Isn’t she wonderful? Yeah, she kinda is.
Last year I had the opportunity to show some work with a dear friend of mine and we both independently settled on doing super hero pinups. I already posted Mystique, but I thought that now would be a good time to get back into showing the rest of them.
Wonder Woman was the only one I was absolutely sure was going to be included in the show, but I didn’t want to give her the same spandex treatment she normally receives, so I went more in line with the Greco-Roman Legionnaire aesthetic. And now I just want to draw her like this all the time.
8″ x 10″. Watercolor on paper.
And here she is; the last of the Celestial Cuties in my zodiac series. I’m actually kind of proud of this piece above all the others, but mostly because whenever I’ve seen a personification of Pisces, she’s almost always a mermaid. I’m just happy that I found some other schtick to go with. I hope you’ve enjoyed them!
As we approach the end of the celestial cuties we find ourselves gazing upon Aquarius — the water bringer. Though she appears towards the end of the list, she was the first sign I completed. The fact that she’s my sign might have something to do with that. Then again, it could be purely coincidental. (Probably not.)
I just realized that I haven’t finished posting the zodiac girls, so I’ll try to wrap those up this week. The antepenultimate girl in the series is Capricorn — the goat. She may be one of my favorite, and I can’t exactly explain why.
I haven’t posted anything in two months? How did that happen! I took some time off, got busy, got distracted, and then got busy again. Still, hard to believe it’s been so long. I do apologize.
So, in hopes that you’ll forgive me, I offer you this. It’s the (colored) first page of the comic I’m working on with my buddy Owen. Remember when I wanted to do the whole book like this? What was I thinking?
Sometimes I find myself stuck with nothing much else to do, a sketchbook, and my watercolor kit. When that happens, how could I not spend my time making silly little drawings? These little paintings are getting fun.
If you’ve known me for longer than a week you know that I’m not known for making things easy on myself. To that end, this is a sneak peek into a project that I’m working on that may very well kill me.
I can’t wait until I have more to show you!
Man! Talk about one from the archives! This is one of the first pieces I did once upon a time. I thought I had lost this little wonder but I unearthed it while digging through files deep in my hard drive. You can see how certain parts of the style have evolved over the past few years. Moving on…
A friend suggested I draw her as a Cthulu-riddled she-beast and I really couldn’t pass it up. I mean, who could, really?
Back in October (wow, I’m really keeping current aren’t I?) my mom celebrated her birthday, so I decided to draw her a picture. What did I draw? Was it a sensitive portrait? Was it a luscious landscape? Was it a beautiful and touching reminder of our beloved family pet? Nope. I drew Pinhead. From Hellraiser. Because that’s how we roll.
P.S. She loved it. And how could she not? Look at how adorable this terrifying hell spawn is.
