Custom Super Hero Portrait

My latest artwork was commissioned for a graduating senior who loves Spider-man.  I had a blast drawing this.  I decided to place his school in the background.

Pet Avengers 4 page comic!

Just finished a really fun project!  The client ordered a four page comic-book of her pets as the Avengers!!! So much fun.  We bounced a few ideas around for a story but she left the majority of it up to me.

Here's the finished comic:

And here's a look at the pets that inspired it:

I had a blast with this project!  I feel like my skills are improving with each comic.  And this time I even got to add in some sound effects and cheesy dialogue :)  Best. Job. Ever.

Super Hero Family Portrait

Another successful Etsy sale!  This client was great to work with, provided lots of feedback and had a clear vision of what she wanted.  Interesting enough she ordered from me after checking out The Comics Factory. A very popular company that also creates custom superhero portraits.  One thing she noticed was that while they simply draw the client's face onto a pre-made body and background, I create everything completely custom for the client.  And my prices are much more reasonable.  Just saying ;)  She was very happy with the finished product.

The top version is the one the client preferred as it was a bit darker color wise as  she specified.  I think this one maybe looks a little more like a comic book.

The 2nd version I did used cel-shading (only two colors similar to most cartoons).  I kind of preferred it as the characters “pop” a little more.  I’m curious which most people prefer.  Please let me know. Note the difference may seem negligible to most people.

Story of Us Comic

Here's my latest offering on Etsy.  "Story of Us" 4 page comic.  It re-tells your unique love story in comic book form.  This was a blast to draw and the client surprised her husband with this for their 1-year anniversary.

My latest sale on Etsy was a first.  A request for Superhero save the dates featuring the soon to be bride and groom.  This was really fun to work on and they were happy with the results:
