Free Comic Book Day Tomorrow!

Here's the cover I did for the Dabelbrothers free comic. Colores by Andrew Dalhouse.

Best,

Sweet. So that is yours. I snagged it the other day from Dalhouse' Deviant page. Thought it might have just been a nice fan coloring.

You ever do any model sheet of your characters, Brett? Would be nice to have some templates of your artist style to work from - front, back, side, etc.

Cheers

Christopher

Hi Christopher,

I just do the character designs. The model sheets seem sort of redundant to me after the designs are done.

Best,

Brett

Christopher said...

RATS!

Yeah, they are totally redundant but my 3D modelers need them which is why I've been hunting for templates all week. I hate drawing them. I can never get them even.

All I find on the net are stupid cartoon sheets. I've been using some of your body designs - not characters - as templates and that has really speeded things up.

You would think modelers could just work from character designs but man, they are whiny when they don't have their turnarounds :)

Sorry bout that. I know there are some old comic character designs from Marvel floating around the net. I've seen them, at least the old cowboy ones.

Cartoons and 3D stuff are the only mediums I know of that use the turnarounds. Your sort of given some space to do the costumes in your style a bit.

I did do a dinosaur trunaround years ago, that was a bitch to draw, for some 3D stuff. Not so much the drawing but the paleontologist refused to give me any information at all. Wait for the paper my ass! You can't say that and then when something is wrong on the design complain about it. Grrrr.

Best,

Hi Brett,

Wow, i would love to see these Marvel character designs, i never see something like that of you.

I searched the net,but can´t find them.

Hope you will show us some. ;)

Best,

Baron

Brett said...

Baron,

You misunderstood, I have not drawn any, except a dinosaur. These would be old, like 1980's designs. I've seen some on the net and a few were sent to me when I was working for Marvel.:)

Best,

Brett

Baron said...

Sorry for the missunderstanding Brett.^^

So have you eventually some proposal art, you sent to the comic companies before you start in the comic business?

To see how your intepretation of the comic characters was, before you went to be a professional artist.

Best,

Baron :)

Christopher said...

@Baron, here is a link to those Marvel character sheets, plus several thousand more. They are old, like Brett said. Not much use to me but there is a lot of good artist ref pictures to be found.

And I second that last comment. I would love to see some of Brett's early pre fam work. The excitment, adventure and beauty of early Booth work...WOW!! :)

Chris, if you're looking for model sheets with turnarounds, google Alex Toth model sheets. There are lots of his stuff.
Also try this: http://www.marveldirectory.com/individuals/index.htm
Click on a name and on the bottom of each characters page are turnarounds.
Hope this helps.

Baron and Christopher,

You are assuming that I actually keep stuff like that around, sorry I don't have anything that old. I've moved a bunch of times and things get lost. Plus I moved from Florida to California and only brought clothing. All that old stuff got tossed out. But I can say that alot of my Wildstorm stuff was based on older designs of mine. Including Backlash, most of Wildcore and some of the Warguard.

Also you're assuming I'd show that horrible stuff, and trust me it was horrible;)

Best,

Brett

Baron said...

Ohh, what a waste. :(

Brett if you ever will move again and
toss some art away, please mail me. ;)

Best,

Baron
