Popgun Volume 1
Description:

I am proud to announce that my first published comic book art is coming out in November in an anthology called Popgun Volume 1, published by Image Comics. My art is featured in a short story written by Michael Woods. Popgun is 400 + pages of spectacular stories written and illustrated by some of the today’s biggest names in Comics and some bright up-and-comers.

I snagged the following description from Diamond Comics Distributors site.

Image’s Popgun Aims for Diverse Visions

Image Comics loads a roster of comics’ most creative artists and writers into the Popgun Vol. 1 Original Graphic Novel (SEP07 1958, $29.99), a massive, 400-page vehicle for a wide range of entertaining stories and works.

Image anthologies like Put the Book Back on the Shelf: A Belle & Sebastian Anthology (DEC05 1753, $19.99), Four-Letter Worlds (NOV04 1533, $12.95) and many others have served as stellar showcases of its commitment to bringing readers outstanding work from established and rising creators. With a host of luminaries handling the writing and art, Popgun Vol. 1 should continue that tradition.

Included in this “ultimate graphic mixtape” are stories by Mike Allred, Chuck BB, Mike Bullock, Benito Cereno, Dave Crosland, Toby Cypress, Brandon Graham, Shepherd Hendrix, Jonathan Hickman, Eva Hopkins, Joe Keatinge, Erik Larsen, Jason Latour, Corey Lewis, Joseph Michael Linsner, Jim Mahfood, Derek McCulloch, Chris Moreno, Moritat, Khary Randolph, Rick Remender, Jamie S. Rich, Mark Sable, Tim Seeley, M. Zachary Sherman, Mark Andrew Smith, Richard Starkings, Jame Stokoe, Nick Stakal, Doug Wagner and others.

The full-color Popgun Vol. 1 OGN features a cover by Allred and is scheduled to ship on November 21.

More character design
Description:
This guy belongs with the dragon Ragdon,Ntry, and Sasson. They make up a sort of “army of darkness”.
His name is Emoth and he is a Giant almost tank like creature. Except is much larger than a tank. He is HUGE. When I was creating him I was thinking of a creature that just walks through armies smashing them with each step.
He too is part of a story that I would like to do, sometime in the future, that I haven’t told ya about as of yet.

Anyway let me know what you guys think.

Tools: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (Emoth was created in Illustrator. Added a quick bkgd in Photoshop)

Triumph Lost – progression
Description: Thought I would give you all a step-by-step for the last piece I posted Triumph Lost. Just a little insight into my process, for this piece at least. I really didn’t know what I was going to do until I did it. I think I will be doing more of these, step-by-steps in the future. So stay tuned.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks

Triumph Lost

Triumph Lost
Description:I have not been able to post nearly as often as I would like. But that is the way it goes. A lot of the stuff I have done recently I am unable to post just now. Haven’t been published, printed or announced by the client. So I am stuck in a holding pattern. What ya gonna do?

Here is a piece I did a while back, just now posting it. Not sure if I am digging the piece completely… I did have fun creating it though, so for me that’s all the matters. I am still experimenting and playing with painting techniques, it’s a blast just to get going on a piece and play till your done.

Anyway let me know what you guys think.

Joshua Janes
Description: I thought that if I have folks listed in my Links section that I might should at least introduce them. So Josh was the first one to pay me off.

Joshua Janes is a talented artist in is own mind. Well and mine too. 😉 What I love about Josh’s work is his dynamic compostions with flawless composition with incredible colors. Now Josh’s work is great in pencil form but for me his work rushes to life when color and textures are added. Take for example the piece below, the scale textures that flow with the form are simply incredible.

This is just one of my favorite pieces by Josh there are many, many, more. Check out his work at www.joshuajanes.com and yolkum.deviantart.com
Plus, you should really check out his original character Zeak Yolkum™ on www.yolkum.com

Look for more of these types of Posts, featuring other artists, in the future.
