Oracle Tribute

This is my humble tribute to Barbara Gordon's coolest role. There are tons of batgirls and ever more costumed kids that support Batman but only one of them can do it from air conditioned comfort and be more helpful than most.

Having fun with the ladies of DC

This is a 2 fold  exercise for me: I haven't drawn any pin up style pretty ladies lately and I got to play with the texture patterns I built in AI.

Zatanna's Fishnets and Barda's Scales were all built as vector swatch patterns. I added them and oriented them the way I wanted. When I colored and shaded the characters in Photoshop I added the larger shadows and highlights to give it alsmost a 3d effect without taking out out of the image.

Power man and Jewel in Love!

Hi Guys,

This piece is part of The latest (and I do mean late) Line is Drawn Reader Gallery on CBR.

I've always been partial to Luke and Jessica. It's just something quick and fun. I also find it cool because they remind me of my in laws.

Stay Puft!

Sorry for all the blog neglect! I just could resist posting the finished version of old mist Puft for the blogusphere to see. This is a mix of vector and and pixel painting. The entire character is vector with the painted background.

I had tons of fun designing the tattoos and figureing out cool references to cover him in. The idea here is jail house ink and what he might get done after they GB's throw him in the tank.

FInal Xmen Angel Design

This is my finished redesign of Angel from the X Men for Superhero of the Month! When I think about any of the original core X-characters I go back to the beginning design wise. Their costumes should have a uniform fee to them. I could easily see this working with all the originals.
It’s also, at it’s core, a superhero suit none of that extemporaneous seams business or zippers and bells and whistles being used these days.

Angels in the redesign feild

These are some rough concepts for the Angel redesign for Superhero of the month.
Angel's had a ton of costumes over the years so there wasn't one theme to latch onto.
Design wise the thing I wanted o do most was stick with his classic X Men blue and gold scheme. everything else was up for grabs.
