Have a swingin' Christmas! (In October???)

I know it's only October, but I have started on Christmas images for CILM and another outlet. I can't say anything until next week because I am still setting things up and doing a quality check but if all goes well, you will be able to order prints of a lot of my work. Island Girls anyone??? This piece was done in watercolor and some color pencil on 10" x 15" Canson Cold Press 140lb Watercolor paper. I am going to add a digital background for the final piece. Tomorrow I will show the before and after on another piece I am working on. Also the Christmas images could be available for Christmas cards if all goes well. More later.

Christmas came early because some of the Conventionless Convention Sketches are not going to be posted. The requests were a little too risque for posting without an adults-only tag and I don't want to do that. I still have a nice Valerie from Josie and the Pussycats coming up that I will post when finished. :)

I've also started on a 12" x 48" painting on canvas. Island Girl/Tiki themed. I think I posted the roughs a few months ago here on the blog. I will photograph the progress on that and share when I get farther along. Also going to be starting on a 16" x 20" Space Ghost and crew painted commission. That will be fun! 
Today's Legion couple is Wildfire (Drake Burroughs) and Dawnstar. The background reflects the story that Dawnstar first appeared in and features the Resource Raiders space ships. Wildfire was extremely popular as soon as he first appeared. If they did things back then like they do now, he would have guest stared in every comic DC publishes and had at least two series of his own. He would have been DC's Wolverine. Dawny was introduced as the Legion's first Native American but she was from another planet. See, all the Native Americans left Earth at some point and colonized Starhaven. And because she was of Native American decent, she was a tracker. :) Both characters are favorites of mine. This piece was done in ink, watercolor, and gouache on 11" x 17" illustration board.
