Wildfire - Legion of Super-Heroes

Another Legion commission! I can't get enough of them! Today is Wildfire! I thought Wildfire was one of the coolest looking characters when I first saw him in Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes 205. He didn't do much but that visor was cool. It wasn't until I got the elusive issue 201 and the even more elusive first appearance in issue 195 (you have no idea how difficult it was to find that comic back then) that I got to see him in action. Good times!

And if you are interested, I also recorded the inking process and uploaded it to my YouTube channel. Click on over for the better resolution.

Last Batch of Legionnaires

Dawnstar

Element Lad

Karate Kid

This is the last of this batch of Legionnaires. I'm gonna miss them. All the pieces have been a blast to do. Exploring costumes that were never used or only seen in a very limited fashion. Which just reminded me of some costumes that Legion artist Jim Sherman did in one of the Legion treasury books. Some of those never saw action outside of that book. Maybe that will be a future batch?

More Legion of Super-Heroes

I am in the middle of some color Legionnaire commissions. Here are two of the recent ones.

Sorry about the images. My scanner has never done a decent job with the subtlety of watercolors so I just took quick photos of the images.

I've had a few emails asking about doing a round of commissions for the holidays. I am hoping to announce something along those lines in the next few weeks. I've had a couple work projects going and then I had a big series of jobs drop in my lap that need to be done. Plus I still have a few more Legion paintings that I took on just before the extra, extra work happened. When I have a better idea of my time I will announce something here and on Twitter. Which feeds my Facebook page as well.

Gamora, Goblin Queen, & Magik

Here are few watercolor and ink pieces I have done recently. All three are for sale under the "Art for Sale" tab at the top of page.

I will probably doing more of these as time allows.

Supergirl - FCBD Sketch Cover & Free Comic Book Day Info

I do work every year on various Overstreet comic related books and magazines. This year was no exception. For Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) I did a new intro (written by JC Vaughn) for the book pictured above. I always get comp copies but this was the first time there is a sketch cover version. This is really cool! So I tried out the paper and I am really pleased. It held the ink great and it held watercolor! I have only 10 copies and will auction them on eBay as I finish.

Speaking of FCBD, I will be at FANFARE SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT for FCBD. I will be doing free head sketches most of the day. If you are in the Kalamazoo Michigan area, drop by!
