Vash The Stampede Colored

This is the colored version of Vash "The Stampede" done for Jeremy Jack on Deviant Art. If you're interested in getting a commission like this from me, send me an email and we'll go from there. I typically charge $40 for something like this plus a small shipping charge and paypal fee. I'll be starting on some sequentials next. Hope you guys are all well.

Vash The Stampede

This is a commission for one of my best good pals on here... Mr. Jeremy Jack. If you havn't seen Jeremy's outstanding Deviations yet you are missing out. Take a peak here at this [link] The guy is incredible and prolific is an understatement. He does 10 to 12 deviations in the time it takes me to hack out one. He asked me for a Commission of Vash the Stampede about two weeks ago. These are the lines with colors soon to follow. I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of Anime, but it is starting to grow on me. Luckily I found a few episodes on Youtube and I was able to kinda get the idea of what the character was all about. Anywayz, I hope you guys like it and thank the legend of Jer for ponying up the dough in the first place to get me to draw it. Hope you dig it bro. bestThe J.Walker

These are the colors that I finally got around to after finishing up some work. Part of my 13 deviations in 8 weeks challenge where I'll post thirteen more illustrations either in black and white or color within the next two months. This was one of the five character requests by a follower over on deviant art as part of my 1500 pageviews. I'd planned to do something similar ever 500 page views but I'm not fast enough to keep up with it so I think I'll do another one at 10,000 page views. Either way, I still owe him a danny phantom and his original charcter and I'll get to those eventually. In the meantime I have a trigun piece in the works and possibly something else. Hope you guys are well.

Panzer Print Colors

So I finally finished the colors on this piece. Took way longer than I planned and when it was all said and done I probably made about 20 cent an hour but he was fun, I have feel like I have a fairly nice little illustration done. This was a commission for Garan Madieros [link]I'm currently working on a 4 page backup story for Garan's Book Contract that I'll be doing pencils inks and colors on. This was a little warm up commission that he hired me for. Hope you guys like it. I may piddle with it a bit more but for now I'm calling it done as my eyes are blurring and I want to go to bed.Hope you guys like it. BestThe Jay-Walker

Panzer Commission Lines.

This is a commission for a buddy of mine, Garan Madieros, who writes a comic called contract who I'll also be doing a four page story for, and handling all the art chores for it except writing and lettering. This will be my first attempt at penciling inking and coloring a whole story. I'm excited and scared senseless at the same time. The good news is that Garan is giving me a flexible deadline and he wrote a script to my perceived strengths so hopefully, we'll put out a product that we can both be proud of, but more importantly something fans will enjoy. This guy is one of Garan's Charcters, his name is panzer. He has superstrength and he's somewhat of a poonhound. Ultimately he's just a man's man with a German accent and a cybernetic arm. Garan wanted me to show that he had super strength so this was my best effort. Hope you guys like it. I'm looking forward to jumping into the coloring on it asap.

hope you are all well.

Meet Floberk

This is floberk. Floberk was created by Braeden Penberg. Braeden was nice enough to commisson this from me a couple weeks ago and he's just an all around cool guy. From what I understand, Floberk is an intergalactic Mixed Martial Arts champion who's real power is his ability to suck things into the doorway that is installed in his belly button.

Anyway, if you'd like to see what I was working from or if you just want to see more floberk, check out these links.[link][link][link]

Big Thanks again to Braeden, the owner of this image. He was one of the first to take advantage of my $40 full color sketch prices. He'll get the original pencils to this along with a 13x19" full color print. If you're interested in commissioning me, just send me a note and we'll go from there.Thanks fo r checking him out.

Whirlwind. Character Design 8.

I never got around to uploading the lineart for this one last night mostly because I really wasn't happy with it. I think the color helps but it is still the weakest of the eight illos I did for this gig. Just the same, the publisher liked her so I went with her anyway. I've had a blast on this job and I hope to get more of this kind of work in the future.

Hope you guys are well.

CD7 Maelstrom Colors.

Finished these up last night. He's got two equally strong light sources on him coming from slightly different directions so he was a little difficult to color. Hope I got it right. It made for some tough shadows to interpret.

Hope you guys like it.


Saturday, October 10, 2009

Maelstrom with changes.

Here is he is again. The publisher wanted a slightly stronger jaw and a goatee so I made those changes and fixed that wanky right leg. By the way this character's likeness was based on one of my all time favorite high school students, Adrian Graham.

