Once again, Halloween season is here, and another year of Stocktober greatness over at Stockpilecomics.tumblr.com. For the past 4 years we have posted our horror favorites. Every year I think about doing the Universal Studios monsters, and finally this is the year! So I plan to pull famous scenes from the films themselves and to put the black bars at top and bottom of them to make them feel cinematic.
I start with the iconic Wolfman. The thing I love most about this version of him is that he is literally a wolf-man. Sometimes werewolf movies make them as actual wolves. This has charm to it! So stay tuned as I post the rest of my Universal Monsters!
Done on a 3.5 x 2.5″ sketch card with ink and marker.
I am in total Metal Gear Solid mode as I have been playing Phantom Pain lately. Here is a Big Boss. I added some halftone sticker to it to try it out. Fun stuff.
The badass Bucky Barnes re-imagined as The WInter Soldier. Did this for PUmmel, thanks to K. Rian Miller II for use of his Hot Toy for reference.
since I don’t have much new art to share this week I thought I would share my wall of original art in my studio room. I am very much in awe of the greatness that radiates off the wall into my face as I sit and draw at my desk. From top left to right. “Batman by Sean Murphy” “Return to Rander sketch cover by my buddies Rian Miller, Jesse Munoz, joe Daxberger and Joel Lolar” “They Live by Kyle Starks” “Cable by Andrew Maclean” “Moon Knight #5 page by Declan Shalvey” “Hellboy head sketch by Mike Mignola” “Blankets sketch by Craig Robinson” “Total Recall by K. Rian Miller ll” “Cable by Nate Bellagarde” “Gard Boiled by Geof Darrow” “Lono by Dave Johnson”
Making progress on Return to Rander The Blood Isle. Here is a penciled panel with our lone savior with a new kind of robe / poncho.
At Boston Comic Con, New England Comics gave me a handful of sketch covers to keep. Over the weekend I did around 15 covers, I forgot to take pictures of most of them, but here are a few that I did.
