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.

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.

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

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"
