T’Challa, ruler of Wakanda, suits up as the Black Panther. This is my latest artwork of the character, in anticipation for the Marvel movie coming next week in the states.

Inktober, Day 5 – Long

“From out of the pages of DC Comics comes the world’s newest and greatest superhero… Plastic Man!” – Opening narrator from The Plastic Man Comedy Adventure Show (1979)

Plastic Man was probably the third superhero I was introduced to after Batman and Superman. I use to catch the old animated series every Saturday morning, when I was a little kid. It even included live action segments with an actor playing the lead role. Figured I do this for today’s Inktober prompt.

Convention Appearances and Other Announcements, Fall 2017

After NerdCon and Capital City Comic Con, I am looking to do at least one more comic con appearance and more before the year ends.

  • September 30th – October 1st, you can catch me at FantastiCon at the Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run, MI.
  • Throughout October, I will be taking on the Inktober Challenge, so you will be seeing more content from me.

The Rising Star

Mantovani – Born Free

Here’s an original I made in three days for NerdCon 2017.  You may have already seen him in one of my 3D works years ago on here.  He’s been my latest Superman pastiche for some time now.

An ordinary human who after exposure to a meteorite, develops super strength, speed, and flight.  However, when the U.S. government catches up to him, he is made into their own sponsored superhero, going on missions and being admired by the public.  Though he finds this as an opportunity to make a name for himself and atone for his past, it is not an easy path, especially with the people from his personal life.

Coloring From The Past: Wonder Woman Rebirth

WonderWomanRebirthbyJTjr2017

This was an art piece I did the line art last year, but haven’t been able to color until later.  The reason behind this was because I didn’t have the coloring experience I had when I worked on both the Batman and Logan pieces.  With the recent release of Wonder Woman trailer online, I went back to my earlier work, more seasoned than before.  The coloring process took about a day in a half to complete. It involved using layers, masks, and channels. The channels were used to distinguish line art, flat colors, and levels of shading (this took the longest) for selection purposes. The layers and masking were used for the color shading & tweaking, effects, and creating ambience.  By the end, I was more satisfied with how it came out the second time.

Batman Rebirth: Snowy Knight

This is something I’ve worked on near the end of last year. I was playing around with some techniques in Photoshop (e.g. snow effect and cold atmosphere). Also doubles as a wallpaper, preferably 1366 x 720.
