MANTICORE



I was working on a lion design for the Spider-man cartoon and had spent all day learning to draw lions( I love my job ) and I just turned one of the sketches into a classic old manticore. All I had to do was add some bat wings and a scorpion tail. It was easy!

KOMODO


This is a fun monster I did for a friend's massive on-line game. Designing monsters is not my strong suit but I find you can come with some pretty cool characters by simply putting an animal head on a buff dude. It's cheap but effective.

This is an old Quest page inked by yours truly.  I inked it myself because of time and financial constraints but it's easy to see that my inking was functional at best.  My huge ego would normally keep me from showing off my weaknesses but I think it's important that skilled inkers, like Dan Panosian, Scott Kolins, and anyone who can actually use a brush, get the credit they are due.

Dwindling budgets and near-sighted editors are killing this wonderful art form and we should all lament it's passing. Photoshop is an amazing tool but I miss hand lettering and real finished inking. 
This is an old Hawkeye Annual page inked by my brilliant friend, Scott Kolins.  He is currently doing great work over at DC.  Check him out if you get a chance.

These are just some of the Marvel Sketch cards I'll be doing for the next series. I can't help myself, I love the Silver Samurai.

Old Supreme page

This is a Drink and Draw sketch, pencilled by me and inked with, sadly enough, a ball point pen. My friend and all around bad-ass, Dan Panosian colored it with markers and added the inevitable white-out. So far, this might be my new DND favorite!
