Mano (Fatal Five) - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Mano © DC Comics

For those that are not familiar with this character, he is a member of the Fatal Five, foes of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He is so bad he once used the destructive power of his hand to destroy his home planet! Some people need to build a moon-sized Death Star and staff it with hundreds of thousands to do that. :)

Wonder Woman - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Going for a leggy 1950s style here. Looked at some Elvgren and others for inspiration. Hopefully that comes through. :)

The Original Black Cat - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Black Cat © (Not so sure!)

This was a fun one. I have seen a few Black Cat comics and there is some pretty art in them. Lee Elias was one of the best.

Taarna - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Taarna © Heavy Metal

Another first time character for me. I remember seeing the movie HEAVY METAL in the theaters when it was released so that made doing this piece extra fun. (Too bad I didn't save this piece for the next post. The post number would have coincided with the year the movie was released)

I've been a bit under the weather and it has put me a couple of piece behind where I would like to be with these pieces. I should start making up some ground as time goes on. That said, here is Supergirl! Thanks Royce!

CONVENTIONLESS CONVENTION SKETCHES (CCS)! It's just like a regular con sketch that I would do for you at a convention, except no crowds, no convention hall food, no hotel bill, and no travel. And the price is the same as a show sketch. You only have to pay extra for shipping. Still cheaper than going to a show. If you have been waiting to get a black and white, inked single character sketch from me, now is the time to get it. If not for yourself, maybe you want a gift for that special someone? Holidays are coming up and the gift of original artwork shows how much you care. :)

Here are the details...


$50.00 for a single character, inked on 11" x 17" bristol board. I will not be doing multiple characters on a single board. Shipping is $12.00. No matter how many sketches you get! Buy 1: Shipping is $15.00! Buy 20, shipping is $15.00! (Just an FYI, my normal studio price starts at $75.00 plus shipping!). This shipping cost is US only, sorry. If you are outside the US, contact me for shipping costs.

I am going to take a total of 30 commissions. Assuming I get 30 requests, of course. Any background elements will be at my discretion. I will begin working on the sketches starting October 12th and all sketches will be done by November 17th. Finished art will be mailed each Thursday. Payment is PayPal only. (No e-checks, please).

If you are interested, send me an email to gene_gonzales(at)mac(dot)com. Please use "Conventionless Convention Sketch" in the subject line and let me know what you would like. That address and subject line are very important. It helps me sort the requests from other emails. That email address is also my PayPal account, but check with me before sending money, please. I do reserve the right to turn down requests that I don't feel comfortable drawing. If you have any questions, please email me.

Please tell your friends, family, and local politicians. Tweet it on Twitter, Tumble it on Tumblr, Pin it on Pinterest, Face it on Facebook...Okay, that one didn't sound right, but you get the idea. Please get the word out any way you can. Thanks! :)

Quick Update: If you are on my list and haven't sent your payment yet, please note that the shipping cost for US is $15.00. 

Posted above are examples of sketches done at HeroesCon 2013.
(If you haven't been to this great show, make a point to do so in 2014!)
