Bonus: Nightwing

Dick, you're gonna give yourself a really bad crick in the neck looking up in the sky like that.

What? Are you mad at the moon?!

Red robin bonus

Red Robin thinks so hard he looks sad. But he's not. He's just thinking.

Thinking hard.

About his cool hair.

The Savage Hawkman is savage.


Many iterations over the years.  Or I guess source, or origin of powers, this one seems to combine the usual suspects.  Egyptian god + Nth Metal + Wing harness + Carter Hall = Hawkman.

He can wing (pardon the pun) any kind of weapon since the Nth metal is a malleable and almost liquid metal (hence why the golden axe has texture).  It can transform into any shape he wants... he'd be a marvel in the kitchen no doubt.  But since he's a hothead superhero that likes to hit things, its usually maces, swords and axes.  You know, savagey stuff.

I hear the infamous Rob Liefeld will be handling the plotting duties for a while.

Static Shock

A teen superhero with Electricity powers.  Was part of the "Milestone" comic book line introduced in the 90's.  An admirable effort to spotlight black superheroes.  To its detriment, though I understand the desire to make it appeal to the most readers, all the characters were parallels of popular superheroes.  But I guess most new characters are anyway.  This character, as well as others from the Milestone line were folded into the New52 DC universe. But only Static shock got his own title this time around.

Sad to say, it has been canceled.  I didn't think I would run out of time to showcase drawings on all the 52 before any of the titles were canceled...

So this is a stand up ode to a fallen title.  Im sure he'll be around elsewhere in DC anyway.

Written and drawn by Scott McDaniel (LOVED his nightwing run WAAAAAAAAAAAY back).

Birds of prey

A group of DC heroines join up and fight injustice together.  There's a base team, and other female members from the universe sub in, depending on the needs of the scenario.  I've only read issue #4 and it was alot of fun.

Dug a bit deeper for this one.  Especially since women are NOT my forté.

Doing a lot of inking in the new year.  I'm finding it hard to see the need to pencil (after blue pencil construction) when you can just leap to inks... Lots of posts to come.

Deathstroke, the Terminator.  He's an age-before-beauty, one-eyed bad-ass was more typically a "bad guy" in the old DC, now he's more of a force-of-nature mercenary.

I was actually quite surprised how much I liked this title.  Maybe cause I wasn't expecting much...?

Fun title written by Kyle Higgins and drawn by Joe Bennet.

Finally started using PITT Faber-Castell ink markers.  Where have they been all my life? lol.

Captain Atom

Captain Atom, your primative intellect wouldn't understand, but he handles things like alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures.

Original Robin, Dick Grayson, after a turn at being The Batman (a second time) for a while is back as Nightwing... again.  Not confusing.  I promise.

Just a couple sketches.

I fought a pretty taxing bout of "loss of artistic confidence" (as my therapist called it) to continue drawing and do some pretty ambitious things this year.
