    Checking out these threads motivates me to draw some more. I thought I would finally create my own thread. Here goes...

    This is a Batman I sketched at work one day. You can tell that it is on the back of an important document LOL!

    This is a logo I created for a hockey team I played on a few years back. If I can find a pic I will post the actual jerseys later.

    This is a simple manip I created to spice up the Windows XP Bliss desktop.
    I call it Super Bliss!

    I found a picture of my brother and I dressed as Stormtroopers from Halloween 1979. I created this little manip out of it:

    been working on hands too... a tip... always draw about 5 or 6 inches of the wrist and arm... for what ever reason it sells that hand better, and its also good practice because wrists flow into hands in many diff ways.

    Thanks Matt, I will take that advice. I see what you mean. I had lightly sketched lines for the wrist that didn't come across in the scan. I think my hand was cramping so I stopped sketching LOL.

    Here is my entry for the Steampunk contest.

    The idea was driven by the Galactus "force" in Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer.

    I figure if there was a Steampunk movie the Galactus force would be a giant Gear.

    The Gear and Planetoid sphere were created and assembled in Autodesk Inventor. The background, cracks, and smoke were added in Photoshop.

    Here is my WIP for the Green Lantern contest.
    I tried my best to channel Ryan Reynolds for this one.
    Let me know what you think!

    Well I added some more to my GL WIP.
    I am not sure where I am going to go from here because I am not very good at digital color LOL.

    I have to say, your technique with pencils is quite good, especially in the cripsness of your linework. Your colored stuff doens't carry this over, though. The outilnes are uneven and jittery.

    I think old fashioned pencil may be your best bet for now. If you want to color your stuff, trying scanning the drawing and just laying in colors on top of that. The mixture of bright, digital colors and a dark brown, soft, natural outline can make for a very interesting and eye-pleasing image.

    I've used the style before and fully intend on using it again. The results simply look good.

    Thanks! I definitely went a little crazy on the GL. I think it's because I tried to use a Ryan Reynolds Reference for the head/shoulders and then did my own thing for the rest. I also need to practice my fore-shortening.

    Jittery is a good description! I do not have a tablet. The digital colors I have done in the past have been with a mouse.

    So you are suggesting coloring on top of the pencils instead of trying to color the outlines? I have never tried that.

    I am tempted to get some color pencils and go that route. I know it doesn't always compare to the great digital colors that some of the hypesters do but I usually find it more fun.

    Thanks for the comments!
