Some of the FCBD Sketches I did at the Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find event.
It’s finally off to the printer, and physical copies will be sent out towards the end of April, along with their respective incentive rewards, which I’m finishing up now.
The book is something I’m very pleased with an Introduction by my fellow Sketch Charlotte member, Eraklis Petmezas, the entire Factor of 01 story in a beautiful 8″ x 7 1/4″ format, anotations of every page giving some of the backstory behind the process of telling the story and creating the art, and 5 pages of Guest Art by friends, Eraklis, Brandon Padgett, Joel Carroll, Henry Eudy, Collette Ardith, and Jonathan Rosenbaum. Since it’s in the works at the printer, I’m offering it for pre-order for those of you that want to get the book as soon as it’s available. Pre-orders will get a free digital copy in PDF format on a CD-ROM with a special sketch on the CD sleeve! (Kickstarter contributors will also get this special bonus!)
Here’s some previews of the book so you can see how it looks.
$10.00 + $3.50 shipping!
If you’re outside the US and want to order a book, just let me know!
A is for Aurora
In the tradition of AlphaBots, AlphaBooks, AlphaBeasts and Animal Alphabet, I decided I wanted to do something to get myself to draw, but I wanted to pick something that I wanted to draw, so I combined my interest in drawing women and a love for comics to do AlphaBabes.
Everyone is welcome to submit anytime that they want to, but I’m starting this week with A, which is first represented by Aurora of Alpha Flight. There’ll be another drawing for A because my love for drawing comic book women is large enough for two a week sometimes.
I’m trying to do all of these with grey brushpens so like this one, they’ll all be shaded, just to make them a little more interesting.
Here’s some colors over a sketch for a challenge thrown down by my man, Dave Dumeer to draw a robot wizard. This is what I cam up with.
I’ll repost this when it comes to launch, but right after Factor of 01 goes to the printer, I’ll start sharing a series of illustrations called AlphaBabes. Yes it’s inspired by AlphaBeast/Books/Bots, etc. but I like drawing women, so I’m doing a series of drawings from women in comics. I’m making a Tumblr account just for it, so submissions will be welcome.
Here is one I did for it, assuming that River Song had appeared in a Doctor Who comic, but it doesn’t look like she has. Looks like I might need to do another R.
Doodles I did of Thor during a meeting.
Due to expected inclement weather (in this case snow and ice) towards the early evening, there will be no official Sketch Charlotte meeting on January 17.
We’ll see you next week!
