Steampunk Spark - C2E2 Pre-Show Commission
This one was for my friend Jeff Moy who was actually one of the artists on the Legion Of Superheroes series. It wasn’t easy to actually do a steampunk version of a character I never knew about from before.

Steampunk Valkyrie - C2E2 2014 Pre-Show Commission
Now this was a tough one. I had to make a lot of decisions on how to do things with this character’s steampunk design. I ended up being content with the design. I do enjoy the hair very much here.

2014 Prints

Here is a new batch of prints for upcoming conventions. Choosing what to do as a print is impossible so I had a hard time but I think I came up with a decent group. People tend to like my female characters more so I thought it’d be wise to choose accordingly. Storm is there because I enjoyed how the piece turned out and because of the book I’m working on (duh). Batman is there as the male character print and because he’s Batman (duh). Blowing Off Steam and Decaying Bloom are themes from my personal works which I think makes a lot of sense to have in this collection. Two of the pieces were already coloured but I went ahead and coloured the other two just to make these prints.

All prints will be available through me at conventions I attend.

Steampunk Kitty Pryde & Lockheed - Germany Tour 2014 Pre-Show CommissionNow this one was a tough one. Mainly because most of Kitty’s costumes aren’t that distinctive except for the blue one. My favourite is when she’s wearing her yellow and black outfit. So I tried to make it work with a steampunk spin. Lockheed on the other hand was much easier. Too easy maybe with only slapping goggles on. Always fun to draw though.

Steampunk Zatanna - Germany Tour 2014 Pre-Show Commission
Didn’t I say German fans like their steampunk stuff? Despite the costume not being too original in my opinion, this one ended up being one of my favourites.

Steampunk Poison Ivy - Germany Tour 2014 Pre-Show Commission
From experience I understand that German fans like their steampunk quite a bit.

Steampunk Psylocke - NYCC 2012 Pre-Show CommissionThe scan of this piece is flawed as my scanner was dying on me at the time. I’ve had to make some fixes on it for the print I’ve made of it.
