From Hibernation

Just to show that I still plan on updating this.  After all, I didn’t get to part 2 of the New Zealand trip (which I will). 

We’re heading off to Emerald City Comicon this coming March 1; me, Stephen Segovia, and Jay Anacleto together with our rep Kirk Dilbeck.  So if you’re in the area, drop by our table (Which I think is going to be M11 and 12).   The site’s not updated so we’re not on the site’s Artist Alley list.

After which I’m going to get back to updating this site.

Poison Ivy Print

This lady took me a while to finish, coloring wise… because of those damned leaves!  I had inched toward it’s final touch ups just last month after coloring a portion a week… I had to work after all and had to focus on more important concerns.  But I’m pretty happy with the result —  always wanted to draw Poison Ivy at her sexiest.

Witchblade Sketch and Test post

It has been a year since I last updated, since WordPress tags went haywire— hoping it doesn’t happen again. If you’ll also notice the change in address… so if anyone bookmarked  the site, you’re welcome to update em.

And yes, Sara Pezinni…

Pretty much everytime I drew her before, she was nearly naked… And no, I don’t have them  anymore.

The Sandman (photomanip)

Dreamcasting is such an appropriate term for this one.  Not much photo manipulation  for the character though.

I wanted to change his clothing but that would take too much time, so I just composed something quick to pass the time while I sneeze my frakkin head off.

After Geoff John’s tweet about the Sandman TV adaptation is still “Awake”, I figured I should edit or make a mock poster with someone I thought would be great as Morpheus;  Benedict Cumberbatch…

Elektra… again. But Finished

Really, really finished.

Started this painting way back in 2006, with really no final idea in mind.  What I wanted was just a sexy pinup and an exploration of methods.  I did end up posting an unfinished work in DeviantArt, with a step by step process, but I never revisited it until it was requested by Jay Tablante, saying he needs it as an inset for his feature in Digital Photographer (Philippines) Magazine

He used it as a costume reference for his Elektra shoot with model Nadine Howell.

I Drew the ‘iPad’ in 2004!

So comes the new iPad 2, and suddenly I remembered I drew it sans the apple logo! Apple should give me royalties! And since Marvel is now under Disney, in which Steve Jobs is part of the board, They’d no sooner say Yes.

Ok, just kidding.  but I did draw something similar on the pages of X-men: Unlimited volume 2 #7.

XmenUnlmtd-pg02XmenUnlmtd-pg03XmenUnlmtd-pg04

Tablets have popped in comics I’m sure, but I just remembered this while downloading the Apple Keynote.

XmenUnlmtd-pg02-closeThe script called for a ream of print outs with the kids diagnosis. I decided to replace it with a hand held tablet, to match the new danger room (which was also changed from the old Danger Room).

The idea came really from Star Trek, the same inspiration the Apple designers credit.  Putting it in the book made sense as it gets passed over to Kitty, who I took as not as knowledgeable in medicine as Beast.  A tablet would be handier and intuitive for her to flip through.

What I drew in the pages is hardly an Apple product (if you’ve reached this part and still think I’m serious, scroll back).  It’s borderless on the long sides, and the power button is at the top left, but it’s just as thin as the iPad.  All the same, had fun drawing it and the story.

A couple of years back  there was also another tech that I’ve been itching to put on paper and saw it first in the Red Planet movie.  It’s the translucent sheet that one can use as an Augmented Reality screen.  I never did get the chance.

But if we’re lucky, we might get to use an actual one in the near future.

X-men: Unlimited V2 #7 The Boy Who Wasn’t There was written by Mike Raicht, with me on the pencils and inked by Sean Parsons.

Silver Surfer

SO the book is coming in this week, and we’re all hoping you’ll grab it (in exchange for cash of course) and the story is set after the events of Chaos War.  Silver Surfer is written by Greg Pak and interiors done by our good friend Stephen Segovia.  I had the privilege of doing the covers.

There will be a signing for the launch of the series; however locally at Comic Odyssey in Robinsons Galleria this Saturday.  Present will be Stephen Segovia and Harvey Tolibao.  Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend as Deadline looms…  I also will not be able to attend Komikstrip scheduled also this Saturday.

As you’ve already seen the full colors for the cover, allow me to share the pencils and inks

A Study of Death

Isn’t it fun that everytime you use the names of one or more of the Endless you end up with seemingly profound sentences?

Death

Did this to freshen my mind while doing layouts, it’s digitally drawn, and a study for something I plan on drawing soon.

Good Morning!

For Collectors and Afficionados

For those who have been interested in purchasing my artwork, or commissions may I direct you to Kirk Dilbeck for any inquiries.  For those unaware I am no longer under the representation of Glass House Graphics since 2009 — as do Harvey Tolibao, Jason Paz, Stephen Segovia, and Jeffrey Huet.  And just last year, Me, Stephen and Jason have signed with 3-Wishes, who also reps the Great Philip Tan — capital “G” and the Phenomenal Jay Anacleto — Capital “G” too for godlike.

Although I have to advise I haven’t yet started with commissions, but will be in contact with Kirk if and when.

Let me leave you for now with the Pencils for cover 615 of Hulk

A Look Back

Haven’t been posting artwork for a long time, so I thought I ‘d do that by focusing on my favorite pages of past works

So let me start off with these, from the 2 part Agents of Atlas vs The X-men; written by Jeff Parker

AgentsofAtlas_12_0021-1

AgentsofAtlas_12_0022-1

To be specific my most favorite is the last panel for page 21 all through the splash.

Whenever I draw a sequence, I imagine it always moving.  Hence for panel 5, I thought it would be could to see Cloak unfurling his… well — cloak; billowing with rushing air coming in from the other side and then fully opens to (page 22) rush the X-men out.  And why page 22 is a fave is obvious, Love the X-men

After drawing the pages (and the previous ones with Cloak and Dagger), I thought It’d be great to have a TV series of the Duo.  It has the necessary elements that could make it relatable for the present viewers;, drugs, crime, teen drama (at least it isn’t another Vampire emo series).  Yeah I’d watch that.

So while posting this one, I googled “Cloak and Dagger TV Series” … There’s a plan!  Cooool.
