I’ve been posting primarily to IG & Twitter but I didn’t want to leave my longtime blogosphere people out. So, I thought I’d post some highlights here. I hope everyone is safe and well during this pandemic. Also, you can still pickup a free digital of Pablo the Gorilla at AltFCD or Alt-Free Comic Day until the end of today. If you enjoy it, don’t forget to nominate it for the Ringo Awards at Ringoawards.com for all applicable categories!
Now for some original art!
Did this pinup for the San Diego Comic-Con souvenir book submission. I went a bit Miami Vice/ 80s pastel for the palette. I did this because usually when you see Conan images, very warm tones are employed. I imagined the scene to happen on a giant outcropping of tourmaline. I had been inspired by crystal’s look on a recent Natural History Museum visit. This is one if my favorite recent pieces I did. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it!
A reverse look at my sketch I’m doing for reward fulfillment on the Pablo the Gorilla Kickstarter.
Here’s some flat work on Pablo’s first comic book cover. Can’t wait for you to see how vastly different the final image is from this flatted piece. Almost finished and off to color the comic and start concept and character designs on the next project 😉
I have a few things to tackle and one of them is color palette. I’d like to go for a blocky, muted, almost monochromatic look for every page. I’ve been inspired by Jordie Bellaire’s and Matt Hollingsworth’s work. Pretty much a lot of Image books are influencing my artistic choices. Here’s a test.
Are you watching the Superbowl? No? Click here to watch a timelapse of the Hulk being drawn, inked and colored instead. Today’s warmup piece.
Inspired by the end credits. Watch a timelapse of this being made. Took almost 7 minutes on my phone.
Awhile back I shared this drawing of Apocalypse. Today I posted a timelapse video of the inking and coloring of it. Click here to see it!
I hope you guys have been enjoying these videos and that maybe it helps with your creative process.
Happy New Year! I dug last night’s sketch so I finalized it.
So I just went ahead and finished it.
