Invader Zim Commission

This is one of the more unique commissions I've ever drawn. This is a giant version of Gir from "Invader Zim", preparing to devour the Almighty Tallest.

Here's the client's description. I decided to ink the whole thing and add red eyes.

"Hope your familiar with Invader Zim. In this I will want A gigantic Gir (the cool insane robot from the show) in "duty mode", which means he has to have his red eyes, nothing else needs to be inked just the eyes. Anyway he is going to be holding up the almighty tallest ( the 2 leaders of the Irken empire) like he is going to drop them into his mouth and eat them. And maybe have the vague image of buildings ( or maybe alien buildings) behind Gir just to show how large he is ( he's normally only about 3' tall)."

Sketchbook: A Simpler Style

I grew up idolizing those artists with hyper-detailed styles, but things changed as I got older. I became fascinated with those artists who can economize their linework and tell the same story, without sacrificing the energy that givessuperhero comics their appeal. Some artists that come to mind are Bruce Timm, Darwyn Cooke, and Michael Avon Oeming.

I've been experimenting with simplifying my own style, and here are two examples from my sketchbook. If you follow my work you may recognize Revenger. The other guy is a villain I came up with on the fly.

Thundarr Inks and Digital Colors

Here's the inks for a Thundarr commission I recently completed, and some digital colors by a friend of mine named Austin Miller (aka @UltraPunch on Twitter). He did such an awesome job that I had to show it off.

CAA: Punisher and Nightwing

I'm all caught up Comic Art Alliance sketches, and I'm anxious to get started on the new topic, Tim Burton. If I can only settle on a character from one of his movies.
