Red Lantern Vs. Video Game Queen.... I really do enjoy doing the battle images. I always keep it pretty neutral, not picking a side one way or the other, but the concepts are always fun to put together. Seeing a creature of rage go against someone who is very whimsical and playful is fun. I got to play with the colors in this too being that this is entirely done by hand, so pushing the paint around brought me on an interesting journey....
Expect to see more pieces like this from me.....

I am in the process of trying to get back to doing traditional media art and am proud to say this was completely done by hand. I have a fine arts background as well as wanting to do the commercial, comic styled art, so revisiting this style was very reinvigorating. I am not even close to where I want to be, but I am happy with the result..... Below is the finished piece..... now back to more practice!

One thing i will always love about Marvel Comics is how much they try and relate to the average man on the street. This team is a team that pretty much has proven themselves and got to break away from hat the typical Avengers were doing and were able to handle NYC and anything else that may need super hero assistance.... plus we actually got to enjoy seeing Heroes during their day to day too. Stuart Immonem's art didn't hurt either ;-)
The colors on this were a departure from my norm and instead of doing them myself as usual, I reached out to Danielle Alexis St. Pierre who has her beautiful art at http://dalexisstpierre.deviantart.com/ . She knocked these colors out for me and it's been a hit over on deviant art for me=] i wish I was as good as she=]

Kamen Rider Vs. Spider-man..... Kamen Rider is similar to the Power Rangers and has had many incarnations throughout the years. This incarnation is Kamen Rider, The First. Check wikipedia for more info.
This was commissioned to me at the Supermega Show and Comic extraveganza. It was nice to be asked to do something that is within my comfort zone yet off base as well to challenge me and bring out something in my work I have yet to do, i.e. so much movement and choreographing. I wanted to create a sense of balance and what better way of donig that than using the Ying &Yang motif.
If you are interested in getting a costume illustration done, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
