Done and Almost Gone

I finished the Marvel Masterpiece sketch cards today.  I did 20 but you'll only see 18 as 2 of them are utter crap.  These were fun as hell but tough little fuckers.  

For those who have asked, here is a list of the characters from right to left

Row 1
Spider-Man, Chamber, Mojo, Ghost Rider, Punisher, Doop
Row 2
Blob, Warlock, Super Skrull, Ultimate Thor, Kingpin, Phat
Row 3
Emplate, Hulk, Doc Oc, Storm, Cloak, Dead Girl

Almost gone.  I've got one more week here in Chicago and it's starting to hit me a little.  I'll be going to my last regular drawing night tonight.  I'll still come in a a few times a month, but I'll miss seeing the group once a week.  I'm sure I'll have one more mushy post before I leave so I'll save all my crying for that one.

Marvel Masterpieces Sketch Cards

You've seen some real masters rock out on these sketch cards over the last year.  Well, they've decided that they wanted someone who could destroy all those who came before him.  I accepted. 

Of course I'm kidding and crying inside that I have to try and match the level of my friends that have already killed these cards like Jason Pearson, Eric Canete, Chris Bachalo, etc.  Damn!  Thankfully I'm only doing 20 so right around the time I get the hang of it and quit fucking them up I'll be done.  Here are a few of the first round.  I'll try and post up a few more as I finish them.

Thanks to all those who bought and commented on X-Men: DWS #1!

X-Men: Divided We Stand #1 in stores now [UPDATE]

Run to your shop and pick up X-Men: Divided we stand #1, in stores today.  It features my story about New X-man, Anole.  Written and illustrated by me with Jean on the colors.  Hope you enjoy.

[UPDATE]  I'm going to add links to reviews of the book.  I don't usually do this, but I am very proud of this short story and am interested in what everyone is thinking about it.  Thanks to those that have commented.  If you find a review of this issue, please comment and post the link.  I will add it to the list.  It doesn't have to be a good review, I'll post any of them.

This is ink and watercolor on bristol board, 11 x 14.  I basically just loosely sketched the idea, inked it with brush and ink.  Then went in and did an ink wash to add value.  After that I decided to wash over that with a few greens and reds to give it a little life.  After that I gave it a little scratched effect with white colored pencil and a slight diffused feel with white ink and a tooth brush.
