Would Have Had Gambit…

So I didn’t get to show my new art at Dev Con this past weekend. YES, I called it Dev Con. I think that law suit about using the abbreviated “con” and copyrighting it is ridiculous.  Anyway, I had finished Gambit but didn’t get to show him off. Now, I really like him as a character when I started reading X-Men (back in the 90’s!) He could charge objects with an energy blast. He always kept a deck of cards in his pocket because they were small, convenient, and plentiful for someone with that particular power – he has 52 charges! I also liked his French/ Cajun accent when he spoke to Rogue. I was soooo upset when the Bryan Singer movies hooked-up Rogue with Iceman! Everyone knows the eternal love struggle in the comics is between Rogue and Gambit. It’s classic forelorn love. Anyway, he was my favorite X-Man and from the requests at comic conventions, a lot of other people like him as well. So I had to draw him. I did have a slight issue with the black eyes. When my manager saw them she freaked out but I explained that Gambit has mutated eyes. That’s one subtle thing about him that can be unsettling. He really can’t hide that he’s a mutant. And his eyes are red which is an emotionally charged color in our society. This was a challenge but fun to draw and I hope you like it.

Aquaman Inks!

Aquaman pencils and inks

I’ve finished inking Aquaman. I did the Jason Momoa version since the movie will be coming out soon. I’ve started adding backgrounds to my pin-ups. I think it adds more dimension and will look especially awesome when colored! I scanned in my inks but I didn’t clean up the pencils. It’s important to use a method of drawing called “restating”. Leave the bad line and draw the correct line around it. It makes fixing mistakes infinitely easier!

I’ll have to post the re-boot version of Black Panther too. Stay tuned!!

Working on Stuff

So I figured I haven’t done a video in quite a while. I’m working on one right now! I will edit and post it over the weekend. Unfortunately, I have a day job and that has been taking a lot of my time lately. I will need to correct that! In the mean time, I’ll post sketches of projects I’m working on.
