Happy Halloween

On behalf of myself and Paul Leclerc, we wanted to wish you all a Happy Halloween. And, what better way to celebrate than with a Selina/Kal wallpaper?

Paul did all of the linework and I colored it in photoshop. In his original he had Selina in the classic Robin suit, which I altered later to make it the Tim Drake suit. That's the only thing I changed on the linework. As far as coloring, I used Tim's colors for the suit, and I almost left Kal without green hair and a white face; then I thought that if he's gonna dress up he may as well go all out.

Selina's candy wrapper was a last minute addition, but I love it!

You can find all the different sizes here.

Hi Guys,
I thought I would take a page from Manny's post and show the progression to the finished. Like Manny I usually start with a sketch. This gives me a chance to look through all the angles of light that I will be needing in the finished rendering. After that I begin my digital painting in Photoshop. From here, I try not to use any hard lines, trying to keep the illustration as soft yet structured. What we're left with is the finished product.

I usually try two variations to see which one has the most impact and discuss it with Kat (the almighty yet extremely cool director) and which ever direction she likes. We go from there. Hope you enjoy it!

Supergirl 29-Better late than never!

Hi Guys,

I'll be putting up similar posts for each cover as they are released.
This basically takes you thought my process a little.

I usually start with a really loose sketch in blue to sort of block in my shapes and staging. From there I love onto a slightly tighter sketch in a dark red to get in all the details.

My last step is bumping up the DIP and doing a final inking pass with darker versions of the objects they surround.

Let me know what you think in the comments section.

Final LSOK Commentary

It looks like we're about to get commentary crazy up in here.

Here is my final commentary for Superman. I've enjoyed working for nearly two years on the show, and look forward to working with Brian and Dale over on Defiant.

'Til next time.
