I'll be at NYCC artist alley at Table I-10! Delectable* prints, scrumptious* sketchbooks, and ME in primo hungover condition! It's a veritable smorgasbord of something absurd that I suddenly can't find the words to describe properly! Hope to see you there!!

Thought I'd share an inspiring process blog post by the amazing Jaime Jones. I personally think he's on par with Craig Mullins. He's THAT good.

THIS is why I don't post hi-res versions of my artwork online. Is there any way to destroy this thieving scumbag's feedback rating? Check it out:

BTW, I'd like to thank :iconmeinfraulein: for making me aware of this and those who reported this person to eBay. You guys are awesome for having my back.

UPDATE: The listing has been removed and I credit it all to everyone here who helped me out. This is a perfect example of why the DeviantArt community is great. Thanks all!

If you were ever curious about my process for digital painting, then you should definitely get the newest issue of ImagineFX; included is a printed workshop, video tutorial, photoshop files, and the brushes I used to create this Wonder Woman cover. It's a terrific magazine and I highly recommend it to anyone with a desire to learn from established artists in the entertainment industry.

Here's the link to purchase: bit.ly/H0YXrd

It was great seeing everyone at Wonder Con! It was like a baby version of San Diego; crowded but not too crowded.

So, quick update: Due to a conflict, I will NOT be attending C2E2 this year. It's a bummer because I love Chicago. We'll try again next year.

Hey all!

I'll be attending WonderCon in Anaheim March 16-18 in artist alley. The easy way to find me is to look for the huge crowd in front of Josh Middleton's table (the guy's amazing), sidestep to the right, and there I'll be at table A-92. BTW, Josh and I both did the covers to Wonder Woman #613 and #614 so, if you have copies, you can get a one-two signature punch right there (sans actual physical punch).

I'll be selling new and older prints, my remaining sketchbooks, drawing a few sketches here and there.... You know the drill. And because I sorely I lack the moral fiber to resist giving fans what they actually want from me at conventions, licensed characters will be part of the deal. I'm crazy like that.

Here are the rest of my planned convention appearances for 2012. Details to come:

C2E2/Chicago - April 13-15
San Diego Comic Con - July 12-15
New York Comic Con - October 11 - 14

Hope to see you guys!

Hey all. Just letting you know I now have a blog and tumblr account rolling where I'll be posting more work-in-progress, process, and behind-the-scenes sort of stuff than you'd see here. Follow me! Please!

It's been brought to my attention that a sleazy website called Art4Love.com is illegally selling ridiculously expensive print(s) of my art:

goo.gl/OfxPL

And it's run by this scam-artist d-bag Chad Love Lieberman:

youtu.be/wzNy-WC1lqU

Frankly, I have no idea how he could have the high resolution files to even print this properly but he's making a go of it somehow. My advice is to check and make sure he isn't stealing your art because I've seen others on Deviant complain about the same thing. I'll be notifying my Marvel/DC editors about this as well.

Thanks to everyone who had my back on this! I appreciate it!

UPDATE: Wow, that was quick. He took it down 5 minutes after posting this entry. Either he got wind of this or my editors work FAST...

A little late here but I wanted to say thanks to all the people here that dropped by to visit me at Comic Con. It was a lot of fun to finally meet some of you guys in person.

Also, I want to commend DeviantArt for the terrific job they did in operating Artists Alley this year. All of the hard-working DeviantArt people were so nice and accommodating. Hopefully this is the beginning of a new era for Artists Alley which, in my opinion, is the real heart of Comic Con.

If you didn't make the Con and are just dying to see what I look and sound like, you can bask in the uncomfortable glow of dorky awkwardness when DeviantArt posts my video interview. Enjoy. Or cringe. I opted for the latter:

For those attending the Comic Con madness, you can find me at table CC-18 in Artist Alley where I'll be selling a limited edition "Gotham City Sirens" print that I'll be posting on Deviant soon, along with other prints of my cover work and sketchbooks from previous shows.  

Hope to see you there!

As an incredibly cheap way of GARNERing (ooh witty...) Twitter followers, I'll be posting occasional process pics of a print I'll be selling at Comic-con. After a long hiatus from doing full pencils and inks, I'm going to try to incorporate them into my digital painting; just a nice experimental change of pace from the typical grind. And if it ends up looking like shit? Plan B is good to go: Toss the f'n line-work and just digitally paint it. Easy.

When it's done, I'll post the full inks and colors here. The tweets:

Just got a couple in the mail today. I must say, it's pretty cool to see your art realized as a statue. Sculpted by Jack Mathews:

Starting next month I'm going to make some convention prints to sell so I thought I'd fish around for ideas. What characters/subject matter would you like to see me draw? Bear in mind I'm looking for something with broad appeal so Jimmy Olson and Matter-Eater Lad suggestions won't have much traction here...

Let me know what you guys think!

Before I get to the brush, I just found out out my work was accepted to the upcoming issue of Spectrum 18 magazine. It's an honor to be included along with some really talented artists I respect and admire.

So, the brush: It's a basic hard round. Hardness 100%, Spacing 20, Minimum roundness 25%, Opacity Jitter 15%. Bear in mind, this is not a special brush by any means. It's just a tool and the only thing that matters is how it's employed. So if you're going to use it exclusively, make sure that you only start with a large brush size and incrementally reduce it as you progress; you want to block in big shapes first and save all the minute detail for the end stages. It's a pretty common method and I use it all the time.

Good luck!

EDIT: I forgot to mention I also use wet edges for the brush. Not all the time, but most of the time. Sorry for the omission.

This must have taken all of 10 seconds using a horrible photoshop filter. If you're gonna try to profit off my work without my or Marvel Comics' permission, at least put in a good five minutes. Deviant ticket pending. Beat down imminent:

Mine:

Theirs:

fav.me/d3clnyp


UPDATE: Resolved. Not sure if it was Deviant or the perpetrator, but the offending deviation has been deleted. Move along. Nothing to see here.

Thanks to everyone who pointed it out to me.
