Discovery Enterprise!

Image
Captain Pike, Spock and Number One! The crew of the Enterprise as seen on Star Trek Discovery! As polarizing as the show is, the second season with Captain Pike was awesome and now people are clamoring for his own show. I admit that I am one of them! I have always loved Captain Pike and dreamed of what his adventures may have been besides the one glimpse we were given. Maybe the time is now and my patience will be paid off!! We will see. 




The Citrus Tower!

Where I live in Central Florida is also home to an old landmark. Older than Disney it was the stopping point for tourists when we were mostly orange groves. Now it is under new management and having massive renovations and restorations. As I am typing this, there is an art contest being held there and this was my entry. If you happen to be local or passing thru, please stop and vote!!




Bettie Page!

When I was working on my latest Rocketeer picture and decided to do the comic book versions of the characters, it meant that I would have to use Bettie Page. Not a bad thing really. While I was finishing up her part, I realized that she could work just fine as a singular picture as well. I wish I had taken more time to make more of an original pose. Maybe next time.




Pie Eyed Rocketeer!

Pie-Eyed Rocketeer! Full disclaimer, I did NOT come up with this. When I was browsing the web for reference, I stumbled across a cute, but rough drawing of this and thought it would be fun to clean it up but I neglected to get the artists name. If anyone knows, please let me know to give proper credit.




The Rocketeer!

The Rocketeer!! Obviously one of my faves!! I went for a retro poster look with this one and instead of using the actors of the film version, used the same inspirations that Dave Stevens used with himself as Cliff Secord. Very pleased how this came out. Share it if you like it.
Enjoy!



A Few Wondermans!

Had several more pics of my version of Wonderman I thought I would share. The "toon" version seems to really be my favorite and I even used this drawing as a test when I was teaching myself AfterEffects fairly recently.





The Marvel Captain Marvel

I don't read as many comics as I used to. Not just due to economics but that I don't enjoy many comics anymore. I guess the comics of my youth are my comics forever. I do remember Carol Danvers from when I was a kid only she was called Ms. Marvel back in the day. Saw her change costumes a few times and remember when she lost her powers as well. Not much after that. I was actually quite surprised that she is Captain Marvel now. I went to the new MCU movie recently with my family to watch this interpretation of the character and thought that the movie was...........ok. It wasn't great by any means and some of that is from knowing that most of the characters are not in any mortal danger. Since it takes place in the past and we know that they are still around in the present, that they survive. Some of the Star Wars prequels suffered this as well. I think it puts a much heavier burden on the storytelling to compensate for that. My wife loved the movie by the way.

So I didn'…
