I started out today by drawing Storm. It's kinda late now and I'm tired, so I am not going to give a too in depth history lesson. In short, she can control the weather and she's an X Men member. She was part of the second class that was recruited to rescue the original X Men after they went missing. In all she's pretty awesome.

My girlfriend has been begging me to draw Storm so it it looks better than normal its because it was made with love (awwww). As for the other materials I really wanted to focus on using my larger sable brush (size 3). I came to realize while practicing inking that I can get a wider variety of lines by using a thicker brush. All I had to do is wipe off the excess paint and I could make a very thin lines. For a thicker lines I just added some more pressure. I also spent some time watching Paolo Rivera ink on his blog and that helped me a lot as well. I'm going to sleep now.

Scarlet Witch

I figured because I talked about the Scarlet Witch so much in my Vision drawing I might as well just draw her. I am short on time, but here are the quick facts. She is a Avenger and daughter of Magneto (yes X-Men Magneto). She uses her mutant powers to cast hex spells and other magic. Its a little confusing and based off of probability or something like that. Hopefully the movies will clear this up, because in 2015 we will see her and her brother Quicksilver in Avengers Age of Ultron. It's going to be so cool!

Anyways for this drawing I wanted to have her doing some of that hex magic stuff. I inked everything black and white then I realized it would be a shame if the Scarlet Witch didn't have any red on her. So I used my only other color of ink that I own, red. I was very happy to finally have the chance to use it! next I used a little poster paint to block in the city and its glow. Enjoy!

The Vision

This is Vision. He is an android and one of the more famous Avengers. He was originally created by the evil robot Ultron to destroy the Avengers. Long story short he turns good and falls in love with the Scarlett Witch. He can phase through things by changing his density which also allows him to fly. Also he can shoot out energy beams. We have not seen Vision in the Avengers films yet. With next film titled “Age of Ultron” and inducing the Vision’s love interest, the Scarlett Witch, I have a feeling we will be seeing him soon. It’s just a question of who will be portraying him.

For this drawing I wanted to depict the Vision phasing through something. I added the wall in later after I realized that it looked like he was splashing out of a pool. The Vision has some unique costume colors so I wanted to try and bring those out with watercolor. I had a lot of fun painting. I would have keep layering the color in but I had to stop myself. Until next time!

Weapon X

Weapon X aka Wolverine. This is what I remember him looking like in the 1990's comic books. This is how wolvie looked when I was first introduce to him. My friend would bring this action figure to preschool and play in the sand pit with it. I remember thinking he had weird hair, but awesome retractable claws. It was years later that I realized that that action figure and the guy who looked like Batman with claws were one in the same.

This drawing takes place after he escapes the military adamantium procedure (the thing where they coat his bones with unbreakable metal). His memory is wiped clean and he wanders the Canadian Rockies like a wild animal. To create this, I used my sable brush and quill pen. Enjoy!

Darth Vader

Today I drew Darth Vader. Some of the ink is faded because I inked directly on top of my pencils. I thought this would be an easy inking job, but Darth's all black. Enjoy!

Superman - Work in Progress

Lately I haven't been posting daily drawings as often as I would like. You will definitely see them soon, I promise they exist!

Its a bird, it's a plane, it's a Superman drawing! I must admit I am a fan of the blue guy. Some people might not be able to relate to him but I think he's the bee's knees. For me Superman reminds me of everything I loved in comics when I was a kid. I was not a fan of the new film sadly. I'm too tired to give a dissertation on why Superman is awesome and everything that is wrong with the new film. Maybe I will include that when I post the final.

For this drawing I wanted to focus on the technical skills as well as the fantastical elements of Metropolis. The man of tomorrow deserves a city of tomorrow. I wanted it to look like a place that you would want to explore, a place with hints of futuristic technology, a place where you could feel safe from giant sub-woofer terraforming machines of death.  I will tighten the pencil lines and ink later, so be on the look out for the final!

Tuesday Daily Drawing - Hawkeye

I have always thought that Hawkeye had one of the coolest costumes. It just seems really bizarre compared to others and I'm not sure where the design comes from. Maybe it's medieval? This is what Jeremy Renner's character looks like in the comics.

Here is your Hawkeye history lesson. Originally Hawkeye worked at a carnival to pay the bills. It is there he became an extremely skilled archer. After witnessing Iron Man save some people Hawkeye became inspired to use his skills to fight crime. His first night out he stops a burglary but the cops think that he is the thief. Soon after, he meets the Black Widow and they become criminals. Eventually they fight Iron Man and Hawkeye decides to become a hero. He is then invited to join the Avengers.


Mondays daily drawing - Galactus!

Galactus, for those unfamiliar, is a giant space man who devours planets. His sole purpose is to gain the life energy of planets so he can continue to exist. He employes the Silver Surfer to search out the juicy planets. The story goes, that he comes to eat the earth lead by his minion the Silver Surfer. After spending time with the Fantastic Four, The Surfer decides humans are cool and Galactus shouldn't eat the earth. The Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer then defeat Galactus saving earth.

For this drawing I just started drawing. I didn't think about composition or the final product. I just stuck with it. Towards the end I had a lot of fun with the piece. It is amazing how much better a little ink can make something look.
