I hope it makes the look just a little more interesting while still clearly envoking feelings of the classic Blue Beetle and the Phantom.

I screwed up the Inspectre's pipe again....it's supposed to droop down a bit and I keep drawing it straight. As you can see he's found some evidence and he'll be doing on inspectreeng, inspectrung, inspectoring...he'll figure it out.

Here's a look at the monster from the forthcoming story by Scotty and I. I've begun referring to him as KRAGG, in true old school Marvel fashion.
I like this drawing because it's incorporating all the aspects I picked up from doing the monster in different artist's style, but hopefully let my own shine through. I was focusing on keeping the tree-trunk arms and fluid tendrills. I forgot the four eyes thing and I don't like the open hand all that much.
I included the raw scan on the inks w/o any of the much needed clean-up and the prelim pencils.

So, for the first time in a long time I managed to get some attitude into a drawing, and just my luck it's on a guy with no face. Here's the rawscan of my ghost w/ the most.
I'm gonna adjust the hat brim a bit digitally, it's a little too wide and droopy and I've noticed my unwillingness to draw fingers is returning...I expect that to be a trend that'll ramp up again in the coming posts. I mean really, in todays fast-paced world, who really has time for digits

Here's the BulletproofBug in his more heroic duds. I washed out a whole lotta the blue so that I was left with a very steely grey instead. The enchanted scarab is black (obsidian) so there's no real reason to tie the character to the color blue anymore.
This look s definitely up for debate still. I still wanna stick with the classic look and not get too many "Hey, Cool grey Phantom in short sleeves, dickhead." comments...we'll see.

So this is one that I'm really quite proud of...a rarity, so that's nice.
That forward most tentacle still bugs me because it's not fluid like the rest (I may change it). I think I finally nailed some of the Kirby-monster stubbiness that I was going for in earlier prelim stuff.
I might have done a wee bit of borrowing from Khary Randolph...or rather totally swiped the pose from him.
