Comic Cover: The War is Over

Hooray! It's finally done! For those of you who weren't exposed to Arvellia:

This was for my Sequential Storytelling class...

The assignment was to create a short comic based upon a piece of literature. I chose to do a chapter out of Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden's 'Baltimore, or the Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire.' (one of the only things I've ever read that always creeps me out)

If you've never heard of the book, I highly recommend it.

Submission no. 3 for Noel Night:
A 'Baby Grendel.' Each ornament will have a different face, and a unique eye color.

Submission no. 2 for Noel Night:
A 3x5 postcard of a Raven.

These cards will come in packs of 3 or 5 (haven't decided yet). There will also be a bear, and maybe a lynx. Any other ideas?

Dr Gorgeous

You may recognize him as the villain formerly known as Dr. Morgus. Consider it the results of a one-sided custody battle. So. Morgus re-imagined is this fellow: a Civil War battlefield surgeon with a Mengele-esque hobby

The Whisper Sisters

My submission for the Damned III show in Detroit. The bodies are polymer clay, and the desolate little boy is sporting a pigeon skull. The nasty girls have replica eagle skulls.

There are a few details to be worked out yet: the boy will be holding a popped balloon on a string (hence the wicked needle in the hand of the pink girl), he'll have some rosy spots on his knees and hands, some detail painting on the girls' dresses, and I still need to attach the brackets to the shelf.

Just kind of a silly end-of-summer type thing. I always suspected that Mikhail Prokhorov was an IRL Tony Stark. Young billionaire playboys with too much money. Uh.. Yeah.

Extremely quick sketch.

Went to Mayhem Fest last Friday. Zombie was CLEARLY in a league of his own there, and I was pretty bummed to discover that I loathe every last one of his tour shirts. So I decided to (eventually) make my own.

The original concept, I think, is much stronger. More detail... his hands were in front of him holding a skull, there were bats/trees in the background instead of the striping... whatever. It's late, and I got lazy. I'll re-do it later.

VooDansi WIP- Face

Aaaaalmost finished with his face... This picture is awful, but I needed a document of what I've been up to. Next up: hair (dredlocks) or the arms.

Ahh, the newest project. He's going to be a sort of voodoo witch doctor when he's finished. Made of a mixture of Super Sculpey III and Primo. Finished, he'll probably stand between 10-12."

Sorry. I forgot to take pictures of the armature.... Still getting used to this whole 'document your progress' thing. Don't worry. It was nothing spectacular. This part is much more fun. Now, onward to the forearms and skull!

Just back from ICON6...

...And two of the resolutions I made for myself were that I'd
a. start a sketch blog, and
b. go through the sea of business cards I picked up, and take a look at the work.
Nothing wrong with hitting two birds with one stone, yeah?

Here are some of the amazing people I met, along with some I already knew:

Uh. This is a WIP shot of a thank-you I'm doing for my cousin in Chicago. He sent me a really super-awesome 'sketchbook' awhile ago (it's more of a leather-bound scroll), so he'll be getting this in the mail shortly. This is the inked stage... soon to go on to watercolor. I wanted to do some sort of priest[ess] that could be from any culture... Um. Yep.

Thanks, Sam and Bo!
