Coyote & Tarantula

Here are two more members of my Allies team, Coyote and the robot Tarantula. These guys are my versions of Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, always getting into trouble, but always trying to do their very best.

Both come from the wrong side of tracks. Coyote being the grandson of the god of fire and lies Loki and Tarantula being created by the dictator The Widow to be her personal spy and thief. When they realized they were working for the wrong people the two of them decided to go into hiding and steal from the criminals. They have stolen money from every criminal, terrorist and spy organization on the planet. To date they have stolen 6.5 billion dollars in just under three years and nobody knows who's done it. Of course all the money has gone to charities, hospitals, libraries and after school programs, although they did keep a little to buy their own bar in Chicago.

Hulk Smash!!!

Sketch of Dr. Banner, will have a finished one up soon.

Flower child

Here are a couple of different looks for a character I'm currently working on. Her name is Noble Brigit, she is kinda an elfish/nymph character. She will have tattoos all over her body to protect her from harm so Im working on what that will look like on her. But here are some quickies. Thanks for looking

Allies summer special

Here are some pages of a short comic I did for my superhero group The Allies over the summer. Not posting all the pages since Im not pleased with the whole thing. This was more of a test drive to see if I could do something like this. You'll notice that in future posts that some of the characters will have changed due to the kind of dynamic I want the team to have.

Superman's cousin

Just a quick one of Superman's only real cousin Power Girl.

One hell of a guy!

Just a quickie of one of my favorite characters of all time, Hellboy!! 
Mike Mignola is a god and I cant wait to see the new movie!

Self portrait

I did these little self portraits in Adobe Illustrator for my main website. Look at my gigantic thumb!! It will consume you, it will consume you all!!!
Thanks for looking. 
I reworked my Ironfist. This time I did it all in Adobe Illustrator. It was driving me crazy that he didn't have his other foot. I have to work on his glowing hand some more, but I'm happy with it right now. Thanks for looking.

New kid on the Flight

Could somebody please tell me why everybody thinks killing Alpha Flight and starting from scratch is such a great idea. They have done it like three times I think. Killing a character off just shows a lack of creativity on the part of the people writing it. I mean in a bizz where a character comes back from the dead more times then Jenna Jameson has porn movies it just suprises me when they think they cant make the original team of Alphans interesting or important in the marvel universe. The last time I picked up an issue was the last reboot with characters like some 90 year old with superpowers and Pucks daughter who is (of course) Asian and a bartender. They tried to make it like Justice League when it was written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis. Totally new and cooky! Now it was kinda funny but it just wasnt interesting at all... except for one thing. I think it mainly had to do with the art but I liked the Plodex child they discovered. Calling him (what else) Mar, cause he looked just like Marrina, he eventually became an Alphan. Now what happened to this kid since everybody except Sasquatch was killed by the great idea called The Collective is unknown. We'll probably never see him again... But here he is with some originals. Talisman is now Shaman after her father retired from the superhero bizz. She carries both her tiara and her father's medecine bag. Heather is present with her and Mac's new baby boy and yes that is Box behind her. I love the original Box but I liked the jim lee version that had Jeffries iside transforming it as he needed. Aurora is by herself with a new bob and more elfish since thats how I always see her that way. She is flashing a little light to show she doesnt need her brother Northstar to use her light powers. I never understood why all the speedsters in the marvel universe were jerks so Northstar was not asked to join my team. I tried to go a little ultimate with Pucks outfit but Im gonna have to work on that. Thanks for looking

Sweet Christmas!!!

After posting Ironfist last night I just had to do his best friend Luke "Power-Man" Cage! I tried to give him more of an old (dare I say it) Gee look, the old player on the block that nobody messes with (the man can bench press a tank so I gave him his yellow shirt back too). I hate the fact that Marvel makes pretty much any black character that they have bald... I think the only one who has hair is The Falcon, so I wanted to give him back his fro as well as his old colors. I'm not really liking how his left hand came out so I might change that later. Thanks for looking.

The Immortal Ironfist!!

Just felt like doing some sketches of Danny "Ironfist" Rand from Heroes for Hire and couldn't stop till I did a color test on one. His best bud Luke Cage is on the way but Im having trouble with the fro (you'll see)...

Introducing Alpha The All-American

Here is my patriotic hero. She's what would happen if Jean Grey and Captain America had a kid. Idea being she is the ultimate human with a mind like Tony Stark and the telekinetic abilities of Jean Grey.
Another of the good captain. You can see some of his teammates in this one. They'll be up soon

Captain Neutron debuts

Here is one of my oldest characters that is in a group I am developing called The Allies. His name is Captain Neutron he is kinda my Adam Strange/Captain Comet pulp Sci-Fi hero. I'll be posting the other members soon as well as a short story I did over the summer.
