It's not easy being green...

Ink and gouache. If you thought the Hellboy story was peculiar, wait till you read this one...

Captain Marvel

As with the Warlock head sketch, I tried to get a little bit of a Gil Kane vibe in the drawing, but it didn't really come through.

Adam Warlock

I tried (and failed) to make this look a little more like a Gil Kane drawing. I really liked that series from the early '70's.

Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles: pencils and inks

This one is a bit of a re-run. I posted the inks more than two years ago but I just found a copy of the pencils:

Wonder Woman pin-up

This one was published in Wonder Woman #50, January, 1991. There weren't any specific guidelines from DC; they just asked for a pin-up to include in the anniversary issue. I asked if I could draw the Golden Age WW but they said they'd rather have the current model. I sort of split the difference. And who knows where that corpulent Minotaur came from. I think I was just trying to have fun with the piece and letting my weird imagination run wild.

Martian Manhunter designs

The new look for the Flashpoint version of J'onn J'onzz was up in the air when DC asked me to do the third Outsider cover (yesterday's post) so I agreed to do some sketches. He started out looking a little shark-like.

Dr. Strange sketches

Sorry for the long absence. A short vacation from blogging turned into a much longer break but I've accumulated a few sketches in the mean time so I should be able to do a post or two before I run out of steam again.

Hope you're all having a good Summer!

Here's Doc:
