Figured I would have gotten tired of skulls by now, but… nope.

I saw some pretty cool pottery glazes at the annual exhibit at my University this year, and I’ve been doing more Court of the Dead related work for Sideshow, and that’s how this happened. Entirely random, just for the hell of it. Might explore the concept further though, I feel like it’s got potential for some neat (albeit merely decorative/festive) armor.

Check out the line-up they had at this year’s San Diego Comic Con: Court of the Dead.

Another look at the print that Kris Anka and I did for this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Done as a kind of companion piece for an earlier print.

Good times!

A panel from my comic project “Bombface”, that I’m currently working on.

Re-uploading this, cause I wasn’t aware that integrating an image into a text answer, on Tumblr, causes it to be re-sized. Sorry about that.

just wanted to drop by and say the 'personal project' in your post looks amazing and i hope you finish it

A

Thank you very much! I definitely will finish it, but it’s still going to take some time. I’ll be sure to post updates every now and again though! In fact here’s a panel:

A big thanks to all the new (and also previous) followers! Woke up to more notes than I’m used to today, a very pleasant surprise. 

Here’s another development sketch for my comic project “Bombface”. Although this was also kind of just for fun, since the development phase is mostly finished. Working on actual pages right now, and will continue to do so for quite some time.

I’ll be sure to post more updates, but I also don’t want to spoil too much too soon. Thanks again!

Finally getting around to doing some inks for this project. Maybe I will actually get it done before I die!
Sketched these out in Photoshop, then printed them on A3 paper and did the inking with a Pentel FP10 (love that thing).  Finally getting around to doing some inks for this project. Maybe I will actually get it done before I die!

Random doodle that got cut short due to me being a dumb-ass and accidentally saving over the PSD at low resolution. At least I got some progress shots out of it.

Anonymous asked:

Aside from original art that you come up with what would say is your favorite kind of art to do? like do you prefer the comic stuff (Batman, Joker, etc.) more than other art or do you prefer doing art based on Movie/TV characters more or??

A

There’s no clear winner in terms of subject matter or genre there. Currently, whatever I’m allowed to run wild with is what I will probably enjoy the most. 

When portraying existing characters, there are certain limitations you have to adhere to, otherwise it becomes a different character (duh). Sometimes, that’s precisely the joy of the portrayal. You get to pick an archetype and really try to do it justice. But in terms of where I’m at creatively right now, I like having some liberties.

So I enjoy somewhat ambiguous characters, because they are easier to toy with. Although I am also drawn towards the maniacal, the unhinged characters, because that’s something I rarely get to experience in real life. And ultimately, I’ll go for whichever character Sideshow Collectibles has lined up, that I’m interested in. Or that they throw at me, because money.

I feel like I’m pretty damn fortunate with Sideshow. They give me a fair amount of creative freedom and they have a vast, constant stream of characters to choose from. I like to keep my options open!

Is there a Snake Eyes Sideshow Art? I love the ones you did but can't find Snake Eyes. He's the best!

A

Sorry to say, there isn’t, at least not by me. There might be one in the future, but no such plans exist as of yet. I was only asked to work on the GI Joe villains (also I’m not even sure if the Snake Eyes they offer for sale is part of the same line).

Thanks though! Glad you like the art!
