From the Archives: Paperclip Bird

Here's an older sketch of a creepy bird thing.  I've always found it especially disturbing when inanimate objects start moving around of their own volition.

Saturday Sketch: Classic Nabu

Here we have the ancient Egyptian Lord of Order, Nabu the Wise, as he appeared in Doctor Fate's Origin in More Fun Comics #67.  I've always been fascinated by the symbiotic relationship between Nabu and Kent Nelson as the Doctor.

From the Archives: Naga

I've always been disturbed by snake creatures with humanoid heads.  I think at the time I drew this that I may have had something more complex in mind, but it never went any further than this.

Saturday Sketch: Norn Giant

Here we have a Norn Giant from one of Doctor Fate's early adventures.  These guys are several stories tall.  I made him appear more angry than the giants appear in the original strip.  I also neutralized the colors just a tad to make them more palatable.

Exhumed: The Door


This piece was originally part of the Interior Life set.  With the Interior Life set I tried to find a middle ground between my more emotive works and my sequential art.  That set held some of the ideas and thought processes that would grow into much of my intent here at Zombie Bites.  I had imagined this hungry door as fiery from the moment I drew it.  With the color reinvestigation I wanted to bring that feeling of furnace / fireplace to the fore.

From the Archives: Nosferatu

Drawn around the same time as last week's gargoyle, here we have a graphite sketch of an elder Nosferatu.
