"Wake up, Henry..."



I came across this study from a year or so ago while cleaning up my hard drives tonight. I most likely stopped out of frustration and fear as, at the time, I knew little to nothing about digital painting. However, tonight, I decided to work on it and finish it.

I'd like to do more of these now to teach myself more about digital painting. It seems more fun than frustrating now.

(12"x 9"; ink, Copic markers, watercolors and acrylics)
(The Destroyer®Marvel Comics)

An early Christmas present for my buddy Swain. He and I are big fans of the classic Marvel Comics WWII series 'The Invaders'; in which The Destroyer was a recurring character. And he has striped britches.

The most fun on this piece was nailing the Schmeisser machine gun. I got it down, I knew the rest of the piece would be smooth sailing.

Snake?.... SNAAAAAAAKE?!

(9"x12"; ink, Copic marker, watercolor and acrylic on watercolor paper) (Metal Gear Solid®Konami Corp.)

An early Christmas present for my buddy Dwight; who's a HUGE fan of the 'Metal Gear Solid' video game series.

By default, I'm not a horror type of guy. However, I absolutely love the first 'Halloween' movie by one of my all-time favorite directors, John Carpenter. For my money, it's the ONLY 'Halloween' movie. Watch it every year around this time of year and it always satisfies. I drew this for an art challenge on a message board I frequent. Just something fun and an appreciation of a movie I adore immensely. Oh, and the Michael Myers character is credited only as 'The Shape'; hence the title of this post.

The original art is available for sale here: -A
