3. Lady Beetle

Over Christmas my closest friend asked if she could draw me something as a present. I said yes, she asked me what I would want. Whenever any of my friends asks me what I want them to draw, I say Blue Beetle (Ted Kord). Not being comfortable drawing male characters, she drew a female version. …

368 – One Punch

So, this is one of the more complicated requests I got over the course of the year. I had actually attempted to do this one many times throughout the months, and always failed or got caught up in something else. A few weeks ago when I decided to expand the Daily Sketches by four days …

235 – Blue Beetle Portrait

Part 3 of my contribution to the Christopher’s Restaurant art gallery that is on display from September 20th through October 31st. Jason Young and Jeff Potter, my fellow Ok, PANIC! artists, have each done five portraits of various superheroes, and they are all available for sale. If you live in the Dayton, Ohio area, go …

155 – Blue Beetle

Another Blue Beetle. Sad that there’s apparently no room in the New DCU for Ted Kord. I’ll still light a candle every night in the window for ya, Teddy.

100 – Golden Age Blue Beetle

100 – Golden Age Blue Beetle

Whoo! 100! Hey, it’s a milestone, let me fucking have it! Seriously, I honestly thought that I would have given up by now. Trust me, I’ve wanted to. Still do! Won’t. But still do. To celebrate post #100, I did a redesign of the original Blue Beetle – Dan Garrett. I wanted to make his …

023 – Lockjaw

Fulfilling a request from Kurt Dinse, he had asked for Lockjaw, the teleporting dog from Marvel Comics’ The Inhumans. I think Kurt was deliberately trying to make me struggle. If there’s one thing I struggle with more than anatomy, backgrounds, coloring, details, likenesses, proportion, perspective, consistency, inking, penciling, the female form, faces, eyes, hands, feet, …

004 – Blue Beetle

So yeah. Expect to see this guy pop up a few more times. Anyhoo, completely unknown to me at the time I started doing this, my friend and colleague Pat Kain had already been doing this for almost two weeks! Check out his sketch-a-day blog at pbkain.com. I’m sad to admit that I had no …

Charlton Chew

Much like my opinion of Jack Kirby, I’ve spent most of my comic reading career disliking Steve Ditko. Over the past few years I’ve gotten past the things that I disliked – which were all aesthetic issues – and realized the genius of both of those creators embedded in their art. It also doesn’t hurt …

Blue Beetle

Blue Beetle

If you haven’t figured it out, since there’s more Blue Beetle drawings on this site than any other characters, he’s definitely in my top 3 of mainstream superheroes (Daredevil and Nightwing being the other two). I drew this in regular ol’ pen and ink, and then colored with color pencils. Unless he’s thrown it away, …

Post-It Doodles

These are probably going to be the only new things I post once in a while. I doodle them at work to kill time between programs and files loading, saving, closing, etc. All the things that should only take seconds, yet seem to always take minutes.
