Iron Man Races to Birthday Bash

A commission purchased as a birthday present for a young Avengers fan. I did this as a tonal rendering using B pencils on 11×14 Bristol. I combined Iron Man’s Mach 6 and Mach 7 suits from the movies to arrive at this final look.

Matt Webb Colors Thing Collage Old School!

When veteran comic book colorist Matt Webb asked me if he could take a crack at coloring my Thing Collage, I was excited. Matt was colorist on John Byrne’s NEXT MEN in the 1990s, and is the regular colorist on the Monsterverse graphic novel series, FLESH AND BLOOD!

Matt told me he’d like to do simple colors using the sort of color palette and k-tones that would have been available on the 1960s FANTASTIC FOUR comic covers, so I told him to go for it! I really dig what he came up with! It’s the classic Ben colors from the Lee/Kirby/Sinnott era, and I like how he kept the floating heads simple–like ghostly images from the past! Nice work, Matt!

Zatanna and a Couple of Boobs: Now in Color!

Here’s the finished colors on “Zatanna and a Couple of Boobs!” I think the colors turned out well, and I’d especially like to thank Steve Downer for his advice on how to approach the color on the background elements. This piece was a lot of fun, so I hope you enjoy the full color humor.

Commission: Zatanna, Blue Beetle, and Booster Gold

Here’s a commission I did for the awesome Hallopino! This illustration features the mystic Zatanna transforming the Blue Beetle, Booster Gold and Skeets into female versions of themselves! LOL.

I thought this was a very fun idea for a commission, and I enjoyed drawing it. Though I’ve recently drawn a Zatanna commission or two, it’s been a few years since I drew Zee in the animated style. The last time I did, it was for an illustration in a DCU kids book about 10 years ago. I love drawing Zatanna in any style! So much fun, that character! My favorite bit on this was Skeets with large boob shapes. You just know that’ll mess with the mechanized aerodynamics…

And if you’re interested in art techniques, I created the background texture using ink and a combination of sponge stamping and stippling.
