Zorro!

Image
So I saw a photo in One Man's Dream at Disney recently and then it inspired me to start doodling this in Utah right after. Zorro!!

I loved him in Lost in Space too! ;)

Enjoy!



Ultraman re-do!!

Image
Not only did I finally read Ready Player One, but Danny Haas and I listened to it on the way to DragonCon!! It totally inspired me. Who's excited!!???

While working on this, I remembered my older picture of Ultraman that I wasn't really satisfied with but thought I could at least re-use the background. Lazy, I know, but I think it really works. This one came out better than I thought it would.

Enjoy!




Peter Pan!

Image
This has been in the works for a very long time. Most reference was pulled several years ago and most of the composition was done months ago as well. Being able to work on my iPhone when I was out and about is the only thing that made finishing this possible. So here it is, my favorite story as well as my favorite Disney character, Peter Pan! As always, share it if you like it.



Flash Gordon! Again!

Image
Here is the final of the revisit of Flash Gordon played by Buster Crabbe! I am really pleased with how this turned out and am now wondering if I will come back and revisit Flash again in another decade. If you have never seen these classic movie serials I highly suggest that you do. And don't just watch the edited versions, watch the whole thing. And don't binge! I hate binge watching. The cliffhanger is totally lost if you binge and the repetitive score can also get on your nerves as it wasn't meant to be watched back to back. You will find much of the influence that inspired George Lucas and his Star Wars. Ice Planets, an opening crawl (3rd serial), aerial dog fights, etc.

Enjoy!




Flash Gordon Revisited!

Image
Flash Gordon on my iPhone. Still not done with this one. In fact I may never be. I originally started on this back in 1998 and thought I was done in 2008. You can read about it here http://jonpinto.blogspot.com/2008/05/flash-gordonstart-to-finish-part-6.html?m=1. But after a conversation with Sam Witwer at a convention, I felt like I needed to revisit this again. I admit the 2008 looks too "photoshoppy" to me now so intended to just re-render the picture. But that didn't happen either as I changed the composition as well. Such is life. Maybe this is my "Groundhog Day" and I will revisit it once a decade. 









More Comic in Progress!

Here is an early costume and color test. I love the idea that I can keep changing his sparkling outfit.



This was an early color test. Characters are close but not there yet. This was also a pretty tough choice for me.
