As promised, this is the Raw images of the Red She-Hulk fan art I created (The version without the word bubbles). When I created these illustrations Red She-Hulk was brand new and I didn't know her secret identity. She was introduced as a mystery villain/rouge character so I thought she would make a great rival for Jen Walters aka She-Hulk "Prime". But it turned out to be Betty Ross aka Hulks girlfriend so she is a good guy now. It is not unusual for a bad character turn good like Venom, Magneto, Lady Death... man this list was hard to come up with, maybe it is unusual for villains to turn good. Anyways I guess I don't mind her turning out to be good but do we really need two good She-Hulks I think giving She-Hulk an arch nemesis would have been better but "whatta ya going to do?" Its all really cool comic book stuff anyways.

This illustration reminds me of my Graphic Design classes that I took at Daytona State College. I created this image back when I was taking classes and I remember I used a really large professional light table to ink the illustration (At home I use a make shift light table that I created with a lamp and an old glass table). I remember showing Chocolate Cheesecake to my mentor/design instructor for the first time. She had seen my illustrations before but she was still impressed, it made me feel awesome. This is one of my all time favorite illustrations it brings back good memories & I feel like I just got it right.

Alright Finally! Let me just say I would have posted this a lot sooner if it wasn't for life getting in the way lol. Okay on to it then... I drew these fan art illustrations back in March 2011, on bristol board paper with a mechanical pencil. But I never colored them in photoshop back then. So since I've been posting all of my old artwork to the blog I figure now would be a good time to color these images. So I colored it April 2014, in photoshop.
These short comics are inspired by the pages of Marvel Comics HULK vol.2 #16 --> https://comicstore.marvel.com/Hulk-Vol-2/comics-series/915 The plan was to do two pages of comic book art that was inspired by a current comic book so that I could personally judge myself in terms of page art. I think the test worked pretty well I was happy with the pencil line art so I never got around to coloring it.
I will post the raw images soon. "Raw" as in no word bubbles just the artwork. So stay tuned.

I created this short comic back in January 2010. She-Hulk is one of my favorite comic book characters and this is a short fan art comic of her. I remember I made the Pin-up of She-Hulk in the Venom outfit first, then after that I thought it would be cool to create a mini comic to go along with it. I only made two pages of this comic and I don't plan on making any more. However I do plan on doing more She-Hulk fan art in the future. I am working on a comic book that is way sexier than this one is that features my own original characters.
I drew these illustrations on 11x17 bristol board paper with mechanical pencils. Then I scanned the image onto my iMac where I colored it with Photoshop. The last step is to do the lettering in Adobe Illustrator. The process is pretty fun, I enjoy creating art its relaxing and the end result is cool to look at when your done.
Next up I will be posting Red She-Hulk short comic. Also I will post the raw illustrations of this short comic, Venom Cola, with no word bubbles.

I created this illustration back in November 2010. The illustration is an assignment for my illustration class, the assignment was to draw a self portrait as a comic book cover. I drew the artwork on bristol board 11x17 paper. I used pencil to draw the illustration then I inked it with a brush and archival pen. I colored the illustration in photoshop, and I used a program called Flame Painter to do the swooshing special effects.
We are getting down to the last of my old school illustrations. I saved the best for last and next I well be posting one of my most viewed short comics. After I finish posting my old school illustrations I will be posting brand new stuff including some illustrations of the independent comic book that I am drawing and writing myself. So stay tuned.

The illustration features the following characters. Helios who is a wereunicorn and his first apearance in the anime is "Meeting of Fate! The Night Where a Pegasus Flies". (Awesome super power by the way, you could totally get any woman you ever wanted if you could turn into a unicorn, just saying'). Peruru or "Perle" who is a fairy. First appearance was in Sailor Moon Super S movie. And finally Chibiusa which is the civilian identity of Sailor Chibi Moon. The most well known of the trio in this illustration she is the young, short Sailor Scout with the pink hair. Her first anime appearance is "An Angel? A Devil? Mysterious Girl from the Sky".
I used my old school manga style for this illustration but back then it was my current regular style. As seen in these other illustrations.

An old attempt at a young Superman & a young Wonder Woman. Anime style for sure. I created these images back in December 2009. I actually did a string of DC Comic characters in my cartoony anime style I will be posting the rest shortly. There is certainly room for improvement but not a total disgrace neither. I've always been proud of the work that I do and I put a lot of time and effort into my illustrations. But sometimes looking at old images does leave me feeling a little awkward... like "I can't believe I thought that image looked so awesome." Oh well heres to progress.

One of the first illustrations I colored with photoshop, the third if I remember correctly. Big Barda portrait was first, Fran's portrait was second and Harribel was third. The file on my computer says I colored it in 8/2009. This illustration is one of my favorites. I'm glad I pulled it out of the old vault. Ahhh... good times.

According to my file info on my Mac the sketch file says I scanned it in 4/26/2009 & the psd file says I started coloring this in 8/11/2009. So I finished drawing this illustration April 2009 & I colored it in August 2009. No school like the old school.
