In honor of his birthday, here’s Goni Montes' cover for the upcoming RoboCop #1 (our new series, debuting in July), from the exclusive CBR interview with writer Joshua Williamson.
In developing this series we worked hard to make sure it felt different than any other RoboCop series. The property has been around for a long time, and a lot of different publishers have done RoboCop comics. How would we stand out? In Williamson’s interview you’ll see how we tackle that question in terms of story. We plan to concentrate on the “crime” angle. The original film hit a beautiful balance between being both a science fiction and crime story, and it’s something that felt lost as the franchise continued. We want to see if we can achieve that balance again. 
In terms of covers, we also wanted to do something that had never been seen in RoboCop comics before. There are many approaches to take, and you may see them across some variants. But in terms of the “A” covers we thought it would be interesting to have Goni, who has done amazing cover work on Clive Barker’s Next Testament and was recently nominated for a Spectrum 21 award, approach RoboCop with a sense of surrealism. Alex Murphy’s story is one of identity, with competing allegiances battling themselves inside a mind that is part man and part machine. Goni’s approach illustrates that internal struggle with a startling visual imagination, as the above cover makes clear. As the series continues you will see Murphy and Anne Lewis’ battles, both internal and external, turned into beautiful masterpieces by this distinct talent.

Now this is a birthday gift! Such kind words!
To say the least, I love working with BOOM! and I guess it’s safe to let you all know we’ll be working together on some pretty fun Robocop covers. It’s as exciting as it is scary. Such a high profile story with such a solid fanbase. I better get this right. :D

!!!!!!!!!!!!

Character Design Assignment. Had to design two adventurers with a focus on creating interesting clothing. My concept was a Prince, who accidentally awakened an inhuman, undead necromancer. The two were shackled together, and are searching for the keys that will release them from one another. And since it’s a concept by me, there’s a 99% chance of unlikely friendship.

Rebloggin’ over heeere.

SkullKitty sees into your soul.
The only piece I did that ISN’T inspired by a song, and which really shows the power of a LOT of reference… I think I managed to make my details obsession work in my favor this time, due to fur texture?
So this is the last of my recent adventure with scratchboard. I’d definitely like to do more sometime!

Oh right I have an artblog LETS MAKE USE OF IT

I did another comic! It has knights in it. No one is surprised.

Hello, everyone! Here’s a special announcement! In celebration of the upcoming sequel, and out of love of the original game, I’m putting together a Dark Souls Fanzine!
It’s called “Praise the Sun!” and it’s gonna be the most wicked zine this side of Lordran. Those images up there are spoiler-free previews from my own comic submission.

The zine will feature comics and illustrations in grayscale, with art done by myself and other sweet artists. 

So far I’m planning on making a print run of it for SPX in September, but depending on how much demand there is for it, I could see about putting it up on Gumroad, or one of those digital distribution sites. Or if people REALLY want it, and printed as intended, maybe an Etsy? I dunno though, guys, how bad do you want this thing?

In the meantime, while I’m waiting on work from other artists, I’m planning on liveblogging my experiences with Dark Souls 2, over at my exclusively Dark Souls related blog, YourWingsWillBurn, where I will be making text posts and probably drawing things as I go through my journey.

But yeah! That’s all from me for now, stay tuned for more news, probably gonna post the cover soon, and there is a possibility of opening the zine up to a few submission to other artists here on Tumblr!

Vereor Nox!

Some funny little doodles for a potential project.

Guys, seriously, go to the Opportunities site and check out this awesome cover for chapter 1 that Choices did for us. Or even better, check out her art blog and feast your eyeballs.
We’re kicking off chapter two with updates twice a week from here on out - On Mondays and Fridays.

What she said is true! I was honored with providing some art for my friends’ webcomic! You guys should go and take a gander at it yourself!

I love Dark Souls so much I wanna scream it from the rooftops, but I’m too shy for that so I’m gonna use Tumblr instead. Here’s a bunch of sketches and doodles I’ve done over the last semester. Some good, some bad, some silly, but mostly Tarkus.

Character Design assignment. Had to make a 5 person team based off of the archetypes used in shows like Voltron. So this is the robot team I came up with. I looked at things like Megaman and Steven Universe for inspiration.

I did this thing and I am happy about it.