Hope you guys dig it.



Friday, October 9, 2009

Another character Design...#7.... Maelstrom

Here he is. Hope you guys like it. Colors coming soon.
On another note, Obama got the Nobel Peace prize today. I don't know what for but I now think of the Nobel prize as something similar to a high school diploma. Its an award given for doing pretty much nothing. Great job Guys. Thanks for seeking out the most deserving candidate for that award and pissing on years and years of legacy and prestige

Here is the Yeti Design I posted yeasterday all colored up. Hope you like it. Gotta go eat dinner.

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

The Yeti

Here is another character design. Time is getting tight on these and I need to work some on my basic standing poses so I went with a strightforward design on this one. I think he turned out pretty ok. Hope you guys and gals are well.

Nazi Propaganda Poster Additional Versions.

So, guess what. I obviously don't speak German. What's more, you can't depend on those online translators to get it right either. The one I used actually invented a word I guess, because a guy on Deviant art called me out this german. So being the resourceful guy that I am and using the resources at my disposal, I enlisted the help of my former Tennis Coach and our current German Teacher at my School to translate the phrases into actual german. Here are the new posters. The words a little longer than the ones I initially got, so I don't get the luxury of that nice big "Sturma" in contrast to the other text. These are the best arrangements I could make for the text.

Nazi Storm Trooper Colors.

So here are the colors for this piece. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. All that armor made for a lot of surfaces to deal with but I think he's one of the better ones from this set. Hope you guys like it.

And this is the propaganda poster I made. It hasn't been approved yet for the final print, but I'm hoping it will. I may have to tweak the font, but I'm digging how he layed over that textured background. I was influenced by the Contemporary Army Of One Recruitment ads the Army has been doing. I did my graduate unit for my teaching degree on propaganda and I learned quite a bit about it during that time. The US was actually the first country to create an office strictly for the production of propaganda. It was created under Woodrow Wilson during World War I. Hitler just took all that he could from the way we'd been using it and the way the Roman Catholic Church used it and he elevated it to the next level, convincing a whole country that it was cool to kill six million people. It is dangerous stuff and we've got 10 times as many ways to be exposed to it today as they has back during the 40's. Watch out.Also the text says "A Nations Pride" "Join the Storm Soldiers" "For the Mother Land"

Nazi Stormtrooper Lines.

Here is my design for a modernized version of the Nazi Stormtrooper. The publisher sent lots of reference for me from popular video games etc. Hopefully this looks semi original. I've always wanted an opportunity to draw this kind of stuff and this was a fun one. Hope you guys like. Colors coming soon.

Nazi Spy Chick Colors

Finally got around to coloring this one. I think she turned out pretty good. Always fun to work with primary colors and I think I managed to choose and disperse the colors enough to create an overall unity with her. Hope you guys dig it. This is the final version after edits from the publisher. He requested that her other eye be added in and that her hair be blowing upwards. He als wanted her looking directly at the camera.



Thursday, September 24, 2009

Archer Assassin Colors

Here ya go. Pretty much every color scheme I went with ended up looking too much like green arrow or huntress or Electra so I opted for this one. I think she turned out pretty good in color.

hope you guys think so too.



Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Another Character Design. Archer Assassin

Here she is. Didn't get a chance to color the nazi spy chick today but I wanted to draw so I knocked this one out. Hope you guys like it.



Nazi spy chick with 2 eyes.

Here she is with two eyes. I finally broke down and attempted to resolve the whole issue with her eyes. Let me know what you guys think. Struggling with this one.

My 100th post and a boobie girl too.

So how fitting is it that my 100th post would also be a drawing of my first boobie girl that I actually took to the level of completed illustration in god knows how long. Two versions of her. Her personality is that of a butch nazi spy dominatrix kinda gal. You know the type, the ball busting blonde with slight lesbian undertones. The first version I did said all of that but I think she looks a lottle androgenous. I softened the brow and the nose up on the second one and I think that is the one I'll end up coloring. Anyway, here's to hitting 1000 entries and drawing alot more boobie girls that are much better than this one. The top version is the one that I settled on, though I think the publisher still wants some tweaks. Garry brought it to my attention that she looked like a cyclops in the other two.

Hope you guys are well.

Nat-Z Occultist Sinister Leader Guy.

