Daily Sketch - Baroness and Destro.....

This was a fun commission to do, I really enjoy the commissions that tell a story. This is a POV shot of someone doing a deal with Destro and Baroness. Baroness offering up the promised money in a case, while Destro carrying similar cases for the transaction, one of which hides a timed explosive.

That sounds about right for these two, typical M.A.R.S.  or Cobra business practices when it comes to arms dealing.  I have a few more commissions for this same guy, and am just as excited to get to them as well, lots of great description and ideas for illustrations.

I have a wide variety of people who commission me, some are very specific in what they want, and others leave it open for me to decide. I don't mind either way really. I feel a bit more pressure to "get it right" with those that have an exact idea in their mind of what it should be. Otherwise, I find them both typically fun to work on. I enjoy how different the process can be for either approach.

Baroness is one of those characters that has a very distinct look. I think I have gotten closer to getting that down over the years. There are still a few characters I'm working on nailing down to what I think is their iconic look, but with Baroness I think I'm pretty close.

Daily Sketch: Mutt and Junkyard - GI JOE...

This was a lot of fun to do, mostly because I always really enjoyed this character in the cartoons growing up, but I've also barely had a chance to draw these two. I think they were in one issue of the Joe run of the comics I worked on. But really it was a cameo, they weren't in it much.

I did this commission at Joe con, but never got a scan of it. Luckily the owner of the commission was willing to scan it in and send it over so everyone could see and enjoy it! Thanks again!

Daily Sketch: Scarlett Infiltrator...

I had posted this on my Facebook awhile back, but realized I hadn't ever put it up here on my blog. I did this commission a while back for NYCC. I was pulling an all nighter in the hotel lobby drawing this with another comic artist. It was a total blast drawing and talking all night long getting to know this guy.  This ended up being one of my favorite Scarlett pieces I've drawn! Lots of good memories.

The colors here are once again done by Simon Gough! I'm really looking forward to a chance to work with him on a regular book someday. Until then, I'll have to settle for his awesome commission work!

Daily Sketch: Sgt. Slaughter...

This was another commission from a while back and I thought I had posted the colors for this, but as it turns out I hadn't. So here you go, in all his Slaughter Glory! Colors by Simon Gough, pencils and inks by me.
 I think this was also the first time I had drawn B.A.T.S....well, what used to be BATS.

Daily Sketch: Flint Colors...

Here's one of my favorite Joes. He was one of the early figures I had as a kid, and I was a big fan of the cartoon growing up. I knew Duke seemed to be in charge in the cartoon, but I just remembered liking lady Jaye and Flint more. Now that I go back and watch the show, it's more obvious, the two characters just have WAY more screen time. For whatever reason, the attitude, the voice, the leadership, or just more screen time, I really dug this character.

I did the line art for this commission a while back, but as always Simon Gough has done a great job bringing it to life with the colors! Well done Si!

Also as an announcement I'll be making it back to Roll Out Roll Call, the GI JOE/Transformers convention this year in London, England! The show takes place over my birthday weekend in July. I'm already getting excited about it. I'll keep everyone posted on my convention schedule and what other shows I'll be doing this year soon.
