A possible creature to battle our hero Z-Girl, seen here in mid fight with her trusty ZOMBOT™ by her side! Wish them luck!

#25 LITTLE RED

| November 28, 2012 | 3 Comments

My take on the classic fairy tale character. Little Red is all grown up, and has become an accomplished warrior. Her skills now allow her to be a champion in the fight for those oppressed in the magic forest.

Alien? Monster creation? Mystical? No idea. I could see her battling it out in some ancient ruins with Z-Girl for sure.

#23 BLADE-ELLA

| November 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

No Idea. Just a wild fantasy looking Lord of the Rings kinda chic. Maybe she could end up in my Little Red comic. An evil queen kind of role.

#22 SECRET SIREN

| November 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

A generic female super hero character design. Kind of a mash up of Marvels Cyclops of the X-Men and Spider Woman with DC’s Batman. 😀

#21 STALKER

| November 28, 2012 | 1 Comment

Not sure where this lady came from in my head. Except Im guessing that Michonne from the Walking Dead TV show has been an inspiration. I envision this character being similar in strength and focus. Plus the dread locks too. LOL I image she is some sort of rogue special ops super soldier. Probably a Punisher kind of character. Taking down crime lords or international criminals. Maybe STALKER will be the one to locate and finally take out KOBY Ha!

ZOMBOT

| November 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

Mix A little bit of Zombie with a whole lot of Robot and what do ya get, ZOMBOT. This guy is the creation of Department Of Irregular Warfare scientists. He is the first of his kind. A synthesis of advanced military robotics, ancient spiritual mysticism and the new science of re-animated life forms, called Necro Science. ZOMBOT assists Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers on field missions adding additional fire power, equipment transportation, on site computational assistance and real time tactical evaluation through its advanced Artificial Intelligence. It is also uploaded with advanced knowledge of every known hand to hand fighting technique. ZOMBOT is a true asset in any theater of combat that Z-Girl and the Tigers might find them selves in.

High Priest of Andromeda

| November 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

Another character from a sci fi comic series I have been developing for years. Had a rough sketch of the guy and decided to bring it to finish for this. Needless to say this character design owes a lot to the Babylon 5 TV shows character Kosh. Was very into B5 back in the day. 😀

Futuristic Ninja

| November 20, 2012 | 2 Comments

A little bit of samurai, mixed with a whole lot of Appleseed exmachina, with a dash of the new Halo 4 weapon design. My guess is he is just about to light up an alien vehicle and get a killtacular. LOL

( Edit: 11/21 Went in and redrew this guys legs. Updated the image. I hated the original legs. They looked all dwarf like and out of proportion. Feeling much better about them now. Hope you guys agree. 😀 )

Guardian Of The Crystal Skull

| November 20, 2012 | 0 Comments

This bad boy hangs out in the ancient Mayan temples of Kukulkan. He sits motionless in a hidden chamber guarding the sacred crystal skull of Andromeda. He is made of stone and can not be budged, unless the crystal skull is threatened or approached. He then becomes animated, his animal skull head ignites with flame and he becomes your worst nightmare.

This guy is definitely getting brought to finish before the end of the month. I could see this guy living in the world of the character I created for last years 30 in 30 Dr Spectrum. I could see this guy in the Dr Who universe too.

Was looking to go all female iron man like but ended up more steam-punk retro like. Oh well. Not sure the name is right either. Feels too contemporary and not steam-punky. Got a suggestions post it in the comments. 🙂

#2 The Hammer!

| November 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

This year is going to be tough for me to do 30 full color pieces. I lost the whole first week of Nov due to lost power from storm Sandy. So instead what Im going to do is 30 tight pencil sketches of new characters. When i can I’ll try and bring them to finish like my Day one post. So here is day 2 The Hammer. No idea for background on this guy yet. I was very influenced by the incredibly awesome Hammer wielding heroes and villains from Stuart Immonen’s work on Marvels Fear Itself. Great stuff and very inspirational.

#1 Arachnid Queen

| November 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is a character that plays a central role in a comic book concept i came up with many years ago. I had never done a finished illustration of her all i had was some quick rough sketches. So thought this was a great place to flesh her out some.

2012 Challenger BatmanKM

| October 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

Hey everyone!!! Cant believe Nov is already here. Pumped to participate again in the 30 in 30 challenge. Props to Tyler James and Comix Tribe for putting this party together.

I might have to start a little late due to this freaking storm Sandy barreling down on us. I anticipate we will loose power soon. So If you don’t see posts from me right at the start that will be the reason why. 😀

Cant wait to see all the great characters that everyone posts this year. Good luck everyone!!

PS Been busy this past year with our book Z-Girl and the 4 Tigers. Here is the cover to issue #3 which we premiered at NYCC 2 weeks ago.
