Superman!

Superman is one of those characters I have never drawn to my satisfaction.  Every time I attempt to draw the Man o'Steel, my result leaves me feeling "meh".  So, I started this sketch as a Wolverine picture, but it quickly evolved in to Superman.  I am pretty happy with it.

Astonishing Copics

This is my first attempt at using COPIC markers! I talked to an artist at the CowTown Comixfest in Denver about the legendary markers and decided to give them a try. My wife bought me some for Christmas, and this is my first attempt to use them. I LOVE THEM!! I have been doing ink washes for my graytones, however it is hard get consistent values. I think that I will still use ink washes, but I am also going introduce the Copic markers into my arsenal!

Dark Lord of the Sith

I remember as a kid in my Star Wars storybooks, they referred to Darth Vader as a Dark Lord of the Sith; but they never explained what that meant!  It had such a cool air of mystery around it, who where these Sith? Were there more?  Did they all look like him?
Here is a recent commission I did of Mr. Darth "Annie" Vader.  Yes, I do commissions, my prices are $50 for a 9x12 Black and White and $100 for a 11x17 black and white.  Those prices are for one or two characters...more characters, the price is negotiable.

Astonishing process...

This is a promotional piece I am doing for my upcoming book, "Astonishing Adventures". I thought I would show the art as it progressed from pencils, to inks, to grey tones, to final water colors.

Ultimate fan

My biggest fan asked me to recreate the cover to the Ultimate Spider-man Volume 4 trade...so I did. I was never a big fan of how Bagley made Spidey's head and hands SO big; I understand he was trying to make him look younger, but it almost made him look like a 4 year old. Anyway, this is for my biggest fan, who is my son by the way:)

THE MiGHTY VAN HALEN!!!!!


Today Van Halen announce their upcoming tourdates and release the first single off of their new album!!!! Van Halen hasn't released a new album since 1998 (not counting some "meh" songs off of a greatest hits comp). So here is a FLYING Eddie to celebrate. I thought I would dabble in a little feathering for the shading.

New Year New Art!



Hey gang! I thought I would start the year off with a resolution! Since this is the last year we will be on Earth, before the Ultrapocolypse I thought I should go out by being productive!
So, I will try to have a DAILY SKETCH BLOG!!!! I will try to post a new drawing, painting, sketch, or scribble EVERY day, until the Ancient and Unspeakable Ones return and end life as we humans know it.
So, here is a sketch of my new home that I moved into right before Christmas.
