Come Home Soon

Scan 11

Del hates it when Zen goes on missions without her. She’s aware that her girlfriend is faster than a speeding bullet and a skilled asskicker she still worries. Zen just reminds her that she’ll be back before she can even be missed.

 

You’re Willing and Happy to See

Cast13-unfinished

Just the crew hanging out on the roof of the bar until it’s time to open for the night. This negates everything I’ve said about Emil being afraid of heights but I imagine their not up that high so he’s okay with his legs being over the edge like that. Plus if he slips, Kiddo will catch him :)

This took like five days to complete. I wanted something new of the crew that didn’t have the I.T. logo all over it to sell at Momocon (just in case someone likes the style but doesn’t want to represent the comic like that). Not sure what my table number is yet but I’ll keep posting

Power Couple

This was originally going to be a pic of her protecting him. My process on Vine you can sort of see where Emil was going to be behind her at first. But it turned into this which is cuter. I was also going to call it ‘The Green Team’

Haven’t drawn these two together in a while and I didn’t want the regular kissy pic I do of my couples. This might be good enough for a postcard print. Buy Issue #1

Something cute I thought of when trying to decide who to draw. I realized I’ve never drawn Katherine and Hunter together. It’s even cuter because they are both half black. Hunter is black and white – Katherine is black and asian. Team mixed kids for real! I love it when I get to show black people come in way more colors than how they are represented in mainstream comics. These two started out very rocky but just like Emil and Kiddo they’ll eventually end up together – until Kathy goes off to college :( But that’s not for a while so in the mean time we have cocky selfies on instagram.

Her hair makes her slightly taller than him – 2 freakin cute
Hunter and Katherine are featured in Illegal Tender. But the first issue now!! http://www.illegaltendercomic.com/buy-issue-1

What a pair! I haven’t drawn these two in a while. What with getting issue 1 up for sale and ordering stuff for Momocon I haven’t had time to draw except ironically when I’m at work. Still all up in Adele 21 and 25 and I thought of this when I was listening to ‘One and Only’. I don’t really get to bring it up in the comic but these two are not really the ‘relationship’ types – until they meet each other. Del was so consumed with fighting the agency and Zen… well Zen is young so neither one was really holding on to any kind of commitment. But you spend so much time together and you realize that hot black girl is looking at your boobs and things just unfold from there.

Boss Lady Bust

IMG_20160103_230400

Started a process post on vine and it turned into Del! Her usual lip olor is pink but I thought I’d try something different for this quick bust drawn on my cintiq. The Boss Lady look fierce, no?

Final Fantasy Kiddo

Behold the first round of my latest series of stand alone drawings. I decided to draw the crew in different anime and video game styles. Starting with a few of my favorites from the way back year of 2000 when they finally made it big in America.

Final Fantasy Kiddo: My favorite video game of all time has got to be Final Fantasy 7. I have no idea what drew me to the game but the summer of 2000 I was all about this game and I am counting the days until the remake comes out. what better homage to pay than to draw my main girl in the FFVII style. Fifteen years later I still love it! Her outfit is not that much changed from her regular ‘mission clothes’. Just added some gloves and suspenders to give her the same look as Tifa. And yes, that is a marteria orb holding her hair together – in the FF universe it would be how she got her powers. And a lot like Tifa she wouldn’t have a weapon – she’d fight with her fist

Gundam Wing Darkly

Gundam Wing Darkly: Since I did Darkly’s cover last I thought I’d get to him first in this round. Next on Anime inspired drawing styles is one of my favorites from the way back year of 2000 when Gundam Wing first came to Toonami. I used to draw the guys all the time back then. Now, well… not so much. Oddly enough I had to look at a bunch of references to get the coloring right. Anime is shaded so so so different from what I do. And Gundam Wing had a very specific look to it. Now that I’m not 15 anymore I realize how crazy it looks. Back then that 90’s anime style was so hot – compared to the style now it just looks sloppy. Except for the actual Gundams – those are still clean as hell.

Anyway, Darkly in the GW world would be somewhat the same although instead of being 21 he’d be like 15 years old, piloting a giant war machine and traveling to space like it was nothing.

Sailor Sonya

Sailor Sonya: She is without a doubt my most girly character so it seemed only right to make her a magical girl. Unfortunately Sailor Scouts aren’t as thick as Sonya so I had to take a little artistic liberty as to what she would look like in the sailor moon anime style. And her mission clothes are so dark compared to the over saturated coloring style from the show.

Once again the shading style was the most difficult to do. I understand the simplicity of it is so animating it is easier. I love Sonya as a Pretty Soldier – this might become her new mission outfit 🙂

I don’t draw Darkly nearly as much as I should. This is his first cover in a good two years, maybe more. Darkly is just so cool. Everyone thinks the smart character has to be shy, meek, or stuck up. Not my Darkly. How did you think he landed a hottie like Sonya – little Dark has serious game on and offline
