AM: Aragorn & Arwen
Mike & Zach, these are your cards -- I hope ya like 'em!
Grant make new drawings. Grant post on internet.
Here are a couple photos I took while drawing that Starbuck pic I posted earlier today. First is the sketch, obviously. I redrew Starbuck's face (particularly her mouth) a million times, because I couldn't find an expression I liked.. It was worth all the screwin' around though, because I like the final look she's got. Also, you can see that I ran out of paper toward the bottom (by her waist) so I taped on another sheet and drew the rest of her leg area. On Iain McCaig's DVDs he encourages you to tape on however many sheets of paper you need, and don't let the borders of the page constrict you, and I took his advice, and he was right.
Catching up on some LOTR: Evolution aftermarkets.. Still have a few more to do (not for this batch though).
Hey there, loyal blog readers. :)
The show was amazing. Still unwinding and unpacking and catching up on email, etc.
Here are two commissions I did that'll be picked up at Comic-Con. :)
Just wanted to spread the word that Oddly Normal: Volume 1 is in comic stores now! It collects the entire first series written & illustrated by my pal and Comic-Con table-mate Otis Frampton. It has a cool pin-up gallery in the back, too, including one by some goon named Grant Gould.
Here's a first look at my exclusive and eeevil Lord of the Rings "Villains" print -- It's 11"x14" and will be available at Comic-Con! I'll have either 30 or 50 copies with me (depending on what I can afford to print), so if you're goin', be sure to grab one before they're gone! :)
Thanks to everyone who gave their opinion on which prints I should go with. I was hoping everyone would lean in one direction, but no, the results (including both the actual blog plus the comments in the LJ feed) were pretty much all over the place.. heh :) So I'm just gonna go with a villains-themed LOTR print for San Diego Comic-Con, and then for Dragon-Con this fall I'll create a Willow print.
I've been wanting to create an exclusive print to sell at the cons this year, but of course time's flying by and San Diego's right around the corner, and I can't seem to pick a favorite topic -- I've been bouncing between four different ones. So, please, loyal blog readers, comment to this and let me know what your #1 pick would be, and if you want, what your #2 pick would be. I wanna know what you, The People, want. (In case you're wondering why there's no Star Wars on the list, it's because I'm saving that for next year's Star Wars Celebration IV.)
My brotherfromanothermother Ben Templesmith (who you probably know from 30 Days of Night and Singularity 7 if you're a comic fan) asked me to do a pin-up for his IDW series Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse. I'm not sure which issue it'll appear in yet.. But here's what I came up with. I liked the background I did on that Space Quint pic from the other day, so I gave this one some hazy blue action, too.
