Had a fantastic time boothing with these amazing friends Cathleen & Cassandra Abalos, Dean & Glady Rullan, and Matthew Walker at SDCC 2019. For me there is nothing like being part of comic conventions. It’s when I feel the most alive beside when creating art. Exhibiting is exhausting, but in other ways it sets my soul of fire, the whole essence of my being always comes away feeling more alive, energized and inspired from exhibiting.
A huge thank you to everyone that stopped by the booth! We look forward to seeing you all again soon!!
Here is a little more progress on this Doctor Doom Sketch Cover. Finished up all the metal area and moved on to the inside hood area.
I’ve been wanting to paint this sketch cover since the pencils were complete, but had other projects to finish up first. The painting process has begun on this Doctor Doom Sketch Cover. Painting process 01 : Started with the skin tones and moved onto the metal area’s. Rendering with Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and Liquitex paint.
Gearing up for WonderCon with this painted Flashpoint Batman Sketch Cover. I will have this and other sketch covers available at my table in Artist Alley C-56. Rendering with Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and Liquitex paint.
Been wanting to illustrate some Elseworld characters. So went with one of my favorite Elseworld characters. Here is the Flashpoint Batman Sketch Cover Pencils all finished up. Will be adding color to this in the future.
The Invincible Iron Man Sketch Cover pencils are all finished up featuring the classic armor. Looking forward to adding color to this in the future.
Here is the Ant-Man Sketch Cover finished painting. For the final stage of this sketch cover painting I worked on the finished black part of the costume. Then went back to the helmet and finished up all the red areas. Lastly, I painted the red parts of the costume. The brushes I used for this stage are the size 5 & 10 spotter, size 2 angle shader and chiseled blender. I continued wit the dry brush technique that I talked about in previous posts. Dragging the paint with dry brush also achieves a satin feel to the painting.
Ant-Man Sketch Cover Painting is underway. Here’s the beginning process. I masked off the Ant-man with tracing paper and painter tape. Next I layered the paint background with sponges, cheap $1 paint brushes and Liquitex Freestyle Splatter Brushes.
Here’s the finished up Sinestro Sketch Cover and the last step to my process. This is my favorite part of the process, adding all the little things that bring the artwork together. I add yellow to the energy with marker and acrylic using dry brush. For the ring power glow I use the same technique. Plus I went back to enhance the in the eyes.
Here’s progress shot 2 of this Superman Red Son Sketch Cover. The collar and cape are finished up. Now I’m moving on to adding color to the costume. Medium used for adding color is Copics.
