The first photograph of Bulletproof Beetle, as he's called from then on out, after he killed Krieger and some DAP members.

I'll be finishing the sketch soon

Sketch-A-Day 29

A sketch of the dapper gent that Danny Garrety first takes the hat and mask from at a German masquerade ball.

In order to sneak into the party, he knocks this guy out and takes a few pieces of his costume to blend in, while he searches for Krieger (a man he wishes some serious harm). The newspapers gotta shot of him with his shirt torn open by bullet holes (exposing the scarab on his chest) wearing a hat, mask, and the little cloak. With those photos taken, the name BulletproofBeetle was coined.

Danny ditched the Nancy little cloak and stuck with the hat and suit look for a short while.

Sketch-A-Day 26

Technically this isn't a sketch, it's a finished piece. Well for me, it's finished. I did it just in case we need another pinup to fix any page count issues. I applied some tones and zips to it, and will probably add some title text, so the printed version will be a bit fancier, but essentially that's it.

It's my daughter's 6th birthday today...holy shit.

Sketch-A-Day 18

Totally rough sketch for a possible commission. I suck at drawing the ladies, so hopefully I don't screw this one up.

No she won't be nekkid.

Sketch-A-Day 16

I've been talking to Riot alot over the last couple days, so I thought I'd throw Chance in the sketch mix. Chance is from his book The Path... Lovecraftian Horror meets Arthurian legend.

good biz

Sketch-A-Day 13

Adam Atoms' auto armor. He essentially clicks a little button on his belt and he's coated in this liquid metal armor. He then becomes nigh invulnerable...with Kirby style shiny parts!

Sketch-A-Day 12

Adam Atoms back in his wartime days. I know it may look very vietnam-ish, but trench warfare is trench warfare regardless of the era.

You can armed with a plasma rifle and still be knee deep in marshy swampland.

Sketch-A-Day 11

I had done a punch scene for one of my recent commissions and I'd realized that I don't do too many action-y pieces.

I thought I'd remedy that-- the ghost with the most handing out some right cross medicine. So here's the sketch stage....I'm sure I'll cheat and make the inks another "sketch-a-day" post.

Sketch-A-Day 6

This is a thing for a thing...shrouded in secrecy. Not really. Robot 13 from the mind of Daniel Bradford and Thomas Hall.

Sketch-A-Day 5

a sketch a day, any sketch will do.

This is some envelope "art" that's going out in the mail today. I, for some reason, can't manage to send something through the USPS w/o doodling on idea why.

Sketch-A-Day 4

Megabolt tearing his way out of his civilian clothes...because it's Megabolt, you could almost call it Superman fanart when it's not colored and there's no logo showing.

Sketch-A-Day 3

here's a geologist chick with her accessories drawn off to the side (as i often do) because i just fuck shit up when i try to add to a drawing. I go in there later and figure it out digitally.

cheating? you bet yer ass!

Sketch-A-Day 2

Bulletproof Beetle in some WWII stylings. but wait I thought he was a hero in the 1920's? Is this more of Matt's un-aging superhero bullshit? i think so.

Sketch-A-Day 1

is 4 days too late....but fuck it.

It's also an actual "sketch." I'm shit at vehicles and this is my attempt to rough out a drawing Jimmy (aka Starshield) on his bike.
