The Red Bee

I did this one up for the latest REMAKE/REMODEL thread over at Whitechapel. I had a different idea at first of a guy petting a bee, but as soon as this one popped in my head, I knew it had to be done. The sheer absurdity of a person punching another person with bees... how could I not attempt drawing it?

The tagline I came up for it was the icing on the cake...

Aztec demigod and professional Mexican luchadore. How can you go wrong with that? This was another Project CBRunway design, where I got to team up with another competitor (the talented DSquared) to create a duo. He came up with the idea and I fell in love with it immediately, much to his surprise. We made Tez a tag team partner to his brother Quetzalcoatl, whom DSquared designed. I'd love to do more with this character.

This was a fun character design for CBR Runway... first challenge in season five I believe, where we had to create a sidekick to any Avenger. I had an idea for a German character named Wunderkind that I felt would work well for a Wonder Man sidekick. It's a little known fact that the Germans love Wonder Man almost as much as they love David Hasselhoff. Some felt the rounded "w" was kinda upsidedown McDonald-ish, but I went with it because I felt the lowercase styling worked well in conjunction for a sidekick of a major player with an uppercase "W". I was happy with how it turned out in the end, and wound up winning the round with this one.

This would be my first-ever published pin-up for the series Novo for my buddy Michael Bracco, creator of this series and Adam Wreck for AlternaComics. We had a lot of fun facing off against each other on Project CBRunway in the Comic Book Resources forums, and it was a honor to be asked to contribute this for Book 3 (The final volume, Book 5, will be coming out in September... go check the series out!)

Zero, the Ghost Hunter

Another REMAKE/REMODEL design. I picked up my love for ghost dogs in this one, done way before the Misty cover design. The ghost splatter effect on the ground was kinda fun too.

The Light Fantastic

Time to pull up a design from my Project CBRunway days. Up first.... The Light Fantastic. For this challenge, we were required to design a fifth member to the Fantastic Four. I went a little cosmic with my design, and followed the concept of the four elements associated with the founding FF members by basing this design off of the "fifth element"... aether It was a fun challenge, and one of the few that I did manage to win.

Never managed to finish my last attempt at Supergirl for the REMAKE/REMODEL challenge, and was sad to run out of time on that one.

Another REMAKE/REMODEL submission for a cover to a British girl anthology title called Misty. It had some strange ideas for its serialized stories, and I liked the idea for the one that involved a ghost dog so I had to give it a shot. Didn't have the time to color it this time around.

Still working on the R/R Supergirl. Had another design fully drawn out the other day, and yet again it failed to say "This is my version of Supergirl" to me. I'm in the midst of a third attempt, which I'm sure is gonna work this time. Fingers crossed... : P

Jenny Everywhere

Throwing in another Whitechapel REMAKE/REMODEL Rdesign. This time for Jenny Everywhere, a public domain character created through the internet.

There's a Supergirl REMAKE/REMODEL thread up this week that I'm itching to create something for. I actually did get a drawing done up for it already, but it didn't quite feel right as Supergirl re-design. Luckily, I figured out another use for the design that can be applied towards a new character that I've had in mind for a little while.

Well, I think it's about time I try and start drawing again. Life got a bit busy, and I found myself with less and less time to draw. Now I'm eager to get working on some new projects... hopefully a webcomic. I'm gonna start posting both old and new materials. .. starting with this one from a couple of years ago that I did on the Whitechapel forums. It was for a REMAKE/REMODEL thread for an old character called the Ghost Exterminator. The idea is to take these obscure characters and transform them into something new. This is the write-up that was provided on the character:

The Ghost Exterminator was created by Gelett Burgess and appeared in Cosmopolitan and possibly a few other magazines from 1904 through 1906.

The Exterminator is Hoku Tamanochi, a Japanese San Franciscan who uses an ancient Japanese formula and his family's traditional skills to exorcise the ghosts of San Francisco. Hoku sprays the ghosts with an ancient Japanese powder when he finds them; this turns them semi-solid, and he then uses a bellows to capture them. He then seals them in bottles, thus permanently trapping them.

Hoku is (unwillingly, at first) teamed up with the nameless narrator, who is Hoku's friend. The narrator analyzes the powder and creates a special compound of his own that does the same thing. He then begins stealing Hoku's business (some friend, eh?) and making an additional profit by selling the ghosts, which he can reconstitute with the help of radium. The narrator eventually fumbles things and Hoku is forced to save him. The Exterminator stories follow this pattern: the narrator gets greedy and is initially successful in using Hoku's ideas and methods, but eventually something goes wrong and Hoku is forced to ride in at the last minute and save the day.

This is my current obsession, which I plan to make into an interactive webcomic sometime later this year. I'm not gonna follow the original concept above... most of it is completely re-invented. I had plans to call it "The Ghost Eater" but recently came up with "The Ghoster" while checking up ghost-related word through the online dictionary. It's kinda weird because the word appears that it should be in there, but all it actually does is reference ghost. I found out online that it's a slang word for a person that pulls an all-nighter job in order to get it done the next day, which I thought applies well for a character in a ghost-hunting profession. I'm currently doing the preliminary design work on this. and I'm gonna try and get some scans in from it in the next few days.
