Thank God for the new Thundercats.

I think it has totally redeemed the franchise. Don't get me wrong, I was raised on the original, and my sons still play with my action figures. But wow, the new show is really good. Also I'd like to introduce a new up and comer to the blog, my son Brody. He did his own Thundercats image. Look out boys and girls....

New portrait of ME!

So I have some cool news. The art supply company Caran d'Ache is making an incredible non-photo blue pencil that should be out soon. I know this because it was my idea and I've been working with them to perfect it. If you are an artist who uses non photo blue to pencil with prepare to be amazed. Not only is it soft, and no waxy, but it ERASES LIKE  DREAM. Also my art will be on the packaging. Cool huh? Anyway I did a self portrait that will be included on the tear sheet, so I thought I would share it with you. The pencils should be out really soon.

The Ghost who walks!

I love this guy. I know he kind of looks like Barney with handguns, but something about the tropical home base, and the fact that the character could exist through many times in history, just too cool. Anyway I posted this over at Periodic Heroes, but you get to see the process too.
ps And as with everything on the blog, this is also available as a print

Okay everybody, I have officially taken the plunge into the world of having prints for sale. I got the first batch back and I must say they look really nice. So if you want a print of anything on my blog (or really anything I've done with the exception of some commission pieces) it is available as a print.
The prints are on a super high quality, archival 11"x17" 4 ply bristol board (image proportions may vary. I can let you know what the dimensions are of the actual image if you need that info). Signed.
And for a limited time they are only
If you need them shipped shipping will be extra.
Thanks, Dove

Rocketeer ALL DONE!

Posted over at Periodic Heroes. Process pics coming soon, and prints available soon. Anyone interested? And if so, what size would be best? Never really done prints before so any help would be great.

Fortune and Glory!!

Hey Y'all
Posted this over at Periodic Heroes for my choice INDIANA JONES WEEK! This was a challenge (and I'm not entirely happy with it, well I'm usually not) but I decided to do an image that focused on some of the cool relics and artifacts Indy discovered. I'm also toying with the idea of starting to offer some of these as prints. Anyone interested?
process below.

So here's a few images from a recent class I taught on drawing hands. I make it a point to focus on this because hands are such a critical part of communicating emotion. -dove
