Sketches and Scratches 45

Sometimes sketches don't always come out like they are supposed to  this is one of those cases.  And unlike most I am not afraid to  show it off and get it ripped apart.

Sketches and Scratches 43

Okay, So I think alot few of you know about the issue I have with batman.  I love drawing the character an all but for some reason I never feel like I do him justice. I am have the same issue with another character.    Mr. Terrific,  I have draw him countless time but  never feel that I captured him correctly,   But here is a pencil and ink sketch I was playing around with .

Back with more later.

Sketches and Scratches 39

Well here is another Unearthed Concept piece. Even though I still think its cool as hell they promote Luke cage some much, I still hate that he does not have a costume. So seeing Raheight redesign on DA, it sparked my interest in doing it again.

Luke Cage is property of Marvel Entertainment
Art is mine.

More on the way,


Sketches and Scratches 38

The old layout has to go, it was getting on my nerves really and I need a change.

but that is not what you are hear to see at all. So, with that said here is an unearthed raw sketch that I worked on some time last year but never go around to posting anywhere at all.

Ares ( The Marvel Comics Version) 

I will probably put the pencils, inks, and final color up on DA and maybe even my redesign website (whenever I get around to updating it.)

More on the way, sorry for the wait.

R.I.P Frank Frazetta

I know I am kinda late, but I have been  knocking around a reason to post something.  I don't want it to seem like I am posting something because everyone else is, but I just wanted to say he will be  soarly missed, the man is a legend and damn near created the fantasy art genre.   With out him I don't think most of the art and image I see and draw today would be what they are.

Thank Frank.

PS  R.I.P Lena Horne

ArtRage Fun 21

Back with another update. This time is the lovely harley quinn.  I don't know why but I have been chomping at the bit to draw here for some reason. It maybe because i saw the lovely Arie Monroe of knock out like 5 in week and wanted to try my hand at it.  This was just my first attempt at this character I plan on doing a real version of her shortly.

This peice is also special because it marks the my first completed sketch peice with ArtRage 3.  Actually, its ArtRage Studio Pro that  I got a chance to demo and must say I am so going in on this program.  It is by far leaps and bounds above it predecessor, it is not even funny. As soon as i open it up and saw all of the new brushes and settings I almost lost it.  I found myself wrapped up in the water color brush and  some of the other tools as well.  There is so much to explore and do with this program that I still have not had the chance to go through and try everything.   I have been having endless amount of fun exploring what I can do with this program.

I am a bit amazed at the cost.  At 80 bucks this program is on par or at the same level with some of the other natural media programs out there today.   

Now I just have to get my hands on a Cintiq and I will be in artist heaven. But that is on far off, dream. 

With the said let me say that there is so much more to come,  especially with the new artrage.  I may start having to post more the just raw sketches. maybe,

So things will be touch and go here for second, between this job, comic book I am working on for someone (more on that soon) and my own artwork. Besides the fact that I am also working on other clients work as well as trying to get few art book out the door with a few other artist. I am stretching myself very thin.

So enough with the me, me, me bs here is a quick pic I did while at work. I was bored so I had to do something.

No Clue on a name just randomness from the mind:

ArtRage Fun 19

As I am one of many that is stuck inside because of the big "SNOWPACALYPSE". I decided to upload something relatively new, I mean you all have not seen. This one was a rough for a character I have been playing around with. I wanted to do a fully digital rendering of it, however I am not sure when I will get back around to this one.

so enjoy, I am get around to the full render one day and maybe even upload the full body turnaround.

More on the way.

Pardon My babble ...

...but I seem to be going through a crisis of an artist nature. I produce a a lot of works form illustration to graphic design, comic book art to web design, T-shirt apparel design to Vector illustrations concept art to 3d character models. So I have lot of work and in recent years I have been holding off on pushing any of it because I wanted to put it in an artbook. But, it is increasingly hard on me to look at my art I have set aside for an artbook or a sketch book that is almost 2 years old and see good work or work that represent what I can do.

So my question, my queue is if you think one should hold showing the artwork to be shown exclusively in an art book or just put it out and if an art book comes up collect your best put it out. Don't worry about exclusivity and just be an artist.

Just something that is knocking around in my head. I sitting here on 200 or so various art works for projects that may or may not happen. I'd rather be see that than wait to see them if a book or two get out.

2010 and Beyond

Damn I am late in the updates but wanted to wish everybody happy holidays and definitely HAPPY NEW YEAR.

And with one big breath good bye to 2009, you have not been the best year.

but New Day, New year, New Decade, Lets Go.

On to the art as I do every Year, I knock out a single piece of art at the stroke of midnight. This years is IMMFHO is 100x better that last years, In fact I may color this one. I have yet to do that on any of the pieces I have done at the beginning of the year. Last years art was utter crap and basically that's the way the year went.

No name but I love the way in turned out and even slapped some grungy old paper on it for fun.

hope 2010 is great for all we all need to be in one way or another.
