Getting ready for Comic Con!

Well it is that time of year and I am getting ready for Comic Con. I will be working at the Write Brothers booth (#1429), we develop writing softeware. Software for Comic and Movie Scripts, Story Development and Outlining. Please come on by and say hello.

I will also be heading to the drawingboard.org sketch jam Saturday night. I am really looking forward to hooking up with the other artists and really getting into it. I have never been to a sketch jam so it will be a new experience for me and I am really jazzed about it.

Christian Bale - Let's try this again...

Well the second try turned out even worse than the first one. His jaw is way too square, his features are too big for the face. I didn't notice that while I was drawing it. I didn't spend as much time on this one, and I think it shows. I do think the hair turned out better in this one, but that is about the only thing that I like about this one. This was kind of disappointed with this one.

Christian Bale Sketch

I started this sketch and after I got done with the pencils, I knew this didn't even come close. but I went ahead and inked it anyway because I thought it came out as a portrait very well. Almost Robert Downey-like. So, as a Christian Bale sketch it didn't work but as a sketch in general I think it looks pretty good. Remember, I always want to hear what you have to say about the things I post.

One from the past...

This was a piece I did for my wife (fiance' at the time), her name is rose, so I drew her a rose. She liked it so much that she suggested that we use it for our wedding invitations. You could have knocked me down with a feather, I was stunned and elated. It is a piece that I am most proud of and sorry about. About 5-6 years ago the original was ruined by my cats and it was all I could do to have to throw it out. We had no copies of the invitations and I thought it was lost. I had not scanned it at the time. But fortune shone on me and it turns out that my sister had one of the invites and I asked her if I could have it back. It is like finding a lost teddy bear. I scanned it right away. I love this piece but I hope it is not the best thing I ever do...
