    hey mike where do you start when you draw a person? i have been having the hardest time lately trying to draw a person from imagination, i start from the eyes and if i manage to draw a decent looking face, i can never think of a body that makes sense with it.. what do you do? do you start with the body?

    The brain picture for superbad made me laugh!
    It's amazing how fast you can capture likenesses. that's something I don't know how to do well yet... I'll probably contact you with some quick questions about the subject sometime, if you don't mind

    Sketches for the box cover. The top thumbs are sketched with a bic pen and the tighter one's with a black and grey prisma on Dura-lene.

    awesome stuff mike! Great values that make me want to lick the power socket. I could go with my head in the oven... Nothing is decided.

    Thank you b-man! I would go with licking peanut butter off the wall socket, it will keep you up longer when you have a particularly vicious deadline [ beats coffee].

    Catwomans body was traced from a really amazing artist, and i cant remember his name but i bet some out there will recognize his style. This was the style and look my client requested.
