So I just turned 30 and am still kinda… dealin’ with that. But what’s helped is some of the awesome guest art I’ve gotten lately! It’s kinda starting to accumulate, so I thought I’d go on and share it all with youze.
First up is my good buddy Anthony Gonzales. He never fails to surprise me with his creativity and ingenuity. For my compleanos, he did this awesome drawing of the hot, hung, horny, hard-bodied Anti-Heroes and somehow turned the original into a jigsaw puzzle! Let me just tell you, this was BY FAR the funnest puzzle I’ve ever done. I keep taking it apart and putting it back together again!
Here’s another Anti-Heroes piece Anth did for me. Anthony always poses my characters in such a way that is very evocative of their personalities. More so than anyone who draws these guys (including me,) Anthony really emphasizes their differences in their stances. I love it! I only have a cellphone photo of this one so far. Working on getting the original! (wink wink)
And finally, here’s one Anth did a little while back featuring the ladies of my super-mutant team, the Bomb Squad (featured in Anti-Heroes #3.) I am supposed to be digitally coloring this one… but time and laziness are getting in the way of that task. Still, the inks and line-art really hold up, as they always do with Antony’s stuff. Thanks a million, buddy!
Next up, my other good pal, Jezza does the Anti-Heroes in his own vibrant style. I love how even though Jezza’s style is on the cartoony side, he manages to cram all this subtle detail into his work. For instance, all 3 Anti-Heroes have different faces. I really appreciate the weapon design on Caleb. And is it just me, or do Jezza’s pieces always draw your eye in directly to the cocks? What is it– the placement? Whatever it is, nice job, as always bro! Jezza also recently interviewed me over at his blog so I suggest you dudes read that to find out how perv-minded I really am.
This next one is by Shawnti Therrien, an artist I met at a con a few moths ago. I was scouting artists to commission to draw the Anti-Heroes, but was embarrassed to ask any straight guys. Luckily, I spotted her booth adorned with posters of scantily clad male characters. I immediately thought, “Oh fuk yes, this person isn’t going to have a problem drawing sexiness!” Shawnti was a pleasure to meet and I love her rendition of Tai. This pencil rendering is something I really appreciate, being that I have absolutely no patience for it, myself. LOL
Last but not least is an action-packed painting of Caleb by Bordin Marsinkul. Another artist I met at the con, Bordin was actually sketching at a booth where they were selling markers. His wonderfully gritty Street Fighter pieces were up, so that’s what got me to stop but then I actually saw him work… which was incred. He needed tons of space and went at the paper like a martial artist would a punching bag. He was very animated, which seems to really show through in his work. I love the exuberance and excitement that goes into this piece.
Thanks to all these great artists for inspiring me! Now, I’m gonna go draw and subconsciously rip you all off, hahaha. j/k
