I absolutely love that test cover!
I'll keep my fingers crossed.
The card and the Marvel cover look awesome!
refueled and recharged, thanks for the inspirational pieces!!
hope one day will get to see you conducting one of CA's online live streaming classes!!!
Hey dude, you're amazing ! Nice improvments in 2 years, it's crazy the way you worked your ass off, and now you're working for Mb ! You're the best example for me, because i also wanna reach this goal :p Anyway, i know it's too late, but i find that for the marvel's cover you should vary hand's poses, because the 4 hands looks really similar, they are just seen from different angles ! Especially for the girl, so changing on of the girl's hands would give her more appeal ( i guess ) ! Well that was my 2 cents, from a beginner ! Anyway keep it up and post more art !
Great SB!! keep it up!
hi all : )
So here's my very first cover for Marvel comics (woot!). I did it within a 5 day deadline from thumbnail to completed picture. It was the tightest deadline I ever had for anything and I'm mildly satisifed with the result. Kind of wish I was able to work out some the kinks in it before it went to press. I'm going to push poses harder on future covers as looking back at this one I feel some of the characters are a tad stiff and "plasticky".
The dress and logo were used as a template for what will eventually be added on by someone else before it goes to press.
C and C always welcome : )
Well done, looking forward to more!
sweet cover work! and damn thats rendered all awesome!
Great stuff Mike especially with that deadline! I knew it was a matter of time till I saw your work on Marvels covers ever since you posted that "test" congrats. Hope to see many more.
Hi all! Long time no post. I hope every one had the merriest of holidays and at least a good buzz on new years. Here are a bunch of sketches I did over the last month and a half. Though last year was a busy year for me professionally, I hardly did any sketch book drawing and it became apparent to me that I sucked at getting an idea down quickly and efficiently. I figure since well over 50% of the work I have to do is in the sketch phase I should become more efficient at it. After filling up a couple sketch books, these are the ones I felt most comfortable showing. I continue to sketch after work and will most likely continue posting these in batches.
For a bit of context for anyone curious, my new found "fervor" for quick sketching was brought on by reading through this terrific text on gesture drawing for animation called "Gesture Drawing for Animation" : ) by Walt Stanchfield. Perhaps most of you have had a gesture drawing course (or several) so parts of the text may be old hat, but I STRONGLY urge anyone either professional, ho-fessional and student alike to give this a good read because he offers some great ideas on mental engagement and letting go of unimportant information.
You'll probably notice a couple mini albert dorne studies and a zorn in the mix for good measure too : )
Please feel free to comment and critique.

Love everything in this update. Is the "gesture drawing..." book on top of the "Drawn from Life" books or are they more or less the same thing? I got the "Drawn..." books for XMas, so I'm wondering if I should shell out some more $$$ for the other one...
woah...amazing update, im for sure reading that book now.
Love to see pencil sketches!
Keep sharing those!
