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!
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!
I previously posted that Vanquish Studio will be at Dev Fare this year! What exactly IS Dev Fare? It is a FREE Fan Culture Convention held at Arizona State University/ West Campus (west valley, for those here in the metropolitan Phoenix area). This year it will be on Saturday, March 23rd, from 10 am until 6 pm.
It is unique in that it is hosted by the Society of West ASU Gamers which is an organization run entirely by students. It is NOT sponsored by big corporations. These people do it for the fun. This year will be the third year they have hosted the convention. Dev Fare 2019 has a vendor hall, panels, a video game tournament, and a costume contest, just to name a few things! The event is family friendly, has free admittance, and also has free parking.
You can’t go wrong. So if you are looking for something to do, check it out.
Vanquish Studio will be debuting the new Baby Groot! We sold out, YES SOLD OUT, of the original Groot (which I don’t think is nearly as adorable as this one). So, of course, we have to make a new one for 2019 and restock!
I decided to release the black and white as a new coloring page. Scroll down and click the link to download it. The colored version will be available at Dev Fare!
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
