Orkton Family Holiday

Paul Allor contacted me about doing a holiday card featuring the Orc Girl character and her future family.

I came up with a winter holiday where the orcs reflect on the past history of violence and celebrate their times of peace.

Their family swords and spears are kept in closets and brought out once a year. Inspired by Odin as one of Santa's origins, their gift bringer also gave up an eye. But instead of knowledge, I imagine the story involves him as the one that made peace with their enemies.

Really all Paul asked for was an image for a holiday card.

So click the image to download one of the best things about the season!

Santa epic

I have an idea to do an Icelandic epic with a pseudo origin story for Santa Clause.

Basically an old hermit battling trolls in the snow.

Bats, Cats, and Magik

A couple of recent 9x12 watercolor commissions:
Magik and Kitty Pryde
Batman vs Manbat

I like that I had Batman's cape and the gargoyle he is own go off the page. Wish I had doen that with Manbat's wings. dag-nabbit :/

A man dressed like a bat...

Its pretty creepy to see Batman's eyes under the mask.

Ive been watching Boardwalk Empire recently and I really wish that crew could do a Batman short film while that have all those sets and costumes.
