The title of this category pretty much says it all.
You will find all sorts of ladies here, pretty ones, ugly ones, weird ones, and REALLY weird ones. There are definitely naked ones here, so don't say I didn't warn you!
A menagerie of all kinds of critters. I've broken this down into sub-categories to make it easier to find things.
Most sketches here are original creations but there are some things based on existing properties, such as Dungeons and Dragons, or famous movie monsters.
Here you will find sketches with various subject matter but all of them have a more cartoonish style to them than what you will find in the other categories.
You will also find other sketches for non-character illustrations, such as custom type, ornimantation, and logo designs.
This section is for ideas and concepts for specific characters in projects I am working on. Some are graphic novels I would like to produce, and others are character designs for films I am or have bee, involved with.
Characters for Personal Graphic Novel
As a child, dinosaurs led me to Godzilla, then to dragons, and back again.
The dinosaurs here are not scientifically accurate and in many cases are completely made up, with no basis in fact. For this reason I group them into this categoy. I really can't tell you where a dinosaur ends and a dragon begins with half of these sketches.
You will also find a few prehistoric critters in here because I didn't know where else to fit them in.
As for Godzilla, well, these are my interpetations of him, not really the traditional Japanese or Hollywood looks.
This is a collection of various men... Not really any nudes in here. Hey, what can I say, given the choice, I would rather draw boobies... and yes, I am three years old.
This category is sketches based on movie properties and in some cases how I would re-envision them. For the most part it is all "Star Wars" except for the first one, which is Marty Feldmen from "Young Frankenstien"
I've collected comic books since I was but a wee-little boy and have always loved them. Like so many illustrators today, I learned how to draw by drawing our favorite superheroes and trying to mimic the style of our favorite comic book artists.
I was always drawn to the Marvel Universe, especially Spider-Man and the X-Men, but there were some chosen few DC heroes that I followed.
As I grew up and matured as an artist I came to a sad realization... I hated doing sequential art. It was OK for a few pages but the idea of doing the same characters, issue after issue horrified me. Not to mention I had difficulty in keeping my style consistent.
One thing that I had started doing back in high school was to begin re-imagining the characters based on how I would design them if I was asked to create them from scratch, just like Ditka and Kirby did. This has become commonplace now, with the Ultimate Universe at Marvel and at DC with the Crisis titles.
I don't read as many comic books any more. Some have gone so far off the reservation I can't get into them. Other characters are so screwed up I feel like I'm seeing a childhood friend who has pissed his life away and is waiting to die in a drug induced haze...It just makes you feel sad.
In some cases, I've created/modified a character in the way I saw as a logical evolution of that character based on an event, such as Marvel's Civil War... In these cases I will try to note the event and my rationale for the changes.
Oh, and by the way, Peter Parker is Spider-Man and every one knows it now... No, wait, he's married to MJ... no, that's not right either... He's a clone... Oh F**K it.
This is a collection of characters that don't really fit anywhere else.
Some Robots and Mechanical doo-hickeys.
Locked in here are a variety of the undead creatures. Some are moist and juicy; others, not so much. But all are chock-full of that crunchy zombie goodness we all love.
