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.

Sinbad fighting a Sea Monster and a Zombie foot soldier… good stuff, loved the massive scale on Sinbad.
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
Page 29 of Lords of the Cosmos… almost wrapped on phase one, one more page to go. Aegeus hears and sees the world wide emergency message from King Yuril, and assembles his flight crew to move out the Lords of the Cosmos team into action on board one of their huge VTOL transports….
The last of the Disciples of Umex attacking the people of Planet Aiden. Ending with a closeup of Umex doing a personal execution with his tentacle arm. Really hard page to pull off, but I was very proud of how this jam packed series of images turned out.
More assorted carnage from the DISCIPLES OF UMEX in the pages of LORDS OF THE COSMOS… attacking civilians across the various lands of Planet Aiden… Really fun to get the full body of MORDANTIX into panel #2.
The DISCIPLES OF UMEX take the battle to the lands of Aiden in the kingdom of GEMSPIRE! Fun to get these characters into action blowing things up!
