Aqualad's makeover...

...or not! HAHAHA

Actually this is my Darkstalkers' tribute.
I love this property so much it hurts.

Out of the slew of characters his design was visually striking to me at first glance (of course I love all the other designs, too!!! :)) due to the color combination, and huge-@$$ fins everywhere. HAHAHA

I couldn't resist drawing him as my tribute.



Hope y'all digs!

B7 panel. Testing.. testing...1...2...3

Aight.... just so you all can see that I'm holding true to Bastion's 7 web thang is underway.....

...I thought I'd drop a lil preview of one of the panels. :)

I'm pulling out the stops. I used to be a perspective freak, until I started learning how to draw people. This panel was a good throwback to when I used to draw tons of buildings in hopes to be an architect. Then I realized I sucked at the mathematics part of measurements! HAHAHAHA But regardless I love drawing buildings, and I'm starting to incorporate it more in my newer pieces, and what better way than to do it in my own personal property.


For those of you not familiar with Bastion's 7 here are some pages to read up on for a quick insight: Bastion's 7 Intro; short story





Here are the gorgeous colors were done by my super-talented pal, Mike Henry AKA Zatransis.
I love Mike's palettes, so I've recruited him to help me color my backgrounds. You all are in for a treat!



My boy Dark Kenjie is hella sick with the skills. He reworked my first pass on animated panel for me. Here's the animation for it: B7 Test Panel 1

My friend, Tamer had asked if she could try her hand at animating it, too.
Here's the animation for hers: B7 Test Panel 2

Thank you all for making this panel come to life. I am forever grateful.

Tribe Called Quest

Tonight I went back to drawing with an ink pen like I did many many many moons ago. Each figure probably took about 1-3 minutes to draw, but the masks took a while longer. What I wanted to gain was to not over think the drawing. I tend to over think my work often. Tonight was an exercise to draw without fear of messing up, and getting a perfect line.






Hope y'all digs!

Here's a piece I did for the Calgary Expo artbook that I'm attending in April.

The Whole Litter and Some Possible Dingle Berries

I designed these "Kats" a couple of years ago; in 2007. This had to be one of the best, and most fun gigs I ever worked on. It was a blast because I wasn't worried about volume, and technical shiz yet. My only concern while on it was to execute pretty shapes and try to make the lines sing.



Anyway... I hope y'all digs! :)

Kuta sculpt in color

Heya, y'all! Wanted to share with ya the painted version of Kuta from my creator owned property; Bastion's 7.



My good buddy, Francisco Herrera and his studio mates, over at Studio RABIA!!, did a wonderful job getting the paint master done. When the limited edition of the gray scaled version is complete I'll share it with you, too.
The paint master for this version was done by J Arturo Ramirez.

Kuta was sculpted by super-talented Irene Matar and the turnarounds were done by the ever so skillful Walter Gatus.

Thank you to everyone for making this a dream come true for me.

I hope you're as thrilled as I am!


A reminder tho those who have bought the resins of Kuta... send me pics of it if you'd like me to make it into a journal entry. :)

Now, back to the drawing board. I'm on the last stretch of cranking out the final 3 pages pencils and colors for my 5 page Nightcrawler short story.

Who wants Happy Meals?

San Francisco Wondercon:

Just got back from San Francisco's Wondercon, and I have to say it is getting bigger and bigger every year. This year was so crazy busy! It was hard to walk around, but in a good way. It just means peeps are lovin the con and recognizing it.

Thank you, everyone for coming by the table to say hi to Christine, Ryan, and I. You all really made the con for us. If there was a time I couldn't chat with you or if it was brief, please accept my apologies. I hope to be able to connect more with ya at future cons.

Kuta Resins:

I'll be starting a journal of peeps purchasing the resin Kuta sculpts, so if you get a chance take a pic of yourself as the proud owner holding him up. These are going quicker than I had hoped, so thank, everyone for picking them up!



SSM HAPPY MEAL COVERAGE: (from my understanding, you are able to just buy the toys if you don't want the meals)










DISNEY XD SSM PREMIERE DATE COVERAGE:

We announced at our panel the Spectacular Spider-man Animated's premier date for Disney XD channel. We will start airing on March 23, 2009 in the evening time, so please check your local listings for air time.

Season 2 will air in the summer, but until then, the rest of 3 dvd volumes for Season 1 will come out before Summer. However, sometime in the Summer, the boxset will hit a local store near you!! It'll have a ton of special features in it. Woot! Woot! I can't wait!

More toys!

In Target and Toys R Us, the 12 inch Spectacular Spider-man Animated figure is on the shelves. (I know where I'm going after I post this journal!)
