The 6th GUN, Part 2

Here's another concept art from THE 6th GUN that I wanted to share with you.
Another scene from the book that may or may not appear, featuring characters who may or may not look like this. I guess you'll just have to wait until Spring '10 to find out!
Stay tuned--more to come!

FINALLY! (The 6th Gun, Part 1)

Those of you that have run into me at shows over the last few months have probably had a glimpse at this image (and a handful more) while for the rest of you this will be new. I have been dying to share this (and over the next week even more images) for about a year now! It was finally announced in San Diego this past week that Cullen Bunn and I will be doing a new book, a FULL COLOR book, for Oni Press. I won't talk to much about plot right now--I'll try to let the art speak for itself. Needless to say, this is sort of a dark epic fantasy set in the Wild West. It's a six-issue mini-series and it'll debut sometime in the spring.
First issue is already penciled and half inked.

It's called THE 6th GUN.

Stay tuned!

Belayed Heroes Sketch

Here's another Heroes Con sketch that almost slipped through the cracks.
Thanks again for sending the scan, Brian!

Grave Robin

I was really happy with the way this one turned out and just happy to even be commissioned to do it (thanks again, Kevin)! This is Earth-2 Robin as he appeared in Justice League #55 (see below). Kevin had run this by me a while back but we'd never gotten around to having me do it so I was really psyched when he came back to me with it. I figure it's probably the only time anyone will ever ask me to draw this incarnation of the character. Again, a whole lot of fun!

Everyday is Thors-day!

I decided to post these two pieces together for obvious reasons. I had two friends each order a commission of Thor recently. One wanted Thor in his new, Coipel-designed, costume and the other one wanted my take on the mythological Thor. I did both these pieces back to back and had a blast with each one! My loyalty keeps swaying back and forth to which one I like best--I hope that says something to how much I liked these. As an added bonus, anyone who knows me knows that I got into comics reading G.I.Joe but it was at a flea market that I was really sucked into the Marvel Universe when I picked up one of Walt Simonson's issues of THOR. So the guy holds a fond place in my heart.

Sister of WhereBlade and WhoBlade

I only just realized this as I was posting this commission, but Witchblade is the character that I've known the least about when asked to do the commission. I hope it doesn't show! I still had a lot of fun doing this--it's not often I get to draw tough, curvy women in tattered clothing. Not a bad way to make a living!

(by the way, I take a lot of pride in coming up with
these really stupid post titles. You're welcome.)

Speedy Commission...That I Took My Time in Doing

Here's a drawing I did of the most recent Speedy of the Teen Titans!
You really can't go wrong with archers. Tell me one comic book archer that sucks. And then you've got the cool hood and everything...very cool all 'round.
