Martineck Marvel Overpower Cards

 Moving right along into the next multi - requested checklist, here are all the cards I drew for the various Marvel Overpower card sets. They were all base cards and I believe I have them all accounted for. If anyone thinks I missed one or screwed the list up in anyway, please let me know. 
  I don't know if there is a resurgence going on for these sets or what, but I've been contacted a lot about these cards recently. Along with which ones I did, I've also been asked if I have the originals and if I'd be willing to sell any. I know I have many of the originals. Some I've already sold here and there, some were "lifted" from Fleers offices and I never got them back, and I know of one that was lost in a fire. As for selling them, yes, I would be up for that. But, I am in the middle of a fairly tight deadline and probably won't be getting around to organizing that until I'm done in a few weeks. I will post here when I start making them available.

Thanks everyone for the interest and heres my Overpower checklist.

Marvel Dangerous Divas Card set

  Ok, now that it has been officially announced, I can finally say yes, I'm working on the Marvel Dangerous Divas card set and doing up an undisclosed amount of full color Sketch cards. Rittenhouse has this scheduled for a March 2011 release and it looks like my cards will be release as 18-case incentives.

  If you haven't noticed, I've really cut back on the amount of card sets I've been working on. I also try to come up with something different for each new set I do work on. (which is no small feat) For this set all the sketch cards I'm doing will be 2-card puzzles that will include at least 2 characters for each puzzle. It's working out really cool and I'm loving the expanded work area. Plus, from what I understand, Rittenhouse will be including both pieces of each puzzle in one Archive box so you won't need to try and track down the other half and be all disappointed when you can't. On top of all that there will be an additional twist involved with the puzzles. More on that teaser... probably around release time.

 back to work....

I've begun My Backlog Of Commissions

  Yes, It's true! I know many of you probably can't believe it, but it's really true. My apologies to all that have had to wait longer than I hoped or when I said I could get to them. Stuff always seems to come up that your not expecting and always seems to take longer to get done that you would like.  I really need to stop giving quotes as to when the commissions will get done, that's a guarantee I won't be able to do it by the time I say.
  Anyway, here's one from the list I can show, an Uncut Silver Age of the Silver Surfer and Family. It's kind of a snapshot of Norrins troubled and tragic past. Featuring Elmar-Radd, Jartan-Radd, Fennan-Radd, and Shalla-Bal with his home planet Zenn-La in the background.

 More to come as I get them done and get approvals.

CECE Promo Card #8... and Finished.

Well, here it is. All finished, finally.
Yes, that took forever. That'll happen when your learning as you go but, I don't think it came out so bad. I would like to have had more time to fuss around with it, like tones and color variations to help pop the main character more, but maybe next time.
 I'll probably have prints made up for this as well to bring to the con and have up for sale in a few weeks.

It's been fun

CECE Promo Card #6

Tuesday 11:00 am
  Ok, I was a little slow getting up today but I've got the ball moving and I've got  a few good hours in already.

I remembered Shard has a big Scorpion tattoo on his back so I designed and drew that separately and I'll add it as an overly later on in the color process. This is only my second or third thing I've colored on the computer and a few months since the last one, so your not getting any Artist's tips from me on this one. I've got my How to Color Comics reference book open to help remind me how to do this correctly and speed up the process.
Up to this point I've got all my main Flats in and I'm ready to continue on.

 I would love to have used this piece as a practice subject to learn how to digitally paint, as that's what I'm really interested in learning. But this has to ship out at some point.
