More Teen Titans Designs!


The mysterious 'Charcoal Girl'. Not her actual name, but descriptive no? Last night the DCNu started with the release of JL1 and the conclusion of Flashpoint. I have to wait to get my comp copies from DC so I'm a bit bummed. But the rest of you don't have to! Head to you local comic shop or try the digital download thing at Comixology! I would do that myself, but I have limited bandwidth and have no idea how large those files are, so waiting it is!

On a side note Teen Titans #1 went to the printer last Friday, a week early!

And yes, those are my super ultra fancy inks! Now you know why I don't do it!

Have a Happy New 52!

Best,

Brett

#52MYSTERIES


And there was another Wonder Girl design!


Sorry about the no feet. I bought some sketch paper that just was horrible, so I had to draw a bit bigger and then the feet got shopped off. It's just a design so no biggie.

Best!

Brett

And yes ANOTHER Kid FLash design.


A bit to much like an X on his chest so into the dumpster! But it did give Jim and idea, so not completely useless!

Comic-Kaze?

Comic-Kaze TM Fatboy73


Definition:A socially suicidal individual who visits comic book based websites as to bombard them with unsubstantiated
negative views in order to do a perceived damage upon certain individuals for no apparent reason other than pure spite.





Will this offend anyone with Japanese heritage? I know there is a drink named Kamikaze so I'm not sure if it's considered OK to use variations of it for fun.


Anyone?

This Sunday: Let's Get Hitched!


All of these types of Marriage are approved of in the Bible. But Jess tells me the polygany is spelled wrong, that should be polygamy. Anywho, with such a wonderful image as this (I can't remember were I found it!) it's no wonder that Christians want to preserve the 'traditional' marriage. So I guess we now get to choose which kind of marriage we want cause freewill and all that!

Sorry to all the gay people, as you can see traditional marriage is far to perfect to allow you to be happy and because god says it should be so. He's so loving!

I just read this, Pastor Mike wants a list of all Atheists.  Nice, compare Atheists to the KKK yet he's the one trying to marginalize people. After that what's next? Camps for our own protection? If we're lucky maybe we'll get some reservations, that's worked so well in the past.

More Fanboy Madness!



So I just want to say thanks to Bleeding Cool for blowing this out of proportion, and then thanks to Henry Saenz email: utsandy@hotmail.com for the kind words. It's always nice to hear from intellectuals. 

Best!

Brett


I of course emailed him back to thank Henry for his thoughtful note! And then I heard back again!




We do need a name for these people of love, I don't want to make the actual comic fans annoyed. Any ideas? Trolls are mentioned in the comments... since they tend to infest a bit maybe some kind of pubic lice?



Teen Titans 100 pinup pencils


Pencils for that pinup I did.

Wonder Woman... with pants!


Another quicky, I gave her the boots and the pants... I'm not actually sure why I kept the boots on her when I decided to go with the pants...  Tired? Me?

Them crazy fanboys!

Oh the stupidity! I was just informed that the person who emailed me privately to bitch me out about the Green Arrow cover posted PART of the exchange on the interwebs, of course redacting his name. Well Merrit I have whole thing so I'll post that. It's only fair to get the whole thing;)


So this is the rest of it. :
Click for big and legible.


Sure, I could have been nicer, but attacking me right off the bat... doesn't put me in a good mood. Don't waste my time with something that matters not in the real world. Brett was mean to me, so go get him interwebs! Dude, people have wanted me to die rather than draw there precious characters again. 
It does amuse me that I put a gun to his head to make him send me that email. So what have we learned today, don't get pissy with me and I won't get pissy with you. 


One other note. If I had been asked to do the covers regularly (I would have refused most likely due to time) I would have looked up archery and the like. I did it for Rex and Bill in the JLA books. I even looked up Detective Chimp. But a quick drawing of someone firing a bow and arrow... a quickly fired arrow at that. I'm sure Oliver had plenty of time to set himself and aim too! Splitter.

Best!

Edited to add a screenshot because the dialog was not displaying correctly. Let this be a lesson, children. Because if I'm bored, I take these little e-mails and comments, with all identifying information, and I put them up here with additional snarky commentary as a object lesson. If you think Brett is mean, well, I taught him everything he knows. ~Jess

Comments are closed due to the sheer number of entitled fanboys who can't read well. I have to work and don't have time to listen to your complaining.

Wally West Flash!


PLEASE NOTE (and I do this in bold!) THIS IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT PART OF THE DC NEW 52!!!

Today I'm taking off to sort of recharge. But my mind is racing with excitement over DC's new 52. So since Wally is my all time favorite DC or Marvel character I thought I'd re imagine him for the DC new.

I won't get into details but I was going for a sort of 18-20 year old Wally between Bart and Barry, a college Wally. I have a few ideas if and when he pops up in the new DC universe, I'd love to get a chance to draw that book! It's funny, I've read some nasty posts that I don't get the love fans have for Wally and Donna, I do. I was with Wally when he first took over for Barry, through Chunk and Speed Demon and the Porcupine Man. If I had to pick one book to work on it would be his. BUT I'm still able to joke about it some, dreams do come true but there is always a down side. Don't take things so seriously, you'll live longer and be happier!

Long live Wally West!

New Teen Titan page on Twitter!

I have just posted a new Teen Titans page via the Twitter. It's a page from issue 4 originally the cover it was decided it wasn't flashy enough so we moved it to the inside and added a panel (since there was a page like that on the inside already that had 2 panels.)

