Daily Sketch - Snake Eyes vs Wolverine!....Post #800

For my 800th post, I wanted to make sure this one was a big enough piece. This commission was a LONG time coming. I still have a few of these I really need to get done. This was a blast to work on, it was X-Men and GI Joe that got me into comics years ago, and are still two of my favorite properties. So this commission was a fantastic fan moment for me.

If this is a "who would win" conversation...I think it's inevitable that Wolverine does. Snake Eyes is easily the better fighter, but with Wolverine's healing factor, SE just can't hurt him as fast as Wolverine can heal. Still it would be a fight for the ages.

Daily Sketch: Storm Shadow...

Here's a long overdue sketch for Tim Layne.  He purchased my sketchbooks from a long while back and I needed to do some sketches on the inside for him. Trying my best to work through my lists of commissions to do, inevitably I'll get to them all. Maybe here's a bit of proof that no one is forgotten and that they will ALL get done.

Plus, you can't beat getting to draw Storm Shadow! Any kind of marker sketches never look as good when you scan them in. Mostly because when you clean up the drawing you have to fiddle with the contrast to make the blacks darker and the white areas whiter. So generally you break up the "smooth-ness" of the marker rendering by doing this also. Needless to say, the actual original sketch is of a smoother/better quality than this quick scan and clean up job.

Daily Sketch: Nightwing and Robin - Atkins Family Team up

This was a fun commission. A friend in Chicago commissioned my brother Brian and I to do this cover. He wanted a Nightwing and a Robin, and didn't really mind what version. Brian and I are both huge fans of the Young Justice show and the character designer who worked on it. So since we had our choice, we went with that design.

I've only had a few chances to work with my brother on a commission or professionally, but it's always so awesome. You can see Brian's work here on his Deviant Art gallery.


 He's been busy with commissions and he's drawing a book for Comics Experience that'll be published by IDW soon!

Daily Sketch: Beachhead...

Another cover sketch back from NYCC last year. Busy scene, but fun to do for sure! I always dig drawing vipers. I'd like to put together a sketchbook or do a theme on my blog of all the cobra troopers and vipers.
