Everyone loves Michael Turners women, and here’s why…Featuring characters from Fathom, Soulfire, and Witchblade with a little Tomb Raider on the side.
Man of Steel has come and gone, Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice is on its way. And here, we have our own take on Superman himself.
I can only remember ever drawing this character, THE Super Hero, twice in my adult life. This is the second version, and the one i like the most. Heavily inspired by Michael Turner, i referenced quite a number of his peices while working on this. And it wasnt easy.
I began this in the summer of 2013, then abandoned it in a bout of frustration. I went back to it earlier this year, during a frenzy of inspiration from my Muse (yes, thats you Krystal Kinzer : ). Finished it in a few hours I did.
I’m hoping to try a few color passes using that Wacom Tablet and Sketch Pro that i recently acquired, but i’m still slowly working on getting that hang of it…
One word: Fantastic! This one goes right up there with John WIlliams’ Superman: The Movie as one of the best CBM soundtracks ever. Danny Elfman created the perfect theme for Tim Burton’s vision of Batman. And that Anvil…I can remember when this was first released how music critics kept talking about Elfman’s use of an anvil as a musical instrument. Superb!!
Highlights: 1) The Batman Theme, 10) Descent into Mystery, 15) Charge of the Batmobile, 16) Attack of the Batwing, 20) Finale, and 21) Batman Theme Reprise…yes, i know each of those focuses solely on Batman. Joker’s music was fitting for Jack Nicholson’s take on the villain.

Thank You to Arnold A Wood Jr (my dad) for providing this new amaizing tool to create art.
This is a portrait of Mr. Miraculous, both in sketch and full color.
And thank you, as always, to my Muse, Krystal Kinzer. You’re input and insight and love are inspiring!
I love you, Krystal!
A few weeks ago i posted the first drawing i created of Mr. Miraculous, inspired by my DCU Online character. Today, I bring you a couple of alternate versions of him. 1st up, we have the animated version. This was drawn in the style of the The Batman, an animated series form a number of years ago that had a very unique aesthetic. Next up is the version as I would see him beging drawn by Ed McGuinness. Ed has a very unique style of drawing and has done some amazing work for both DC Comics and Marvel. Lastly, we have a simple portrait…
