Megaskank Mansion inks
Here are my inks over :iconartistmeli:'s awesome Megaskank Mansion character pencils:

Characters are owned by my pal :iconcurtsibling:, and this was fun to ink.

Elvira's House of Mystery #1 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, Elvira's House of Mystery #1
The original cover was created by Brian Bolland, copyright Marvel Comics.  

Here is the original cover:
s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/o…

An odd thing I discovered when researching this cover - the printed version is slightly different than Bolland's original - particularly, the face.  I assume that is because Bolland's original Elvira face was a little too... Killing Joke... for the editors and/or licensors? 

I found Bolland's original B&W art here:
art.cafimg.com/images/Category…

I chose to draw the published version of the face in order to stay closer to what came out in print.

Vendetta - Sentinels Book 9 illo #5
This is the fifth and final illustration for Van Plexico's Sentinels book 9 - "Vendetta". 

The wedding portrait of Esro and Mondrian!
Inside the grand hall of the Kur-Bai imperial palace on Kurizon.  Pulsar is the maid of honor and Ultraa is the best man.
Maybe Esro has some kind of sport coat on over his traditional Hawaiian shirt....?

Note on this one: this is the FINAL illustration for the nine-book Sentinels series... five illustrations per book, plus I did the last 3 covers.  48 total illos from 2007-2017!

The original cover was created by Mike Zeck and John Beatty, copyright Marvel Comics.

Vendetta - Sentinels Book 9 illo #4
This is the fourth illustration for Van Plexico's Sentinels book 9 - "Vendetta". 

The Black Terror battles Shiva in the middle of the courtyard. Hammer/sword vs trident!  Like the Executioner vs Thor.

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!