So go check out the Twitter thing over there<-------

This Sunday, we are so fucked!

So the presidential race is heating up... at least it's got me a-boilin'! Now I don't want to tell people who to vote for, because frankly both parties are in the crapper right now. We need money and the right wants to keep cutting taxes on the rich. And the left is so completely limp they can't get anything done. Obama isn't a democrate he's a middle of the road Republican with no backbone. But this is a Sunday Blasphemy post so on to religion!

Right now the right wing, has several dominionists running for president, what the hell is a dominionist you ask? Why these are the ultra right wing nut jobs who want to force their specific brand of crazy down your throat by making their version of Christianity law, from wiki:

-The goal is either a nation governed by Christians, or a nation governed by a conservative Christian understanding of biblical law-

I'm not talking about the the minor forcing that's being thrust upon us now, I'm talking about a convert or die kind of force. A force that's so behind the times that most people will write it off without really thinking. But remember, Perry has been elected to governor of Texas 3 times... They do have their backers and if everyone else is arguing about the other guys the ultra religious might have enough voters to get one of them elected.

A few more loving sentiments:


1. Dominionists celebrate Christian nationalism, in that they believe that the United States once was, and should once again be, a Christian nation. In this way, they deny the Enlightenment roots of American democracy.
2. Dominionists promote religious supremacy, insofar as they generally do not respect the equality of other religions, or even other versions of Christianity.
3. Dominionists endorse theocratic visions, insofar as they believe that the Ten Commandments, or "biblical law," should be the foundation of American law, and that the U.S. Constitution should be seen as a vehicle for implementing Biblical principles.[21]



Once again the US was never a Christian Nation, sure some religious type moved here, but that doesn't mean the nation founded in 1776 was founded by Christians, it was founded by people who were pissed off at England. Most might have been Christians but they didn't fight England to be Christians, they fought because of tea and taxes;)


And I can't see religion as supreme to anything... morals being one of them. Forcing yourself on others is called rape. Forcing your religion on others might not be physical but it is mentally damaging. This is also the easiest way to start a civil war because this would do it for me. Sure everyone who didn't get on board could leave, BUT that would give the religious fanatices complete control over out Nuclear Weapons.... they'll get their revelations one way or another leaving them in charge of something like that is just delaying the inevitable. 


Now instead of dicking around fighting all time it would be nice if the government actually, you know, did it's job. Compromise is what gets things done, not standoffs... Idiots. That's all I can stomach this week, oh there is that 'miracle' that happened were a Country Pop group didn't go on stage because they were praying so they didn't die when the stage collapsed... while 5 other people did. Praise Jesus! Ugh!


Best,

N.O.W.H.E.R.E. In Teen Titans 1!

Page 8 of issue 1, the first appearance of N.O.W.H.E.R.E. in Teen Titans. That is of course Red Robin in panel 1. I thought it might be cool to show you the process a page goes through from pencils to colors. While showing off the new baddies. 


These are an elite group of agents who take orders from that guy in the center. He's spooky;)


I numbered the agents... so I knew who was doing what. I get confused easily. Here's Norm's inks, fixing all mistakes and filling in al the X's. That means that area should be black.


And the finished colored page from Andrew sans lettering. So who is the faced... facefull... that guy in the middle? Like a Tootsie Pop, the world may never know... until we need to boost the sales, then you're not going to believe who he is... I mean DAMN!!! It's like CRAZY KOOL!... I mean OOOoooOOOo Spooky yes?

More next week.... I might have to sign up for the Twitter to post it though... So maybe not;P

Let the crazy reading into my posts begin!

Best!

Another Wonder Girl Design


This one almost made it through... until it got Vetoed;) Oh and the other lasso with the pokie things on it isn't barbed wire, it's thorny vines.

Send in the CLONE! Superboy designs.



This was my first idea for SB. Yes the 'S' is a mess but it's a sketch, not a finished picture. Simple.


This one was a bit more moderny. I gave him a jacket and gloves and some Neo glasses. 

Best!

Teen Titans 3 cover


Just about to start on the issue 4 cover. Needed a few days off to recharge. So in less than a year at DC I've had to draw trains twice so far. In 18 years in the biz these are the only trains I've ever had to draw.

Strange the way things work out:)

Red Robin..... YUM!


Ok Ronnie here ya go! My first sketch of Tim, with the wings back. They don't look exactly like that in the comic but similar. I pulled stuff from the TT cartoon as well, like his computer glove and the leg squares (actually C-4.)


A REALLY basic first idea about the wings from the back.


And here he is with the classic cape with notches cut out. My favorite, but I was out voted. The new wings are growing on me, but don't tell Scott!!!

Best!

Brett

Wonder Girl sketch


So this was sort of the 'final' costume we did of her. I has been slightly modified from this, specifically her right hand and the amount of red on the costume. Andrew's doing something cool with the star starting in issue 2 so I think I might go back to a darker look for issue 4, which I'll be starting in a few days. I just finished up 3 and need a few days off to recharge:) Issue 4... epic!

World of Flashpoint 3 Cover


Inks by Norm Rapmund and colors by Andrew Dalhouse. 


Original pencils. Still waiting to hear from DC, there is a third page from Teen Titans 1 floating around the interwebs I'm trying to see if I can post it since it hasn't been on the 'official' website.

Just about finished with TT3, doing the double page spread from hell today and then 2 pages left. So no Sunday Blaspheme this week while I finish up:(

Best!
