Old sketch revisited

I always liked this drawing, so decided to revisit it and paint it up mainly in Corel painter and some photoshop. It gave me an opportunity to familiarize myself with some of painters brushes. This guy was originally drawn in ball point pen, then scanned in and painted. He was influenced by the Aliens in the Disney cartoon; Lilo and Stitch. I also gave him a Stormtrooper belt buckle. Guess who's side he's on.

Rocky Balboa

You gotta love Rocky. These movies made me want to learn how to box. I had a good time with this one. The shapes evolved quite a bit as I rendered it from sketch to color. I hope you like it.

Book Cover

This is a book cover I was commissioned to do for my good friend Don Rogers. I have been working with Don for a few years now, designing characters for his Everest Swift stories. He is working on a website for his Tin-Man entertainment brand, I will give you more on that as it develops. For now if you are interested in getting a signed copy of this book you can contact Don Rogers at his email :
sleeves00@hotmail.com
The first is a prelim drawing sent to the client for approval. I usually do a bunch of thumbnails first, then decide on which thumbnail works best for the story, and if I feel the composition is good.

Once the client approves the mock-up, I can clean up the pencils, ink them, and finally Color and add the text.
Hope you like it.

Don Corleone

I'm a huge fan of the Godfather movies and also of Francis Ford Coppola and Marlon Brando. I wanted to do a Godfather caricature for awhile now, and just never got around to it, till now. I don't really consider myself a caricature artist, but I enjoy doing them. It's a great learning process. Caricature allows you to exploit and abstract shapes, practice tonal values, and exaggerate forms. All the while having fun with your subject matter. Here are some step by step progression shots.
