So what am I up to now?

Now that I've finished that Shade drawing I was working on so fervently, I'm heading off to do something else next. First I'd like to show off an updated image of the Joker I'm working on. Folks might recognize the gun if they've read The Killing Joke.

I'm still tinkering with it and might add more types of explosives in his coat. I'll fix the hand as well. Speaking of fixed, I've also redone his smile all the way. Picked up the teeth a bit higher, re-did the edges of his mouth, fixed up all that and now it's all proper.

Next I have a preview privy to people who peruse my posted personal points-of-view. The next Shadow comic lines.

I'll have to update the older comic to reflect Shades current hair. She doesn't get those spikes until she works up her hair anyway so I decided to do a better job showing that. I'm also working with heavier inks this time around as well, so let me know what you guys think.

Keeping the WIPS rolling

Hello again everyone. Decided it's time for a new post over on the ol' bloggers.

I'm still working on the Shade drawing and this is how much it's progressed. Not much, I know, and I should've been done with it a long time ago but backgrounds are just messing with me! I'd say I'm still only about 75% done with this one. I WILL finish this, I swear it.

Now this is sort of my version of the joker. After playing the amazing Batman: Arkham Asylum,I wanted to draw the joker the way I figured he would be. I was also watching The Dark Knight at the same time I was drawing this as well so Jokers all around. The way I heard the story, his mouth was cut into a smile. So I wanted to keep that idea but also have the cut itself not healed at the ends. So it gives him a much wider smile than normal. I might still change this up, maybe shortening his face a little and such, but this is going the way I wanted it to. Probably not the exact image I have of him but I'm working there.
