Saturday Sketch: Original Darkchylde

Closing in on the end of the Magik set, here we have Illyana Raputin the first time she manifests as the Darkchylde.  Shortly after manifesting her Soulsword, Illyana battles Belasco and morphs into her Darkchylde aspect.  This aspect of Illyana goes through several variations during the run of the character.  I'll be looking at those later on.

Countdown to SpartanCon: Saturday Sketch

Here are the last of the display pieces for SPARTANCON: two promotional designs for the Saturday Sketch.  These two made me feel happy when I finished them.  It was nice to see all the sketchcards in one place together.  As a bonus, if you look closely at the second page, you'll see a preview of the next two sketches.  Enjoy!

Countdown to SpartanCon: The Devil's Square

"Four lost souls are gathered together to find the most dangerous artifact in all creation.

Their quest will uncover a secret that will change the World.

Forgotten.  Damned.

They have nothing left to lose.

God help anyone who stands in their way."

Countdown to SPARTANCCON

This coming Saturday, May 10th, I will be showing in the Artist's Alley at SPARTANCON. The con will held in downtown Spartanburg at the Main Branch of the library.  Please check out the link for more info.  I only just found out about Spartancon this past week and I was lucky that they still had space available in their artists alley.  I've been rushing about trying to get everything together in time.

From the Archives: What the Owl Said...

I know the text piece here is a bit on the nose, but both these pieces were in my sketchbook from the same time period and I felt they needed to appear together.  At the time I was working at (then) Kinko's copies running a machine called a Docutech.  It had an image manipulation software for document clean up that I occasionally found interesting imagery with.  The word above was one such incidence.  So I enlarged it and printed out a copy.  

Featured Creature: In The Cities

"In the cities, the effects of the plague were much worse.  Within the massive populations of larger cities, the infection spread almost overnight.  The newly dead, enclosed within the complex networks of city infrastructures, were restricted to close quarters and did not disburse into smaller groups as in rural areas.
