I recently subscribed to Marvel's Digital Comics Unlimited, in which thousands of back issues are available for reading online, and I came across a cool character named Gravity. As his name implies, he can control gravity. I thought I'd try my hand at drawing him. Actually, I'm been thinking about redrawing some of the pages I've seen and using them as submission samples.
The second piece is a recent commission of Tarzan and Jane that I've censored.

Here's my latest progress on the gryphon commission. I've added a little background, and I've added some detail the the two fallen gryphons. I'm probably going to add a sun behind the last one standing because I have a circle template that is just the right size.

Supergirl is very popular in the original art listings on Ebay, and here's another one of my own renditions. I took the Clark Kent approach, but I don't think Kara has a secret identity in the comics, since I rarely pick up a DC comic anymore. Sorry, DC.

X-23 (for those out of the loop) is the clone of Wolverine (for those who don't know who Wolverine is, I can't do anything for you). In current continuity she's only
15. In this drawing, however, I've aged her about 3 or 4 years to make the outfit a little more leagal in forty-eight states. It's currently for sale on Ebay for those interested. Just click the link to the left under my favorite places to visit.
This is a drawing I was commissioned to do by Jonathan Faraci featuring his character Redline (all rights reserved). Unfortunately I still don't have a printer large enough to accommodate the original 11 X 17" size, so I'm having to post it in two pieces as I've done with a few others. I'm hoping I can get Jonathan (assuming he has a scanner large enough) to send me a full scan if possible once he receives the package.

I started this piece about a month ago and have been working on it in very small segments. The buyer has been unbelievably patient, for which I'm grateful. This one's almost finished. After this I'll be working on a centaur drawing for him. I've really enjoyed the opportunity to draw new things.

I did this piece from a little bit of photo reference from H Magazine, a Spanish language Maxim clone I found on the magazine rack at the store where I work. I'm trying to become more adept at drawing the female form, especially the face. Expect to see mroe pieces like this in the near future.

Well, after a month-long hiatus I'm back on the Ebay circuit. I had to take a little time off to get some commissions done. Research and past selling experience indicates that well known superheroines with exaggerated proportions and/or in provocative positions are the most in demand. Voila.

This Batman piece was done in 1996 when I was sixteen. It was a prolific era predating the beginning of my working career. For those who don't know, from mid 1998 to probably 1995 I didn't draw a lot. I got extremely rusty and have only recently gotten back into the swing of things.

This is a humorous piece featuring Kevin Ryan's Americana. This is the last of four recent commissions I did for Kevin. You can check his site out to read stories featuring Americana and other characters at www.kcryan.com.

This drawing was a cover I submitted for my high school's literary magazine senior year (1998). It was turned down because (and I'm paraphrasing my English teacher, who was the coordinator of the magazine) "it's too busy."
I'll leave that to you, the reader, to decide.

I felt like inking tonight, so I pulled a drawing out of my folder and started working on it. I haven't inked in a while because I quickly became disillusioned with the pen. This piece, however, was done with a cheap brush I cut down to a fine set of bristles. It was a breeze! I had more more fun inking the piece that I did drawing it!
The second piece is a nameless wolf girl I did for practice.

What a week! The commission requests have been rolling in at an alarming rate, which I'm extremely grateful to the universe for (insert cosmic deity of your choice for the word "universe"). This drawing is another piece of Kevin Ryan's Americana. Kevin has a website on the web where he publishes stories and commissions different artists to illustrate the main action point of each story. Once I get the URL for his site I'll post it along with the other commissions for his characters as I finish them.

For this commission, the buyer wanted this particular character eating and enjoying a piece of cheesecake in honor of her creator's birthday. Before I drew this I had never ever drawn someone holding a fork. It felt great to do something I'd never done before.
The other image captures a tender moment either pre- or post- coitus between Peter Parker and Mary Jane (censored, of course).

Here's the gist of this commission as per the instructions from the client:
"I'd like a drawing of my wife when she was in her teens, wearing a string bikini. Here's some reference photos of her face."
I nailed the facial likeness, but I made up the body, which was fine by him. He was so pleased with it that he wants more drawings of her in a mini-skirt and tube-top.

The hulk sketch you see here was done in late '05 while we were staying with relatives in Bosier City, La for the aftermath of hurricane Rita (the forgotten hurricane of 2005).
The second image is from a comic I was working on for a guy the same year. It ended up falling through for some reason.

Well, not sex per se.
I'd never drawn a naked woman in my life until I saw that there was a market for it. The first two pieces have been doctored up to adhere to Blogger.com standards of decency. The're currently up for auction on Ebay. The final two are some commissions I did for a guy about a month ago.
P.S. See? I'm posting a little more often!
