Apocalypse from X-Factor… or “Ol’ Blue Lips is Back…”

June 28th, 2011 No comments

I was a kid when Apocalypse first appeared in the pages of X-Factor.
He was such a simple bad guy back then: morphing, stretching, some experimenting, and world domination planning…
Ah, the good ol’ days….

Drawn with Copic, Pigma Micron, and Tria markers.

Secret Wars Spider-Woman

June 6th, 2011 2 comments

When I first started reading comics as a kid, I started in the middle of the Marvel SuperHeroes Secret Wars (issues #7-9).
That’s where I discovered Spider-Woman. My first thought was “Who is this lady?!? She doesn’t look like the red one from the cartoon!”
But I kept reading and didn’t let that slow me down. I’d later learn who was who and didn’t let two Spider-Women throw me.

I guess she’s called Arachne now. But to me, she’ll always be Secret Wars Spider-Woman!

Drawn with Copic, Pigma Micron, TRIA, and Sharpie markers, with WhiteOut.

Sketch Card: Psylocke

May 11th, 2011 7 comments

Okay. I’m just gonna say it. I prefer British Psylocke over Ninja Psylocke. There. I did it.

Psylocke was a part of my favorite X-Men era, the Australian Outback X-Men. I liked her new armored costume during that time. Just recently learned Art Adams designed that costume.

Now, I’m not against Ninja Psylocke. She’s great in Uncanny X-Force. I just like Betsy Braddock more before she went through the Siege Perilous and came out the other side as a ninja.

And when they brought in Revanche and had this whole “who’s really who” conundrum… Well. I’m still confused. Maybe I was over-thinking it and someone can break it down for me in a few simple sentences. Anyone?

Sketch Card: Dagger

April 30th, 2011 No comments

One thing I loved about the original Cloak and Dagger mini-series and regular series was the awesome Rick Leonardi artwork. I love the shapes and movement of his figures. They move so effortlessly and naturally on the page. He is definitely one of the earliest influences on my art.

Sketch Card: Iceman

April 28th, 2011 No comments

Iceman has to be one of my favorite X-Men. As a kid, I first discovered Iceman on the cartoon, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. Once I got into collecting comics, Iceman was a regular in the Defenders comics. But the local grocery store, where I bought my comics off of a spinner rack in the cereal aisle, rarely ordered Defenders comics. So I pretty much missed out on those stories as the series ended shortly after I began collecting comics.

But I remember the day I found X-Factor #3. There he was on the cover along with Cyclops and Angel. I didn’t know who Marvel Girl was at that time since she had already died before I started to read comics and had just recently come back to life. X-Factor was originally a series that reunited the first five X-Men as a team once again. They posed as humans for hire to hunt and eradicate the mutant menace but were actually rescuing mutants and training them to control and use their powers.

I often would buy whichever comic issue interested me at the time, but X-Factor immediately became one of the few books I began reading regularly (along with Uncanny X-Men and Peter Porker the Spectacular Spider-Ham). I became a huge fan of the book when Walt Simonson took over as regular artist. His dynamic storytelling and figure work along with his unique design style easily made him one of my earliest influences.

Sketch Card: Longshot

April 21st, 2011 No comments

I remember, back in high school, getting the first 3 issues of the Longshot mini-series from a friend. I read those over and over again blown away by the Art Adams art. But growing up in a small East Texas town, I couldn’t easily or affordably get the last 3 issues to finish the story. So I kind of just forgot about it. I was very glad Marvel put him in the X-Men Annuals, then into the Uncanny X-Men series to get a  monthly dose of a cool character.

Recently, friend and fellow comic artist, Jonboy Meyers, gave me the Longshot hardcover. I love seeing all the thumbnail, prelim, penciled pages and character designs by Art Adams, one of my earliest and biggest influences. Now I know the whole story. Thanks, Jonboy!
