So it's been a while but i promise I will start updating more regularly. I have a 7 page comic project that i will be posting soon but for now I am posting some character sketches that I've done over the past few months.

This is my take on Batman and his alter ego (in that order) Bruce Wayne. I have been trying to do more mainstream characters for a while and am pretty happy with this. I'm not sure if I would keep doing all of the folds in the suit in the future but some realistic details do work in many modern interpretations including Paul Pope and Lee Bermejo's takes on the Dark Knight.

This is Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman without her mask. Adam Hughes has done a ton of amazing covers for that book and he's a great inspiration to many artists. His new Audrey Hepburn inspired look for her really influenced this sketch. I am also happy with the near-dead brush pens that allowed for the drybrush effect.
This is a character design for a story that I have been working on for a long time. It was a pretty small drawing (maybe 3x3") that I colored in Photoshop. I really like that nubby headgear design.
This is another color test from the same SciFi story as the guy above. Another very small sketch I really rendered the hell out of it and came up with this.

Hard to believe but this and the girl above were drawn in the same style originally. After doing the more rendered one above (and taking way too long for such a small sketch) I decided to do a much faster animated-style color test. This one only took a half hour or so to color and would be more suitable for using in an actual comic.
