This year Comic-Con celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. I Didn’t get a chance to adventure around SDCC floor much, but here’s a little bit of what I did get some shots of this year.
There is one week to go on the BOUNDLESS #1: A benefit comic for cancer research and treatment campaign on INDIEGOGO!
There is this deep connection to life like nothing else when your giving back to the world to be a better place with the talents and abilities you have.
This Horizon Comics project is brought to life by Writers: Nathan Armentrout & Roger May • Artists: Ray-Anthony Height & Chris Johnson • Inkers: Brian Lopez-Santos & David Arroyo • Colorist: Cody Wilson • Lettering & Graphic Production: Pepe Melan
Please check out and share this campaign with your family and friends.
The art cave is busy with prepping for SDCC. Working on painting some sketch covers to have with me at Booth 1330. This Flashpoint Joker is currently on my art table.
Lots going on in the art cave, knocking out projects, commissions, gearing up for Comic Con. I will be exhibiting with Cathleen Abalos and Dean Rullan at Cool Cat Blue Booth 1330. I will have custom sketch covers, prints, and my indie comic magazine Unique Realm Illustrated and new Twisted Fate merch & apparel.
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.
Slowly making a little more progress on this sketch cover between various projects. On this progress stage, I moved on to rendering the the face area with dry brush technique to create the symbiote texture.
I’m slowly making a little more progress on this Venom Sketch Cover between various projects. With the background all finished up, I moved on to painting the mouth area. I started painting the tongue first and built up the color layers with dry brush technique. Then I moved on to rendering the gums with the same technique.
Started working on this Sketch Cover. With the Venom Sketch Cover pencils all finished up, I moved on to painting the background. Here is the process behind the work in progress 1. The background was laid down by layering different tones of red upon each other. Once the look I was going for was achieved, I moved on to adding more texture with Liquitex free•style Splatter Brushes.
Today from 10am-4pm is Boundless #1 Celebration Day. Stop by and bid on the silent auction art by Chris Johnson, David Arroyo, B2rianls, and myself. The proceeds go to the publishing and raising money for cancer treatment!
