I can't believe it's been almost a year since our last contest on deviantART! The first two contests were so amazing and so many talented artists contributed, that we had a really tough time picking the winners. But now we are opening our THIRD contest on our fanpage over at deviantART it's a great opportunity for all artists to contribute once again! Since we are planning to release NEVERMINDS #3 at the New York Comicon (NYCC) on October 11-14, 2012, we thought this was the perfect time to make this announcement.

Since we have two weeks now to get our drawings done for Illustrious Bits, I decided to do another sketch for this week's theme: Donna Troy. Since I already drew her Wondergirl look, I thought I'd do her adult "Troia" look (she later dropped the codename and just went by Donna Troy). I had fun with the hair and the stars. :)

This sketch of the three ladies from NEVERMINDS was drawn by the talented forces behind ID Comics! Penelope Rivera Gaylord drew Alanis, Jerry Gaylord drew Nina and Bryan Turner drew Samanya. I can't say enough great things about these artists and their work. Anyone who has not check out their art needs to do so right here!

Here are some updated pictures of the second set of figurines Drumfish Productions is doing. They really imporved Samanya and fix the issues we had with her flames and markings on her face. She looks perfect now and is ready for them to do the painted prototype before moving to production.

Here is the seventh and final sketch I did for Illustrious Bits theme of "any of Batman's Robins". I couldn't finish off this series without drawing the ultimate fangirl, Carrie Kelly, from the Dark Knight Returns. I had never drawn her before and I actually really enjoyed sketching her.

Here is the sixth of seven sketches I did for this week's theme of "any of Batman's Robins" on Illustrious Bits. Huntress is Helena Wayne, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman from Earth 2. Helena was originally Robin on her original world, but became Huntress here.

Here is the fifth Robin in DC's continuity (pre DCnU), Damien Wayne. This is also the fifth sketch I did for this week's theme of "any of Batman's Robins" for Illustrious Bits.Damien is a fun character to draw because he's such a brat.

Here is the fourth of my contributions to this week's them of "any of Batman's Robins" for Illustrious Bits.
This is Stephanie Brown (originally Spoiler!) the fourth Robin in DC's continuity (before the new 52). She went on to become Batgirl right before DC did their reboot, so I decided to draw her as we last saw here. When or if she appears in the DCnU remains to be seen.

Here is my third contribution to this week's theme of "any of Batman's Robins" theme on Illustrious Bits. This is the third Robin, Tim Drake, in his new look as Red Robin in the DCnU.
Illustrious Bits theme this week is "any of Batman's Robins", so I drew Jason Todd in his new identity of Red Hood. I really enjoy Jason as this charater. Very Cool!!

Here is the last of the three sketches I did for this week's "any character created by Rob Liefeld" theme on Illustrious Bits. I had a blast doing these and wish I had time to do more. Maybe next time! For now though, here is Cable from the X-Men. I can't believe it, but I honestly don't think I've ever drawn him before. I tried to give him a slightly Liefeldian chest here too, lol.

Here's another sketch done for Illustrious Bits week 30 theme, "any character created by Rob Liefeld". I had wanted to do a few sketches for this week, but was only able to get three done, all of them being Marvel characters. Here's a quick Deadpool headshot.
