Been with my wife for nearly 25 years and married for 20 years. I have two beautiful children. And I feel OLD. LOL.

I have always been a fanboy of comics and movies, TV and of course music.

Been a Horror movie nut for all my life and grew up on the Universal Monster's Lugosi's Dracula, Karloff as Frankenstein's Monster, Chaney's Wolfman etc. Eventually I fell into the Hammer classics such as Peter Cushing as Van Helsing or Victor Frankenstein and Chris Lee as Dracula, etc. So you will see many Homages by me here.

EVERYTHING I DO IS FOR SALE!!!! If you care to inquire about a piece please message me.

I DO REQUESTS AND COMMISSIONS AS WELL ... Please message me about details. I am very easy to deal with.

Daily Sketch Challenge Red Sonja
Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword was created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith and first appeared in Conan the Barbarian #23 in 1973.  Young Sonja lived with her family in the Western Hyrcanian steppes.  A group of mercenaries killed her family, burned down her house and brutally raped the only survivor—Sonja.  Answering her cry for revenge, the red goddess Scathach instilled in her incredible skill in battle on the condition that she would never lie with any man unless he defeated her in fair combat.

Today, you are challenged to draw RED SONJA for around a half-hour!

The deadline for this challenge is Tuesday, May 14, 2019!

Daily Sketch Challenge Blueberry
Jean Giraud (Moebius) was born yesterday, way back in 1938 and so I thought it would be appropriate to pay tribute to the great French master comics artist today...

In the Franco-Belgian comics by Jean-Michel Charlier and Moebius, Michael Steven Donovan took the nickname “Blueberry” when he was framed for a murder he did not commit and left his Southern roots and fled to the American frontier out West.  Starting out as a staunch racist, Blueberry was saved by an African-American and then learned the error of his ways—becoming an enemy of discrimination of all kinds, fought against the Confederacy and tried to protect the rights of Native Americans.

Today, you are challenged to draw the Western anti-hero BLUEBERRY for about a half-hour!

The deadline for this challenge is Friday, May 10, 2019!

Daily Sketch Challenge DCeased Batman
DCeased takes place in an alternate version of the DC Universe, but one almost identical to DC's current comic book universe. Darkseid attempts to unleash the Anti-Life equation by combining Cyborg's Apokoliptian technology with the essence of the Black Racer. Cyborg is teleported back to Earth, but not before Darkseid, Desaad and Apokolips itself are destroyed by the virus. The virus begins spreading across the globe as soon as Cyborg begins interfacing with the Internet and millions of civilians are transformed into ravenous zombies.

Today you are challenged to draw ZOMBIE BATMAN for about a half hour!

The deadline for this challenge is Thursday, May 9, 2019!

Daily Sketch Challenge Chewbacca
Peter Mayhew passed away last week. He was the man who originated and starred in the role of CHEWBACCA in the STAR WARS films from the original A New Hope through The Force Awakens. 

Known to his friends as “Chewie”, Chewbacca was a legendary Wookiee from Kashyyyk and co-pilot of Han Solo’s ship, the Millennium Falcon.  Son of Attichitcuk, husband of Mallatobuck and father of Lumpawaroo, Chewbacca carried the name of the ancient Wookie hero, the great Bacca.  Chewbacca was a wise, sophisticated being of great strength and loyalty.  As technologically savvy as the brightest Academy graduate, he was also a skilled mechanic.

So, today, in honor of that gentle giant, you are challenged to draw CHEWBACCA for about 30 minutes!

The deadline for this challenge is Wed. May 8, 2019!

:icondailysketchchallenge: a great group that gets you motivated to draw daily.  I am a huge comic geek which helps but everyday they pick a topic and you can draw it.  Copy the references provided or create your own drawing.  The goal is generally a half an hour to loosen you up to get into your personal projects.  I sketch fast so the half hour is generally close for me BUT Take as long as you like.  I know these aren't the best of my work, on the other hand the are fun to do.  

I always wonder why people watch me and always think it is cool that they do.  But I jump into lots of different things so I hope not to disappoint and appologize for the flooding of images when I post daily for the Daily Sketch Challenges.  Hope my doodles at the very least bring a smile to your faces

Hi, I hope you don't mind but I've had a go at copying one of your sketches, Mickey and Scooby Doo. Loved it. Gnasher. Tried to add it to this post, but couldn't figure out how to do it.

Hey I don't mind at all and glad you let me know that you at least tried to acknowledge me.  Some just copy and claim as their own.  You did a great a job of it!  Just copy and paste the thumbnail in the bottom left of the page.

Really cool comment!  Thanks so much.  If  you are into it check out the Daily Sketch Challenge group.  I try to keep on as I see huge improvements in my sketching.  30 min. fun time limit but take as long or as little as you like.  Copy the references supplied or try your own.  The goal really is to just get you to pick up that pencil as much as possible and keep you loose and learn  not to force your sketches.
