Another New Thanos Coloring Page!

Is it just me or is Thanos an awesome character? I was asked to make a Thanos coloring page but I just didn’t quite like it. Since then I’ve done a few more sketches. I’m drawing a few versions to see which ones are the most dynamic and capture the essence of the character (well as best you can in chibi style). Here is another Thanos coloring page!

New Thanos Coloring Pages Coming

In order to really get behind the hero in a comic book or movie, you have to have a really good villain. Thanos is the current MCU’s baddie. He took out half of all life in the universe, which is pretty awful if you ask me! Anyway, I’m designing a new art print for the Tucson Comic Con of Thanos. I want to have him wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, of course, but I also liked the double edged sword he uses in Endgame. Here is what I have so far:

New Coloring Pages

Okay, so I’ve been really busy getting ready for the Tucson Comic Con which is in two weeks. I need to fix my display and add more originals to my portfolio. In the meantime, I did make a few more coloring pages. Check ’em out!

New Tutorial on YouTube

So I’ve started a You Tube channel with art tutorials on it and my first video…creating a metallic texture with colored pencils. I chose Ironman because I already have an awesome chibi version of Ironman. I suppose I could have used my Dr. Doom for the tutorial but no one seems to like that character as much. Bummer. Anyway, if you want to see the video click the link Vanquish Studio.
I’ve added a picture of the way people usually color and the Vanquish way! Okay, that’s a little dramatic but you get the idea. I also added a download of the coloring page so if anyone is interested they can download it and color along. That’s on my download page. Enjoy!

Online Store is Open!

I’m very nervous but also excited about opening my new online store. Many people ask me about my prints and if they could buy them online but I’ve always said “I’m working on it”. It’s up and running right now! Of course not all prints in my gallery on this site are for sale in my store. Some prints have been retired already and aren’t available. Other prints are being redone for the new year so the 2014 version is on sale. Check it out!

The Black Panther

Okay, so I retired a bunch of characters at this year’s Tucson Comicon which means I need to get going with all new stuff for next year. I know that Marvel will be releasing the Black Panther in 2017 so I thought I would work on that character. I admit, I had to do some research into T’Challa. He has had many different costumes over the years and some are better than others. This is what I have so far. Enjoy!

Thank You Tucson Comicon!

Thank you to everyone who bought a print at the Tucson Comicon. this was my third year at the Tucson Comicon and it has been a big success EVERY year! I will definitely be back next year. I had a lot of closeouts that people took advantage of and duplicate prints: Poison Ivy, Storm, Silver Surfer, Riddler, Scarecrow, Superman 1 and 2, Hulk, Dr. Doom (I really liked that one), Joker 1, Spiderman 2, Elektra, Green Goblin, Venom, Wonder Woman, and the Punisher are all being retired. If you got a print…KEEP IT….it’s a collector’s item now. I’m working on all new stuff for 2015. I’ll have a new, more traditional Joker (NOT the Heath Ledger version which I retired), a more dynamic Hulk (he won’t just be standing there), a different Spiderman than my two previous versions, Black Panther, and Deathstroke! I’m also redrawing a more dynamic Superman and Wonder Woman. Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone who bought a print. Without your support, I wouldn’t have the inspiration to keep creating. Speaking of creative, check out these awesome costumes from the con. I especially liked the Yup Yup Aliens from Sesame Street.
