More experiments in drawing (and coloring) Black Beetle.
PULPY PICTURES. I had to get this out of my system @ericMesquivel - Blackest Terra. Trying a new inking style for kicks
Now for something completely not comic related. My Opa turns 80 in a few days, so I drew this for him. It’s from a photo, but I altered some things like took away my winter jacket and fixed my contorted backwards arm (I was hugging him like I was going to judo flip him)
herochan: C2E2 News: Grindhouse Comic Announced Dark Horse announces a new book from Eisner nominee Alex de Campi which headlines a B-movie comic masterpiece in Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight. Grindhouse delivers four two-issue gore operas, starting with the Chris Peterson-drawn “Bee Vixens from Mars,” pitting a one-eyed southern Latina deputy against lusty alien chicks bent on laying eggs in the entire male population. Future arcs include “Prison Ship Anteres,” featuring art from Simon Fraser (2000 AD); “Bride of Blood,” with art by Federica Manfredi (True Blood, Hack/Slash); and “Flesh Feast of the Devil Doll,” with art by Gary Erskine (The Mask)! “Grindhouse is the comic your mother warned you about. Seriously. You know when grownups told you comics were filthy, immoral trash? They were talking about this comic specifically,” states Alex de Campi. “Books like Grindhouse were the reason the Comics Code was invented. And if you’re in a very conservative or evangelical part of the US, you should be careful where you read it. Each story is two issues of solid gore, gratuitous nudity, and over-the-top badassery. It’s filthy. It’s violent. It’s really, really fun.” Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight #1 is on sale October 2 in comic shops everywhere. Look at me mom I’m making comics with swears and naked people and bloody guts
alexdecampi: @ArtofCoop’s cover for our super limited FCBD ashcan of Grindhouse #1. Only 100 available, only from me at @JetpackComics in sunny Rochester, NH on May 4th. See you in the Lilac City! I’ll also have free Ashes posters and stickers, and heavily discounted copies of Valentine and other books. In just over a week’s time, this bad boy goes out to a select 100 hands. You have to be at JetpackComics to get one on FCBD
alexdecampi: Following on from the Bleeding Cool interview, here is Page 6 of Bee Vixens. This is a m*f*ing BEAST of a page, thanks to Chris Peterson’s inks and Nolan Woodard’s colours. Look at those colours, people. Just look at them. Also, yes, I need to get over 5am Gender as a SFX font. But not now. Here’s more of that #makecomics thing.
This comic is finally in the bag. Sorry for the delay. Look for Ultranova (some time in the near future) from Challenger Comics and @ryanwriter. and may Argus have mercy on your soul.
Here’s another thing I’m working on. Haven’t done a lot of action, so the next pages take some work. If the page looks sort of familiar, it’s from DD #2 vol.3 . This will probably look WAY different after I ink it.
