Update: Buy the giclee print here!
Thanks to my fellow Dallas-area artist Terry Parr I was recently inspired do a sexy pinup and decided to do a Tron 2 piece featuring Quorra. It took me a few days to get the colors right but I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out.
Detail shot below. Color holds abound!
And the finished piece. Click to super-size it!
Venom used to be one of my favorite villains, back when he was still a villain. He had so much potential as a sci-fi foe for Spider-Man but the 90’s comics craze saw him turn from brain-eating super villain to do-gooding anti-hero.
I enjoyed the maniacal, twisted, flesh eating Venom, and I miss him. So I used a bout of insomnia to finish the following pinup up Eddie Brock and your not-so-friendly neighborhood symbiote in all their sinister glory.
I’ve always enjoyed a look behind the process of my favorite artists and thought I’d share my current process with anyone who might be interested. Below is a 6 view cross-section of how I currently work on comic art and pinups.

Step 1: Roughs
I usually do super small roughs in a sketchbook or on printer paper. I’ve found working small in the beginning helps me keep my proportions in check and focus more on the shape, flow and composition of the piece. For this I wanted a classic action pose for Powerman and Iron Fist, so I did stand-alone figure shots and composited them for penciling.
So I did this little ditty of the always funky-fresh Powerman and Iron Fist for my boy Samax of GhettoManga fame.
It’ll appear in the upcoming issue of Ghetto Manga Quarterly.
I’ve been busy getting The Old Ones started and haven’t had much time to devote to the blog, but I have been working on some side pieces in between stints on the comic.
Here’s the first one, a colored version of last week’s Kick-Ass.
I’ve got a wicked Powerman/Iron Fist piece coming up next!
I’m up late tonight working on colors for my Shaman’s Stone short and thought I would share a little behind the scenes look into the coloring.
The Space-Gun crew was offered a chance to pick up a dropped ball on an anthology and as long as I can get these 10 pages colored by next weekend I’m good to go for issues one.
More details on the book once I’m closer to being completed and get the scoop for myself. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
