Next Week's Subject: The Avengers (Marvel)

We were going to do Jungle Girls this week, but since the Avengers is opening on May 4th, we figured we'd celebrate with an Avengers theme.

Battlestar Galactica by Gonzales & Pekar

This is the first ever collaborative piece done by Joe and me. The commission is for Christian, who said he had this idea for a while and wanted to see what we would do with the two generations of Cylons from Battlestar Galactica. Joe and I live too far away from each other to work on a single piece, so we did roughs, and shared them. Working back and forth until we made the two pieces work together. Each Cylon is done in acrylic on 9" x 12" Boards. Thanks Christian!

Next Week's Subject: Battlestar Galactica

Now this will be something completely different. Both Joe and I have been trying to coordinate finishing up a joint commission of the old series and new series Cylons from Battlestar Galactica. We decided to do it here. Come back Wednesday to see the results.

G.I. Joe by Joe Pekar

ok, so technically the Baroness is with Cobra.

Snake-Eyes managed to sneak himself into the picture though, so it fits the theme...right?

Next Week's Subject: G.I. Joe

I've been wanting to do this one since the beginning of the blog and I guess I finally wore Gene down! He agreed to the theme, so check back on Wednesday to see if your favorite gets drawn! (of course you can probably guess which characters will be drawn, but it's fun to pretend isn't it? ;))

Geisha Girl by Gene Gonzales

I thought I would do something different for this weeks subject and just work in pencil. I don't do that enough. After I finished it I was happy with it. That is until I saw what Joe posted. :)

Geisha Girl by Joe Pekar

Decided to go back to watercolors this week, since it's been mostly copic markers for a while now.
Hope you guys like (even though she's not a red head!).

Next Week's Subject: Geisha Girls!

Always a favorite subject of mine to draw, next week we'll have Geisha girls stopping by for a visit.
So check back on Wednesday to see what we come up with. (Can I work a red head into next week's theme? we'll see...) :)

My contribution to the space girl theme this week. I've been on a retro kick lately so I call this "Space Girl, 1968"

Ink, Copics, acrylic paint on 9" x 12" Strathmore Bristol Board.

I don't think all aliens are mean and dangerous. Some just want a hug! :)
