Sketch set of SCOOBY DOO's Velma, via Procreate
From an art request on my Patreon, here's a sketch set of SCOOBY DOO’s Velma drawn with the Procreate iOS art app. For any nitpickers out there, my scribbles obvsly skew way more in the Joel Jurion “sexy Velma” direction than the canonical character designs. (In fact, two of the pics are photoreferenced from cosplayers with a similar bent.) If you’re looking for on-model Hanna Barbera riffs, my Patreon ain’t the place to find ‘em, alas. Anyhoo, this is another wee step in my journey of digital experimentation, as I’m trying to find a Procreate brush analogous to my beloved (if mislabeled) “pencil” brush from MediBang Paint.

(BTW, her "glasses" word balloon has to do with the fact that my own eyeglasses don't work well at all in concert with a magnifying glass; apparently, this is not the case for other folks, judging by comments I've received.)

For an Instagram time-lapse version of the piece (which I could not seem to post here, despite multiple tries), check here.

Once again, I'll be journeying to Heroes Con in Charlotte this weekend (I do love that show), where I'll be set up at Artist Alley table AA-1817 for all your signing, sketching, commissioning and/or original-art-buying needs! (Plus I'll have a bunch of comics on sale, including a batch of recently unearthed Dirty Pair: Sim Hell and Bubblegum Crisis: Grand Mal issues.) Drop by and say hi, won't you?

Courtesy of the fine folks at the Hero Initiative charity, I'll be flying out to attend the Phoenix Fan Fusion show this weekend. Never been to Arizona in my whole goshdarned life, so this should be a novel experience! I'll be set up at the Hero Initiative booth (#396) for all your signing and sketching needs; donations to Hero, which supports comics creators in need, would be much appreciated. If you happen to be attending, drop on by and say hi, won't you?

Header for my new(-ish) Patreon
A few years too late, finally got around to setting up a Patreon, if you wanna take a look.

The bulk of the Patreon's material (50-odd posts so far) is available at the $3 reward tier, but the "tip jar" $1 tier includes some goodies such as 600dpi raw scans of my life drawings. Originally, I was just gonna have a single $3 tier, but then thought that I should include a cheaper "tip jar" tier as well; after that, I mused, "Hey, might as well include $5 and $10 tiers in case folks are feeling extra-generous." (Eventually, a whole bunch of unpublished comics will be available at those tiers.)

From the About page, my plans for the Patreon in the months to come:

I'll be posting veritable scads and oodles of "process" material here, both for current work and from older projects. This includes material such as developmental story notes; character designs; comics roughs, layouts, and thumbnails (which, by my idiosyncratic reckoning, are all very different things); work stages on comic covers and the illustrative like; unused and/or early-draft Empowered pages; high-res scans from my life-drawing sketches; con sketches both new and old; pitches for both failed and successful projects (far more of the former than the latter, alas); fulminating, text-based rants about the nuts and bolts of comics storytelling; and even excepts from an incomplete but interesting (IMHO) Empowered prose novel.

Really wish I'd started this earlier, especially since the last year or so has not gone terribly well on the Empowered and/or overall comics career front. Still, better late than never, right...? Again, the address is:

EMPOWERED vol.11 #FaceYourArt challenge
In my take on the #FaceYourArt challenge, here's a montage consisting entirely of Emp faces from the upcoming (Sept. 18/Oct.1) Empowered vol.11. More info on ordering the book here.

As the various Emp faces might hint, vol.11 is an especially grueling ordeal for our long-suffering heroine. Here's the book's solicitation copy:

Costumed crime fighter Empowered finds herself the desperate prey of a maniacal supervillain whose godlike powers have turned an entire city of suprahumans against her. Outnumbered and under siege, aided only by a hero's ghost, can Emp survive the relentless onslaught long enough to free her enslaved teammates and loved ones?

Alas, no, as my hotel arrangement fell through. Maybe next year, though!

Is Volume 11 planned to be the last?  You talk about the webcomic catching up after 11, and I got worried.

No, I'm already a dozen or so pages into vol.12. (As seen on my Patreon, HINT HINT!)
