2019 BATMAN RED RAIN WIP01

September 22, 2019 | Posted in art | By

With my favorite holiday just around the corner. It’s got me inspired to create some creature artwork. So I’ve been wanting to paint this Batman from one of my favorite Elseworld stories. Haven’t done an illustration on black paper in some time and thought this Batman illustration would look good on it and capture the atmosphere I wanted to express with this piece.  Here’s the beginning stage of my Batman Red Rain painting on Strathmore Artagain paper.

2019 BOUNDLESS COMIC DAY

September 6, 2019 | Posted in appearances, art | By

This Saturday, September 7, 2019 is Boundless Day. I will be at Horizon Comics with other creators from 9am-noon for the book signing. It’s an amazing and an honor to be part of a project that takes your talents and abilities to help the world. Art has always been about healing and the way it touches the lives of individuals at the core of their being for me. My dad passed from cancer, so this comic definitely resonates with me on so many deep personal levels. If you have some time, come out a pick up this comic and helping others to heal and thrive. Horizon will be open from 9am-4pm if you can’t make it during the creators signing time. 

Thanks for your love and support!

2019 FLASHPOINT FINISHED SKETCH COVER

August 16, 2019 | Posted in art | By

Here is the finished Flashpoint Joker Cover. On this last stage, I stared with a base green color. Form there went back and forth with the different shades of green layering until the hair was complete. The background was lacking something for me so I added lightning to bring the whole cover together. Lastly, I didn’t like the way the yellow on the logo looked with rest of the cover so I decided it needed to change. Since Flashpoint Batman’s logo is black and red, I decided to change the logo to match that style.  The change was made with a red copic maker by going over all the yellow areas of the logo. Once it was done, the cover come together fully. Rendered with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, Liquitex paint and Posca paint markers.

Here is progress shot 3 for this Flashpoint Joker Sketch Cover. I started by working on the right side collar first. From there, I moved onto rendering the rest of the right side purple areas. Next, I moved onto the left side until all the purple areas were complete. I continued to use dry brush technique for the trench coat. The dry brush technique brings out shapes and textures while dragging the paint across the paper. Rendered with Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and Liquitex paint.

2019 FINISHED VENOM PAINTED SKETCH COVER

July 1, 2019 | Posted in art | By

Found a little time between projects and prepping for Comic Con to finish this Venom Sketch Cover. I continued to work with more dry brush technique on the rest of the body area. Once Venom was finished up, I moved on to the logo area. For this area, I used uni POSCA paint markers to outline, fill and touch up the logo from the background paint that made its way into the logo. The painted cover was rendered with a combination of Faber-Castell PITT artists pens, POSCA Paint Markers and Liquitex Paint.
