This is a project I’ve had on the back rack for years but only just got around to it recently. Many of you may recognize this character as the Mask, made famous by the Jim Carrey movie from the 90’s. However this particular drawing is inspired by the original comics published by Dark Horse which are a much darker and somewhat more tragic story. The character in those comics was referred to as Big Head, and he didn’t necessarily have only one alter ego, rather the mask itself would fall to numerous people. Mainly it would come to people who were down on their luck and had built up repressed rage at the world around them. The mask would provide them immortality and god like cartoon powers which they would then use to unleash their rage at the world around them. It was a fantastically dark and violent tale about taking a joke too far which is why it’s one of my favorite graphic novels of all time, and I also have the sequels as well.
A repost of the latest fan art of Kohaku from Dr. Stone. I did this after reviving a criticism about the size of my faces and size of heads, I really noticed it on the old art I did of this character. So I decided to do another piece of the character to make amends.
It’s been a long time since I drew Spider-Gwen and I’m looking to expand my fan work portfolio with some more Marvel work. For this piece I decided to try something a bit different. Everytime I draw Gwen I’m always faced with the difficult choice of whether to do her with the mask or without, as I really like drawing both. This time I decided to do something combining the two to look like an epic comic cover. I seriously don’t know if anyone has ever done this before… meet EDGY Spider-Gwen.
So after I drew Izzy from Total Drama several weeks ago, somebody wanted me to draw her coiled by a snake, I actually really got into this piece given that it is totally in her character to enjoy the company of snakes.
So after working on Shadow and Metal Sonic, we finally have the blue blur himself, Sonic the Hedgehog. When making this piece, there was a lot of inspiration from the character’s past. First of all, the general look of the piece was inspired by Archie Sonic issue 3 in which Sonic and Tails had “zoomed” off the comic and then back on claiming that their comic was the one to buy. Also while working on this I added a blue hue to the piece which was inspired by the classic art of the Genesis which has always tried to look “futuristic” and “advanced. And of course, the general design with shades is inspired by Steve Butler from the original Archie comics (around the early post 100th issue) as are all the Sonic drawings that I do here. Anyway, hope everyone likes it.
So I know it’s been a little quite as of late on all my social media. To vent myself a little, I’ve been busy coming to terms with this new reality we are living in with this virus going around, and I myself am quite worried not necessarily for my sake but for my loved ones and my “other job.” So I have been having trouble getting myself drawing again. Anyway, here is a little WIP update on an upcoming piece that’ll be going up soon.
