Vesper WIP

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything due to some freelance branding and web work, so I figured I’d show you something I’m working on at the moment. I previously posted the sketch for this, but I have decided to digitally paint Vesper in two different styles.

Here is the WIP of style number 1.

Don Sketch Before Paint

I’ve been meaning to do some more portraits.
After finally watching the Mad Men season 6 finale I’ve decided to go with Don.

Paint to follow.


I’ve been neglecting adding new sketches to this blog as I post them all over other social media outlets…

So here is to me finally updating.

Beast: Project Rooftop’s Fan Art Friday

Project Rooftop, where cartoonists and illustrators redesign superhero costumes, has made a call for submissions for a segment called “Fan Art Friday.” I chose to go “classic” with a version of Beast that I grew up with from the 90’s cartoon. Rather than giving him a solid full body of blue hair, I took a cue from apes and thinned out the hair on his face, chest and stomach, and leaving his palms hair free. Throw in some trunks a little closer to his days without blue hair and you have my submission!

Batman may have the biggest wardrobe closet in all of superhero comics, but Marvel’s Beast seems to be the one that goes through the most transformation. With him recently evolving to a more ape-like look in the pages of All-New X-Men, we thought it time to celebrate the various incarnations of Dr. Henry McCoy in our next Fan-Art Friday.”


CCS: The Future, Far Far Away…

I was watching Star Wars and as Luke was cruising back home in his land speeder, Marty McFly riding his stolen hover-board came to mind. I thought about what might happen if Marty and Luke met. Luke would be the guy with the awesome car while Marty only had his little board. #hovercomplex

Anyways, this was a quick sketch of that encounter. More of a color study than anything.


Inspired by the lovely Mavilya Chubarova.

Fawn Dorr Mask Test

This is a quick test sketch of an old friend of mine from back home. Fawn is a talented and determined young athlete who has taken her skills to the professional level. (Check her out on twitter at here) After I had posted a number of my recent Character Chop Shop pieces, Fawn had asked me about doing a character portrait of her. I’ve been drawing superheroes for as long as I can remember so it seemed like a great project once she asked me to turn her into a superhero.

Stay tuned for the character sketch and final painting…

Character Chop Shop: Mayor Two-Face

So here is the last of this series for now: Mayor as Two Face.

Mayor already has two faces, so it was easy to see why I went this direction, but if he were to be Two-Face for Halloween, I think he would have to tear off half of his sad face and put it on his happy face. Give him a two sided suit and he’s good to go…


Character Chop Shop: Clayface Boogie

Today is Oogie Boogie as Clayface.

I figured if anyone were going to dress up as Clayface, they could make it easy on themselves by just dumping some mud over their body.
So I took this approach with Oogie and showed a little of his canvas body underneath that Georgia red clay.

Only one more to go for this series. I did think of alternates for each of these characters, but maybe those can just be a series of head-shots I do in a day.

Character Chop Shop: Finkelstein Freeze

Back to it. Today is Dr. Finkelstein as Mr. Freeze.
