New Years Gifts

These illustrations are gifts for three of my friends for the holidays: Dave, Anca, and Joji. Each person got to request the theme. The first is "kid Goku", the second is a "breakfast wonderland", and the third is "anything from Laputa". I hope they like them, it was a lot of fun to paint each one and try different things. Cheers~ to the last post of 2008!

Our Tradition

This is based off the Batman episode, "Holiday Knights". Every New Years, the Tavern, two cups of coffee... Batman and Gordon. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years folks. I hope to color this one. Cheers!

Jam: Spidey dad

My second sketch wednesday with DA pals. Sorry, I didn't have an action pose this time, just a father and his daughter! Where is MJ? She had to go do something, so Peter's gotta take care of things at home for a moment... oh, and he just got back from stopping a bank robbery. Yep!

and by the way... just in case I don't get to say it in time:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years everyone!

bonus mix

my friend had this cool brush pen he found on the streets of japan... all he had to do was clean and refill it. I tried it out with my "Moth" characters. There are some digital fixes here, since I didn't have my reference sketches with me when I first drew them and I want to make this more like how I intended.

I like Vaitea there... I surprised myself in how I didn't fill her hair all black but instead just drew those lines.

Dec 11th, 2008 - Villainy Mix: PEYTONHARLEY

Bonus mix~ always wanted to draw this one so finally got to do it.

Usually one arm props the dummy up while the other is controlling it from inside, but for this picture I liked the balance both arms crossing created. JOKERFACE must be in "idle" mode... for now...

I really feel there are a lot of connections to make in this mix.

Hope you guys like it!

Jam: Scarlet Spidey

This was done for a sketch wednesday jam over on deviantart, run by angel-t. This month the theme is spiderman. It is my first time included into that and it was fun. I mixed things up by drawing Ben Reilly for my submission. Hope you like it! Once again, practicing my inking.

collaboration: cliff and joseph

This was a blast to make, especially since it's a collaboration with my friend Dio (Daniel Irizzari Oquendo)!

Cliff (left) is my character, and Joseph (right) is Dio's. I sketched up Cliff and the basic layout, then Dio drew his character complete with inks and shadows, and finally I added my own inking to Cliff and colored the piece.

I think the combination is a success! Look how cool they look! As to where they are and what they're waiting for... I'm not too certain except that they must be on a secret mission.

Dio- cheers to our first collab!
