Force Beams and Playing Cards
This is a commission from Heroes Con that I just finished up. I've changed my official commissions policy by accepting work from home. I have been taking names, but I won't get to anything for months while I work on my new project. I'm not sure if I can say what it is yet, but I can say that it's not painted.
From now on, I'll only be doing inked comic art, reserving paints for covers and other smaller projects. The painted artwork is too precious and time intensive for what I want to do, which is to tell stories. I hope to color (digitally) my own inked work, but I won't have enough time with this first project. I should have some examples to show in a couple weeks.
Also, this is a head-sketch from the New York Comic Con that I never got around to posting. Now I have.
Next Week: I'm planning on taking an exhaustive look at my (now-obsolete) painting technique. In the midst of creating page 6 of Mythos: Captain America, I took extensive photos to document the entire process. I hope you will enjoy it.
