Old New Sketch Cards

As the title states, most of these were originally drawn in 2011, and it took me until almost a week ago to finally get around to coloring (and in some cases, inking) them.  So we might as well take a looksie at them on the ol’ blogaroonie.  It never stopped me before, but be aware there be edited nekkidness at the end of this post.  So if you don’t wish to see it, stop reading this post after the sixth card.

Green Lantern Guy Gardner..

Green Lantern Guy Gardner..

First up is the Green Lantern known as Guy Gardner.  He’s kind of a douche, but I sure did color him nice.

The Punisher..

The Punisher..

Batting second is a slickly-shaded Punisher.  A little too slickly-shaded for how mediocre the sketch originally was, but that probably goes without saying.  I am who I am, after all.

Hawkman..

Hawkman..

Hawkman has never been a great or terribly interesting character, but one of the very few complaints I have about the DCAU is that they turned him into a kinda creepy weirdo stalker.

Firestorm..

Firestorm..

Batting cleanup is the surpringly well-represented in cartoon form Firestorm.  Dig that Kirby Krackle in the background.  It’s much, much easier to make with marker than pen, by the way.  My hand is grateful.

Nightwing..

Nightwing..

Screw dat red bullshizz, Nightwing wears blue.  You’d have to pay me at least double to commission any New52 character designs.  New52 is the brown streak on the freshly cleaned underwear of DC Comics.

Vampirella..

Vampirella..

Ah, I was coloring so well until I got to her face. *le sigh*

We have come to the end, so if you do not desire to see blotted out lady parts, scram now or forever hold your peas.

Rogue..

Rogue..

Yep.  There you go.  Nekkid Rogue.  Someday the unedited version will probably make it to deviantArt or something.  Or you could buy it and have the poorly drawn lady parts all to yourself.

Same goes for everything else.  As always, on art posts like this, pretty much everything is for sale or trade.  So if you see something you wanna own, hit me up and we can work something out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until our next..

In the here-and-now, drawing relaxes me and is all-around helpful to my emotional wellbeing.

But even if I’m a laughably mediocre artist (and in many aspects I am), my art makes me more whole than I’ve ever been.

I’ll Get Back to Baseball Cards Eventually…

They are really boring me right now though, Diamond Giveaway site aside.  The only cards I’ve purchased this month that I’ve really enjoyed were the blasters of Panini Americana.  Everything else I should’ve left on the shelf.  The first Americana blaster has been scanned and will be posted up in the near future, but today feels like a sketch card dump post kinda day.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy some serviceable art!

Goku!

Batwoman!

King Felix! On a decoy card.

Green Lantern John Stewart!

Vampirella!

Ricky Romero! Also on a decoy, but one with a non-slick side, so I was able to use my normal lighter pencil on it. Hopefully you can see it somewhat okay.

Dani Moonstar! (X-Men)

Supergirl!

Starfire!

Rukia! (Bleach)

Well, there ya go.  Most of it is for sale or trade.  Inquire within.  Thanks for stopping by.  Next time, a blaster’s worth Americana.

Until our next…

The League

Finished the rest of my Justice League sketch cards.  Timely too, being as I am down to $29.00 for the rest of the month (even a cheap computer isn’t cheap).  If anybody has ever considered buying any pre-made cards or commissioning a piece from me, this would be swell time to do it!  Anyway, have a looksie at my wares:

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Green Arrow, Martian Manhunter, Plastic Man, Aquaman, The Flash

Hal & Ollie came out pretty nice, especially GL.  I think I shaded the guardian of Sector 2814 with little bit better touch than Green Arrow.

Green Arrow has a tiny bit of open space I need to do something with.  The target in the background is for “social relevance” purposes, by the way. 😛

Martian Manhunter got a bit of shading, and the green I used on him seems to have lightened up a touch somehow.

I added the stretching to Plas after I already colored the head shot part.  I’m thinking I should shade him too, but I dunno.  The solid flat colors seem to work.

I was using my new brush-tipped pen on Aquaman, and with the bright colors of his hair and costume, the thicker lines give him an oddly cartoony look.  Unsure if it works, but I’m not hating it.

Also brush-tip penned The Flash, before Aquaman actually.  Looked okay I guess, but I totally messed up his skin tone.  Accidentally used the wrong marker, so I finished it off and then tried going over it several times, ever-so-slightly lightening it up, but not nearly enough.  So I shaded his costume and the background extra dark to match and hopefully make it not so horrible.

What do you think of them, this Justice League?

I’ll give you all six for $30.

From The Final Frontier to the Great Hall of the Justice League

Yes, it’s a sketch card post.  No, I’m not sorry.  Although you do have my apologies for this post going up two days later than intended.  Maybe some pretty pictures will get my mind off the nagging questions and thoughts about the state of our world after last night’s shocking revelations for awhile though.  Anyway, it may not mean much in the grand scheme of things, but here ya go.  Enjoy.

Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Batman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Plastic Man, Green Arrow; inked. Not pictured: Flash and Aquaman, because they aren't inked yet.

Supes, Wondy, J’onn, Canary, and Bats have since been colored.  Have a looksie:

The finished five (or four, Martian Manhunter might still need a little work)..

Sometimes it looks as if I have a clue what I’m doing, eh?  Next we boldly go where no one has gone before with the baldest and bestest of the Star Trek captains…

Captains Benjamin Sisko and Jean-Luc Picard

Wasn’t trying to be hyper-realistic with them, but they turned out to be pretty fair likenesses, methinks.

Now, before I go, a little something for the sports fans (so umm, basically everybody that doesn’t stumble upon my blog exclusively to see the old Jaime Hammer & Brooke Morales Benchwarmer cards).  So without further ado, from deep space to the Dawg Pound (cuz he has a little fresh trade bait I’m liking), here’s a lil something I starting whipping up for the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame‘s super collection:

Seneca Wallace sketch card WIP. Turns out I can kinda draw a little bit. 😉

Never has more effort been put into a piece of art of a perpetual backup QB.  Seriously, that helmet was complicated all get-out.  But it’s looking pretty good so far, methinks.

The only card I’m keeping is Black Canary, and Seneca is will be going Timmay, of course.  But the rest are available for sale or trade, so let me know if you see something you like.

That’s it for this post.  Holla.

Until our next…

WW: The Green Lantern of Sector 2814

Hal Jordan. Inks only, no pencils were involved in the making of this card.

Hadn't planned to color it... wasn't even originally intended to be Hal Jordan. I was just going to do a random super heroic-lookin' dude to slap on the cover of the sketch card binder. But it came out as Hal, so I decided to finish it off.

Until our next…
