1982-Style X-Men - Back in 1982 I was given my first issue of Uncanny X-Men, issue number 155 ( http://www.comicvine.com/the-uncanny-x-men-first-blood/37-22027/ ). This is the team that starred in that issue. Having only ever really encountered Batman, Superman, The Incedible Hulk, and Spider-Man up to that point, these characters seemed totally strange and mystifying to my six-year-old brain (not to mention seeing a hero bleeding and dead looking on the cover!).
Oh, Canada! - This piece is a little tribute to Incredible Hulk number 181, wherein is the first appearance of Wolverine. Dig it.
Gojira! 2010 - So, I took a whack at updating Gojira (Godzilla) for 2010 while still keeping a lot of the old-school motifs of the big G. I kept the big eyes, anthropomorphic hands, lumpy scales, and general campiness while making him more of a theropod dinosaur. The original idea that Eiji Tsuburaya and Tomoyuki Tanaka settled on was a Tyrannosaurus chasis with Iguanodon hands and Stegosaurus dorsal plates (only after scrapping two other concepts). I plan on doing a more monstrous, less campy version later.
X-Men Re-Conceptions 01 - This is a re-imagining/re-conception of the early costume evolution of Wolverine. It goes from the First Canadian Superhero/Special Agent in Incredible Hulk 181, through the "All New, All Different" X-Men, to the "Brown & Orange" costume.
X-Characters in Scale - A few X-Men characters re-conceived and put next to each other in scale to each other. Fun stuff. I wanted to do Storm and Colossus too but didn't have the time.
A random strip I did, just because I like being silly. Don't ask me to make sense of it.
This a quick digital painting I did of the cartoon character He-Man. I just meant it as a practice exercise, but I liked the final product a lot. Little did I know that, just days after doing it, Lou Scheimer would die. Pretty damned sad.
I love Halloween! This year, I decided to do a special Halloween poster and it ended up being a tribute. The image is based on the song "Cypress Grove" by the band Clutch from their 2004 album, Blast Tyrant. Something unusual about this piece is that, when doing something this complex, I typically draw it out in pencil on paper, then scan the pencils to finish in Photoshop; this piece was composed, drawn, and colored entirely in Photoshop, from beginning to end.
Re-imagining of the vehicle mode of a popular shape shifting robot character from the 1980s. I based the form aesthetics on the 1979 Dome Zero, 1969 Dodge Charger, and 1971 Road Runner. I love exploring retro-futurism. 11.08.13