Here are the chromatic enhancements for meester Bernhard Volger. The pub ended up really digging the character sketch which is good cause I'd almost finished coloring this bad boy before I ever heard back from him.

Hope you guys dig it. Next I think I'll draw a chick.

Character Design 2: Nazi Occultist Leader

Yup that is what this guy is all about. Meet Bernhard Volger, he's a sinister dude with idea of using arkane science, islamic mysticism and occult magics to take over the world. Every once in a while I get to draw something that is really fun. This was one of those cases.

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Charcter Design 1 Colors

Here are the colors for the character I uploaded last night. I went as far away from hakman as I could. He looks more like an anti-hero now or maybe even a little bad guy but I dig it. The publisher really liked it. Hope you guys do to.

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Character Design

This is the first of eight character designs for a new project I'm working on. Should have these coming out pretty regularly as the deadline is kinda tight. A hawkman inspired character. I'll push him with color more toward the robotic direction.
Hope you guys are well.

Monday, September 14, 2009


This is a character named Hoss from Cartoon Network's Undefist. I watched a little bit of the Halloween special last night on Youtube. It's alright. Neat characters but the typical watered down ren and stimpy humor cartoon network is all about.

He was a pain in the butt to draw, & I bet I sketched him 30 to 40 times before I finally found some joy. I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out. I see a few tweaks here and there that I need to make but overall I'm glad he's drawn. Hopefully I can work on some colors today but this is a thick week for me with work so we'll see.

Hope you are all well.

thanks for checking it out.

A fixed version of Samurai Jack

This illo has been very popular over at Deviant art but one of the minor criticisms I've had on it come from Robert Atkins who informed me of the anatomy of a Katana Sword. Apparently, and I hadn't even considered this, the diamonds and embellishments that are on the handle of the sword are on the flat side with the blade. In the original illo they were a little off which made it look like he was screwing the handle onto the sword. This is the kind thing I think that separates pros from amateurs like me. I don't think that drawings need to be filled with detail but I do think the details you put in should atleast be accurate so thanks to Robert for the heads up. Here is the fixed version.

Samurai Jack Sword Detail

So I put this little logo I found from the a very popular movie that came out in the last few years on the sword, but I don't think it's visible at the resolution I uploaded it at so here is a detail for you guys.



Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Samurai Jack Colors.

Here are the colors. Zoom in on the hilt of the sword. I left a little easter egg there for you guys.

hope you are all well.

Samurai Jack Lines

You know the deal.... I put up a contest for the 1500th view of my deviant art page and the winner got to pick 5 characters he wanted to see me draw. Samurai Jack is one of them. I've never drawn him before because besides the fact that I found the show visually interesting when I first saw it, I never watched an episode of it. But I think I'll go back and watch it abit. He was a fun sketch none the less and I'm excited about seeing how he turns out in color.

Hope you are all well.

El Tigre colored.

Here are the colors for El Tigre for the 1500 page views contest. One down Four to go. Underfist is up next.


Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Face it El Tigre you just hit the Jackpot.

Alright, before you lay into me about why the hell I drew a character called El Tigre, let me explain. See, last friday I was getting pretty close to 1500 page views over at my Deviant Art Page and I wanted to go ahead and push things over the edge so I came up with a little contest where by who ever was the first to comment after I hit 1500 page views would win the chance to boss me around for my next five illustrations by getting to choose who I drew. So I put the contest in my Journal and went beddy bye for the evening. The next morning I woke up to find that not only had I surpassed 1500 page views, but that the winner was one of my more loyal watchers Superplayer J. He's waited dilligently for the numbers to pile up and BOOM! 1500 pages views fell like a ton of bricks.

So I emailed him and told him he'd won and that he should send me a list of 5 characters he'd like me to draw. Now in my experience, certain characters are bound to fall if you give someone a chance to make requests in comics. I figured I'd get a Batgirl, maybe a Harley or Poison Ivy, probably a hellboy. On the otherhand, I figured, maybe this guy would shoot the moon and I'd get some obscure Anime that I'd have to scour google to find reference of and then i'd get the Batgirl, Harley, Hellboy and Batman. Nope. Superplayerj is a conosieur of all things comics and he posted one of the most eccentric and out of left field lists of characters I'd ever encountered. Not since the days of Scuba Steve and Rouphie have I see a list of requests like this and Mr. El Tigre here happened to be one of them. So here he is, in all his glory waiting on some chromatic enhancement from yours truly to make him sing take me out to the bullfights.

