Eye Candy Of Marvel 70th Artist Proofs.

Just thought I would take a few minutes and chime in with something for you to look at. Here are some of the Artist Proofs I did over the past year or 2 for the Marvel 70th card set. (Easy to recognize with the dates in the upper left hand corner) It's just a little something to hold you over until I can start posting some of the goings on in and outside the studio. And I thought this might wet your appitite for the upcoming Marvel: Greatest Heroes set.

Marvel Dangerous Divas Artist Proofs Now Available

I did finally get in my Artist's proof blanks in last week for the Dangerous Divas set and I'm now taking orders and starting to fill in slots. Below is the breakdown of prices and what's offered. Although all of the cards I did for the set are puzzles, I'm offering these up individually. If you want a puzzle, you'll have to ask for it.

(These prices are for full color, just pencils or inks would be cheaper)

Base cost, 1 character: $225 
Each additional character: +$20
Puzzle Cards: +$20 for each card in the puzzle.
I'm always open to other special requests and all is negotiable.

You can contact me directly at (email) artwork@warrenmartineck.com to ask any questions or to reserve your spot(s) while they're available. First come first served. ETA for getting these finished and sent out is within 3 weeks. (although I'm shooting for less than 2 weeks)

I will update this posting as slots fill up. 




Update: (4/19) Almost all slots filled. Only 2 left 

Last Update (4/19) All slots filled up. No more left.

Marvel 70th Artist's Proofs Pre-Order Open (Updated 5/10)

I've received word on how many Artist's Proofs I will be getting for the Marvel 70th Anniversary set and I am taking pre-orders now and filling up the slots. I'll be getting more than usual so there's more slots open and the price will be more reasonable than past sets and is as follows:
(These prices are for full color, just pencils or inks would be cheaper)

Base cost, 1 character: $225
Each additional character: +$20
Puzzle Cards: +$20 for each card.
Other special requests negotiable.

You can contact me directly at artwork@warrenmartineck.com to ask any questions or to reserve your spot while they're available.

I should be getting these within the next week or so and would start on the list shortly thereafter.

Whatever you order for a subject on your AP, know that the only requirement is that the card will have a corresponding year on it as I did on all the regular cards in the set. You can go here to this posting where i have them posted to see more details.



UPDATE 5/3: Slots filled quick over the weekend, only a few left. 
UPDATE 5/4: All slots are now filled, thanks everyone!
UPDATE 5/6: I have a new open slot as of today! Get it while it's open!

JLA Artist's Proof Sketch Cards / A Call For Subject Matter

JLA Artist's Proof Sketch Cards
I thought I would post some Artists proof Sketch Cards I did from the recently released Justice League Archives set. For those of you that don't know what an Artist Proof card is, heres a brief explanation. 
Many card companies now give to their sketch card artists a type of bonus in the form of either a "returned card" or "Artist's Proof' card. A returned card is a finished sketch card from a set, returned to the artist so they can sell, keep, or do whatever with it. An Artist's Proof card is a separate blank card with special printing or with "Artist's Proof" printed on the back, given to the artist so they can sell, keep, or do whatever with it. It being blank, the artist can draw whatever he wants on it or be commissioned to do a specific subject. Though they usually have to be approved by the company before being sold. 

Here are a few JLA Artist's Proof cards I've done recently. The first is of a certain GL Guy Gardner mistakingly blocking the path of an enraged Big Barda. Not a good idea.

The second is one of the few puzzle AP's I've ever done of some of the members of the JLA and the JSA attacking one of their favorite villains, Starro. 

These JLA Artist's proofs don't have any special printing on them, we were just given regular blanks.
I do have a few AP's still available if anyone would be interested, just contact me. 

Pathetic Call For Direction
   I've been a busy boy lately with a few commissions kicking around and penciling a fully rendered comic. When I get deep into work like I am now and it becomes a slow news time, I sometimes find I have very little imagination for other things... like what to post on my Blog. Seriously, (pointing to head) there's nothing going on up here! I do so much better when asked a direct question or whatever. 

 I know Casual Friday was a favorite among many of you, but until I get back on or ahead of schedule, I've put that on hold for a bit. 
So, if there is anything any of you guys would be interested in me talking about, posting, things you'd rather be reading about here, artwork, how to's,  my take on life, whatever. Let me know here, or email me.
