Day 18- Captain America

Hey- I'm back from the KC show (we drove. So it seems like we were gone for a hundred years.) I'm headed up to WonderCon this weekend but I'll try not to miss a day. This time I'll be around computers.

The request for this one was actually, "A wacky Liefeld-esque CapAmerica" but, as most of my nerd friends know, I sort-of really like Rob Liefeld. Especially early Rob on Hawk and Dove and the real early New Mutants-- McFarlane inked Liefeld was my jam back in the day. Anyway, I couldn't in good conscience fuck on the guy as it's so in-vogue to do these days so here's Liefeld's Cap in my style-- Which is kind of 'wacky', I guess.

See you tomorrow with more.

Day 17- Jakita Wagner

The last sketch in my '3 by Ellis' series.

Also the last sketch for a few days- I'm going to Kansas City (Kansas City here I come) for the KC Planet Comicon. If you're in the area- swing on out and buy shit from me. If you're not in the area you can keep up with me on twitter-- I'll post up con sketches and updates from the road over there.

I'll be back in L.A. next week and I'll jump back into these first thing.

See you guys then.

Day 16- The Drummer

Here's the 2nd in the planetary series. One more tomorrow.

Day 15- Elijah Snow

Week 3 kicks off with some Planetary sketches. Hoping they get that final tpb out soon- I saw the HC at the shop last week and almost grabbed it.

Think I went too blue with this background, should've stayed monochromatic. Oh well- this is how we learn. That's why we fall down, Master Bruces.

Back tomorrow with more.

Day 14- Molly Hayes

This took way too long on a already too short day (it's almost 6?! Oh god!) I picked her because I figured she'd be super fast.

Oh well.

From the Runaways, I give you--

Week 3 starts tomorrow.

Day 13- Spider-Man

No time for anything super fancy today (or as people with regular jobs call it- 2 in the morning tomorrow.)

Just your run of the mill friendly neighborhood--

See ya'll tomorrow at some point.

Day 12- Warlock

I love the New Mutants.

Bill Sienkiewicz' run on the book changed my life. I loved Bob McLeod on the book and Brett Blevins and Art Adams and Rob Liefeld. And yet somehow, I think this is the first time I've ever drawn this guy.

Hopefully there's another request for him on the list- I want to do it again.

See y'all tomorrow.

Day 11- Iron Spider-Man

So on the request for this one it says, "Red Suit Spider-Man." I'm assuming he means this one because-- if you wanted the other Red Suit Spider-man, you'd just say Spider-Man. Right?

Day 10- Megatron

Even quicker one today. Here's the companion piece to that Optimus Prime from a few days ago.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Day 9- Fear Agent

Quick one today.
See you guys tomorrow.

Day 8- Wolverine, Kitty Pryde & Lockheed

This one took way too long. But it's a 2fer to start off week 2.

Hope you guys are digging the blog. If you like what you see, click follow or add me to your RSS readers or bookmark or whatever. I'm updating every day- so if you dig the art- it's worth checking back in often.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 7- Black Widow

Decided to go classic costume on this one rather than the new-latexy-shiny costume.

That's one week down. So far so good. I'll see you guys tomorrow for the start of week 2!

Day 6- Optimus Prime

Late night update today but here it is anyway- tomorrows will be earlier.

Day 5- Concrete

To the guy who Requested Paul Chadwick's Concrete, my storyboard deadlines would like to say thank you.

Day 4- Super Mario

Here's this one. Nice to get to draw a dude (Although yesterday's Wonderwoman was pretty manly- whoops!) -- I got a lot of requests for women and I always like to have some variety. Plus it's Mario! Star of the only video games I ever really gave a shit about.

SNES for life, son!

See you tomorrow!

Day 3- Wonder Woman

Here's Today's. Tomorrow I think I get to draw a guy... so that's something different to look forward to.

Also- Just so we're all on the same page- These are orders that I'm way late in finishing so until I get caught up, I'm not taking any new $6 commission requests. If you want to get art from me for the time being, you can email me with pricing questions or catch me at a con. (For upcoming con appearances, check out the main- site.)

Thanks again!

Day 2- Psylocke

Here we go- Day 2. So far so good.

See you tomorrow!

Day 1- Black Canary

Hey everybody- New blog. Same old mission. New tactic.

I'm forcing myself to get through these cards no matter how much other work I have. My foolish idea up until now has been to wait until I have a break in my schedule and then bang all of these sketches out in a row. Good/bad news is, I can't see a break in my schedule anytime soon. So I'm taking a different approach. To everyone waiting for their art- Thanks for your patience (or if you've run out of patience- thanks for not tracking me down and kicking my ass yet.)

Here's the first step on my artistic walk of shame...

Check back in tomorrow for more. Now- gotta get back to work.
