Isn’t She Lovely?

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.

Back in November I had an opportunity to show some small paintings at a coffee shop here in town.  I was fortunate to share the show with a dear friend of mine.  I honestly can’t remember how we both wound up doing super hero pieces (I think it just wound up that way) but in the end I did twelve small watercolors — six from the Marvel universe and six from the DC universe.

It only recently occurred to me that I still need to post them to the blog.  Mystique will get the ball rolling for us…

Knopka

A friend was having trouble with some inking materials, so I did some troubleshooting on my own to see if I could replicate the issues he was having.  Now, I don’t normally ink my girls — there’s no real good reason, I just don’t do it.  I think it might go away my natural tendencies towards drawing, but I’m kind of liking the experience.

Also, there’s this weird thing that happens when my friends and I go out: invariably someone will say something ridiculous, and then it’s just a matter of time before someone draws that ridiculous thing.

That being said, I’d like to introduce you to Knopka.  She’s a go-go-dancing space-cowboy pirate.  You heard me.

Morning Stretches II

So, I know of I kind of just posted this image, but after my last post someone commissioned me to do a colored version of it.  Redoing this piece was pretty exciting to see what’s changed in the style in the past year.  Also, I really enjoyed working in watercolor again.  It was fun.  I think I’ll have to do this some more.

Cutie Cthulu!

0007 Cthulu

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?
