Storms pretty neat, never really been a huge fan though. Meh, Pikachu has got dis yo!

Ho man I never had so fun much drawing lightning! Storm is one of the coolest female characters I know in Marvel. She's a power house and doesn't really get acknowledged enough for it. Also, in general I kind of favor young characters with white hair.

The feeling I stole this composition or color pallet from someone else's drawing of Storm is strong with this one. I still like it though.
Wednesday, November 23, 2011
I'd finished the bulk of this piece last night and wanted a night's rest before I added the highlights. So imagine my surprise when I saw that my composition mirrored that of Mr. Walsh's (kinda like showing up to a party and seeing someone else wearing the same dress -- embarrassing! amiright, fellas?).
Trust me, this was pure coincidence.
I really had no strong feelings about Storm until the X-Men's run-in with the Morlocks. Her new punk look and the way she kicked Callisto's ass sans her weather powers really made an impression on me. Plus, it didn't hurt that Paul Smith was entrusted with the art chores on the book (so good it makes my eyes rain!).
I was initially going to colour this but I really think the black and white turned out well and I didn't want to take away from it. As for the character herself, I think Storm is probably my favourite Marvel woman. I couldn't resist drawing her punker incarnation, just so fun to draw.
Anyway, this illustration is pretty simple, BB is all attitude and his shadow reflects his power. I read somewhere that Pteranodon was one of his favourite forms in the show, so I went with that.

Uh, now eventually you do plan to have beasts on your, on your Beast Boy week, right? Uh, hello? Yes?
(I think you can view it in a little bigger size if you "open image in a new tab", that's if you were into that sort of thing.)
Jungle love, it's drivin' me mad, it's makin' me crazy.
Awesome pick this week by Selena--Beast Boy's pretty much my favorite non-Robin Titan, though that's only since the animated series. The 80s comic book version in the christmas colours always annoyed me. Gonna be a fun week!

Upon taking a second glance, my Beast Boy came out slightly more feral than the Gar we're all accustomed to.
And yes, that is the Thundercats Lion-O glove that he's sporting. :-)
Fyi, the original drawing was done with a Grand & Toy ball point pen.

Hey guys! Long time no post, sorry about that. October was a hell of a month for me, but I should be back on schedule and posting regularly for the foreseeable future.
While I was aware of The Rocketeer, I wasn't really familiar with anything about it other than "oh it's that guy with a cool helmet and a jetpack and his girlfriend is Bettie Page spelt with a 'y'" so I had to do some research before starting on this. I had a few concepts for the illustration, but settled on this one in the end since it seemed both atypical and easy.
I was wrong about the latter.
For me, I did watch the Rocketeer as a kid, but that was about it really. I remember seeing the old movie and thinking how cool it would be to zoom around on my own rocket pack. I more than likely did zoom around the house afterwards, maybe with my favorite action figure zooming with me (Mikey of the Ninja Turtles). I would say that I did like him, and I have always thought that he was such a neat character, but I was never really "IN" to him. I had some real fun drawing him this time around. I tried to give him the respect he deserves. Hope you all enjoy, I know I did.

I've had a really crazy week so I didn't get to put in as much time on this as I wanted but am pretty happy with the turnout. A little sketchier then most of my entries but I did have a lot of fun with it!
Tuesday, November 8, 2011
It's my pick this week and I've always had a fondness for the Rocketeer ever since my friends and I managed to score some passes for a preview showing at the Cinesphere way back in June of 1991. This led me to seek out Dave Stevens' comic which is just so easy on the eyes -- do yourself a favour and pick it up!
My version has Cliff Secord's girlfriend, Betty, donning the helmet and rocket pack because, well, let's face it, we all know my penchant for drawing cheesecake will not be denied! And I'm still on my cardboard paper kick, this time with red ColErase pencils.

My choice this week, and I chose to pay tribute to one of my favorite comic book characters going right now. If you like to laugh, you should read atomic robo. If you like sci-fi, you should read atomic robo. If you like vampire dimensions and insane dinosaur scientists, you are in for a treat.

I don't remember at what age I discovered I was more or less the last person left on earth romanticizing the hobo life, but it came as a blow I can assure you.

Well I'm kinda late to the Halloween party, but I think you'll get over it, right? Right.
My Universal Monsters pick was The Metaluna Mutant from 1955's "This Island Earth". At first I really didn't know what I could do for the mutant besides just having him stand around or trying to kill someone, but then I remember the one thing all monsters have in common: They're super horny.
Almost every monster I can think of is trying to steal our lovely earth women for their own twisted monster needs. So I just ran with that, and ended up adding the horniest of all monsters, the Martians from 1962's "Mars Attacsks!" trading cards and there you have it. I imagine the Martians saved the Mutant from his doomed home of Metaluna in order to worship him in all his brainy horniness. God help our women folk.

My initial idea was the one that's been done to death: split screen both faces of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde a la Two-Face. Meh. Too easy. Still having way too much fun with cardboard, markers and white pencil.
Happy Hallowe'en everyone!
