Saturday Sketch: Original Dagger

Here we have Dagger casting her purifying light knives.  I drew her partner Cloak earlier in 2014. Although Cloak and Dagger first appeared in Peter Parker the Spectacular Spiderman, I first read them in there own series.  I've always loved the tragic duo.  Despite the exact origin of their powers, there is something magical in in the manifestation of their powers and the themes the two characters represent.

From the Archives: Minotaur Heads

 
Here are some quick minotaur head sketches from very long ago.  These two are the cleanest and clearest of larger set of sketches.

From the Archives: Needlet

These nasty little guys are blue with white-ish hair.  They make a horrible whining moaning noise as they waddle along.  They tend to show up in swarms and incapacitate victims with their codependent inertia.  Though generally not a lethal threat, if there are enough Needlets present it is possible to be crushed under their combined weight or even smothered by the sheer mass of the swarm.  It is best to just run if you see one.

Saturday Sketch: Silver Age White Witch

Until I began doing research for this piece, I was unaware that Mysa Nal, the White Witch from the Legion of Superheroes, had a different appearance previous to her early 80's albino look.

Saturday Sketch: Original Moon Knight

Here we have the original Moon Knight as he first appeared in Werewolf By Night.  I've always enjoyed how Moon Knight looks a bit like the iconic American ghost image.  With his covered face and mostly white costume, he has always had an otherworldly aura to me.  This version of his costume was fun to research as before I drew this piece I was mostly familiar with the version from the Bill Sienkiewicz run in the 80's.

From the Archives: Flaming Sword

This was an older digital piece that never really reached a satisfactory level of completion.  The piece began as an imagining of DC Comics' Spectre, but quickly departed from that idea once I got into the piece.

Psyche Delectus: Invisibles Day 2014

The light and warmth of summer has passed.  Chill winds blow outside.  The world is caked in ice, but a fire still burns within.  Though the dark half of the year is full upon us, there comes a day for rekindling the fire.  Each year on November 23rd I celebrate the re-ignition of failing light with a new piece of art dedicated to one of my favorite comic books series, The Invisibles.

On November 23rd, 1995 Grant Morrison involved the readers of his comic book series The Invisibles in a group act of sigil magick.  Check out the original letters page to see how the idea was initially presented.  Join me today in my annual celebration of The Invisibles Hypersigil!

Saturday Sketch: Bronze Age Man-Wolf

The Man-Wolf first appeared as a villain / supporting character in Amazing Spider-man, but went on to appear on his on in Creatures on the Loose and Marvel Premiere.  I haven't read many stories with Man-Wolf in them, but I love Marvel creatures and werewolves in general, so here we are.  I had a really difficult time bringing this piece to completion.  I'm not sure what made Man-Wolf so difficult to draw but I'm glad he's all done.
