Cloak and Dagger by Gene Gonzales

I remember I liked the original series, but I LOVED the art. I think that was the first time I saw Rick Leonardi's work and it really grabbed me. Great stuff

Next week's subject: Sugar Skull Girl

Don't know what or who that is? Do a Google search like I did :).
This is actually for another set of commissions, like the cylons from a little while back.
So check back on Wednesday to see what we come up with.

Spider-Man by Joe Pekar

I got a sneak peek at Gene's spidey the other day and saw he had the heroic looking version nailed down. So I figured I'd go in a different direction and do something a little silly.

Ha! Finally on time! At first glance this might look like a Canson piece, but it isn't. The paper is made by Daler-Rowney and I picked up a few sheets several months ago. The paper is listed as artists' colored craft paper. It's pretty sturdy too. This piece was done in ink, Copics, watercolor and white gouache. And it held up nicely. I will probably be doing some more with this paper.

Finally! My contribution to Mary Marvel week here on the blog.

Here is where it should have been posted with Joe's take on Mary

Next Week's Subject: Spider-Man

That's right, next week's theme is going to be a man. Spider-man to be exact. We thought it would be a nice change of pace. (Should have posted this yesterday, but I forgot :))
