Revised Batman Sketch cover

Decided to do a little more work on this sketch cover before listing it on ebay.  The Copic airbrush background looked far too pink, so I deepened it, added some other colour with a looser texture overall.

I like doing wrap-arounds on these blank covers, but dealing with the crease and staples is troublesome, so I'll go back to black and white (or primarily B&W with a touch of colour in spots).

If you're interested, the auction can be found here:

Thor - Classic Mythology II

Just got the clearance to share this.

Thor, a special promotional card for Perna Studio's Classic Mythology II limited edition sketch card series.  The announcement and final appearance of the card can be seen here:

Here's the B&W line art:
I'll have 11x17" giclee prints of the colour version available at the Fan Expo in August.

I'd really like to do at least another ten of these Norse mythology pieces and I'll likely do a larger Valkyrie as a personal piece for August as well.

Ottawa 2013

Had a blast last weekend at the Ottawa Comic Con last weekend.  Here's a few sketches from the show.  The new smart phone takes pretty good pictures. Actually started a commission just before the show ended, got home, decided I can do better and restarted it. I'll share that later on.

Did get a delayed bout of con crud/flu, though I seem to be recovering already.  Steve Niles's post-con cough turned out to be bronchitis, so send him good vibes for a speedy recovery.

Particularly enjoyed the company of Dale Keown, George Perez, Steve Niles, Ben Templesmith (who gave me a wicked Lovecraft print!), Arthur Suydam, and the great folks from Paradise Comics of Toronto (who treated me to a most excellent steak dinner Saturday night).

Would certain say yes to a return visit to this convention!

Working on a personal Conan piece when I can.  Finally happy with the main figure.

Batman Sketch Cover

So, I have a few blank cover books laying around the studio and I decided to do one as a quick warm-up.

I got a little carried away.
