Like I said a few weeks back, I've been doing some sketch cards in between working on projects. Mainly as a way to relax, lol, or try to. And I really enjoy doing them. Hopefully, they'll sell at conventions. I think the Bat-family is a good bunch to do and have a lot of them I want to do. here's the first grouping.

Here's another commish I got by writer and colorist extraordinaire, Noel Short. This is Gundred from his series he's working on called Breakers. It's a great story that I had the chance to read some of and I can't wait to see it progress!It's going to be great. I'm not a big fan of profiles views, but I decided to draw Gundred looking up toward the surface of the water. I figured this fits a lot into the story and also if Noel decides to color this, hint hint, lol, it'll give him lots to fun with the light source. Hope ya like it, Noel!

I've had this for a while, but was waiting for the right time to post it. I'm curious as to what people think, so let us know how you like the new updated DRUMFISH Logo! Personally, I love it and a HUGE thank you to Luciano Vecchio for doing it. You're the best, Luc. Thanks!
So, I said this would be a year of changes and projects! Hopefully there will be lots to post soon. For starters, Luciano Vecchio has helped to do some new banners for the blog. They will rotate between them and all and new ones will be added when new projects are ready. I love them all and hope I can figure out how to get the rotation thing working on here! lol.

Andy MacDonald is one of those few artists that you can always count on at conventions to draw an incredible sketch. I don't think I've ever seen any commissions that Andy has done that I haven't been impressed with. This sketch of Sin is no exception. I love the action and detail he put into it. I don't have many sketches of Sin and this is definitely one of my favorites. Andy is currently drawing the new Terminator series from Dark Horse. Check it out! And see more of Andy's work at http://www.andymech.blogspot.com/ .

One of my favorite things about Indie comics (besides creating) is meeting other creators and getting to know them. Last year I got to met Greg Mayer (another local New Yorker) and have become friends with him. Greg is an extremely talented and nice guy. He's also full of energy and positive vibes. That's a rare thing in comics, so it's been a pleasure hanging with Greg at conventions. With this post are two different sketches Greg did of the Sentinels. The first is of Templar and baby Simon and was done at the Wizard Big Apple Con in my sketchbook. The second is a group shot of Templar, Firebomb, Serpenta and Crusher that was pencilled by Greg and given as a gift to me to ink. I had a blast inking it. It's been a while since I've inked anyone else's work, so it was nice to do it again. Sorry it took me so long, Greg! One other thing I have to say is that I think Greg needs to patten his clouds, lol. You know, like their is the "pattened Perez rubble", well Greg does the same with his clouds. Just look at them, lol. Please check out more of Greg's work at http://gregmayer.deviantart.com/ . He's working on a number of different projects that I hope he'll be showing soon.

This awesome sketch of Wickkid was drawn by the talent Marc I. Ulloa. I think Marc is one of the best Anime style artists I've ever seen and he did this sketch so quickly, I couldn't believe it. His use of pen and markers really make his characters pop and I thought it was perfect for Wickkid. Check out more of Marc's work at http://giname.deviantart.com/ .

Last year I had the chance to get not one, but two sketches by the talent Mike McKone. Mike was the original artist on Marvel's Exiles and helped relaunch DC's Teen Titans along with Geoff Johns a few years back. I already posted the first sketch I got by Mike of Electron, but here is the second one I got at Wizard Big Apple, this time he drew Gospel. I really love Mike's style and think he did a great rendition of Gospel.

So, I got a few bites on doing commissions. The first one was Medusa for someone who later changed their mind and decided they didn't want the commission. But I finished it any way because I wanted to, lol. It's not a pose I would have picked for her, but it's what they wanted at the time. Since that one, I decided that I would only do 3/4 shots of characters and get the money up front. My second commission (my first paying one, lol) was of Atlas Parker, an original someone on Deviant Art. I had fun doing both of these, though I think I totally over inked Medusa's hair, lol.
