Sometimes I get to do a commission that is most enjoyable. This was definitely one of them. =s=

I‘m happy to announce that I’m now offering ORIGINAL ART for sale. The above BATMAN vs. JOKER is a recent watercolor I did for an episode of THE PROCESS. While I’ve offered COMMISSIONS for some time, it’s even nicer to be able to do my own thing and offer it to you.
Stay tuned as there are more to come…
I have excellent friends! In exchange for them letting me use their music for my videos, I’m trading art for art. I had a lot of fun working on a character that I had very little information on, and had never considered drawing before. It brought me back to drawing on the kitchen table when […]
I think I probably put my back into this one a little too much. I ended up doing countless roughs trying to figure out the best composition, villain, pose…you name it. I couldn’t decide! The details are what got me too…I had printed out some reference and while paying attention to some of the smaller details I messed up on easily one of the biggest; the shield.
My brain was caught between the obvious reference elements and seeing the Captain America movie and in the movie he uses the round shield for a large part of it. BUT…the shield in the reference was from the early 40s that Simon and Kirby had come up with. Since I don’t use whiteout on my commissions I would have had to redo the entire thing. I talked it over with the client because I believe it’s important to keep people abreast of the situation. Own your mistakes and move on, right? Anyway, he said while he was happy with the piece I could do it over if I wanted too.
Sometimes you have to know when to throw in the towel and call it good. I liked how it turned out for the most part.
But it’s still gonna bug me to no end. I’m just glad the client was happy with the results…warts and all.
I had great fun putting this commission together for a recent client. He had wanted a steampunk version of Spiderman and since just showing Spiderman wasn’t going to be terribly interesting to me I thought adding the Green Goblin would up the ante. I had him re-engineer an old Mr. Punch mask to give him more goblin appeal as well as decked him out in 19th century privateer garb.
Thanks to those who’ve spread this image around. Seems like a lot people dig it for some reason. And I concur with the few out there, “WHY ISN’T THERE A STEAMPUNK SPIDERMAN BOOK?” They won’t know unless you ask. 🙂
