Thanks for the kind words...I really appreciate it!

Here's a Swamp Thing I did a few weeks back.

And this is my first commissioned piece of comic art!

Image

It was originally an 8-1/2 x 11 piece done in pencil and ink. If anyone is interested in a commission send me a PM here or at Newsarama. ...Thanks!

Here are a few things I found from an old zip disk. These were done in the early to mid 90's while I was in undergrad. Enjoy!

I just haven't had the motivation to draw lately. I'm hoping I can work out of it and get back in the swing of things!

Really tough to follow the genius of Kirby... I think your next step might be to notice how HE creates depth in his composition by concentrating on the individual graphic identity of each object. Noone has ever given such a sense of sheer mass by having an individual recipe for each part of his drawing while still maintaining the overall lighting and composition. Truly the greatest!

I totally agree. I feel somewhat guilty that I didn't give 110% for this piece. As with most of the topics I crank something out to meet the weekly deadline. I owe it to The King give it my all. I might revisit this when time permits...

Art Group Week 56: Kyle Rayner

I was going to go for the run of the mill pose, but then it hit me...wasn't Kyle a comic book artist there for awhile?

Image

This is him working on my first idea! :p

Now for some art...

Just finished a collaboration with MarkG72 (http://www.myspace.com/markg72) over at Newsarama for this week's topic: Zombified DC Covers!

This one was in the works for awhile, but as usual my slack butt finished it last minute! Here's the first of many "Dead-Dog" collaborations...
