Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Commission


 I was commissioned through a Comic Book Commission website I use to create this image of the 1980's icons the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This was a fun project to draw because I love the characters, each one has a unique attitude and look and bringing that out in a black and white pinup was a challenge.

You can see at the bottom I do thumbnails for clients to approve and then move into a graphite stage and then the full inks.

Utah Arts Festival Masquerade Ball 2015

I have been invited by the Utah Arts Festival to help participate in their Masquerade Charity again this year. (I have previous posts in January of the past two years if you want to see older entries)



I love creating these masks for the Festival, it is a charitable event and all proceeds go to help the festival survive. The have a gallery opening on Friday the 16th at the Utah Arts Festival HQ in downtown Salt Lake City if you happen to be in town.

I collaborated with my girlfriend Jolene Smith for the idea on the masks.

The two masks form one heart when placed together, but separated they are broken. The female (left side) is passion and life and love and is naive to the loss that is about to happen. The male side is sad and lonely even in the relationship he is done and wishes to move on and he weeps because of his silence, but he loves her so much.

Dracoman

I was commissioned to help design a new character called "Dracoman"


I started with rough thumbnail sketches of the character in different poses 


Once I found a position I liked I rough out a sketch on 11" x 17" Bristol Board



The final image was inked with Micron Pens and I added the name for fun.

Royal Bliss Band Tour Poster

I recently posted that I have been working with a rock and roll band named Royal Bliss to design their "The Avengers of Rock" tour. It has been an awesome experience and I am enjoying working with the guys. Here is the blue line sketch, the pencils, then the inks and digital colors for the poster.
Pencils and Inks were done by myself and the Digital Colors were completed by Phillip Sevy (Top Cow Comics artist).
