DC Legacies #6, p3 prelim with finished pencils

DC Legacies#6, p3 prelim on EBAY

Here's a layout/prelim done for a complicated page in Legacies, where there are lots of characters saving lots of people. This issue was written for George Perez, who had to bow out, and he handles these scenes much better than I can. I did my best:)

Finished pencils are here.

JLA-Planetary unused cover idea

JLA/Planetary rejected cover sketch on EBAY click here

Here's a cover sketch I really liked, that was not chosen, for the JLA/Planetary crossover I drew about ten years ago. I wound up doing a fair number of sketches for this project, which I will post another time. This also started from a small bounding box at the middle of the page, but I felt the view was too close-up, so I drew past that line, to make it a full figure shot. Then whited out the smaller inset lines. Shows the organic nature of drawing.

Superman/Doomsday Action Comics variant cover

Superman/Doomsday Action Comics prelim on EBAY

This was done as a variant cover for the last issue of Action Comics, #904, I think. Anyhow, the Doomsday here is an evolved version, and I just couldn't wrap my brain around the costume or the reference I had, so I didn't feel the confidence in drawing this one. If you compare the printed version, you can see I was altering stuff up until the end. The file I sent to the editor was flopped, and cropped as well, by me. But it all worked out in the end.

Avengers:Domination Factor cover sketch

Avengers cover sketch on ebay, click here

Here's a cover sketch for issue#3 of Avengers: Domination Factor, a miniseries I wrote and drew a few years back. Dan Jurgens did the companion mini, Fantastic Four: Domination Factor, with the story intersecting, and then resolved in both books. It was a really fun project to do, and always fun to collaborate with Dan.

Tom Strong #5 cover sketch

Tom Strong #5 cover sketch/ prelim on EBAY click here

Here's a neat cover sketch for Tom Strong #5, that wound up as the prelim to finish the cover. Scott Dunbier had tried to get me to do some Tom Strong before this, but here I got to draw a great little story that Alan Moore wrote for me. This was the first of many Tom Strong jobs I did, and it was a great experience. Scott, as an editor is such an art fan, he's a guy you try hard to impress:)

Batman tonal drawing with Copic markers

Batman with bat-signal copic marker tonal drawing on EBAY

Here's another drawing, shaded with Copic markers, that I did in some down-time. I'm liking the way these work, and I feel like I'm getting the hang of them finally. May be time to buy some color Copics!
