MMD Teaser 3 (final Inks)

So, it's all coming together.  As I complete phases of this project I am learning more and more about the complexity of comics and how many different formats can be used for the comic medium.  Right now I am completing the final pieces of artwork for this project and am about to start coloring the comic portion.  I am looking forward to finishing this up and seeing the final result when it's all said and done.  It should be released before Black Friday this winter.  I'll keep you updated.

MMD Process (teaser 2)

This is another scene from the MMD comic I am working on.  I really liked the depth and composition I was getting with this piece, so I thought I'd show it.  I am in the middle stage of the inking on this panel and I thought I'd show some process and put this up again when I finish it.  It will have a good amount of black in it, and some serious blood splatter!  Fun!
For this project I am using a pentel stylo pen that mimics a nib, but you don't have to keep dipping into an ink well.  I don't like it as much as a nib, but it's giving my line work a good consistency, and allowing me to play with black and white shape to create eye movement and depth.  That is something Mignola does VERY well with his Hellboy work.  Enjoy!

Hellboy Interlude

I am still thoroughly enjoying Mike Mignola's Hellboy.  I would love to work on that property, so I am drawing him a LOT.  I hope you enjoy this one.  This is step one of inks.  I'll finish him when I have time and then post the finish.

MMD Teaser 1

Nothing is more fun than chains and torture.  These are a couple more teaser panels for my latest project.  I am nearly done with the black and white and will be moving on to colors next.  I know I should be my own biggest critic, but I think I am really hitting some nice line work and compositions with this project.  I hope you agree!

Back again...and with ART!

Well, I've been absent from regular posts for a while, and I am hoping to change that this month.  I have been busy doing a LOT of work.  The biggest of my projects I can't announce yet due to the contract I have signed on it, but I am allowed to show some images.  This image is for the main villain of the story.  When this project is officially announced, it's going to BLOW YOUR MIND!  At least I hope it certainly got me excited about it.  Anyway, more to come in the coming weeks.
