Angel Lite commission

An Angel Lite commission.

Okay, at this point, I’m beginning to suspect that the guys over at Angel Lite know about my aversion to pointy masks and hair – it’s a wierd thing that turned me off to Marvel comics and X-Men in specific when I was growing up. As cool as I think this character looks, they KEEP MAKING ME DRAW THESE POINTY MASKS!

Jack

Jack is a fairly blatant Gambit rip off, with a little twist on the powers. I’m a fan of this style though. Grifter is another Gambit rip-off and I love the character. Knightsabre is a far less successful stab at that type, but it’s a model that’s proven, and this makes a nice companion piece to that Dice character I did last month.

Dice

I’m not sure I’m feeling Dice here. I don’t really engage with the concept, but he’s just half of a pair, so maybe I’ll get it more when I do the next one…

Knott Dead Yet

commissions

We’re celebrating the rturn of the Walking dead with a little piece I did on the behalf of James T Quirk over at Cap’n Quirk’s Nerd Emporium. The idea is what if the Walking Dead happened in Mayberry? It’s dound south enough – actually not that far from Georgia…

We think it would go a bit like this…..

Better make that one bullet count Barney….

All I can say here is she kind of reminds me of Madame Masque in X-Men. I believe it’s a purpleish color scheme….

The idea here was to kind of combine Cheetara from Thundercats and Scarlett from G.I. Joe. Possibly one of the strangest mixtures I’ve ever tried. I’m not sure if she’s a hero or villian, but I definitely went into it with a distinctively villainous attitude.

We got into some creepier characters this time around. This guy was originally envisioned as a Spawn influence, but  I wanted more diabolical influences. I like the blades at the end of the chains -a difficult decision, wasn’t sure how to top those appendages off…

Avengers of OZ

commissions

This started out as a costume design- an extension of Iron Man, but  I don’t think I’ll ever get to it. Still, the idea intrigues me and if I could get a few more together on it I think I’d like to explore it further.

When the guys over at Angel Lite comission me to design a Character’s look, I don’t always get a lot of information. Dave Rorthschiller creates a lot of the character story and personality while handing over the look to me, citeing influences and costume ideas. This character has a very mystic feel to me, like an older Corwin from Zelazny’s Amber series. I like him. I remember having a lot of fun on this batch of characters.

Tub of Terror pitch

commissions So, my friend Angelique was throwing around an idea for a terrible movie, and the more I heard of it, the more I though this really should be done up as a Tub of Terror comic. Even though Violent Blue is over,  I still had the templates and threw this together as a kind of back-handed pitch.13062295_1166506843393737_1631142334182346014_n
