Fastest Man Alive

It's about time I did a picture of my favorite superhero. The inspiration for this piece was a poster I had hanging on my wall for around 18 years by the late great Mike Wieringo. His run on the Flash was hugely influential to me, I only wish I had gotten the chance to meet him and thank him.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's hoping everyone's having a happy and safe Turkey Day!

Sandy +6

Welp, Sandy came through and put the hurt on us. I got off extremely lucky with just an occasional light flicker, so my heart goes out to all the people still without power and other necessities.
I feel a little guilty, my biggest problem was the shutdown of the MTA had me pretty much stranded and unable to reach my day job, but then I think about how much worse it could have been and I'm very grateful.

Illidan Stormrage and Arthas Menethil

I did several commissions at NYCC and I didn't think to record them, spoiled by having easy access to my scanner at home. Thankfully Kazuo let me use his awesome camera phone to take pictures of at least two. Here they are, Mr. Black Temple and the Liege of Litches.

Welcome to all my new friends!

Things are getting back to normal around here, so I thought I'd give a shout-out to all the people I met at NYCC! I made some new friends, and got to exchange ideas with some really great artists!  The best part was my students coming to visit me at my table. Thanks guys, that really meant a lot to me. To show my appreciation, here's a little something I did while I was goofing around with a ball point pen.

Con Sketch

Here's a Phoenix commission I did for at the con, I was surprised and a little nervous at the request, he wanted me to draw on a blank comic cover, but the client was happy and I think it came out pretty well.

Fell's Flats

An update! Ive done the flat colors and initial shading, from here it's adding highlights and other lighting effects, and some texture(maybe).  I grabbed the colors from the comic itself, so I may tweak the values a bit as I feel they look a little weak without solid blacks to "anchor" them.
