Martian Man Hunter it's always a fun character to work with, specially with that unusual look Darwyn gave him.
Probably one of the best things I have ever worked for. I was fortunate enough to do some character design freelance for it.
I got to work on Hal Jordan and the Martian Man Hunter between many others.
Here is a still related to one of the characters I worked with.
Justice League The New Frontier was released on DVD February 26 2008.
I'm proud of you Darwyn.

This version was my first rough. I was trying to capture that Mignola look and make it more like the Wolves of Saint August.
I heard a rumor that Mike Mignola has a problem when other people imitates his style. Maybe that's why they didn't go for my version.
Werewolf design for Hellboy: Sword of Storms.
I've never seen a werewolf with long hair, it kind of reminds me of Shaggy from Scooby Doo.
I actually cleaned this one up, Tad Stones penciled it.

I guess it feels proper to post some Spidey images now that Spiderman 3 it's out.
From the same sketchbook, practicing my Romita Jr. style. The only thing I had at the moment to ink with was that brush-pen Sakura. It was kind of fun exploring with the brush.

In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC, an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the enemy in one of the most famous last stands of history.
The subsequent Greek victory in the Battle of Salamis left much of the Persian navy destroyed. Xerxes was forced to flee to Asia and left his army in Greece under Mardonius, who was to meet the Greeks in battle for one last time. The Spartans and other Greek allies assembled at full strength and decisively defeated the Persians in the Battle of Plataea, putting an end to the Greco-Persian War.
The performance of the defenders at the battle of Thermopylae is often used as an example of the advantages of training, equipment and good use of terrain to maximize an army's potential, as well as a symbol of courage against overwhelming odds. The heroic sacrifice of the Spartans and the Thespians has captured the minds of many throughout the ages and has given birth to many cultural references as a result.

Top. Martian Man Hunter sketch for Paul Wee.
Middle. I was asked to do this poster by the producers of the show but they never did anything with it. So I decided to finish the job and color it myself.
Bottom. Robot Mummy from the JLU episode Ancient History. The Hawkman and Shadow Thief (from "Shadow of the Hawk") return and the secret behind both their existences is finally revealed.
I guess it's no secret by now, yes I like sexy girls in tight jeans...well, who doesn't. From Sorayama to frank Cho as inspiration, I even became a photographer for a website featuring sexy models wearing skin tight jeans. It was a great learning experience and not only as a photographer, the site's name was Jeans Angels. It does no longer exists.
Magnattack from the Official Handbook of the Invincible #2 - K-W - Kursk to Winslow. Released by Image on January 1, 2007. I made this one for my pal Dusty Abell. Anything you've ever wanted to know about the characters in INVINCIBLE but were afraid to ask. Power levels, hometowns, relatives, origins, shoe sizes... it's all here. Written in the tradition of that other famous handbook and featuring drawings from some of the top talents in comics and animation. A MUST HAVE FOR ANY INVINCIBLE FAN!
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might
Beware my Power, Green Lantern's Light!"
The bottom piece it's from a Justice League episode named Kids Stuff, where Mordred turns the JL into kids. Here is the Green Lantern John Stuart as a kid.
