    Hey Todd love your work question is there a way to order a sketch card of a comic character if so how much and what is the actual size, and cost and where can I order one from.
    Thank you, Tom

    Simply stopping by to say I love your work. I first came across your stuff on DeviantArt. Huge fan. Keep up the good work.

    HEY can I just say I love the way you draw Iron Man/Tony? I finally got my hands on Iron Age #3 and it’s awesome. Tony actually looks the way I always see him in my head for once (i.e., handsome and not too old, despite what Dazzler thinks :P ). Hope to see you working on some other stuff with him in the future! I love your art.

    Hi. Loving your work and excited to meet you at LBCC. Was wondering if you’d ever be interested in being a guest lecturer/artist at an art museum? I’m the director of marketing for the Bakersfield Museum of Art and would love to get your input on a couple of ideas! Thanks!!

    Hi Todd,
    Just wanted to say that I LOVE your art. I really like what you did on Dustman issue #476! Also saw a picture of a white SUV that I think you did by hand and it had a lot artwork of people from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. Keep up the great work! I’m a follower for life!

    Hey Todd, first off I’m a big fan of yours. I really enjoy your videos and the technical breakdowns…
    I want to buy a set of 72 Copic’s and I was wondering if you could make a recommendation on which color set would be the right choice for me? I mainly do comic illustration and a bit of anime stuff.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Keep the videos coming!!!

    • December 30th, 2013 at 18:03 | #18

      It’s great you’re into Copic markers. I started with some warm and cool grays. Then I slowly built my collection of colors buying single markers. I wouldn’t be able to advise which set is best to get since I’m not familiar with which sets they offer.
      But I’m sure a 72 marker set would set you up with a great foundation of colors.
      Good luck with your art!

    I just wanted to say what a talented artist and inspiration you are. My brother told me to look into your work to learn more about using Copic markers because we are planning to do a comic book and I was asked by all three of my brothers working on it to rekindle my love or comic inking and coloring. Watching you work has really given me insight into how the markers can be used to create brilliant comic book coloring. I will definitely keep watching your videos to learn more from someone as amazing as you are.

    Hey Todd huge fan of your work and love your drawings! i would be HONORED to have a colossus commission piece from you for my collection! Between you Jim Lee and Todd Mcfarline ive now reached out to all of you to try and have a commission piece done. but the way you layer with the copic markers is insane and im trying to learn how to layer like you, i watch all your YouTube videos and yes i am learning. i wish i never stopped drawing as a kid and continued with it but ive picked the pencil back up recently and have spent some money on some supplies. but to have a colossus piece done by you would be amazing! thanks Todd keep up the awesome work and keep on inspiring people….including myself! you def are an inspiration!

    Hey Todd, I’m a freshman or freshmen in high school. I would look at ypir drawings and draw them by looking at the photi and drawing at the same time. I have comment on your photos on instagram as dylan2000_4_life. I’ve reaaly wanted to meet you or talki to you once in life but not that much comic book artists have time for that lol. The reason why I really wanted to talk to ypu because I heard you were a believer in god and christ, when I heard about it in one of the interviews you had on youtube, I was excited knowing that one of my favorite artists in the world knows the truth. I’ve been having a hard time of having my own style in art. I really like to have advice from like heads and the whole torso of the body.

    • March 5th, 2015 at 18:17 | #32

      Hi, Dylan!
      Thanks for enjoying my art and videos. And, yep! I’ve been a Christian since age 12. The road hasn’t always been easy, but the Lord has been kind and gracious to me! I’m very thankful for the blessings in my life.
      As for drawing heads and torsos, that is challenging. Look into “How To Draw Comics” books and life drawing books, like Burne Hogarth’s “Dynamic Anatomy”.
      Try drawing from real life/photos whenever possible.
      And practice daily! It takes a a LOT of practice!!!

  28. Dylan Goins
    March 23rd, 2015 at 00:40 | #33

    Thank you, I may have emailed you about christianity and such. On twitter I mostly tweet to you always about simple stuff or inform you any art equipment. You probably remembered gregorygoins508@gmail emailed you about god and close friend relationship. Even though that I tweet you time to time. I feel like we have this close friendship. I hope you don’t mind about that at all. It just not common to me to talk to one of my favorite comic book artists. I just love talking to you and to others who believe. I really wanna thank you for actually replying time to time on twitter because some comic book artist don’t really. I do know that sometimes you can’t reply right away, because of all the deadlines for the Nightcrawler series and the Amazing Spiderman, Teen Titans, and Young Justice. I also have those kind of moments becuase I would draw time to time and my friends or family would want to do something else and I would try to draw the picture now so that I can get it over with and give the commision to the people at church because sometimes they would ask to draw something and I sketch it and give it to them. Sometimes, I can think of the feel of the comic book industry. Thank you Todd, for being such a good close friend on Twitter, and showing your artwork to all of us including me.

    Sincerly, Dylan Goins from Twitter! :)

    Hello Todd , I would like your advise on how I could write and draw my own comic.

    • June 24th, 2015 at 19:12 | #35

      Check out the book “How To Draw Comics the Marvel Way” (or any “how to draw Comics” book) to get the foundational knowledge.
      Then just go for it! That;s what I did as a kid. I just folded printer paper in half and started making my own comics and printing them on a copy machine.
      You can also do you comic as a web comic online or find a one-off printing company to print as many full-sized comics as you need/can afford!
      Just have fun and you can learn a lot through experimenting/trial and error!
      Good luck!

      Thanks for the interest in my commissioned art!
      My commission list is closed at this time. I have a number of commissions I’m committed to do on my current queue of requests amidst my current work deadlines.

      I can add your name and email to a list of those interested in getting a commission. When I open the list back up, I will have info on art size and prices.
      We can then discuss what you would want (pencils, pencils/inks, extra characters, detailed backgrounds, etc).
      Just shoot me an email at mail@wildguard.com

      The wait has averaged about 2-3 years. So it’s good to get on the list now! :)

    Hey Todd! I was going to go and pick up a pack of 12 cool gray copic sketch markers but then I realized that the markers wouldn’t work so well on the printer paper I use. I was wondering if you could tell me what paper you use your markers on or any suggestions of what paper I should get. Right now I am thinking strathmore multimedia.
    Alsp, I was thinking about picking up a set of watercolors. I thought it would be easy to choose which one to get but when I looked online there were so many. I plan in using the Pentel Arts Aquash Water Brushes (those are the ones you use, right) I was wondering if you cold tell me what watercolors you use, or suggest an affordable beginner water color set.
    This would help me so much.
    Sinceriously,
    Mark

    • June 24th, 2015 at 19:05 | #41

      It’s great you are drawing!
      I do Copic illustrations on Strathmore smooth Bristol board.
      For watercolors, I use Windsor Newton. I have a small travel set that works great. Got it at Arron Bothers framing and art supply stores.
      Keep on drawing!

Please respond whenever you can. Btw is there an email I can contact? So we can talk about this privately. Thanks.
