Shameless Plug #2

Gen 13 issue 19 came out last week. In it you'll find 8 pages pencilled by Kevin West and inked by
me, including some nice cheesecake. Unfortunately poor word balloon placement covers up some of it--pesky dialogue... :-/

That's the cover on the right. I had nothing to do with it.

Planet Comicon Day 2

Two more pics that were done for the second day of Planet Comicon. I did get a 3rd one done, but Jeff has it on his camera and still has to send it to me. Left is Light Lass from the new Legion of Superheroes book, and on the right is that Lone Wolf and Cub guy (still can't remember his name).

A fun and profitable trip, as every year, Thank you Chris Jackson and Sidne Ward for having us out again. I'm currently inking some hush-hush stuff
for Wildstorm, badging in my game I play, and waiting next week for hopefully some more inking work over Super Friends. I still have to finish off my Bleach print, I'll figure it somewhere in there... :P

There is a bit of talk about heading out to Heroes Con in Charlotte NC, and possibly Baltimore Con. I'll post if it becomes definite. Baltimore is nice since it's more comic/artist centric. Good place to get alot of nice sketches by big named artists.

Planet Comicon, Kansas City

Here's the day's (and night's) haul from today's event. Lotsa fun, sometimes fustrating, had to erase faces many times to get them the way I like. But all n' all, not a bad batch. Top Tier: Shadowwing (Original Character), Shadowcat (done by Jeff) and Majik in a twofer (no twosome, aww. :( ), and Neriel, a character from the new arc in Bleach.

After the con, Jeff and I played in a charity Hold'em event. I was the first LOSER out of all 3 tables (yay me!). But I was followed close behind by Phil Hester, I guess it luck wasn't on the side for anyone named "Phil." At least Beer and Food wuz to be had... :P

Back at the hotel, we got some work done down in the lobby doing a sketch night thing, jawjaggin' with Angel Medina and Sidne Ward for a spell. Two more sketches were done: Spoiler as Robin, and Black Widow; leaving me with one sketch left to do tommorow. Fun time, now bedtime. G'night!

Bleach Beach Work in Progress

Well, looks like I won't be able to get my Bleach print done for Planet Comicon this weekend. But here it is, in all it's unfinished glory. It's been so long since I've done any real computer coloring so it's all new to me again.

I've been using Photoshop and a kind of scumbling brush to give a different feel than just plain ol' airbrush. A nice, little more naturalistic effect, but more labor intensive. That is, till I get it down pat, then forget everything I learned when I move onto my next color piece.

Uh, you should be looking at the scumbling brushstrokes in the picture on the right. "IGNORE ME!"
