Getting back into using a brush. These were some practice with a Pigma Brush pen. I got a Pentel Pocket Brush for my birthday (thanks darlin!) and I'll post some of that stuff soon.

Cap and Red skull commission pencils

Printed out the rough and light-boxed this. Next I'll use a kneaded eraser to take up excess graphite, then start putting in the basic tones. Usually I just use a marker, but this being twice as big I'll probably use a water color wash of some kind.

Fantasy poster progress

The Mixed Tape Film Series 80's Fantasy month.

It started with a sketch in my notebook:

The movies included Never Ending Story, Legend, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and Willow. Then there were some local theater politics that almost put an end to Mixed Taped Film Series. But you can't stop the revolution and we're set up for a new venue and all looked good. We dropped Legend which meant I didn't get to draw a pantless Tom Cruise, but whatever. I came up with this:

It all looked great, but remember those politics I mentioned earlier? They came back once again. We eventually had to drop Dark Crystal and Never Ending Story and lose the 80's theme. Now we're showing Conan the Barbarian and Dark Side of Oz (the Wizard of OZ and Pink Floyd mash up). Also Lucasfilm is being all wishy-washy so I think we're leaving out Willow just to be on the safe side.

This is the image we've finally arrived at.

Cap and Red skull commission rough

This is the rough for a recent commission. I'll print this out to size and lightbox it to get the shapes and all.

There's a lot of details to work out, but I really dig the vibe I got going on here.

Conan does Laundry

I cant take credit for this one. After I showed her Conan The Barbarian for the first time, my girlfriend made this joke at some point. Its of coursed based on the great line from the movie "Two Snakes facing each other", but hopefully you knew that.
