HAMMER TIME!


THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY NEED SOMEONE SUPER-EVIL TO FIGHT AGAINST, AND THAT'S WHERE RONAN THE ACCUSER COMES IN. HE'S GOT A BIG HAMMER, BLUE SKIN AND A BAD ATTITUDE!

I SEEM TO REMEMBER THAT OL' RONAN IS USUALLY AN ENEMY OF THE FANTASTIC FOUR IN THE COMICS, BUT HE FITS IN GREAT WITH THE COSMIC ADVENTURES OF THE GUARDIANS. PLUS, THE INTRODUCTION OF A KREE VILLAIN MAKES WAY FOR US TO MEET Ms. MARVEL / CAPTAIN MARVEL / CAROL DANVERS! FINALLY A FEMALE HERO! CAPTIAN MARVEL AND THE INHUMANS AND THE 2 MARVEL FILMS I AM MOST EXCITED FOR IN THE YEARS TO COME!

THE ORIGINAL SKETCH FOR THIS PIECE IS BELOW. AS YOU CAN SEE I MADE A FEW SMALL TWEAKS TO MAKE THE COSTUME MORE LIKE THE ONE IN THE FILM. ALSO, I DON'T KNOW WHY I WROTE "DESTROYER" INSTEAD OF "ACCUSER".  IT'S A NERD FAUX PAS!


FEELIN' BLUE


THE REAL STAND OUT VILLAIN OF GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FOR ME WAS BLUE SKINNED BAD ASS NEBULA. (A LOT OF THE BAD GUYS IN THIS FILM SEEM TO HAVE BLUE SKIN.
HMMMM . . .)

KAREN GILLIAN DID A GREAT JOB PLAYING HER AS BOTH CUNNING AND UNHINGED. HER PROMINENCE IN THE FILM NOW MAKES THIS 3rd RATE MARVEL COMICS BADDIE A MAJOR NAME IS THE ARCH NEMESIS ARENA.

I'VE INCLUDED AN INKED BLACK & WHITE PIC OF HER HEAD BELOW, JUST 'CUZ I THINK IT TURNED OUT NICE.

SPACE PIRATE


YONDU WAS THE ONLY ORIGINAL ("O.G.") GUARDIAN TO MAKE IT INTO THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FILM. THOUGH HE WASN'T A TEAM MEMBER THIS GO-ROUND, HE DID SERVE AS STAR LORD'S ADOPTIVE FATHER.

IT KIND'A BUGGED ME THAT MANY OF THE MEN IN HIS BAND OF SPACE PIRATES WERE NORMAL SKINNED PEOPLE, AS OPPOSED TO BLUE SKINS, LIKE HIMSELF. I GUESS MAYBE THEY WERE ALL KIDNAPPED FROM EARTH AS WELL? ANYWAYS, I'M INTO HIS WEIRD METAL CYBER MOHAWK HEAD IMPLANT THINGIE!

COLLECT 'EM ALL!


THE COLLECTOR, PLAYED BY BENICO DEL TORO IN THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MOVIE, IS ONE OF THOSE SECONDARY CHARACTERS WHERE IT WAS HARD TO FIND A GOOD PICTURE OF HIS WHOLE OUTFIT. THROUGH A FEW GOOGLE SEARCHES, I PIECED HIS LOOK TOGETHER AND FAKED THE REST. IN THE END, I'D DAY I DID A GOOD JOB W/ IT. I ESPECIALLY LIKE HIS ALIEN ANIMAL SKIN CAPE (SHEARLING LINED, FOR THE WINTER MONTHS IN SPACE, OF COURSE)
I WONDER IF HE'LL SHOW UP IN FUTURE MARVEL MOVIES?

CITY ANIMALS

HEY KIDS! HERE'S MY NEWEST WORK FOR MTV.COM. THE TOPIC THIS TIME IS 7 FUNNY ANIMAL GIFS THAT TEACH YOU NEW YORK CITY SURVIVAL. I WANTED TO GIVE EACH ILLUSTRATION IT'S OWN COLOR THEME, BUT I ACCIDENTALLY DID 2 OF THEM WITH PURPLE TONES. LET'S JUST PRETEND ONE OF THEM IS PINK, OK?

COLORS OF THE WORLD


I'VE BEEN EXCITED TO GET TO WORK ON THIS SPICE GIRLS PAPER DOLL SET FOR A WHILE. THE FINALE LOOKS FROM THE 2007 RETURN OF THE SPICE GIRLS TOUR REPRESENT THE ICONIC SILHOUETTES AND COLOR CHOICES OF THE 5 GIRLS. NOW, WE KNOW VICTORIA USUALLY CHOOSES TO WEAR BLACK, BUT WHEN THE GIRLS HAVE TO WEAR A BRIGHT COLOR SHE ALWAYS SEEMS TO WIND UP IN GREEN.

THE GIRLS ORIGINALLY HAD A DIFFERENT, MILITARY INSPIRED SET OF COSTUMES FOR THE FINALE OF THE SHOW, BUT THOSE SEEM TO HAVE BEEN SWITCHED OUT FOR THE ONES PICTURED ABOVE QUITE QUICKLY. I'LL PROBABLY DRAW THOSE LOOKS IN THE FUTURE AS WELL.
