I just realized I never posted this here. It’s a few months old, and I’ve learned a lot about digital inking and coloring since I did this piece, but I’m still proud of it. I did this in June when I participated in a 30 day art challenge. The topic on this day was Sailor Moon, obviously.
I remember this was the first anime I’d ever really seen. I was 10 years old and totally into all the stuff that boys that age were into at the time. My friends made fun of me for watching Sailor Moon because it was made for girls. But I watched it, because amidst all the romantic girly stuff that would have normally ran off a young male like myself, there was some really cool action, superpowers, humor, and a badass dude who could fuck you up with a rose.
I’ve always really liked Tuxedo Mask. I think my Bruce Timm influence really shows here, I feel like Tux looks like he just walked out of an episode of Batman: The Animated Series.
This is the first page of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic I’m doing for fun with my buddy Fabian Rangel Jr.
This isn’t anything official, just a fun little comic because we are both big Turtles fans. It’ll probably be a while til I finish it all since I’m juggling some other work right now, but once it’s done we’ll post it online. This is a continuation of a short story Fabian did with Jethro Morales a while back. You can find that story here.
This is set in a post-apocalyptic future, and Bebop and Rocksteady are hunting the Turtles. Fabian let me have a blast redesigning the characters for this. I felt like B&R really needed new looks so I messed with them a good bit, hopefully not too much. I also gave the Foot robots a new look that I really like a lot. Hope you guys like it!
My first cover job. These are the inks. I will be doing the colors today. This is for a book called “The Naked Man at The Edge of Time” written by Jeff McClelland with interior art by Kurt Belcher. I inked Kurt’s pencils on the original one-page Naked Man story about a year ago and Jeff asked me to do the cover for the one-shot. I don’t even think the one-page story was ever published. Maybe Jeff will include it in this book? I dunno.
