Megacon 2011 Commissions — Cap and Bucky

Captain America and Bucky. 2011. Watercolor on paper, 12 × 9″.

All right. I am officially taking a blog break for the rest of the year... for the most part. I'll be back on the 21st to remind everyone about Daredevil #7. I'm currently in my "method acting" phase, shying away from sunlight in order to identify with the Mole Man. In the meantime, I'll leave you with a commission from Megacon (that I finished at home). Enjoy the last vestiges of 2011!

Megacon 2011 Cosplay — Mortal Kombat

I may be taking a blog break here fairly soon. Deadlines are starting to get the best of me. In the meantime, here's a lovely couple from Megacon, and here's an interview with me at NYCC, courtesy of the Secret Identity Podcast.

Moooooooortaal Kooooombat! (breaks into dance music).

Wacky Reference Wednesday, No. 159

Amazing Spider-Man # 640, Page 19. 2010. 
Ink on Marvel board (with digital color), 11 × 17.25″.

Sometimes reference can actually impede the process, as in this page from One Moment in Time. I liked the bottom panel Spidey in my layout much better than what I ended up penciling and inking. In the end, it works just fine, I just prefer the former. I also took a photo for Spidey's left hand in the top panel. I always have trouble with that angle, mainly because that's the side I can't see.

In addition to my own photo reference, I used my trusty Google Street View to find a suitable setting in Forest Hills. Don't be shocked if you find yourself driving through Queens and see that exact neighborhood.
