The Shield #2

Here's the cover to The Shield #2 which I got the opportunity to color myself. It was quite a learning experience once again. I actually messed up my settings from the start so I had to re adjust all the color palettes after I was completely done. Fun and frustrating all at once.

Sketchbooks and SDCC

Hey folks so here's the deal. I'll be attending San Diego Comic-Con from July 22-26 I'll be at table DD-09. I'll also be releasing my art book then. Unfortunately I'll only have about 200 copies or so at the con and I won't be taking any pre-orders, it will be first come first serve. I'll probably do some pre-done books with the popular characters like batman, superman etc. if you have a special request just try to hit me up at my table early and I'll put you down on the list. The books will be $25, or $60 with a simple sketch. The book is 8.75"x 11.25" hard cover, with a dust jacket, and 24 pages of my ink wash work and some full color. But the whole book is printed in color to maximize the clarity and integrity of the original black and white ink wash and water color. I'll make the books available online once I receive the rest of my shipment which wont happen until after SDCC, so keep an eye out for an update about online ordering. Here are some crude photo's of my artist proof of the book. (note the pages are in the wrong order in this proof but has been corrected in the final printing). Anyways hope to see some of you guys there!
