BATMAN Sketch!


It's been a while since I've drawn BATMAN. He's always cool to draw. I always like drawing him stocky, like how Frank Miller did on DARK KNIGHT RETURNS.

I'll always appreciate the 3 year run pencilling BATMAN:Gotham Knights (issues 8-47). I'm very greatful to edior Denny O'Neil for giving me the opportunity to work on GOTHAM KNIGHTS years ago.

Thanks, Denny.

Storyboards - HereAfter movie Part 1






Here's these Storyboards that I did for this Indy movie a few years ago that I think never got filmed. The film deals with the tsunami that hit Thailand.

Storyboards - CableDay the movie







These storyboards I did a few years ago for this parody movie of TRAINING DAY called CABLE DAY which never got filmed. It was a great experience collaborating with the director.

3D Cinematics

Here's this 3D Cinematics that I did for BottleRocket Entertainment. I created this cinematic in Maya 3D software. I set up the shots & cameras. I did the basic animation for the animators so they would have a basic idea what the character is doing in the scene and they can do their magic to bring it to life.

I edited the audio and sound effects in AfterEffect. I have to be thankful to my buddy Erol Oksuz for being patient with me when he was showing me how to do cinematics in Maya. I had a great time doing cinematics. It's like taking the next step from Comics to Animatiion. So I put all my studying of storytelling in comics and applied it to 3D Cinematics. This comes close to making a movie. It pretty cool.

Back from the San Diego Comic Con!


Comic Con was a blast! I met a lot of fans and fellow comic book artist like Jamal Igle. I did a lot of commissions and sold a ton of 13 x19 prints like the Watchman piece that's on my blog. It was my top seller. Next to Batman and then Flash. People were digging the preview pages of the WEB One Shot which comes out next month. So over all, it was cool.

BTW Here's a splash page from the WEB #1. Enjoy!

If you havn't heard I'm now the regular artist on The WEB ongoing series. So we wanted to start off the WEB #1 with a bang so here is this 2page spread with the WEB slugging Deadly Force and flying out of a burning warehouse.

I recently did an interview with Newsarama talking about The WEB so check it out. Here's a link to it.

TheWEB vs. Deadly Force!



Here's The WEB duking it out with Deadly Force.

At some point, I'm going to post an anatomy of a comic page. Showing the development of a comic page. Starting with the script, thumbnail, layout, breakdown, & to finish pencils. I'm probably will do that in the next few weeks.

The WEB Character Study!


I did this painted character study of the WEB and approach it as if it was concepted for a movie or video game. Instead of it looking like spandex, I gave his costume a carbon fiber look. It was fun to paint.

I'll be posting some more painted WEB art in the near future.

DC's Red Circle One Shot - The WEB!


I guess the cat's out of the bag... I'm working on one of the Red Circle One Shots...The WEB! And I'm very fortunate to be working with J. Michael Straczynski. I feel it's an honor to be working with him.

I've worked with Denny O'Neil, Devin Grayson, Chris Clairemont, Peter David and other comic writers in the past, but I got to tell you, I really like working from JMS' script. Everything is there in terms of visually and dialogue. Sometime with some scripts, they can be very dry without depth or substance or sometime the storytelling pacing can be off. So as a storyteller, I'll add more panels to slowdown the pacing to play out the story. But with JMS' script, it's all there.

Also Hilary Barta is inking over my pencils. I think that Hilary will do a bangup job. He did a great job inking over my art on BRAVE and the BOLD #25 which is due out July 15.

More BRAVE & THE BOLD art!





Here's Pages 6&7 from BRAVE & THE BOLD #25.

I added sound effects to the art. I try to approach the sfx as part of the storytelling like Walt Simonson or Howard Chaykin.

Brave and the Bold #25







Here's pgs 1-3 of Brave & the Bold #25 that I'm pencilling for DC Comics. It's been a while since I did some superhero stuff, but I'm having fun with it. I like how Hardware is coming out considering it's been tough to finding some good reference. So I'm putting more of a techi look to him.

Here's a couple of Watchmen concepts I did for BottleRocket Entertainment who were going to do the Watchmen video game until they walked away from the project.
