Elektra comic book sketch cover


I didn't have a game-plan going into this one and was basically winging it the whole way through. I  did a google search of "elektra cosplay" for a reference pic and drew it out. I laid a light red watercolor wash down for her costume and inked in her hair and stabby-weapons. I shaded all the fleshy areas in with a regular HB lead pencil and used prismacolor pencils to finish the costume. Finally, I threw some more watercolor splatters on it and called it a day.

another Lou Ferrigno Incredible Hulk sketch cover commission


Did this one a month ago but forgot to post it, probably because my scanner wasn't working at the time. The client sent me a scan after he got it signed by Lou Ferrigno.

Deadpool sketch cover commission



This is the first teeny tiny step towards incorporating extra text in some of these sketch cover illustrations. Hopefully the idea that he is being shot at is being adequately conveyed and it isn't too subtle.

Black Widow Avengers sketch cover



Took a break from these, just doing a few quick pencil sketches with light color washes to shake off the rust.

Harley Quinn sketch cover commission



Client requested the new Margot Robbie version of Harley Quinn from the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. I went online looking for any decent reference shots and found this image which seemed like a fun one to do.

Doctor Who & Clara sketch cover commission



I drew Clara first, and then ran into a issue because I'm right-handed. I was gonna have to either cover her to draw the doctor without smudging the image or flip the book upside-down. So I flipped the book and drew him upside-down because I didn't trust myself to not smudge her.

When looking for a good reference image of Capaldi, I came across a candid shot of him taking a selfie with a fan at some event and he was making the perfect face that I was looking for. Also, it was turned the right amount to fit in the available space where none of his features would end up being blocked by her.
