Hey , you poozers. I just did a sketch with color pencil, regular pencil, Pentel brush pen, and a Prismacolor double ended marker. Thought it might be cool to show the result.

Kilowog is a Member of the Green Lantern Corps and is a kick butt character.


I hope you like it. Come back now yah here!!

Here's one for Macky, the fact is that I like DC a lot. I drew Ralph Dibney/ Elongated Man in his element (looking for clues). I couldn't remember exactly what his costume looked like, when I was at work, so I drew him in regular clothes.

The weeks almost over but I have a few sketches. I started sketching hulk then started drawing Wolverine. They came out pretty good. I can usually draw Wolverine without thinking about it but I seem to have trouble sometimes with getting Hulk just right.





I am going to try and draw more established characters. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
Well , that's my update for the week.

Wheels of time keep on turning

Got some new sketches as well as some art from issue 2 of Earth Sons. We'll start off with Mr. Gino Bino. Pointing his greasy finger at some poor employee. Just a fun little nonsense sketch.











Here's the first version of the cover for Earth Sons #2. It got a "not dynamic /exciting enough". I colored it myself since it wasn't going to the colorist. I still like the image and might put it in the trade paperback when it comes out.










This is the inked drawing that is going to be used for the cover. A little more actiony. Not much action occurs in the issue so I was hesitant to do an action packed cover, but it came out pretty good and I can't wait to see how the colorist (Jennifer Streiner) finishes it off.




These pages are from the arrival of Aleyen the main character (the human) into the kingdom of the Katawa society. The katawa are race of half human/ half feline gentically enhanced creatures. They are led by a lord name Kero Padyr. Read more about them at DarkOceanStudios.com











Well, that is it for today. There will be more soon. So come on back yah hear.






Have a good one.

Well my first comic book is now on sale at indyplanet.com. It's called Earth Sons and it is looking to be a cool book. With a story by Jody Parker, Art by me, and colors/lettering by Jennifer Streiner, it turned out really good. The upcoming issues get better with every page.
You can learn more about it at Darkoceanstudios.com
Check out the first couple pages at Indyplanet.com and order up a helping of coolness.


Here's the Cover to the first issue which you can click to go to the ordering page.





Here are some more sketches from work.

It's the beginning of a New Year and new things begin. I recently got a job that has downtime and in the downtime I've been sketching and planning for projects that I can work on when I get home. This Blog is the place where I'll be posting these sketches as well as the finishes and other art that I'm working on.



The first is a Batman piece that came out pretty good. It's done in ballpoint pen ink on the back of some scrap paper I had at the time. I love ballpoint because it has the most bleeding ability of ink pens and they are easiest to find anywhere.









I call this " The engineer". Again ballpoints are easy enough to use and find anywhere you are. I might do some coloring on this one in the future.






I did this one over a couple days in spurts of 15 minute sessions. Her name is clif.


That's it for this first day of bloggery.
I'm hoping to get out a few pictures each week. so check back on Sundays to see what progress has been made. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you will come back soon.
