I got my new prints back from the printer and I think they look awesome! I use a local company here in the Tempe area – Competition Printing. If you have any printing needs, they are your company! Great service and a fantastic product. Here is a sneak peek at my new prints!
Phoenix Fan Fusion is just two short weeks away! Vanquish Studio is ready with three new prints debuting this year: Baby Groot, Armored Batman, and Suicide Squad Harley. I’ve been working on improving my drawing skills and I tried out a new technique for creating my chibi-fusion art. I also worked the colors and values more in these new prints. My older style of coloring was a little rudimentary. Let me know what you think?
Remember, these three prints will become available on May 23rd, during preview night! STOP BY AND SAY HELLO!
This is the first finished digitally colored print for Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 – Baby Groot! It’s also the last print in my old style without a background. I’ve decided to tell more of a story or at least place the main character in some type of narrative from now on so I’m making backgrounds. I really enjoyed doing the straight, pin-up art but it’s time to add more details!
This print as well as two others are the new characters that I’m going to debut for 2019. Next is Armored Batman and Suicide Squad Harley. Both are flatted, I just have to add the details. Stay tuned!
It’s only 18 days away! I’m still working on my Armored Batman and Suicide Squad Harley Quinn. YES! They will be finished by the Phoenix Fan Fusion.
Look for Vanquish Studio in Artist Alley at booth 1014.
YES! If you play Super Mario Brothers or know anything about the video game franchise these two brothers are as thick-as-thieves. I mean Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Piranha Plants, etc. I can’t even list all the things these two have had to endure! And through it all they stay family. Anyway, for this particular coloring page release I’m doing a two-for-one special: two brothers, one release.
These two were pretty much already chibi but I added the ‘Vanquish touch’ to them. Enjoy!
30 Days to Phoenix Fan Fusion
Countdown to Phoenix Fan Fusion! It’s only, yes, ONLY 30 days away! Holy moly. I need to draw a new armored Batman and Suicide Squad Harley Quinn. I have Baby Groot but I still need to color it. Sheesh! Time flies. The mission is on!
New Coloring Page Release
In the meantime, enjoy Yoshi. Truly, it wasn’t that hard to draw Yoshi because he is basically a chibi character already. I did have fun inking the different line weights. I’m still not sure if the red bump on Yoshi’s back is a shell or a saddle. I have no clue. I’ve seen Mario on Yoshi’s back so it looks like a saddle but the bump is convex instead of concave (like a real saddle) so it’s unclear. Confusing.
Continuing with my release of video game-themed coloring pages, I’m presenting Bowser. This character is the nemesis for most of the Super Mario Brother franchise. Although it wasn’t so in the very beginning. I remember a big gorilla throwing barrels at Mario as he climbed ladders to save a damsel in distress. I remember trying to play Donkey Kong at the arcades and failing miserably at it. I was able to play Super Mario Brothers pretty well by the time the Nintendo gaming unit came into the home market. It was a blast! I played Excite Bike and Super Mario Brothers as well as Duck Hunt. I think those games were the standard for starting out. Jackal was one of my favorite games to play. I loved my Nintendo!
Anyway, a tribute to villain at the beginning of it all – Bowser.
