Spider-Man & Wolverine


     Below are images I threw together and particularly enjoyed drawing. I always enjoyed drawing Spider-Man, and my Wolverines have a somewhat "Cartoon" like external feel, but always fun to draw. I will keep this short and sweet, let me know what ya think!

Again, like usual, the colors were done by the Fabulous James Anderson, and I think he did pretty good. Thanks for dropping in, like, share & comment if you enjoyed this piece!

Some Photoshop work...

Hey there,

    As school has just started, I have less time and I hope to have that resolved in the coming months, but in the meantime I will be doing some more Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop work. During the course of the last 6 months, I took a Photoshop class and these are some of the works I was able to produce. Understand this is very basic and I am sure I will look back in a year and gasp at the crudeness of it, but I am happy with how I have progressed and thought you would enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by!

More work to come, but I thought this was something you would enjoy seeing. Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping in!

TMNT Raphael


    Again, I want to showcase some TMNT stuff. Specifically Raphael. Raphael seems to be the "Anti-Hero" among the TMNT crowd. Anti social, and seemingly volatile. For this reason, many people relate with the character because people always look for a righteous character to cheer on.

Right, Wrong or Indifferent Raphael wields some pretty impressive Hardware utilizing the Sai as a weapon. The Sai's origin is from the Trident pole like weapon called the "Trisula" in the Ancient Southern Asian Cultures.

This weapon has many variations. Short, Long and everything in between you will find it changing lengths depending on the artist, but needless to say it is an effective "Attitude Adjuster" and Raphael will use it whenever he gets the chance to stomp the bad guys.

TMNT were created by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird. The colored version of my work was completed by James Anderson, and I think he did a wonderful job. Some of his best work in my personal opinion. We hope you enjoy. Thanks for dropping in, and keep coming back.

I have some Adobe Illustrator classes coming up this semester, so I will continue to showcasing some older work here to continue re-populating the content since the move to blogger. Enjoy!

X-O Manowar (Retro Concept)


     Last year as I was getting my feet wet, Valiant Comics rose from the ashes and created a firestorm on the Internet with news of bringing long gone characters back to the limelight, I chose to make a piece or two for them. That being said, I chose to do a neo/retro mix to help mix it up because at the time, no one knew if or how they were going to redesign his costume. The new version of X-O was designed by Jelena Kevic Djurdjevic.

I think the redesign was wonderful and wished I would have done the new version, but hey, everyone loves something original from time to time. That all being said, I will shut up and show you what I came up with with the assistance from James Anderson again. His colors made it shine and to this day, the colors made all the difference. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this post, keep coming back as I am still repopulating this site with much of my older work as daily posts until I get caught back up.

Ms. Marvel

Welcome back,

     Once again I post random artwork from throughout my portfolio in an attempt to repopulate my website since migrating over to the blogger platform. I admit, blogger gives me much more leverage as to reaching my audience and has proven very helpful in learning where to advertise and monetize on my artworks distribution. Money isn't my main goal, but hell, I guess as an artist if you can make even a few cents on everyone enjoying your work you better take it.

That being said, below I have showcased Ms. Marvel. This character is beloved around the world of Marvel, Avengers lovers as well as Cosplay and nerd/nerdettes in the comic arena. Geekdom wouldn't be the same without this wonderful character being there for some eye candy IMHO. So without further ado, I present, Ms. Marvel...

As usual, James Anderson was the colorist and I think he did a wonderful job once again. The textured background got lots of attention from throughout the DevianART crowd and to this day it seems to be on of my highest rated images.

James and I are proud to be able to present images like this to you and hope you keep returning to see more. Thanks for dropping in, and please feel free to like and share any of our work with your friends, family and anyone you think would be interested to help us get some exposure for our hard work in the Comics Industry!
