Paintings and Comic Pages for my 2014 Project

2014 has been insanely busy! I have a really cool new project, with another co-worker, Jose.  I've done some acrylic paintings, and recorded videos of them being made so I hope to put up my first ever youtube videos this year.  I can't believe it's almost July already! Anyway, here's a few looks at a painting and 2 pages I'm proud of from 2014 thus far.

Acrylic on canvas paper, and ink on bristol.

New Stuff! Posters!

This has been a huge year for me, artistically and personally.  Which is a great thing (this time)!

I'd like to update soon with pics from everything, and re-do this blog.  Very soon! For now, though here's a summary: my writing/creative partner, Daniel Williams and I completed our first 32 page comic, printed it, and sold it along with a 90 page 'bible' to the fantasy universe created for the project, and had a table at the 2012 Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. That would be more commonly known as C2E2! It was a great start to this thing, and was an invaluable experience as far as networking, getting feedback and critiques, and just learning on all fronts. Anyway, pics and updates from the comic soon, but for now some new art from the project.

At the con, we started selling some of the art developed as 11x17 posters, so Dan wanted me to do some more.  I hadn't designed the original posters as specifically posters, but this time around I am so I'm liking it.  These are widely targeted at the next batch of stories for the series, so here's 5 uncompleted images in various stages that should all be complete soon.

They'll be for sale at the next con we do, as well as the website, . Oh yeah, the comic and book are also up for sale! Previews coming to this blog soon!

Hope you dig these, I'm pleased with the compositions.  From the top: Our aquatic princess meets the sea Goddess, the dark God and his disciple, a flying cart for traveling in the tree city, a few main characters encounters the most powerful member of the Council of Gods, and some lizard brothers encounter a group of scaly witches.

Wonder Woman Color Sketch

Practicing some coloring techniques for the comic pages. Might go a little less 'rough' looking for the actual pages.  I love texture, and its hard to get away from it.

Comic Pages so far

So I've got a lot of stuff to post in the upcoming weeks, but the major project has been adding six sequential art examples to my portfolio.  Here's pages 1-3 as they are right now, all in various stages.  Page 1 is getting inks, page 03 just got its final layout, and page 02 just finally got a rough layout.  Im generally really pleased with how its coming, but a few panels on page 01 bug me already, since that was my first effort most likely.

Comic Layout Page 1

Havn't updated in awhile but I have indeed been working on things.  Did this today, so I thought I'd post it. I'll post some of the other things I did in the last few months soon!

Superman/Batman progress

I'm doing 2 versions of the this image, so here's an almost finished first version. It became more of a landscape, which is why Im trying to do 2 pictures. The figures arn't all meshing together like I'd hoped, so Im not sure if I'll finish this one.  The composition for version 2 is next to it, Im currently working on that one.  Lex's feet are bugging me, but I can't find a good way to crop them out of the picture...we'll see where this ends up.
