Daily Sketch: Nightwing and Robin - Atkins Family Team up

This was a fun commission. A friend in Chicago commissioned my brother Brian and I to do this cover. He wanted a Nightwing and a Robin, and didn't really mind what version. Brian and I are both huge fans of the Young Justice show and the character designer who worked on it. So since we had our choice, we went with that design.

I've only had a few chances to work with my brother on a commission or professionally, but it's always so awesome. You can see Brian's work here on his Deviant Art gallery.


 He's been busy with commissions and he's drawing a book for Comics Experience that'll be published by IDW soon!

Daily Sketch: Beachhead...

Another cover sketch back from NYCC last year. Busy scene, but fun to do for sure! I always dig drawing vipers. I'd like to put together a sketchbook or do a theme on my blog of all the cobra troopers and vipers.

Daily Sketch: TMNT Colors...

Just another step in the process. Colors here by Simon Gough on our TMNT cover project. He worked to keep the colors relatively clean so they wouldn't detract from the rest of the parts of the cover. It's fun to see the line art colored up in a classic style.

Daily Sketch: TMNT Covers...

This last summer I've signed on to do over a dozen Ninja Turtle covers for IDW. I'm crazy excited about a chance to draw the whole cast of the series. At least most if not all the major characters. It'll probably be awhile before I can show any of the final production art. It'll be covers for a new company doing exclusives.

Until I can show some of the final product art, here's some of the small line art that'll be part of all the covers.

Daily Sketch: Liono Thundercats...


Just a quick head sketch today. I think this was done, about 10 min sketch at Heroes con. I never think I'm very good at doing quick sketches, but head shots like this aren't too hard.

Daily Sketch: D&D Character Tural Lighthammer colors...

I posted a little while back the inks for this character sketch. Colors by Simon Gough, as always the colors here bring out the atmosphere and character.

It's always a fun change of pace to do these kinds of character sketches. Hopefully my work schedule will allow me to fit in a few more soon.

Daily Sketch: Green Lantern Colors...

Not technically a sketch, but it's a colored version of one of the sketches I posted this month of Green Lantern. This one was done by my pal Simon Gough. Not for the official project, he just wanted to do this as a fun warm up for his work day. I of course was happy to see him do it, and man it lines up so well with the other GL piece I have done by Kyle Ritter. So cool to see these side by side!
