Two For The Show...

First we have a sketch of Batman Beyond that I drew in my sketchbook last year when my oldest son, Sage, and I discovered this great annimated series togehter.

I had missed it in it's original run.
I missed out.

The need for me to finish some of the many incomplete illustrations that I have had going over the last several years, and this one in particular, is what brought John Yager and my self into our collaboration.

The second image is the inked version of this Batman Beyond by John Yager.

This is the style in which our upcomming web comic will be executed. And for those of you who read Dirk Manning's Write or Wrong column at Newsarama this week, including comments from me reguarding the importance of collaboration, here is a fine example of John taking my basic drawing, using it as a guideline, and adding so much more with his stylistic choices, that it became an illustration with a whole new life.

Third we have a reworked version of the is sketch into the black costumed Spiderman. I intend for this to be displayed on a fansite, or at in the near future.

There's A New Inker In Town!

Here is the inked version of the rocketman that I have previously posted.

Noted how John has added a striking high contrast effect to the artwork.

In the coming weeks John and I will be releasing a weekly serialized web comic.

I will handel the writing, penciling, lettering, and some of the design work.

John will be inking the pages, and handeling the bulk of the creative design work. The style that John will be using will add tremendously to the atmosphere of the story.

I hope to see you soon!
