Troll sketch card for The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey

This is my final illustration done for The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey trading card set. 

And although this isn't a very popular or sought after character by collectors, this is seriously one of my favorite cards from the set.... Wish I had kept it.

Walking dead sketch cover commission

Here is a walking dead sketch cover commission that I think I completely forgot to post.

I was asked to recreate a walking dead cover, but replace Rick grimes with the clients friend. Fun job!

Army of Darkness sketch cover commission!

Here's a commission for my buddy Nick. It's a sketch, on an army of darkness #1 blank variant comic. I have to admit that these covers are a real challenge.... They take ink halfway decent ( although it takes a bit longer to dry, so you have to be careful) but it doesn't take marker very well. Only lighter shades, and you can't blend, and the markers colors you do lay down, come out several shades lighter than they normally would due to the lack of absorbency of the stock. So I used a variety of ink washes , thin layers of markers & colored pencil to try & get the color to work. The results were better than I'd hoped, however it is far less vibrant and saturated than my normal marker drawings... These covers are best suited for black & gray...

Phat con!

Phat con was so much fun... It was super busy, which was great. I didn't eat anything all day except for a blue moon.... But still had a great time. 

I unfortunately didn't take many pics because dave and busters was so dark & my iPad doesn't have a flash... So, oh well...

But I just wanted to let you know it was fun, and it was a free event, so you should go every year, because if it keeps growing, it won't be free for long.
