Batman & Sunspot

Long day today folks. Just as one project was coming in late, another project came up as a priority. Ah, the life of a freelance illustrator. :) Regardless, I am still on track for the Conventionless Convention Sketches. First up is BATMAN for Adam. I had fun with this piece. Batman is a tough character for me to nail down but I think I did pretty good here. Thanks Adam!

Next up is the New Mutant, Sunspot. This was requested by Jon. Jon loves Canson pieces and wanted a Sunspot. Since a silhouette on white paper didn't seem to exciting, he thought if I put it on a sheet of color paper it would work out. Good call, so I went with a yellowish paper for the character. Thanks Jon!

That is seven down, five to go folks. :)

This is Post #1007

Very very nice pair of sketches Gene. I like the Sunspot... very visually interesting to look at!

You don't see many Sunspots! Cleaver use of the Canson color paper with the figure.

Batman looks real mad!

Thanks everyone! Getting a bit behind in responding. Things got busy when I thought they wouldn't be busy.
