Blogger won't let me upload images right now. I'll try again later. I have two versions of one image to post. According to the status page, it should've been working as of 7:30pm, but it's already 7:50pm and no luck.
update: 10:15pm: The uploads still won't appear. Sigh.
update: 11:45pm: Clicked refresh and there they are.

Here's a gouache painting with a few touch ups in PS. I still want to work on something with sci-fi elements that I like such as city-size spaceships, laser guns, aliens, etc.
This one was fun because there wasn't a pencil stage. Just a brush making shapes and a little texture.

These are some of the many practice sketches I do to test what the characters look like and how to properly draw the action the script needs. Plus it is the practice I need to draw the unique clothes that Samurai's have. I actually have done dozens of test sketches and pages. It needs to be right before I start my proposal. I would of course redraw and then ink these if I liked them enough. The first one by the way was supposed to have a shadow from a tree on his face. That didn't work out.

So this is the cover for the comic I just finished. I was asked to make it an homage to Scarface. My only request was that it not be a straight up rip off of the original design(although the central figure is pretty close). I tried to add some details and concepts to hint what is going on inside the book and give a little more hint as to the rest of the artwork while still making it clearly recognizable as a scarface homage. I hope to have it colored in vary dark hues on the black side and very light hues on the light side to further make it look like Scarface except with the "hidden" details seen upon closer inspection.
