Howl on the Moon

Lockjaw of the Inhumans. Who woulda thunk someone woulda commissioned me to draw Lockjaw? I'm glad they did! He's always been this great, and strange, iconic character. A being that could only spring from a great imagination.
Anyway, this was my shot at him--I hope you enjoy it!

This piece brought to mind another animal-centric commission
I did a while back of the Super-Pets!

Pick Your Poison Ivy

This may actually be the first time that I have scanned the line art from a commission before doing the tones (my Indiana Jones/Rocketeer piece withstanding--that was a whole other level of commission). I think this piece is a good illustration of what the tones bring to the drawing. The inked image above, I believe, would stand on it's own as a commission. But I love working with the ink wash/grey tones and I think the bottom piece is richer for it. Just my opinion. That's not to say that adding tones or colors improves any image. There are many pieces that would be ruined by adding tone or color. But, in the case of these commissions, I absolutely draw them with the intention of being toned.
Hope you like!

Emerald City Con Sketches pt 2

Another fun sketch from Emerald City!

Also, for those of you who did not make the show, check out Charlie Chu's pretty slideshow of photos from ECCC. The final is of a drawing of Silver Surfer I was doing during my idle time at the show.

Emerald City Con Sketches

I was very happy, and a little surprised, that someone commissioned me to do a drawing of a character from a book that hasn't even come out yet. Very encouraging! This is Becky from the upcoming THE SIXTH GUN!
As always, Emerald City Comic Con was a great show. It's one of those rare shows nowadays that seems to be about all about the comics. The staff is great and the fans are fantastic! This was my third year and I plan to return again next year! It's kind of like a Northeastern HeroesCon (maybe my favorite show).
