Here's an "inked sketch" of Anabeth Almeida or Annan, or Aurelia...still tossing the surname around. (May just drop the "A.A." convention altogether to avoid the inevitable jokes) Without giving too much away I can say that Anabeth is one of the principal characters of the story as Buraiden is very much her "Hero's Journey". She's a teenager and sort of a fish out of water, so I wanted her outfit to be more fashion magazine, less fantasy novel. Still have a few detailes to iron out with her. Stay tuned for more Character previews and more detailed bios over the next week.

Hey everyone, be sure to drop by and check my good friend and fellow illustrator Julia Yong at #2BiggsStudio and #BiggieAndMe. She's awesomely talented and you can find her in the studio working hard everyday! She has a variety of works on display there including some of my own. It's located at 17 Essex Street @Canal

Hey guys, thought I'd share my rough pencils for a page from the upcoming chapter. I recently switched to non-reproducing blue pencils as an experiment, and pre-ruled 11x17 boards as it saves time because I don't have to futz with re-sizing and templates as much. . I'm fairly satisfied with the results. Main problems are difficulty scanning ( luckily I have a friend with a large bed scanner), and it's hard to find non-repro blue leads for mechanical pencils. Getting the level of precision I like means I'm stopping every minute or so to sharpen the pencil, it's driving me crazy!

I can't talk enough about my positive experiences at EternalCon and the awesome people I met there. Thank you so much guys. Here's a commission I did Saturday of Captain Marv...I mean Shazam! (that's going to take some getting used to) It didn't quite come out the way I wanted because the client was pressed for time, and my own lack of sleep. I like the pose though, I may do something more with it.

EternalCon is one of my favorite conventions. The location is absolutely awesome and the people are amazing! I was blown away by the sheer enthusiasim of the crowd and amazed at the professionalism of the staff. they manage to run things smoothly and are still personable at the same time.I had a blast again this year and can't wait for next year. Thank you to everyone who came out to say hi, and for all the kind words and compliments, they make me want to step my game up even more!
