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).

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.

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.

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.
