The Damned by Cullen Bunn

This is a six page preview that was published by Oni Press for The Damned. It was written by Cullen Bunn and originally drawn by the amazing Brian Hurtt. I can only hope to work up to his level some day. I hope you enjoy my version.

Since everyone does a picture of she hulk holding a massive bar bell. I figured I would too! Another for an artistsmecca.com artist.

So I just watched the first episode of the Witchblade anime on Netflix instant....that was a waste of about 25 minutes of my day. It was almost, and I say ALMOST, as bad as the live action version of the show from the late 1990s. I LOVE the comic, and I wish the rest of the entertainment media could find a way to do it justice....unless I missed something...anyone? All the girls that will be coming up are all commissions for a fellow artist on artistsmecca.com

Superhero Sanitarium




Final Image

A commission based upon a play called The Superhero Sanitarium. All the characters and in an insane asylum and may or may not have powers. That is revealed at the end of the show. All these characters are based of the kids that played them in the play in Fayetteville, GA last fall. This also shows the process I go through when doing my comic work. I start with a little thumbnail (about 1/4 sheet of paper). Then I'll scan and print that at 11"x17" and do some tight-ish pencils. I'll then ink that and scan it back in. All my coloring happens in photoshop using color fills. I like this option because it's easy to edit a mood and feel simply by changing a color fill layer. Then into illustrator to add the vector text and saved as a .pdf from there. Enjoy!

Ross and the Yeti: Page 3

The Third and, for now, final installment of Ross and the Yeti. We finally get to see what this guy's been searching for. Not that it's that big of a secret....Yeti is in the title. But is that what he's searching for?!

Ross and the Yeti: Page 2

Here's the second page to Ross and the Yeti. This whole comic was an exercise with a new inking style. It's much looser and there is A LOT more sketchiness to the marks. I think it's starting to really help me define the style of my artwork.

Nowlan's Morbius Ink Tests

Over the weekend I had a portfolio review with Bon Alimagno, the talent coordinator at Marvel Comics. He is a brilliant man who understands where to push an artist to get his or her full potential. My review was very good and his feedback was very positive. Regardless, here is a warm up ink sketch. This image is inked over a Kevin Nowlan image of Morbius, you can see the original here: Nowlan's Morbius

Drawing from Photos

I found some fantastic black and white photos from Dorothea Lange, and did some drawing from them with a Slicci pen (can also use a Pentel Hi-Tec C). They are great drawing tools and really make you decide where you are putting your marks. I also did a profile portrait of one of my professors at SCAD, Shawn Crystal, check out his work HERE
