SPRINGCON 2012 is here! May 19th and 20th.

If you happen to be in the Minneapolis area and would like to attend this great comic con, featuring over 200 artists and lots of vendors, then drop on by the State Fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday!  I will be attending and will have prints for sale, original art from the Star Trek/ Legion of Superheroes Crossover, my run of sketchbooks, and will be doing commission as well.  Just click on the link in the convention box to the right for more information.

Pixel Art

Here are three characters I concepted for a pixel art test.  Each character was to fit in a  20 by 20 pixel box.  You might have to really blow them up to see what detail is there.  Pretty fun as I've never done it before.  So if you need pixel art and like what you see, feel free to get in touch.

I worked on them at a 1:1 ratio.

Star Trek/ Legion of Superheroes #6 Pencil Highlights

Suped up agony booths!  Heroes tortured!  Oh my...

Brainy channeling McCoy.  Me channeling De lancie

Nice caveman shot.

The Amalgam Fatal Five return.

Nice group shot.

and we're back to normal timelines.  Snuck Q into panel 2.  Seemed appropriate.

Not sure if it's canon, but Trelane was from the Q Continuum as revealed in the novel "Q Squared", I believe.  So that's why Q has a Trelane type get up.

Not sure when it takes place but wanted to sneak in as much reference from "Requiem for Methusela".  The robot, and whatever might be on the table, under the sheet.

And a nice shot exploring the wonders of the universe!

Star Trek/ Legion of Superheroes #5 Pencil Highlights

It was nice shifting between the two timelines and drawing posh places and then places like their cell.

New character designs based off the alternate universe uniforms and their originals respectively.

Flint Flashback.  Montages are fun.

...and for Vandal Savage.

Joke Chris Roberson put in, but the Cham tongue was me.  Only place it felt appropriate to this point.

The host joins us.  Wanted to see some familiar faces for the girls in front.  The one on the right is suppose to be Shanah from "The Gamesters of Triskelion"

Another visual joke put in for Brain and Spock "thinking".

Forgot to tell the colorist that's Kono in panel 1, so she just looks like a human and Kirk looks to chasing tail.

Original captured time machine room.  Different from what's in the book.

Here are the 40 sketchcards I am donating to the Free Comic Book Day event Saturday, May 5th, 2012, where I and many talented artists will be attending in Madison, WI.  I will be at Westfield's west side location from 10am to 6 pm.  You donate money for the Hero Initiative Fund and you pick a card from the collected cards at random.  And this year, I will be doing additional custom cards for a $5 donation to the fund.  So please come out and join us or go out to your local comic book shop, bring your younglings and get take part in the festivities!
