Marvel Cinematic Universe Art Cards: Captain America



I got some news the other week that I will be at the Kraken Con show in Oakland.  In anticipation of the event, I drew up a set of art cards to sell based on the Marvel Cinematic universe.

Here is my first set: Captain America.  I did two cards with his two different uniforms.  The top card was from "The Avengers" and the second one was his World War II outfit from "Captain America: The First Avenger".

The cards were done with all sorts of art pens: .01 mm, .03 mm, .07 mm, .08 mm, and a Papermate Flair marker.

Kraken Con will be held in Oakland on October 4th and 5th.

Kissing Minions




A friend of mine recently asked if I can draw some minions as a part of a wedding gift.  I actually took a while to draw and redraw the lips kissing just right.

This picture also was  an exercise of making two figures proportional with each other.  Despite the fact that the Minions are easy to draw, it can still be a challenge to draw them looking the same size.

I drew the Minions in a black fat tip Sharpie marker.

College Comics 16


Here is part two of my epic story line.  Personally, the funniest part is not the third panel punchline, but the background gag of the bike rider tripping over the fallen guy.

Also, the mini gag of "Judo Push" and "Judo Trip" was totally inspired by "Austin Powers".

Black Widow Redux


When I did my other Black Widow picture, it made me nostalgic and I dug up an old picture that I did of her.  I based this one more on the movie version, with her shorter hair.

I don't care for the way her chin looks and that expression on her face looks like she is a little derpy.  Also, Nick Fury's nose looks too big.

It has been a while, but I am pretty sure I drew this picture with a G2 .07 mm tip gel pen.

Black Widow


Lately, I have been practicing drawing the female form in a sexy way.  What sexier character to draw than the Black Widow?  I also drew this as a practice for how lighting falls on a figure.

If you can believe it, this was all done on a black ball point pen.  I actually forgot what I used to draw this initially.  Sometimes I impress myself!

When I am supposed to be working...21


Here is a relatively quick sketch of the Scarlet Witch.  I have mentioned in the past that I am trying to practice drawing more sexy female body forms.  I really like the proportions of Scarlet Witch's body.  It is sexy without being too unrealistic and crass.

Another random thing I did is that I did not finish drawing her hands to imply that light is radiating out of it.  Scarlet Witch's right eye is also a bit of a mistake. I accidentally drew it a little too small compared to the left eye, but I added a little line at the bottom of the right eye to imply that she is half winking.  I actually like that mistake, because it gives her face a little more character.

Scarlet Witch was drawn with a blue ball point pen.

Brainiac Redesign



I mentioned before that I wanted to fully redesign Superman villain Brainiac from the top down.  I really went in a tried to make him look like a robot because I always thought that it was weird that he claims to be a robot but looks and acts like a humanoid character.

I based my design mostly on elements from his look in the eighties especially the hexagon patterns on his head.  As you can see from the here.
By Curt Swan

I tried to have some components mixed in there from other versions of Brainiac (who by the way, has a billion different versions).  The main theme I was going for was the three-circle motif.  In retrospect, I overdid it and drew too many of those three circles, making it look kind of redundant.

I drew Brainiac with a Papermate Flair medium size marker and a .01 mm art pen.

When I am supposed to be working...20


While I was bored, I drew a quick head sketch of Frankenstein and his bride.  Frankenstein is easy and fun to draw.  On the other hand, I am tried to get that shocked, wide-eyed look on the Bride's face, but I don't think that I quite pulled it off.  Here, she looks more like she found out the twist ending to "The Sixth Sense" or something.

Since this was at work, I drew this with a ball point pen.

College Comics 15


This is probably the first time that I did a multi-comic strip long story line.  Overall, I thought it was pretty good.

When I am supposed to be working...19


Happy Labor Day, everybody! In honor of Labor Day, I am posting yet another picture I drew when I really should have been working.

This is the Spider Queen, one of the few female villains of Spider-Man.  She has the ability to control insects, turn people into giant bugs, telekinesis, super strength, and sonic scream.  She is pretty ridiculously powerful.  The last time she was in a comic, she was the mastermind behind the events of "Spider-Island", which in my opinion is one of the best comic book crossovers I've ever read.

I have been on a drawing spree with drawing female figures lately because I have been sort of relearning how to draw female anatomy.  I tried to make the Spider Queen as sexy as possible without it being over-the-top T and A.

Since I drew this at work, I used a blue ballpoint pen.
