I've been cranking out work in preparation to start a new comic in the coming weeks. These are my most recent work (after spending a couple of weeks studying anatomy, composition, etc). I'm pretty happy with a lot of this stuff and feel like I'm getting more comfortable with the style I want to use for the new comic book. Plus, it gave me a reason to draw Mister Miracle, one of the all-time great comic book costumes.

Do you do commissions?

I do, actually. I generally do them at conventions but have been known to do a little side work here and there when I'm not prepping for a con.

BTW, somehow my Gambit didn't make it into that post.

@rocketpig:

Nice work man! My fave is Green Arrow.

Thanks, Rams! I'm working furiously on the new comic now... After several weeks of anatomical studies, composition studies, layout studies, color studies, blah blah blah, I'm actually drawing pages. I still have some work to do on the coloring (it's not *quite* where I want it yet) but it's getting close. Here's a sample page that I'm using as a test page for color tests. I'm close to settling on a style and now it's on to the next page so I can see how flexible this style is for various pages.

@rocketpig: I love the Mary Marvel best of the bunch. Good work on all, great colors.

@Decept-O: Thanks! Odd that you find the MM pic most appealing... It's probably my least favorite of the bunch. To each their own, though, right? :D

@rocketpig: Certainly. While there may be a few minor things "off" about the Mary Marvel piece, they aren't enough for me to dislike it by any means. I like the pose you drew, the perspective and esp the colors and background.

Beautiful drawings! My favorite pic was the 2nd one, though Ollie really isn't Ollie without the beard XD.

great work mate. Excellent. Love your colouring too. What's your comic about? Are you publishing it?

Heh, I was watching the TV show when I drew that so I just kind of made up a hybrid version of GA. Arrow might be my favorite superhero so I'm also a big fan of his beard (and absolutely despise the New 52 treatment of the character).

I'm slowly posting pages on my site but haven't started "really" producing pages yet. I'm still working out some of the kinks with drawing style, coloring, site layout, etc. I plan to "officially" launch it in about two months after I get more content on the site. You can check out what I have in the meantime, though:
