Green Lantern - Hal Jordan!

I love the Len Wein/Dave Gibbons Green Lantern from the 80's.
Probably my favorite take on Hal Jordan.

Tried to capture some of that fun with this picture. Not too shabby.

Kinda like this one. Cute.


With a name like NightBeat...I thought a disco theme would be good.

Transformers...Dancers in Disguise!

This is the late Conner Kent...Superboy.

Not too thrilled with it. I kinda screwed up his arm...apart from that it's decent.

Oh well....I'll do better next time.

Golden Age Sandman!

I was trying something different with the inking of this image. I went for more blacks and less detail. I think it turned out okay for my first experiment.

Wesley Dodds looks good in Black & White.

Thugs Case Files

As a way of breaking up the 'Thugs' chapters... Al has put together some 'Case Files'.
The case files are basically some background information on the chracters that appear in 'Thugs'.

First up is 'DarkCowl' and 'The Finch'.

Go to and enjoy!

Heroes Exposed - Script to Screen #4

Here's the finished B&W for Kevin to add speech balloons and color.

I added the borders in photoshop. The border is 5 point pencil line and I also cleaned up the fuzzy stuff from scanning the page in with the eraser tool. I also fixed the last image. The one that the cigarette smoke was bugging me.

Now it's in kevin's hands to add the magic.

Heroes Exposed - Script to Screen #3

Above is the inked version.

What I've done is inked over the blue pencil lines...scanned the image into photoshop at 300 dpi.
Used levels and brightness and contrast to get rid off the blue line and then grayscaled the image.

Next step is to add the panels and clean up the drawing a little bit more in photoshop. For example...the chimps cigarette in the last panel. The smoke is kinda screwed I'm gonna remove some of it and hope that Kevin can make it look good in other words...cover up my screw-up. ;-)

Heroes Exposed - Script to Screen #2

Above is the pencilled version of the script.

I've added a few changes as you can see...and I've also included suggestions for the balloon placement (sometimes I'll do that so some of the art isn't covered up.

(Sometimes it matters to me and sometimes it don't...I'm weird that way!)

I scan it in a send a ruff to Kevin to see if he likes the additions I made. Kevin's pretty flexible and anything I suggest he goes with it. He's awesome that way.

Heroes Exposed - Script to Screen #1

Okay....I've decided to post different the different stages of how I create the Heroes Exposed strip.

1. First I get the script from Kevin. Sometimes it's detailed, sometimes it's vague. In this's a bit vague...which I don't mind and quite like because it leaves me a lot of room to throw in my own ideas. I've pasted the script below's a Superpets themed one. The idea actually came from Peter Rios of the ComicGeekSpeak podcast. I had talked to him about writing a guest spot and he mentioned the Superpets. Unfortunately, he didn't get the chance to write it...but I mentioned it to Kevin...and Kevin drummed up this number.

Here's a new script. I'll more than likely chage the dialogue as usual, but the gist is the same. Thanks

LEX- Where are they now? Today we talk with one time hero Beppo.

BEPPO- (smoking, blowing out smoke, he has a monkey comb over, whatever that looks like, and a suit)Hey Lex. Glad to be here.

LEX - So the team, where are they now. You've just written a tell all, give us some details.

BEPPO- (he is holding up the book, have fun with the cover) Its been a tough road for some of us...You can do the next panels like pages from the book maybe, like picture pages they do in the middle in the book. Fairly large.

BEPPO- Streaks pretty much burned out on supernip.(Streaky- Do a mug shot having him really strung out looking. Almost like a Bill the Cat look.)

BEPPO- Krypto went all show business. (Not sure about this surprise me) BEPPO- And well...Comet...well that was just sad(A bottle of glue like the rubber cement, with Super Glue on it.)

Big Iron Pin-Up!

A pin-up for Kevin Volo's and Uriel A. Duran's western epic...Big Iron!

Of course, poor Kev will have to color it and slap the logo on it.

This drawing is based on Jonah Hex No. 16. The greatest western series ever!!!! (apart from 'Big Iron' of course!)


...on a trampoline!

Happy with the expression...but not much room for the trampoline.

Oh well.
