So my co-workers and I recently decided to try to make better use of our lunchbreaks, by using that time to see if we could crank out some quick sketches. So far, I've done these two. I'm trying to get one done at least every Tuesday and Thurday, or for as long as its fun or I get too busy ;p

I recently read something I wrote to my wife in her high school yearbook, of course this was way back when she was still just a way out of my league crush. Anyhoo, I was shocked to see all my spelling errors, with words like "Coledge" and "Gradueight". Which was made all the worse considering it was my senior year. Thank god she wasn't into smart guys ;p

Don't know if you got guys like these in your neck o' the woods. But 'round here, they're all over. Rumor has it, for every new flip trick they learn, they get a dollar raise. no 401k tho ;p
This was a speed test for myself, I knocked this out in about 25 min.

So I kinda figured out early on that I really dug doing the double card sketch. I think it actually made things faster for me. Its like doing one drawing over two cards. I get to have some minor character interactions, and I can work with a more Horizontal composition. The only hook is that I wanted them to make at least a little sense when looked at individually. Odds are they will never be put together again once they get shipped out. Unless you get really really lucky.
Wolverine / Sabretooth:
I definitely wanted to do a Wolverine and Sabretooth card. Since Sabretooth is now dead, it felt fitting to pay tribute to the old rivalry I knew so well growing up. I was tempted to do a version of the scene where Wolverine takes of Sabretooth's head but I thought it you just got a single card of a decapitated Sabretooth, well, that would be kinda lame.
Also, on a side note. Marvel has recently instated an initiative stating that all Marvel Characters no longer smoke. After all -PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- Smoking is hazardous to your health and makes your breath smell like butt and chicks will never want to kiss you ( unless they smoke too - then you're golden ).
So in case any of you were wondering what that stogie was doing flying out of Wolverine's mouth.. well, he just quit. Shortly after this scene he went out and bought some nicotine patches.
Gambit and Rogue:
Man, I loved those characters growing up. I liked the fact that gambit was supposed to be a player and all slick, but he ends up getting all hung up on this chick he can't even touch. Man, thats gotta suck. And in case you were wonering what that last pic is, I really just wasn't too stoked on how the inks on her head came out. So, for kicks, I went and painted her head, just to see if I could get myself to like it more. Anyway,

Okay, as promised, here are some more of the sketch cards I did for the Marvel Masterpieces set.
I hope you dig em.
Couple of things nobody will notice, but I got a kick out of...
Cable is the man that has it at, and he's usually carrying it all with him all the time. But what does the does the discerning merc from the future really need... a spoon of course. A little Cambell's chuncky chicken noodle will make almost anybody, even cyborgs feel just a lil' better.
I can't help but think that If I had the mighty power of magnetism, I'd probly just waste it on some of your lesser known uses, like finding my keys or always having that extra paperclip handy.
Doctor Strange and Clea:
Here's what I love about Doctor Strange... If you really think about it, he's this guy whose already spent like 10+ years going thru med school, had a career as a doctor, lost it all, mastered magic, and whatever else in between. This dude had to be at least in his early sixties, at least. And Clea is like this 200 year old princess from another dimension, but she'll always look like she's 20. So basically you got this older guy who has a really young lookin chick who not only loves him, but is also his disciple. Doc Strange is the Man!

all 1 or maybe 2 of you,
I'm back from whats been a really crazy few months. Since my last post I've officially become a new dad. I gots me a brand new beautiful baby girl. She's so rad. Her name is Issabella. But I like to call her Izzy. Check out her awesome-ness at her very own blog, updated much more regularly than mine I might add.
But just for kicks, I thought I'd try to update my blog at least once a year, hopefully more. I gave CeeBee such crap about not having a blog, and now he's an updating monster.
Well, I'm workin on it I swear.
So for now here are some more sketch cards. I had much more fun on this batch, I'll have some more to post later.
