Dark Alley-Deadpool Cover Auction


I'm still using my warm ups to get an idea for a new story and I'm getting closer.  I love fantasy stories as most of you probably know and I've been thinking how to approach my own.  I want to combine the gritty urban world that I'm used to living in and add the elements of the "wooded" fantasy stories that are as old as time.  When I started doodling today I just got this image of a giant troll like creature in an alley and the kid finding that.  It's quick, and it's not really thought out but it documents the thoughts that I had on the subject and will be a great foundation to build on when moving forward.  It took about 20 minutes, brush, ink and photoshop.  

And for those of you that have been keeping up with artwork for sale you'll know that I put a new auction up yesterday.  Cable & Deadpool #44 cover featuring everyone's favorite hairy X-Man.

I'm a big fan of that Neil Gaiman-ish type of world where there is a blurring between fantasy and reality. They co-exist on two separate levels that can easily cross if you know where to look but rarely do (except for the hero of the story). That is what that picture reminded me off at least. It is such a cool idea, that a troll of that freaky size could hide in an urban landscape, and then to imagine stumbling across such a thing. Or perhaps the city has been ravaged and monsters are walking around while this kid is on the run. Or perhaps its too early to be looking at pictures that get me all fantasy crazy.

Great work, that's going up as the background for today. Thanks.

Run, kid, run !!!

although, it's probably best not to run, since something that size usually can catch you (unless you find a little hole to crawl into)

Skottie -
That pic is awesome.
Looking forward to the story.

I like the direction your sketches are taking. I think an urban Fable would work really, really well.

Keep up all the great work!

Oh... also when you get the chance don't forget to read "The Power of One" by Bryce Courtney. It is a great novel.

That creature in the alley looks imposing but not evil. To me it looks ancient and wise. I think the glowing green eyes make me think of the character Nicodemus from the secret of NIMH.

Thats what I love about single sketches. One drawing can stir the pot for an amazing line characters and stories.

My goodness these look amazing for such a simple thing. I think I could add these to my holiday cookie tray and no one would be wise to their gluten-free nature... perfect!
