Mikey! 
I really do love the new cartoon, the art style and take on the characters in particular. It’s nice to see the Turtles both acting like kids/teens as well as some differentiation in design other then a weapon and colored headband.
Sorry none of these are in color. I don’t have a lot of time on my hands with work right now but I’m having a blast sketching these up in the mornings.

: Three Plane-Compositions

Remember how, when I posted that guide to spotting tangents, I said that lesson two would be coming in a few days? Well, that was last October. Sorry. I’ve been REALLY busy.

Anyway, here’s a second lesson, one on three-plane composition.

If you’ve ever taken an art class, and likely if…

After months of waiting the origin of Proto Man finally arrives in Mega Man #17 out in comic shops this Wednesday! I really enjoyed working on these issues and hope I get another chance to jump in to the Mega Man Universe soon. You can see a full 5 page preview HERE!

And here are the original pencils for the preview just so you can see how it all began!

Just know that issue 18 will close out this awesome chapter in Archie Mega Man history and boy is it a doozy. Ian Flynn really brought his A game, so make sure to grab the first part!

And drop by the store page to grab a commission or art from Mega Man 05-08! ;)

Store Sale!

It’s been a crazy two months as Jil and I had our first baby, Liam, a month earlier than planned! He came out super healthy for being a late pre term so there were zero complications. But his early arrival got in the way of some jobs and deadlines that needed to be taken care of right around that time and I needed to back out of them. Soon after, one of our cars went down for the count needing a bit of an overhaul to get it back on the road again and is still sitting in the shop til I can raise some quick cash.

I’m also hard at work on my long working project Winter Warriors! This is my other baby at the moment and other exciting work(Mega Man, and a LOT of other stuff) made me have to really take a break from it for a bit. I’m eager to work on this a lot more full time than I have been able to, so if I’m able to rack up enough page sales and commission work I can make sure this book sees the light of day a lot faster.

So it’s time for a fire sale! I’ve updated the store page with info on original Mega Man pages and commission information with knocked down prices on quite a few pages and pre-made 9x12 pin ups that I’ve been unable to sell at shows. So please stop by and check it out, buy something, or maybe pass along a link to someone else who might be interested!
