Ant Man Sketch

Today I really wanted to draw Ant Man. Why, I dunno. I've always thought that he was a really interesting character, one of my favorites in fact. I think he's a gold mine waiting to be explored. Shrinking to the size of bugs and then becoming a giant! He's the most awesome superhero ever in my book. Oh yeah, there is this thing where he hits his wife the wasp....not cool.

I went all out with this one. I went ahead and used the crow quill pen and a brush, although I fear both. I like Hank Pym's original costume, but I also like how they took out the blue coloring in the Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon, so I modeled mine after that. Anyways enjoy!

Iron Man

Iron Man is a pretty fun character to draw. It's kind of mesmerizing to draw all the little geometric shapes. I think it's interesting to see how the movies have influenced the characters design in the comic books. I remember reading armor wars a few years back and being pretty surprised at how dull Tony Stark's personality was.

Today I started off with a pencil drawing then spent about an hour inking. I am happy with how it turned out for the most part. What do you think?

Captain America Sketch

This is my Captain America sketch. I wanted to draw a modern suit mixed in with a little WW2 looking stuff. Obviously I was heavily inspired by the films.

I'm not sure if I am happy with the inking of this sketch. The original drawing looks pretty cool. I had trouble trying to find out what to darken in because his costume is so colorful.

Boba Fett

Here is my newest drawing. I've always thought that Boba Fett is by far the coolest Star Wars character. He is a walking Swiss army knife mixed with a spaghetti western anti hero. There is also mysteriousness around him that makes him into an even more drawing of a character. (See what I did there?)

This is the first inking job that I've done in a while and I think I'm still trying to find my way around. I used a crow quill pen and some micron pencils to do the inking. Next time I think I will just stick to the micron pens and maybe a sharpie.

Wolverine in Japan

This is a drawing I made for an online T-shirt contest. My goal was to reenact my favorite Wolverine centered storyline by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. I did not win the contest but I am glad that I got the chance to draw this image.

First Post!

Hello Blogosphere,
My name is Phil Lambert and this is my very first blog! I am a aspiring comic book artist for Texas and I am here to blog about comics. More specifically I am here to show my comic book pages and character sketches on a frequent basis. Hopefully as time goes on you will be able to see a progression in the work. Right now my Photoshop computer is out of service, so I will be loading old work, but keep an eye out for new work!
