My poor, forgotten blog...I haven't updated you in so long...

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been busy working on Brandi Bare issue #4. :) I'll be sure to post more often though.



Happy Holidays!

61st Post!

Man, I'm slacking on blog updates lately. It's only because I've been hard at work on the 4th issue of Brandi Bare! You can see some of the new work for yourself on September 25th with the new Kickstarter goes live (I'll update this page with the link).
EDIT: and it's live! Brandi Bare #4 Kickstarter
Here's a little sketch I did for it today :)

Just some random silliness. this one was all photoshop.

60th post!

jeez, long time no update...sorry! :)

finally wrapping up the last bits of my Brandi Bare kickstarter campaign. Haven't posted much for a month or so, but that doesn't mean I haven't been drawing. just a bit behind on keeping up with everything else.

A recent copic marker commission (and the progress shots):
Digital sketch:
 Finished copics:
And some sketch cards I finished last month that I forgot to post. These were for the Contemporary Pinups Puzzle sets. (longer cards that had 2 artists work on the same card. lots of fun!)
For this set I did 8 cards. the top 4 were drawn by me then sent to artist George Webber to fill in the blank area. The next pic down were the 4 cards George drew first that were then sent to me to draw on the area he left blank.

59th Post!

It's been a little while since I've posted an update. sorry about that! I've been a little busy wrapping up the third issue of Brandi Bare. Which, if you were part of the Kickstarter campaign, you've already had a chance to read.  The digital version at least, the printed version is currently being...printed.

so here's a few pieces of art from the comic.

regular cover version:

and the exclusive cover for the Kickstarter supporters:
 and here's some other stuff the Kickstarter backers will be getting...
These postcards were one of the stretch goals we hit while the campaign was running. Just got them
back from the printer.

58th Post!

Bombshells sketch card set from Bad Axe Studios. realized I never actually posted these (aside from 3 preview cards a few months ago).

here are all the cards I did...minus a few of the base cards (which were posted a while back as well).

I did have a lot of fun with these...History Channel and Military Channel are a couple of my favorite tv channels :))

57th Post!

Back home from Heroes Con and rested a bit. Thought I'd post a few of the convention sketches I remembered to take pictures of.  (though there's always a bunch I forget about).

 Copic Marker sketch cover of Batgirl
 Retro Rocket I put Brandi in there :). copic markers (watercolor background)
 Jun from Gatchaman. Drawn by Gene Gonzales, colored by me. First official commission where I did the coloring on someone else's drawing. Very cool! (copics/watercolor background)
 Poison Ivy, watercolor
 Powergirl, copics (watercolor background)
 Teen Titan girl (whose name I can't remember :)) copics in a sketchbook
Golden Age Wonder Woman (copics/watercolor background)

Thanks again to everyone that stopped by and got sketches, picked up books or just chatted. Heroes is always the friendliest convention. it's always great to see everyone there. :)

56th post!

Some new stuff before I head off to Heroes Con in North Carolina (June 7-9 2013).
I'll be set up in Artist's Alley at table AA-1422

First up, Poison Ivy which is my piece for the Heroes Con auction:
and here's a couple progress shots:
sketched out in photoshop,
and then the actual pencils and a couple painting shots:
and some more stuff...
Just because I'm totally addicted to Game of Thrones! Daenerys Targaryen, and yes, that's Kitty Pryde's Lockheed. seemed fitting :)
 Rogue on a blank sketch cover (copic markers)
and then a Batgirl companion piece for the Poison Ivy painting.

52nd Post!

I've been slow on the updates lately...sorry! The Brandi Bare kickstarter project has kept me busy lately.

Here's some new art that I've finished up for it.

Color versions of the postcard sets I created for the backers of the project.

See the earlier posts for the pencil versions of them. (These were colored in Photoshop and Painter.)

51st Post!

Today is last day of the Brandi Bare Kickstarter. And I've been amazed by how it's turned out! can't thank everyone enough!
Here's some new art of the most recent stretch goal that was reached (2 sets of 4 postcard themed pinups)
The first one's theme is 'Bedtime'. They'll all be colored eventually, but just Brandi's is colored for now.
the other theme was 'Phoning it in'. Featuring the time-honored tradition of girls taking pictures of themselves with their cel phones! where would the internet be without that?!
They'll all be digitally colored eventually and printed and mailed to backers of the Brandi Bare kickstarter that qualified with their pledges.

50th Post!

Since the Brandi Bare kickstarter is still going strong, I thought I'd post a couple more pieces here:

This is from the 'Making Of' comic that all backers will be receiving with the regular comics:
 Inked Original art is on the left, Digital colors are on the right.

and this is a few select shots from recent pages. just for fun :) (without giving away any spoilers)

49th Post!

Some new art that's a part of my Brandi Bare Kickstarter project. (don't know what that is? take a look here!)

First one is my statement towards helping with water conservation. yup. I'm all about public service messages. :)
The 2nd piece was heavily inspired by the shows Game of Thrones (just finished season 1...onto season 2) and Vikings (new show on History Channel). I really enjoy stuff like this but rarely get a chance to work it into my art. So I decided to have some fun with this one and dress them all up like warriors...though trying to keep their attitudes the same from the comics. :)

everyone that pledges $25 or more gets these prints (and one more I'm still working on) included with the comics!
