Mephisto Inks - Defenders 111 Reimagining by dalgoda7
Mephisto Inks - Defenders 111 Reimagining
These are my inks over :iconmorganza:'s fantastic Mephisto pencils - Mephisto Commission

I asked him if he minded if I inked his pencils, as I loved the piece.  The art is 11x17, with room for a logo treatment, so I decided to make it into a reimagining of Defenders 111 (Hellcat on the cover with the Devil).

Hope you like, Morgan!  :)
Red Sonja 1 Cover Recreation by dalgoda7
Red Sonja 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, Red Sonja #1 - her first solo title.

The original cover was created by Frank Thorne, copyright Marvel Comics.

Here is the original cover:…
Portland Underground 3 Cover by dalgoda7
Portland Underground 3 Cover
Finally!  I got around to putting together the cover for issue #3.

For this one (although you can't see it here), I'm going to print using all blue - dark blue for the foreground figures/items, and a lighter blue for the background - on light blue stock.

I did this on two pieces of bristol - one for the foreground, one for the background (for easier separation for print).  This version is a composite in grayscale.

Hopefully it will look cool.

I'm angling on a Spring release for this one - only 3 years since issue 2 was printed!  :(
Old Art - Gamma Radiated Scarlet Witch (1997) by dalgoda7
Old Art - Gamma Radiated Scarlet Witch (1997)
I dug through my art archives for some older work, while not near the quality I am capable of today, I still enjoy or has personal historical significance.

This is a drawing done for a Wizard magazine contest - the idea was to take a character and draw them as if they had been irradiated by Gamma radiation as opposed to Bruce Banner.

I've always liked the Scarlet Witch, and thought it'd make an interesting subject.

Drawn a little less sloppily with a dip nib.

Never did submit the drawing, though.  Oh well.
Old Art - Slackers promo (1996) by dalgoda7
Old Art - Slackers promo (1996)
I dug through my art archives for some older work, while not near the quality I am capable of today, I still enjoy or has personal historical significance.

This is a promo piece I did of the main characters in the planned 'Slackers' comic for Oktober Black Press. 

Inked sloppily with a dip nib, 1996.
