Double Page X-Men Avengers Commission

 Well, I've recently finished up the Inks over Mike Lilly on that oversized Antony & Cleopatra Graphic Novel and have seen some of the colored pages which look awesome. (Nice job Wilson) Among another little unmentionable job I had to fit in, I've finally caught up on a big chunk of work. But before starting my next job, which is already a few weeks beyond my intended starting date, I needed to get a good studio cleaning (next post) and one last commission I've had on my list that I'd intended for late summer.
  So here it is, a little late but it always feels so good to get these done.

By request: X-Men vs Avengers, in pencil.

How-To #4; CECE Promo Card #4

Monday, 1:00 PM

 Lunch was good, lots of leftovers from the Mexican themed party we had over the weekend.

... And I decided to go with Card "A". The main reasons were; even though the action in B was better, the figure looked a bit out of control and didn't quite fit with Shards character. Card A's figure being more in control with a steady stance felt more right. The flow of the chain whip in card A also felt better and less crowded than it is in card B. On top of all that, lately, in honor of Frazetta's passing, I've been meaning to do a piece where the main subject had their back to the camera. (something he did often) Seeing as how I already have pics of shards face I thought this would be a good time to switch things up.

  What I did was take the rough in Photoshop and add it to one of my Trading Card masters that has all the measurements and crop marks all ready worked out. Here I can adjust the piece, move the figure around a bit, adjust the size or whatever. I then turn the dark pencil lines into a very light Blueline drawing and print the whole thing out on good paper. This is where I go at it with some tight pencils and figure out the little details.

I was having a bitch of a time with the dead (Ogre's?) left hand and redrew that thing over and over. I finally broke out the camera and took a ref photo to make it easier on myself. Now that I have it tight enough and to a point where I'm happy with it, I'll move on to the next stage.

Casual Friday #24 / 2nd Anniversary

I just noticed the other day that this week is the second anniversary of The Scribbler.  So, I thought I'd do a Casual Friday just for the occasion.
 Not sure what I'm saying with this piece, it was the first thing that came to mind.

It's tentatively titled:
"Happy 2nd, bub."

But a few more seem to be coming to mind...
"Can't believe your still at it."
"Happy 2 years. Here, pick which one I liked better."
"Good thing you didn't draw me after only one year."

...any more?

Spider-man Venom Commission Update

Back in April, I posted a bunch of Commissions I did for the Boston ComicCon. One was a 5 x 10 pencil sketch of Venom v Spider-man (shown below). It was a single panel as part of a jam page this guy was putting together and getting various artists to contribute to. He got Norman Lee to ink my panel. Norm got around to sending me a scan of it after he was done and I thought I'd share it.
 So here they are, penciled and inked.

Nice to see it all cleaned up without my scribbling all over it.
Thanks Norm!

Another short and sweet.
