Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 289

BATMAN #33. 2014. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Did I ever post this reference? If I did, I don't have a record of it (and I apologize). My Dad inked this piece and I added the post-it notes and strings digitally. The string motif was taken from a page of the book, a splash that featured the Riddler.

Morpheus

MORPHEUS. 2015. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Huge thanks to everyone who came by the Hero Initiative booth in Sacramento! I had a great weekend, and even got to see Norman Reedus at the hotel. I hope they gave him a copy of our Walking Dead cover.

Sacramento 2015

THE WALKING DEAD #1 (Wizard World Sacramento Variant). 2015.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

I'll be at Wizard World Sacramento this weekend, courtesy of Hero Initiative, booth #155. I'll be doing sketches all weekend, with all proceeds going to Hero. We'll also be selling limited edition copies of my Dad and my Walking Dead cover, a Sacramento exclusive (half of those proceeds will be going to Hero, the other half for my grubby paws). I'll try to save some copies to sell through my online store.

And if you're around on Sunday, I'll be part of a Spider-Man panel hosted by Danny Fingeroth in Room 314 from 1:00 - 1:45 PM. Hope you can make it to the show... this might just be my last of the year. Have a great weekend!

Little Nemo Coasters


Little Nemo coasters are here! (And you can thank my wife for making it happen!) There are 4 options to buy, one of which is the complete set of 16. They are based on my page from the Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream anthology. You can purchase them at my store for a limited time. (Apologies, but we only ship within the US.)

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 288

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #639 p.25. 2010.
Ink on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Waaaay back in One Moment in Time, I utilized a ton of Sketchup models that Joe Quesada gave me. He had used the models himself and, since the story had the same setting, it only made sense to use them as well. They especially came in handy for the hospital scenes, which always take me a long time.

I Am Iron Man

IRON MAN. 2014. Ink & watercolor (by Joe Rivera) on paper board, 9 × 12″.

Here's a commission from last year that I penciled and my Dad inked and colored. You're probably familiar with the character by now. I, for one, am pretty excited about Civil War.

Wizard World Sacramento is this weekend, my last convention of the year! I'll post the details later this week, but I'll be a guest of the Hero Initiative, and will be on a Spider-Man panel. We'll be selling our limited edition copies of The Walking Dead, details below.

I should also mention that there is a not insignificant chance that I'll have to cancel at the last minute (or leave early). My wife and I are expecting our first child (!!!!). Although not due for another few weeks, such things are unpredictable. If that happens, I'll give a heads up via Twitter, and you probably won't hear from me for the next 18 years!

Stormy, Chance of Good Pun

STORM. 2015. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Here's a Storm commission from Megacon earlier this year. And below is my take on Jon Bernthal as Punisher. It was just announced this week that he'll be joining the cast of Daredevil in season 2! And lastly, here's an interview with Mightyville from last month. Have a great weekend!

Tears from a Rocket

Joe and Paolo Rivera. ROCKETEER. 2013.
Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Here's a commission from 2013 that my Dad inked and painted over my pencils. Good job, Dad! Still one of my favorite character designs ever.

Flash Dance

FLASH. 2015. Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Here's a recent commission of Flash stopping (that's the only way I'll draw him). Also, I wanted to mention a great app that I just picked up called Handy Art Reference Tool. It has hand poses and heads that you can manipulate in 3D, plus great lighting options that include cast shadows. I found out about it when I gave a talk at Academy of Art University last month. Thanks for the suggestion, guys! Have a great weekend!

Colossi(?)

COLOSSUS. 2014. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

If you haven't noticed, this blog has been seriously lacking in Colossus drawings as of late. Today's post is meant to remedy that.
