snapshot 7

gonna do these with painter from now on.
converting the file from riff to tiff really did something to the colors and values, i tried to adjust it as best as i could but something got lost

i've been seeing a lot of oekaki lately and still don't quite get all that it entails but it seems similar to the colors! program that let me paint on my ds. i want to try the oekaki sometimes but they all involve signing up. anyhow i thought i'd try and do little snapshot doodles everday to warm up for work, the best oekaki I have seen seem to have that feel of loose snapshots, this one is not very loose though

man it's been awhile.
been really busy and the stuff I have been working on, one being a new book I can't really share yet much too early.
some friends have set up a cool blog design a diety
here's my contribution so far
the All

"the all" : he is so huge he can only be partially captured and with great effort to do just that. The image was taken with what is currently the most powerful telescope in existence, shielded by the darkest and largest sunglass lens ever created in order to block out the incredible light emitted from the eyes, which when opened fully have been known to completely fry several galaxies. Within the tendrils of The All, many a
star has lost its way.

Boney Thought

this was a longer drink and draw sketch , there should be some red marker in there which was bleed thru from the other pages, i accidently scanned my other sketches which had color in black and white so i'll put them up later
went to new york city for the first time over memorial day weekend that was a lot of fun Sushi of Gari was probably my most favorite meal, lombardi's pizza was pretty damn tasty ,pretty let down with cafe habana...gotta go back for more in depth food trip soho was a great area. Oh and thanks to my girlfriend I was able to see a Mazzuchelli exhibit with a lot of Batman Year one original art as well as Daredevil and Rubber blankets stuff, that was inspiring to see those pretty year one pages....ah they were so pretty.

so I've finally got some free time meaning i'm not trying to finish a comic or extra storyboards. But that free time won't last long as I've been wanting to get some new orginial graphic novels underway for awhile, the first being an adventure story. So as I try and find my full color voice I've done a few more finished color pieces. Right now as much as I love to ink and the line when I color I seem to want to obliterate all lines and work with value and lighting, but completely in color. It definitely depends on the type of story but right now i'm not sure exactly How I can get all the inks and colors to synchronize, maybe I will incorporate special black and white title pages or moments within the story that are inked? And the rest linework with full color doing most of the heavy lifting. We'll see. Here's a hulk spidey and the owlen man from Mora.

Tales of TMNT 59

much of my absence is attributable to trying to get this book done which had a very tight deadline mainly because I squandered the lead time I had on the previous book, but I have yet to miss a deadline, though it totally kills most all my nights and weekends.
this book is available for pre-order in the april diamond "Previews" catalog and is out in june can't believe that's next month!!

TMNT commission

I have been working on this commission little by little over a couple months because of my crazy schedule but finally finished.
tales of tmnt 56 comes out soon
there's a few reviews here and here
also tales 59 will be available for pre-order in a week or so, so if your interested in picking it up please think about pre-ordering since very few comic shops will actually order tmnt books unless someone specifically does so. barnes and noble had pre-orders for 56 so I assume they will do the same for 59 so you could pre-order online
