Even though the 3rd Drumfish Productions DeviantArt Contest ended in October, I just realized that I never posted the entries and results on here! My appologises, I've been bad about updating on here. I'm trying to fix that and catch up today. :)
See more of Michelle's work here.
In total, we had record 24 entries for the contest!! Thanks again for all the submissions. We truly loved them all and each were amazing.

Alanis from NEVERMINDS in her armor designed and drawn by SENTINELS artist, Luciano Vecchio to be used in NEVERMINDS issue #3! We wanted to involve Luciano in NEVERMINDS somehow, so we asked him to contribute a dress design for Alanis when she is in the Abyss. Since she appears differently every time she is in there, we thought it was a great idea and even helped advance the story. Thanks again, Luc!!

It looks like we have a winner!
I'm very proud to announce that the next SENTINELS character to become a figurine will be.....SPLASH!
Winning by a very large margin from the totals here on the blog, on the Drumfish Production Facebook page and on Deviant Art, it was obvious early on that Splash attracted a lot of interest. She'll make a beautiful looking figurine for sure. That's not to say that Phazer, Electron and Harlette didn't have their fans and supporters. And we truly hope we get to do one of those characters next. But for now, it's been decided and we'll be submitting Splash for sculpting early next year along with Nina from NEVERMINDS. I know both figurines are going to be amazing! We appreciate everyone's support and encouragement and we'll be showing off pictures as soon as we get them! Thanks, everyone! And special thanks to Luciano Vecchio for designing all the choices for the poll!

We are currently planning our next set of Drumfish Production figurines! We already know that will be doing a Nina figurine from NEVERMINDS, but we are having a tough time deciding which member of the SENTINELS team to pick. We've narrowed it down to four choices (Phazer, Electron, Splash and Harlette) that you see with this post. We thought it would be great to get some feedback from all of you and post a poll to see which character people like best and would be most interested in buying. Please vote here (to the side on this page) or on our Facebook page here.Let us know your thoughts!

NEVERMINDS issue #3 made it's debut at last month's New York Comicon and we immediately sold out of the issue!!

In addition to that, we also have the issue available for download in pdf form for only $1 at Payloadz located at the link here. Please check out the latest issue and of course, let us know what you thought! Happy Holidays to all!
So, this week on Illustrious Bits marks one complete year since we started the group. It's week 44, but we went biweekly for a while in the summer I think. Anyway, lol, this week's them is Batwoman and I wanted to try something a little different so I decided to pull out my old acryllic paints and go to town. I don't know that I like the end result, but it's been a long time sine I painted. As this is the one year mark on Illustrious Bits and I have not missed a week, I thought it was always good timing for me to take a little break from this weekly project. I'm not leaving, but you won't see me doing every week anymore, just ones that I have time for or really want to try to do. Hope you all understand!

This week's theme on Illustrious Bits is "any Lord of the Rings character". I almost didn't get this one done, but found time to do this quick sketch of my favorite character from the series, Gollum! You gotta love him! lol.

With the help of Noel Short, the new Drumfish Productions website is being worked on. But the store for the site is up and functional!! Thanks to Jamie Fay for helping me set it up. Now I need some help from all of you who have read either Sentinels or Neverminds. Go over to the store site, check it out and if inclined or able to, write a review for one of the titles! We'd really appreciate the support and it'll be a great way for new readers to hear what others think.

This week's theme on Illustrious Bits is is Aeon Flux. I used to love the original animated series. The style was so bold and different and the movement of the characters was amazing. I considered drawing something with the infamous "fly in the eye" shot, but decided I wasn't quite feeling it.

Here's my entry for week 40 on Illustrious Bits! The theme for this week was any character from Fantastic Four. I couln't decide on just one member though, stop I decided to do all four of the original. :)

Here is another late post on a sketch from Illustrious Bits for week39's theme of "any character from Final Fantasy". I honestly don't know anything about Final Fantasy, so I picked a character that I found interesting visually. This is Lulu is from Final Fantasy X and specializes in the art of Black Magic, using various dolls to help cast spells.

I'm really late posting these last few submissions for Illustrious Bits on here. But this is my submission for week 38's theme "any character created by Chris Claremont". Originally, I planned to do my Classic X-Men collage for this, but I realized after I finished that Claremont did not create every character I drew. Luckily, I did all of the art in pieces and individually.
So, I decided to color Rogue and use her alone as my entry for week 38.

This is just a reminder that I'll be at the New York Comicon (NYCC) this weekend along with the creative team from NEVERMINDS, Jamie Fay and Danielle Alex St. Pierre. We'll be selling comics, figurines, prints, original art and taking commissions at the show! Please stop by and say hello! We'll be in Artist Alley at tables N12 and N13! Hope to see you there!
And just to give everyone a laugh, here's my poor puppy, Harlee, in a costume bought by my sister hoping she would get to go to comicon. :P
The second set of Drumfish Production figurines have arrived! Samanya from NEVERMINDS and Templar from SENTINELS look AMAZING! We're very proud of these statues and are excited to have them for NYCC this weekend. Each are $40 and we will be selling them at the show and also online. Note us if your interested in getting one or all!

Here is the latest print that I've done just in time for this week's New York Comicon! I had a poll on my DeviantArt page and asked followers what I should draw for my next print and a majority of them voted for the classic New X-Men team by Claremont and Cockrum. I really love that era and the characters are some of my favorites, so it was easy to get into drawing it. I decided to add Rogue in there as she joined shortly after and I wanted another female character in the picture. I was lucky to have NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay, help me put this all together in Photoshop (I drew each character seperately this time) and then lucky again to have SENTINELS artist, Luciano Vecchio, agree to color this for me! Thanks again, guys!

This week's theme on Illustrious Bits was any character with green skin. I actually picked this week's theme and intended to do a few different characters. But this being the week before the 2012 New York Comicon (NYCC), I have a ton of things to do and was only able to get one sketch done. I decided to draw Ms Martian from Teen Titans (and later the Young Justice cartoon). Not wild about the background pattern I did and this was kind of a rush sketch.
