of cutesy girls I thought I'd follow up with something that's a bit of the polar opposite. And, no, it's not a self-portrait.
I have a couple interesting posts coming up but things have been a bit hectic of late (holidays and all) so it might be a few days before they're up.
Stay tuned!

Lady in Grey

I've always liked this color combination of blond hair against a grey outfit. Ever since I saw Hitchcock dress Kim Novak in that grey suit in Vertigo.

Another splash of color and a cute pin-up girl. Happy Tuesday!
