To celebrate the release of R. Kikuo Johnson's long-awaited 3rd book, we'll both be appearing in person at Green Apple Books (9th Ave.) this Wednesday, December 1st at 6 p.m. You can expect a barrage of hard-hitting questions from me, even harder-hitting questions from the audience, and the chance to get your books signed.

Just a quick post today: Martian Manhunter didn't change a whole lot from the Modern version. In fact, I can't even find any sketch layers in the PSD. Maybe I just started painting? The final pose isn't very different from my reference, so perhaps I was just winging it. I did do a quick ZBrush sculpt to get those brows just right, rendered in Marmoset Toolbag. The cape reference was actually for a different character, but I did refer to it occasionally.
