Ms. Marvel

This is something I did at MegaCon in between sketch requests. I had posted on Twitter that I was bored and asked what should I draw. Though I got more than a few ideas tossed at me, Bob Greenberger suggested the new Ms. Marvel for something different. I liked it and ran with it. Later in the show I started adding some color with Copic Markers.

Mary Marvel

Things have been a bit hectic around here. I am hip deep in work and also Chapter 3 of Perils On Planet X. But then along comes Mary. She doesn't care how busy I am. She just wants me to draw her. :)

I based this on the version of Mary as done by Bob Oksner. And she is for sale. Just click on the "Art for Sale" tab at the top.

I think I will be trying to post here on Tuesdays from now on. With the 2-Pt Perspective blog posts on Thursday, it makes it a bit harder to do two posts in a day. Hard to believe I used to do this everyday and twice on Thursdays. Whew.

Here is another head shot, this time of Supergirl. I did this on 8.5" x 11" Strathmore Drawing Paper using ink and Copic Markers. As usual these days, I will be posting it on eBay tonight. Updated link to follow later. :)

UPDATE: Auction link

Secret Avengers - Sketch Cover

Squeezed in another sketch cover in between my advance sketches for HeroesCon. I will be putting this  up on eBay later tonight.

Speaking of HeroesCon, it's coming up really fast. Next week at this time I should be almost halfway there. Driving takes a bit of time but it means I can bring as much as I want and not deal with air travel restrictions. And the groping that goes with it.

I am down to my last two HeroesCon advance sketches. I have time to add a few more so if you or someone you know would like a sketch from me just let me know. I will be starting a new list at the show so there is always that option. Details are here for the advance sketch list.

Art was created with ink, Copic marker and acrylic on official Marvel sketch cover stock.

Dawnstar - Legion of Super-Heroes Five Years Later

It's gonna be a Legion of Super-Heroes week as I finish up the long awaited Five Years Later commissions for Michael. Today it's Dawnstar. She no longer had her wings during the FYL storyline but I wanted to represent what she once had so I did a ghost image of the wings with gray Copic markers. I like how it turned out. Thanks again Michael!

I just got the approval to share these sketch cards I did for Cryptozoic Entertainment. These were fun to do and George at Cryptozoic is incredibly nice to work with.

These were done in ink and Copic markers.

Catwoman, 1968

Since Catwoman has been around so long, dressed in clothing that fits the time period (for the most part) it was hard to do a piece that wasn't completely different. Right off the bat (no pun intended) the Catwoman costume from the Batman TV show is a purrfect example of a 1960s outfit.

Instead I went with a flat black. No shiny leather or spandex. Or latex. I thought about her being agile like a cat or dancer. So the outfit ended up more like a dance unitard with a few open spots. Big belt and rope filled out the rest. I didn't put ears on her head, since I was trying to keep this "real" world. But the necklace works.

When I did the Death, 1968 piece I was thinking Twiggy but felt like it looked more like Marlo Thomas of THAT GIRL! Here I was thinking Emma Peel, but I think it's a mix of Natalie Wood and Lisa Loeb. :)
