    Just want to thank everyone who encouraged me to quit being lazy and make an art thread.

    This Joker piece was actually the first thing I drew with my Wacom pen back when I first bought it in 2008. I won't post that original version because I think it's crap but it is over in my deviantART gallery for those interested. Years later I would come back to it taking the constructive criticism I'd received and redraw it, cleaning up the line work and muting the colors a bit. I'm pretty happy with the end result and I think it's one of the creepiest things I've ever drawn. Hope you enjoy it.

    and here's the cleaned up line work before I recolored it.

    This William Hartnell portrait was one of the first traditional pieces I had done in a long while and was drawn looking at a still frame of the actor. Initially I was worried it didn't look enough like him but it has since grown on me.

    This watercolor on canvas was painted looking at a still frame from the movie Sleepy Hollow.

    My most recent traditional piece is this portrait of the lovely Betty Grable drawn from a photo reference.

    and here's a work in progress photo. I ended up redrawing it twice as large on a better piece of paper.

    Originally I had drawn this Betty Boop dressed as Wonder Woman with a Pigma Micron pen and Prismacolor markers on marker paper. When I scanned it I didn't like how the pen had bled a little bit so I digitally inked it in Photoshop and used the clone tool to even out the markers. I generally don't draw cute but am really happy with how this turned out.

    Another older piece Gillian Anderson and the Creature from the Black Lagoon were drawn with colored pencil and ebony pencil respectively. The reference used was a photo shoot from Rolling Stones Magazine. In hindsight I wish I had been able to include more of the Creature.

    I originally sketched this Spider-Doppelganger with a ball point pen on paper, scanned it and then digitally inked and colored it in Photoshop. The pose is loosely inspired on The Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci.

    Here's the line art before I colored it in Photoshop.

    I drew this Beavis and Butt-head with pencils and then inked it with a technical pen using stippling and erased the original pencils.

    This is a reproduction of the cover artwork on the Atari video game cartridge Q*bert. Originally this was a old pencil sketch which I inked with Pigma Micron pens. I ended up digitally reinking it and coloring it in Photoshop. It was a lot of fun to work on.

    This is another reproduction of the artwork for the PlayStation video game Brave Fencer Musashi. Drawn with pencils and then inked with a technical pen with the original pencils erased.

    Originally I sketched this May Parker Spider-Girl & Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man piece in BIC pen. After scanning it I then digitally inked and colored it in Photoshop. These are two of my favorite Spider-Man costumes and I really enjoyed drawing them. In hindsight I really should add a cityscape background to add more of a web-slinging feel to it.

    This Simpsons family portrait was drawn with pencils, inked with a technical pen and the original pencils erased.

    I was able to scan my original pencil sketch, print it and then add a little more detail to it.

    Since I currently don't have access to a computer with Photoshop or a scanner I will continue to post older pieces until I get a chance to do some new stuff. Originally this Steelheart from the cartoon series SilverHawks was a pencil sketch drawn way back in 1997. A few years ago I found it, then inked and colored it digitally in Photoshop. There are a few other versions in my gallery for those interested.

    This Carnage & Spider-Man piece is a very old illustration that was originally sketched in pencil, inked with a technical pen and then colored with Prismacolor markers & colored pencils. Years later I would recolor it in Photoshop as well as add another character from a different piece. All three poses were drawn from looking at a pages in Amazing Spider-Man #379 and Venom Sinner Takes All #3 respectively.

    Here's the originals as I mentioned they were two separate pieces.

    This is another reproduction of a much older piece originally sketched with pencil. Within the last few years I inked and colored it digitally in Photoshop. There is variant version in my gallery for those interested. The reference used was a Lady Death 1995 Trading Card.

    This Cheetara pose was originally sketched in ballpoint pen, then digitally inked and colored in Photoshop. I decided to draw the classic version as well as the newer Thundercats cartoon design. I'm not entirely happy with this running pose and plan to do another version.

    This is another older piece as well as another reproduction. It was originally sketched in pencils and then inked with a technical pen. The reference used was a panel in Spawn #31.
