Comic show!

I had a table at a local comic show today, went pretty good! Talked to some nice people, sold a few books and sketches, enough for me to get a few things at the show, and a few groceries on the way home even.

I did a sketchbook drawing of Iron Man for a little girl, I hope it didn't make her cry. I don't do good under pressure! I also did some sketch cards below. I did a better version of the Wonder Woman, and a Wolverine that got bought. I gave an Iron Man to a 5-year-old boy who was with a fellow vendor. He said it was him in his Iron Man suit. Good enough!

Got to meet and talk to Eric Adams who does Lackluster World. I was pretty impressed, and laughed out loud reading it there. I finished #1 at the show and had to get #2. It's not for easily offended religious types (language, indecent acts with a clown, extreme fundamentalism).

page 3

Hey, that wasn't too bad! 2 weeks, right? I know it'll take longer to get the next one, so hang in there!

Also, you didn't miss page 2. 1 was actually page 1 and 2 of print, so It's easier for me to keep with that numbering.

Used ink brush for the characters, ink wash for shades & backgrounds. I tried a paper towel dipped in white and black ink for the bg's.

New style for the lettering. Let me know how you like it.

Children of Light 3 page 1

Here it is! Pages of Children of Light #3 will be published here as they're completed. Something cool I'll be doing again is inviting other artists to join the fun, so soon we'll be seeing some good stuff! Page 2 will be done in hopefully a week or so, no more than 2. Ok, 3 at the most. I'll try for 1.

I only sketched this one out before inking. Used a lot of different things here: brush marker, brush & ink, sharpie, light ink wash, digital touch up with Gimp.

marker test

I found these markers someone gave me a few years ago, and never used, made by Eberhard Faber. I pulled out the gray tones selection after buying 1 at the art store the other day, and gave em a spin. I like the way they blend, you almost can't tell it's marker. I drew a sketchy face at top, and the blob at the bottom wasn't meant to look like a beard, but there it is.
