The theme for week 34 on Illustrious Bits is "Any Disney Villain". I wasn't sure how my style would translate to Disney characters, but I defintely knew who I wanted to draw. Maleficent is easily the most striking Disney villain to me. She just has an odd beauty and evilness to her that I don't think many other Disney villains have. I'm excited to see the live action movie with Angelina Jolie when it comes out!

Here is an updated progress look at Samanya from second set of Drumfish Productions' figurines. There are still some things that need to be fixed on her, but we're getting closer to seeing her finished. She's looking AWESOME!!

This sketch of Alanis Munroe from Neverminds was drawn by Ben Harvey at 2012 Wizard World Philly Con. Ben is a super nice guy and very talented artist. I was wowed by his art the moment I saw it and quickly asked him to draw this. Check out more of Ben's art at www.graphitebite.blogspot.com .
Another awesome sketch from Emilio J. Lopez draw at the 2012 MOCCA Con in NYC. Emilio had drawn one of the Sentinels previously, so I thought I'd have him draw one of the Neverminds characters this time. He picked Nina to draw and did a great job. Please check out more of Emilio's work at www.e-mann.deviantart.com .
This sketch of the three main characters from Neverminds was drawn by James Boyle at the 2012 Wizard World Philly Con. James' art was very impressive and I love what he did with the ladies here! Especially Samanya! Please check out more of James' art at www.jamesboyle.com .
One of the first people I met when I started doing conventions was Dave Perillo (and his partner in crime, Scott Derby). I've been a big fan of Dave's ever since and often get sketches from him at cons. Here are the three main characters from Neverminds drawn at the 2012 Wizard World Philly Con. Currently, Dave (along with Scott Debry and Tom Whalen) are part of a art big show in NYC as part of "C...razy 4 Cult" which runs from August 9, 2012 to Spetember 1, 2012 and is at the Gallery1988 NYC Pop-Up Store located at 64 Gansevoort St., NYC, NY 10014. Check it out if you have a chance! I loved the show and plan to see it again (opening night was crazy crowded!)
Here is a cool collection of Sentinels characters. Crusher and his oldest son Terry with Agent Huggins. This sketch was drawn by Fred Choa at the 2012 Wild Pig Con! Fred is a very talented artist who writes and draws his own work. Please check out Fred's work at www.fredchao.com

I almost didn't do a sketch for the latest theme for Illustrious Bits. Week 33 was "any character from Super Marios Bros." and I totally forgot about it! I was able to sneak out this sketch of Princess Peach over the weekend though. I was told her name used to be Princess Toadstool, lol. I kinda like that better. It's funnier.