Hope you are all well. Enjoy the Tiger

Conan Colors.

Here are the colors for that Derek Fridolfs Sketch of that I submitted lineart for last week. I think they came out pretty well.



Friday, August 28, 2009

Conan Inks over Fridolfs

So my pal Derek Fridolfs posted this sweet rough sketch of Conan last night that has several people on Deviant Art going nuts including me. I asked if I could take it on out to conclusion and he agreed to let me have at it so here are the inks. I need to do a little tweaking here and there. I should have colors pretty soon. If you don't know his work, he's most famous for inking Batman Streets of Gotham over Dustin Nguyen but he's a heck of a cartoonist too. Check him out at
Hope you guys are well.

hope you guys are well.

Cooler Bizarro

Another suggestion from Krayola, to push the reds more toward the violets. I thought I'd done this but in comparison I see that I hadn't. So here it is. A cooler colored Bizarro.

Darker Bizarro

Had several requests for a darker version of this. When Krayola says change the colors I have to take him seriously. Hope you guys dig it too.

Black Manta Colors

See what I told ya. Hope this measures up. It's hard to make this character cool or interesting.... or heterosexual.


Black Manta LInes

So this one goes out to one of the only three fans of the character Black Manta that I know of... my good buddy Will Black. He's consumed with all things Aquaman and Underwater so that means he has to like Black Manta as well. This is the lineart. Not so impressive I guess, but as I said with the Bizarro Post, I'm pushing myself to simplify some and abstract the figure down. This leaves them looking flat, but color and shape are then used to create the form.

Colors coming soon... like in the amount of time it takes me to upload another post.

hope you guys are well.



Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Bizarro Colors.

Here he is in all his pastel glory. He was much easier to color than my previous endeavours. I may go with a more saturated version of him as well. Let me know what ya think.
Maybe this is the start of a legion of doom print.
Hope You're well.

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Bizarro, experiment

Hey Guys,

Just experimenting with abstracting the figures down even more. Not sure if this is working yet, but I'm gonna try to move in this direction for a while and see what happens.

hope you are all well.

Scarecrow Colors

This guys nearly killed me. We've been duking it out for the last 4 hours or so. I wasn't digging him so much when I initially started coloring but I think he turned out ok in the final product. I don't know though, my eyes are blurring right now. It's 12:30 am and I have to teach tomorrow.

The pin stripes were tough, but that frigging rope, made me want to hang myself with it.

Hope you guys are doing well.

The Scarecrow

I've had this guy roughed out in my sketchbook for a few months now, but never got around to taking him to completion. Couldn't get motivated to work on anything that I needed to today so I pulled him out and figured I'd throw some inks on it and maybe some colors as well. Here are the lines.

Unfair Trade

An illustration from 2005 as part of a series that dealt with finding alternative fuel sources. This was at the beginning of gas prices shooting through the roof and my first encounter with gas shortages and lines at the pump. It was also at a time when I found out that my brother was going to have to go to Iraq.
Title Unfair Trade
Artist Jason Walker
Dimensions 13"x19"
Medium: Pen and Ink and Illustrator and photoshop on digital paper
Time: September 2005.

Contrasting Blurs.

Woke up late for school today. Got ready and drove to school in 13 minutes. I'm the flash, only I look and feel like crap now.

Garry gave me the heads up on what I was already thinking that forground and background were awkward with the same depth of field applied so I adjusted this. It brings to light the real downfall of working in this method in that Illustrator doesn't have a lot of versatility or variety when it comes to blur filters etc. If anyone knows where I can download more SVG filter plug ins for Photoshop, Let me know. I desparately need them.

Hope you are all well.

Shwann Commission Colors

So I finally finished this one up. I'm pretty ok with it. Hope the guy who commissioned it is too. I'm gonna focus on sequentials for a while so I don't know how often I'll be posting but I need to get my interiors chops back up to par. I've got a feeling it is going to be big year for me between now and next august. At least I'm praying that will be the case. I don't know how many of you believe in God. I hope you all do and I want you to know that I've only recently begun to pray for his help in my career and he's showered blessings on me. Give it a try sometime. Until next time, I love you guys.
The first is just a detail and the last two differ in that one has a blur and the other doesn't. Didn't have a preference so I uploaded all three.
take your pick.
