Marvel Universe 2014 sample sketch cards from Rittenhouse Archives!

Here is a smaple sheet of my full-color sketch cards for Rittenhouse Archives’ upcoming Marvel Universe 2014 Collectible Card set.

Getting to work on this set was special for me as I have been a Marvel fan for as long as my failing memory will allow.

I hope you will check the cards out when they hit the stores.

You might even find one of my painted originals squirreled away in the next box you purchase. :)

My latest paintings for an on-line card game.

My three latest color pieces to be released into the wild.
I am particularly excited about these as I am starting to make better use of saturated and neutral colors.
I also did less editing of my natural drawing style.
It loosened things up a bit.

I realize the differences in these from my other work may not be all that obvious, but they represent a coalescence of things I’ve been working on of late.

I hope you like them!

Daily Warm-up. Green with anger!

Just a bit of fanboy showing through today in the sketchbook—with a quick and dirty pass of digital color for giggles. :)

Artist’s head is included in photo for scale.
Yes, the artist’s head is really that big…

He does not come with the painting as shipping costs would be ghastly.

Renfield ain’t pretty.

But he likes birds.

He can’t be all bad. :)
