A Writing and Art Forum

One of my brothers, Ron De'Anor, has put up a website that has a lot of his own writing and one of our other friend's work as well. They do a lot of writing and are looking for some artwork to go with it. If you see anything that inspires you, draw it, submit it and you'll have some free hosting! check it out: Tribal Sun Studios I have some of my VERY FIRST comic work up there: see it here: The Prophecy

The Avengers: Ink Test

So I found this amazing Cub Scout song book from 1955 that has some amazing inked drawing in it. They are completely brush and the artist (still trying to figure out who it is) is amazingly confident with the brush and just drops lines in the work like it's hot. It's impressive. Anyway, figured I'd try it on The Avengers in preparation for next summers movies...and I also did Wolverine.

Spider-Man Processes 4: Colors

The final Image of this piece...Color. This was done in photoshop with color fills for the highlights and the shadows. They are complimentary to each other, so the highlights are a desaturated yellow-orange and the shadows are a saturated blue-purple. This is the finished commissioned SpiderMan image.

Spider-Man Processes 3: Final Inks

Here is the final black and white image for the House of M Spider-Man commission. One thing to notice on this image, is how true I stayed to the thumbnail. Most of the black and white decision making was done in the thumbnail stage, so when I was doing the final illustration, all I had to figure out was the rendering style. Nothing else.
As far as tools go, I used a lot of technical pen on this since most of the background are tall skyscrapers. For Spidey himself, I used a tachikawa mapping pen (available on and a windsor newton series 7 size 1 brush.
