Character Designs

Some design samples based around various themes with little title cards added for fun.

"Phantonauts" - Collection of nautical spirits wandering the seven seas aboard the Flying Dutchman.

"The Great Escapo" - Failing magician/escape artist with a dis-interested assistant and rabbit holding his act together.

"Junior Citizens" - see previous poster here

'Blast off into an adventure that’s out of this world! Trouble begins above the planet designated Europa Nova. Vapour miners have been mysteriously disappearing en route to planet’s surface. The Administrator has placed the satellite in lock down until a Homeland Agent can investigate.  When the agent himself goes missing, it’s up to two teenage cosmonauts to discover this sinister plot. Aided by the hyper-intelligent simian, Rutherford, and their trusted Spacebot M156 (“Murphy”), the JUNIOR CITIZENS must solve the case before time runs out!’

Story in Process (Plus a Sneak Peak!)

allnewmsmarvel:

One of our favorite things as comic book creators is the evolution of the art process. An idea becomes tangible over the span of a few months, from a germ of a story to a beautiful merging of art, colors and emotion. We brought along color artist Ian Herring to help Adrian’s line art come alive….

Ms Marvel #1 comes out today and I was brought on to take care of the colours.  Process shot of how it goes from Adrian’s inks to Adrian’s inks with COLOUR!

"Breaking in the tablet after having it for a few months but only having time to do colouring work.  I started with something simple for now and figured it’s far enough along now to post."

Junior Citizens

Personal work cobbled together from various inspirations, old Soviet space illustrations, songs, some previous illustrations (Cosmo Ape + Yes We Can).  All to potentially capture a cheesy sci-fi tale right out of a YA book or B-Movie.

Just got these sweet colors back on this Thundercats piece from my TMNT: Karai collaborator Ian Herring. He kicked all the ass on this, as usual. Can’t wait to work with Ian again on something.
Thinking of having prints of this made for NYCC…

Thanks Cory, awesome inks as always.
