Baby Groot for Phoenix Con 2019!

Well, I sold out, yes SOLD OUT! of the first edition Groot. Thank you to EVERYONE who bought a print and made that run a success. So, as true Vanquish Studio fashion, there is a different edition for the new year. Ever since the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie came out (which I really liked), it seems as though everyone just LOVES Baby Groot. And what’s not to love? An adorable little plant that is just too cute even for his captors! I finished the pencils for a new Groot during the Tucson Comic Con and my business partner liked it so much she told me to scan it and color it. OKAY! Here is a sneak peek of the inks. The generic gradient background is just for showing the inks. I’m going to color this one very carefully! Comment and let me know what you think!!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Vanquish Studio

Planning on MORE Comic Cons

Vanquish Studio hasn’t done a lot of comic cons since 2015. 2019 is the year when I’m thinking of doing the Long Beach Comic Con, Palm Springs, Phoenix (goes without saying since it’s my own back yard), and Tucson. That is a total of four cons which, believe it or not, is a lot! Now, would I like to do more comic conventions, yes, but travelling is very difficult for me. Why? Well, I have a 9 to 5 that I┬áneed to worry about as well as other things. Regardless, I will be opening an Etsy shop soon to help people get my stuff when I can’t make it to their city. So stay tuned!!!

More Coloring Pages

A few years back, in 2014, they did a reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. I did a set of the turtles for the 2014 (or maybe it was 2015) movie with Megan Fox and all the comic conventions I went to those subsequent years. I understand that the movie didn’t really do that well which may explain why it took so long to sell these! Sometimes the CGI just can’t overcompensate for a poor story. Anyway, I revived my original inks and made them into a set of, you guessed it, COLORING PAGES!

Redesigning My Business Card

Over the years I’ve had many different business cards. I actually prefer to pass out postcards more than the standard business card because I can showcase my art. I think a business card is too small and it gets lost with all the other ones. A postcard, on the other hand, is much larger and I think people are more likely to NOT lose it! Here is what I’ve designed so far. What do you think?

New Worksheet!

I did it! I made a worksheet to practice hatching lines. I decided to take a random picture off the Internet to make a worksheet. I was going to make a “My Little Pony” -type horse but I changed my mind. The horse I did make is good for both directional and small hatching. Maybe I’ll make another video showing my own hatching with it. In the mean time. . . PRACTICE HATCHING!

New Coloring Pages!

Yup, that’s right, to commemorate the 7th year that Vanquish Studio has visited the ol’ hometown and showed at another Tucson Comic Con! Thank you again to everyone who bought a print. Here are six new releases in my FREE coloring page section of this blog.

I have two Batman villains that I did earlier at the Tucson con but I’ve since discontinued them. Poison Ivy and the Scarecrow. Loki is a reboot of an earlier drawing I did. The original is in the Marvel Gallery. I don’t think I’ve published the reboot version, yet.

Don’t forget to subscribe so you get notified of new coloring page releases!

Tucson Comic Con 2018

Leave a comment

Comic conventions are a lot of fun to attend but they are also very tiring. There is literally so much to look at and see from the art to the toys to the costumes, that you can overdose on your senses! I’ve gone to the Tucson Comic con EVERY year. This year I premiered my reboot of Venom.
