I did that Elektra piece in a bit of enthusiastic haste with the new season of the Daredevil, which is pretty great if you haven’t seen it. I like the drawing fine, but I wanted to do something with a bit more teeth. I started with a quick tiny thumbnail sketch, scanned it and drew it up in Photoshop, printed it and lightboxed it on to some Bristol board. Rescanned the full sized 11×17 and colored it in Photoshop using brushes I copped from a Ryan Lang post a while back. BTW Follow him on everything if you like production art. Anyway, here are some of the process images…
… and here’s the finish.
I’ll have this available when I get an online store up and running. Oh! I’ll have an online store up and running at some point when I revamp this site.
Hope you like and enjoy your week!
Season 2 of Daredevil dropped today and I have yet to watch, but here’s a little Elektra piece to tide me over.
Last year I whipped up a Spider-Man/Spider-Gwen winter piece
and the last super-heroic post was incredibly fun to do. So I figured with a blizzard bearing down on the East Coast and Spidey on the brain I should do another similar piece. If you haven’t already, go check out Spider-Gwen, by Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi. Also keep an eye out for the upcoming Spider-Man featuring Miles Morales as the main arachnid fella by Bendis and Sara Pichelli.
In the meantime here’s my thing …
and here’s the process. Hope you like!

Did a little sketch of Spidey punching the Hulk. Just a warm up doodle and I liked it enough to add a couple of panels at the bottom to drive home the dopiness of a young Peter Parker. I light boxed it on to some bristol and inked it with pentel brush pens and copic multiliners. Then I colored it on Photoshop. It’s candy neon goofiness and I approached it like a coloring book, but I like the look of it. I hope you do, too!
