Okay now back to work!

This piece was just a side piece that i just had to do just for the sake of it. It felt great just to let go. But now I'm back to work on my personal projects. The good news is my comic book script finally has a solid plot!!! I am so stoked to have gotten it there!! :)

The Iron Giant Project

Okay so my good buddy Dan Merisanu is hosting "The Iron Giant Project" and ask me to do a little something for his show. I think I have watched that entire film frame by frame at one point. Yes I was a little obsessive about that film and I think he knew that before he asked :)

Plugging along

Some more of my W.I.P. comic book development. It's just my cleaned up and slightly tightened ruff thumbnail (no that's a mouthful). This crew is the dirty over throwing government types. Just like the CIA's own ground grunts..... but in an alternate reality :)

A couple of finals!!

This is a little rare.. final work from me?? and not just one but two? weird :) i should buy a lottery ticket. Anyways I am happy with the gravity kiss but not so happy with the cherry bomb colors. My buddy Herod even helped me with it and it still isn't up to snuff :( Oh well you can't win 'em all.

Cherry Bomb Part 2....

Okay, so here I have tightened the piece up and it's now ready for final clean up. I failed to mention this last time but the bg was influenced by the great Masamune Shirow's "Appleseed".

Cherry bomb work in progress

This is for my buddy Wil Caligan's Cherry Bomb comic. Not sure when it's slated to be released but I shall keep Y'all posted.
I dont usually talk about my process but I thought it might be useful to someone :) So a bit about the process : I first ruffed out the entire concept on 8.5 x 11 which i didn't post, then i scanned it into PS3 where I dropped in two separate perspective grids on it. the firt being the bg perspective and secondly the perspective of the bike. the reason being is i didn't want the bike to sit exactly parallel to the side walk. yes it's a little more work (but not too much) to get the perspective to turn just a little bit ( correctly) but it's worth it, plus it makes the piece a little more dynamic and draws your eyes to the girl and bike as well.
I then printed out the two different grids and drew the bike on a separate sheet about 6 inches wide. I then printed the bg grid about 4 inches tall and 8 to a page so I could explore different bg ideas. I think it was the fourth thumbnail before i found this bg you see here. then i comp the two together in PS3 and whamo this is what you get.
I hope that was clear and I hope you dig :)
