Uncanny X-Men #235 Cover Recreation
This is something I've been wanting to try for a while - a straight recreation (as opposed to the mash-up cover recreations I've done in the past) of the cover of one of the comics that helped change me into a comic fan as a kid.

In this case, Uncanny X-Men #235
The original cover was created by Rick Leonardi and P. Craig Russell, copyright Marvel Comics.  

Here is the original cover:

Captain America #231 Cover Recreation
This is something I've been wanting to try for a while - a straight recreation (as opposed to the mash-up cover recreations I've done in the past) of the cover of one of the comics that helped change me into a comic fan as a kid.

In this case, Captain America #231
The original cover was created by Keith Pollard and Al Milgrom, copyright Marvel Comics.

Vendetta - Sentinels Book 9 illo #3
This is the third illustration for Van Plexico's Sentinels book 9 - "Vendetta". 

Wendy stands over Dr. Zero, angry!
Dr. Zero is on the ground, as if he's just been knocked down and is surprised. (She just did knock him down.)
The location is the courtyard from the two covers.

Dr. Zero is an evil scientist. He's probably in his 30s. He has spiky red hair and big goggles that he usually wears pulled up above his eyes. His top is a black hoodie and has what looks like metal circuits printed on it.
Wendy wants to kill him!

Psst!  This is my 700th deviation, if you don't count the ones I recently deleted!

Vendetta - Sentinels Book 9 illo #2
This is the second illustration for Van Plexico's Sentinels book 9 - "Vendetta". 

Pulsar and Wendy Li are both in their uniforms (Pulsar's gold one and Wendy has a silver one similar to it). They are both floating in the air, arms out, radiant, pouring out light, like two angels or goddesses. (Wendy can be a bit higher and more centered, if that helps with layout.)
Below them, we can see two Kur-Bai officers (one male and one female) dazzled by this. They are raising their arms, shading their eyes from this display. This is happening inside an underground cave with a high ceiling, so plenty of room for them to float up and do this.

Attempting to draw comix since 1984.
Interests
Between 10-15 years ago, I used to draw comic page commissions where I would offer to illustrate a page of script by the commissioner.  The idea was that this would set me apart from all of the artists doing mostly pinup work, and it also sounded like a fun project.  It *was* pretty fun for a while, although the kind of jobs that would come my way quickly transitioned (so to speak) into mostly fetish or transformation pieces. 

I was OK with this for a while, and did them for a couple of years.  I felt an ego boost from having folks enjoy my work and be willing to pay for it, but eventually wasn't real happy with the subject matter and ceased doing fetish-style work about ten years ago.

At the same time, I would post the work here on DA, and they would get a *ton* of views and faves.. which is also gratitifying.  As years went by, I found that I wasn't super proud of a lot of the work I had posted due to the subject matter, and I'd also improved as an artist/inker to the point of disliking my earlier work because it wasn't as well done.

I removed a goodly chunk of the more risque pieces from my gallery, but left a few milder ones... which still get a few favorites a month, many years later.  These faves still feed my ego, but the work is so far removed from the quality of work I do now, that even the more innocuous ones make me cringe when I see them.

Also, those faves mean people are seeing that work, enjoying it, and might even enjoy my more recent work, which is pretty mild in comparison.

Anyway, I think I've convinced myself while writing this into doing another purge of the rest of that stuff from my gallery... it's just not 'me' anymore.   Even though a few of them have tens of thousands of views. :D

I recall seeing some of your commissioned work a long time ago. I don't suppose you still take commissions?

Hi - I'm only doing the occasional cover recreation at the moment, as I am juggling a couple of book illustration assignments.  Thanks for asking!
