Thor is Pretty Metal

This one was a fun one. It's actually a collaboration between Andy B (as in Andy Belanger of Kill Shakespeare comic fame). We've wanted to work on a jam piece for a while now, and Thor was a good pick as subject. Andy knocked out an incredibly detailed and kick-ass drawing (see below) which, since this was to be a colaboration, he graciously let me do whatever I wanted to. I changed up the background and lighting and re-cropped for effect before painting. The final art was painted in gouache and ink and it's another piece I'll be taking with me to Fan Expo.

I want to thank Andy B for doing such a bang up job on the drawing, and for being such a fun guy to work with. I should also add that to get in the mood of working with Andy, I listened to a lot of metal while painting this one.

Daredevil: The Man Without Fear

This one was a fun painting I did recently. It's one of a batch of new paintings I'm working on to take to Fan Expo, the big comic con coming up in August here in Toronto. I've always been a fan of Daredevil, especially during the classic Miller/Janson and Miller/Mazzucchelli run of comics, so I've posted drawings of him a few times other times before. This one was painted in gouache and ink, and is about 12" x 19" in size.

For those interested, you can check out the pencil sketch of the piece below.
