Indigo Tribe – Indigio-1

Nearing the end is Indigo-1 of the Indigo Tribe. Their power mainly focus on the ability to make others feel compassion, including to those of the ruthless variety. Indigo-1, aka Iroque, was the first member of the tribe, who murdered the daughter of Abin Sur, former member of Green Lantern Corps. Abin discovered this energy source on the planet. He creates a power battery and a ring that acts as a parasite that makes the wearer feel compassion.  The moment Abin puts the power ring ring of her is when she began to feel remorse for all her heinous actions. The tribe started to grow from then on.  Other powers include the ability to mimic abilities from the other lantern corps, healing, teleportation, and speak a language no one can translate. So long as the power battery remains active, the tribe members remain compassionate.

Blue Lantern – Peace Walker

Up next we have Saint Walker, one of the members of the Blue Lantern Corps.  These members are powered by the emotion of hope. When paired with a lantern corps member or power ring, they are able to tap into their full powers. Generally, they can instill hope to other members as well as  charge their power ring if they wish to. However, they also have other effects based on the color.  The Green Lanterns, for instance, are able to charge their rings up to twice their maximum capacity (but not without consequences), while Yellow Lanterns’ are drained of their power.  Though the Blue Lanterns don’t play a offensive role, they are more of a defensive role by assisting others.

Yellow Lantern – Sinestro

Next up is Sinestro, a former member of the Green Lantern Corps and former mentor turned rival to Hal Jordan. When Hal saw Sinestro rule his home world like a totalitarian dictator (instilling fear rather than conquering it), this lead to a battle between the two. After it was over, the Guardians of the Universe discharged and sentenced to the antimatter universe, due to abusing his powers.  With the help of a race known as the Weaponers of Qward, he would go on to form the Sinestro Corps. Members were able to wield the power to create light constructs or any shapes and size (similar to the Green Lanterns), but with intent of dominating with fear.

Red Lantern – Atrocitus (w/ Dex-Starr)

This week, I will be doing limited coloring illustrations of all the different representatives of DC’s Lantern Corps.  Today, we start with Atrocitus (with Dex-Starr), member and founder of the Red Lantern Corp. They are powered by rage and act out violently against criminals they find throughout the universe.

I came across two different coloring styles I like while I was working. The first was based on an idea I’ve stumbled upon back when I was coloring Richter Belmont, and saw the masking channel for one of my coloring layers in Photoshop. The second is based on my recent illustrations, where there are a few more colors. I decided I’ll show both for variety sake.  I will be maintaining these consistent styles through the week.

Spider-man Steve Ditko tribute


I was going to do a different character for the last day of “Marvel Characters, Round 2,” until I heard the news of Steve Ditko’s passing. He is a name you’ll hear get brought up in comic book discussions. This is because he is an artist and co-creator, with Stan Lee, on such Marvel characters including Dr. Strange and Spider-man. Like the John Romita inspired drawing I did early this year, I based this wall-crawler off of Ditko’s style as a tribute to his passing. He will be truly missed in the comic community.

Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) Minimal Coloring


More minimal colored artwork, only this time we’re focusing on another captain. Carol Danver’s Captain Marvel is one of my favorite primary colored characters design wise. Very curious about the Captain Marvel movie coming up, along with the other characters showing up (pre-eye patch Nick Fury, Agent Coulson, Mar-Vell, etc).

Black Cover Variant, Ant-Man vs. Suicide Squad (WIP)

Marvel’s Ant-Man (center). DC’s Suicide Squad, clockwise: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, Diablo, and Katana.

With the Ant-Man and The Wasp now in theaters (at least in my area), I thought I’d spend my day off working on this piece.  This is the continuation to an older post. I’ve been wanting to do this for some time. I was originally going to make a comic strip version in the simplistic art style, but was busy with other projects. Later, I bought a couple blank variant covers, and came up with the idea of making it a parody cover for Ant-Man.  This was based on the cover to Avengers Academy #7 (2010). I might work on this more in the future. For now, personally, this looks like a good stopping point.

Penciling (so far): 5 hours, 14 minutes
