A few commissions

Just what the title says. I've got more to do but I have to get INSURRECTION off my plate first. For anyone who's actually reading it, I apologize for being so slow but I'm trying to do my best, especially with this giant climactic battle. Anyway, hopefully these will be found to your liking in the meantime.

I've got some really great things lined up for the near future, by the by. Can't wait to share as I'm really exciting about it all.

First up is Black Cat.

Next is Wolvie (as I call him). I've never really been able to draw a Wolverine that I'm happy with. This one is about as close as I've gotten. I won't give up though; someday I'll get him. I really like John Buscema's and Marc Silvestri's take on the character but I think Barry Windsor-Smith's take in Weapon X is my favorite version of ol' Logan.

Rogue, from the early nineties. With the big hair.

And the White Queen. This is some strange fantasy version of her; clearly not any existing version. I just sort of made it up as I went along. It's probably my favorite of the bunch though.

The commissions are all done 11x14 inches on 500 series Strathmore bristol board and inked with Japanese brush pens. The White Queen has a little bit of Photoshop silliness thrown on in the background.

While I'm at it, here are a couple of sketches I did. These are smaller, 5x7 inches. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a huge fan of the CLONE WARS animated television show. I actually like the show better than most of the films (not the first two - episodes IV and V, but the rest). It's so much fun and isn't bogged down by all the family history. Anyway, here's Asajj Ventress and Anakin. I would LOVE to draw a CLONE WARS comic book, so if anyone knows the editors at Dark Horse...

I can't stop! Since I'm posting these, here are a few more CLONE WARS sketches from my 2010 sketchbook:

I could draw this stuff all day. Okay, back to work...
