Hulk vs MODOK

This comic strip was done for the "Crank Those Panels" Contest on Comicvine.com



The contest asks artists to re-interpret a comic panel in their own style. Here is the original:

Duke of Darkness

This is a redesign I did of a Public Domain Character, The Duke of Darkness.



Here's what the original character looked like:

Captain Cold 2099

For a recent DC 2099 Contest on Comicvine.com.

Captain Flintlox

CAPTAIN FLINTLOX- Intergalactic Pirate, Scourge of the Seven Solar Systems.



Created for the Character Creation Contest at comicvine.com. We were asked to "Create a unique and original character (human, alien, creature, monster, real, unreal, etc.) based on Pirates (buccaneers, privateers, New World, Old World, Somalian, barely alive, undead, etc.)"

Super-Boy-Wonder

This is an amalgamation of Superboy and Robin I did for a recent Amalgam Contest over on comicvine.com.

The Crimson Clown

A recent Remake/Remodel over on Whitechapel asked artists to redesign the character, The Crimson Clown. Here's what I came up with:



My artwork was also featured on bleedingcool.com.
Here's the info we were given on the original character:

"The Crimson Clown is Delton Prouse, a wealthy young bachelor, able veteran of The Great War, explorer, and all around adventurer who functions as a modern Robin Hood, stealing from the unjustly rich and returning money to helpless victims or worthy organizations. He dresses in a mostly white clown suit and uses a tear gas pistol (later this became a "gas gun")."

Dire Wolf

This was a character design I did a little while ago for spiderbat87, a comicvine.com user, for his fan fiction story.



His brief was:
"My fan-fic is about a antihero, his name will ether be Dire Wolf, Grey Wolf or just The Wolf. He was lost in the wilderness of eastern Europe as a baby and was raised by a pack of Wolves. He has no superpowers but he is peak human and has animal agility and senses from being raised in the wild.
Dont make him to animalistic like say Wolverine or Sabertooth, I want him more like Catman or Black Panther who he is based on. Make his costume a dark greyish colour and also make him have claws and carrying some type of daggers."

Y is for Yellow Jacket


Blue Beetles

For this weeks jam at trdl-r3-weeklyjam on deviantart.

"This week's theme jam: Identity Crisis!
Draw two characters, who use the same costumed identity, encountering each other. They can be fighting, talking, making out, what have you. Any genre. Think Jim Rhodes vs Tony Stark in Iron Man armors, or two reincarnations of Dr. Who, Peter Parker vs. Ben Reilly, that sort of thing. Don't have to be the same PERSON, but the same identity."

Covered - Spider Man # 383

This is my first piece of artwork to be featured on the Covered blog (where artists get together to re-interpret existing comic book covers in their own style.)

This is my take on Amazing Spider Man #383



Here is what the original cover artwork looked like:


S is for Stingray

K is for Karnak



Salamander and Kid Gecko

I created these two characters for the recent Character Creation Contest on the Artist Forum at Comicvine.com
The brief was to "create a character (human, human hybrid, monster, creature, robot, whatever your like) based on reptilians (lizards, cocodriles, alligators, snakes, turtles, etc)."

I came up with SALAMANDER and his side-kick KID GECKO.



In a world where reptiles evolved along side apes, Homo Sapiens and Homo Reptilia live side by side and both species have their heroes.

SALAMANDER can create and manipulate fire. He is also impervious to the effects of fire and extreme high temperatures. His side-kick KID GECKO has the ability to adhere to virtually any surface and has enhanced agility.




Skeletor

This was done for the Artist's Showdown on the Artist Forum at Comicvine.com.
The challenge was to draw Skeletor from Masters of the Universe. We could choose any scene or scenario but we had to include his staff and sword. Here's what I came up with:

Sekhmet - Remake/Remodel

I took part in the recent Remake/Remodel thread at Whitechapel on Freakangels.com. There is some great art by some great artists there.
Here are the instructions we were given:

SEKHMET – Warrior Goddess.

Many of our first childhood exposure to ancient mythologies came via mainstream Superheroes, appropriated from the same. Thor, Hercules and others: for millions of people the Spandex Supers were a gateway-drug to forgotten cultures. I want to know what would’ve happened if Marvel or DC had picked a very different deity to crowbar into their heroic continuities. How would she look on the spinracks of today?

In Egyptian mythology, Sekhmet (also spelled Sachmet, Sakmet, Sakhet, Sekmet, Sakhmet and Sekhet; and given the Greek name, Sachmis), was originally the warrior goddess as well as goddess of healing for Upper Egypt. She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath created the desert. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare
During an annual festival held at the beginning of the year, a festival of intoxication, the Egyptians danced and played music to soothe the wildness of the goddess and drank great quantities of beer ritually to imitate the extreme drunkenness that stopped the wrath of the goddess—when she almost destroyed humankind.




Your job is to redesign, revamp, reinvent, remake and remodel this character into something that would work for the 21st Century.

This was my version of the character:
