Chocolate Cheesecake

   This is an illustration of an original character I created named Princess Chocolate. I created this pin-up back in April 2010. I drew the image with a mechanical pencil on Bristol Board paper. Then I inked the illustration using a brush and a Archival pen. I scanned it into the computer and colored it with photoshop.

  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.

Princess Chocolate Portrait

    I created this portrait back in March 2010. It is an illustration of an original character that I created named Princess Chocolate. I drew the image on Bristol Board paper with a mechanical pencil then I scan the image into photoshop where I color it. Oh I also inked this image using a brush and ink pens.

    Will I can't believe its winding down. I'm down to the last few images left of my old school portfolio. I will be posting one of my favorite pin up illustrations next. So stay tuned.

Red She-Hulk Short Fanart

    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 --> 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.

Comic Book Art

 These are two remixes to illustrations that I created as covers for short comic books. The She-Hulk in the Venom outfit illustration has already been posted. The second image is of Red She-Hulk holding a bazooka. I color my illustrations in photoshop and every so often I play around and see what the images will look like if I colorize the the different layers that I work in. Just thought I would share. I will be posting the Red She-Hulk short comic soon.

Venom Cola

    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.

The Awesome Artistic Avenger

   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.
