This is the final pencils for my Immortan Joe pinup commission that I am working on. Since the visual excitement from this character comes from his face, I really decided to make that the focus of the composition. Also I tilted the horizon line of to force some motion into the artwork- this is really emphasized by the background where Immortan Joe’s car, “The Gigahorse” is also giving a strong visual cue to the fact that there is some motion and action in the artwork. Taking a cue from 1966’s television classic “Batman” where the villains lairs were always tilted (to show their nefarious nature) this helps to show that Immortan Joe is indeed an evil character that accents his scary appearance.
Just a small sketch commission I made for a client of David Tennant in pen and ink, I threw a bit of color to accent his 3-D glasses.
Sinbad fighting a Sea Monster and a Zombie foot soldier… good stuff, loved the massive scale on Sinbad.
Finally got the hand drawn inks for this collaborative project done, right in the nick of time for Awesome Con 2015 this weekend.
Presented in the classic pen and ink style that I love to do… my friend Maki Roll as Taarna…
What started off as a conversation on facebook about my friend Maki Roll asking people “what should she wear as a costume?” and me saying “Taarna from 1981’s Heavy Metal” has turned into a full blown experiment in artwork,cosplay and artist alley commerce where Maki is going to build a Taarna costume and I will create artwork of her as the character with the classic bird/steed that Taarna rides around on. Our plan is to jointly debut and sell this as a print at Awesome Con May 29-31 in Washington DC at my Artist Alley Table with Maki being dressed at Taarna for the event!
Here are the final pencils for the project…
Below are my figure studies for Maki and the Bird
A commission I did at Nittany Con of the Cybernetic Unicorn villain Cy-Corn from Lords of the Cosmos.
Another difficult character design to pull off, but very rewarding to get done for my client… who was the same gentleman that commissioned the Mordantix artwork I made in November 2014.
You can see that 2014 artwork here to see the other Lords of the Cosmos commission.
The end of Chapter 2 of LOTC- and the end of Phase one of my work on this project- Umex finally goes Head to Head with Aegeus as we end it on a cliffhanger… Time to take a break from this comic for a while and work on some pinups and posters, but don’t worry Lords of the Cosmos will be coming at you in the next few comics (Ugli Studios Presents #3 and #4 and then Lords of the Cosmos Volume #1) I create in 2015 as the finished versions of these 30 pages become actual stories you can enjoy!
Here is the final art for this page and my thumbnails and layouts
