You could make a drinking game out of the amount of times I draw Kiddo examining her own powers. She does it once an issue at least and it’s my go to pose for her stand alone pictures. It’s always impressive. Especially when you consider how far I’ve come. I’m really trying to get a handle on this 1/4 angle – it’s kicking my ass. Still looks bizarre to me, might look better in the panels of the comic – make those standard profile shots look more dynamic. :shrug: My favorite part of Kiddo is all that luscious red hair. I knew I wanted her to be wearing green before I even drew her clothes. Can you tell that I’m been reading X-men lately? Thought I’d draw my own all powerful ginger and flex my technique and fashion muscle a little. Not really a fan of X-men Blue cause it’s a friggin mess. Gold and Red are by far my favorites because it has my man as a main character. Just got done reading Phoenix Resurrection and I’m gonna dive into some Rogue and Gambit just cause I love them so much

Last time I drew Del she was fast asleep. This time she’s wide awake and ready to make someone sorry they messed with her. Dressed to kill – my badass boss lady. Y’know I’m realizing a lot of my pictures start because I see a cute pair of shoes on pinterest. The original pair were peep toe but I put a gold toe on this cause you can’t really see the front at this angle. Speaking of which I thought it had been a while since I played around with the perspective tool in CSP. This time instead of an arial shot I thought I’d try a mid-height city, on a glass balcony just to torture myself. Two things I suck at: drawing water and drawing glass.

Rather random drawing of Sonya I felt like doing after finishing issue #6. Yup! Issue #6 is now officially remastered and formatted and with luck it’ll be printed this month! You only see Sonya for about three panels in issue #6 and maybe that’s why I drew her – I missed her. Plus it’s spring time now and if there’s any season that fits my bright girl it’s spring. She’s all bright colors and flowers and beautiful things. My pretty Sonya 🙂
Pic is called ‘Baby Knows’ cause she can read minds…

Sorry for the lack of updates but its harder than it looks writing and drawing two comics and having about 10 active fan OCs. Even still Illegal Tender will be at Momocon 2019 – now under the name of it’s creator: MUSASHDEN!
Zen was getting increasingly worried when Del didn’t answer her calls. So she went back to the bar to find her hard working girlfriend asleep at her desk. Poor sweet Del – she does so much for everyone. Running an underground speakeasy for supers is hard work. Zen knows that Del is being targeted by the agency. Right now she’s just relieved that the only person to catch her is the Sandman.
Illegal Tender will be at the Atlanta Sci-fi & Fantasy Expo – March 3rd & 4th

These two – I swear. Their relationship is unique to say the least. They’re not as grossly romantic as Sonya and Darkly. But man do they love each other. Emil has never met a woman as intense as Lily. She loves to shoot. And she loves to train. There isn’t really anyone who can keep up with Emil until Lily comes along and they bond over her desire for revenge. And then once she’s gotta that revenge they just keep it up because why not. I’m glad I get to show their aspect of the relationship in the comic. Issue #3 shows him really teaching her and by Issue #5 they are go from being ‘frienemies’ to ‘sweet on each other’. Blink and you’ll miss it but the development is there… and then there’s what happened at the end of issue #6.
Anyway just a little something of these two that’s less cuddly. Nothing says ‘LOVE’ like kickboxing with your OTL without padding

Happy New Year!! First pic of the year I felt just had to be my boy Hunter. And since it’s 2018 I imagined what he’d look like at 18 years old. It’s not a far stretch from his age in the comic now (which is 15/16) but literally the day he turns 18 Hunter goes out a gets a new accessory in honor of his mother. Not sure how Ellie would feel about her baby having a big ass hand tattoo but it looks cool doesn’t it? Hunter is such a precious baby with his mop curls and crocked smile. He’s actually an excellent little brother – always supportive of his twin and older sister… even when they fly off the handle. My Huney-bun deserves all the love in the world
Nobody else might notice but it freaks me out how much I actually made him look like his father. He’s like a tan, curly haired John minus the freckles. He’s John all over except for his eyes – all the Breland kids have their mother’s eyes.

Zen partaking in her favorite passtime – reading about her favorite superhero – The Flash. In a TPB of course. Zen loves the Flash because they have the same power and people love him. See Zen live in a world where people hate super powered people. She may be a speedster but she runs knowing she’s one step away from being locked in a jail cell for the rest of her life. But it doesn’t keep her from using her powers. Her mother taught her not live in fear. To be who she is no matter what. And Zen takes pride in the fact that no one can catch her. She can make it around the world in a day…
I wanted to add something else to this but I noticed too late that the perspective is off Still love it cause look at that beautiful face.

Oh poor Emil – he’s not at all prepared to have such a sexy girlfriend. Thought of this yesterday – what would the crew of the I.T. bar dress up like for halloween. Well Emil’s go-to costume it of course a vampire. He already has the widows peak and naturally big, pointy teeth and he’s just so freakin pale. In fact a lot of people have noted his similarity to my actually vampire character Samael. I ended up using nearly the same color palette when creating them they are actually not related at all. Anyway, when Emil tells Kiddo that their couples costume should be vampires Kiddo knew exactly how to get his goat. She dressed up like the classic comic femme fatale: Vampirella. LOL
Happy Halloween from the crew of I.T
