The funny thing is, I got carried away. REALLY carried away. The piece ended up in a position where it shouldn't be inked or colored, and a bunch of twitter buddies helped me keep it in its current state.
So thanks, and enjoy this sketch!

I drew this for a friend of mine over in the UK. Hope he enjoys it!

This was a fun piece. The limited amount of colors needed was also a great challenge. I wanted to keep with the gray tones and stray away from putting in bright colors, which I would normally use to fill the background with. Thankfully the negative white space worked well, and made the figure, and the foreground smoke pop out.
The first issue of the new storyline 'The Sinners', just shipped last week, and it features the return of Tracy Lawless (last seen in book 2, Lawless). The good news is that you needn't have to have read Lawless to get into this story. It tells you all you need to know about Tracy, and why he's in the position he's in right now.
Criminal: The Sinners is monthly, and costs $3.50. Aside from the comic story, there are articles included as well. Ed Brubaker writes, Sean Phillips illustrates, and Val Staples colors. Buy this book!

This is a jam piece that my brother and I had done for our sketch-drive. My brother drew the Grey Gargoyle, I drew Thor. This was done in less than two hours, and the only thing difficult about it is figuring out a good pose to put the characters in, knowing that its a jam piece.
I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out. I was also surprised that the buyer preferred to keep the piece in black & white, considering how much he had donated.
We're still accepting donations for sketches, see this entry for more details.
I'll be phasing out the old sketchblog in favor of this, and I hope to eventually resume posting the daily sketches, but through here.
Anyways, welcome to the new blog. This should be fun.

The book continues to be one of my favorites, and when I heard that Kotobukiya was putting out a diorama based on it, I was worried that my broke ass couldn't afford it. Thankfully my brother wasn't. He got this for me as an advanced Christmas and birthday present.
