Joe Kubert Assignment 1 - Cowboy Design and 3-Panel Sequence

So here is my first assignment for my correspondence course for the Joe Kubert School. This is a picture I took of my first "draft" of the drawing, I could say. I made a few changes to it, but I've already sealed the envelope to have it sent off. Once I get it back I'll post my finished work, as well as the feedback from the Kubert school.

Having watched the video that came with the package, I feel I'm getting better at drawing. The course has been very helpful to me thus far, and I can't wait to continue on with it. Hopefully I'll look into doing more courses in the future. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess.


Just Say No!

If you're an artist, or someone who appreciates artists, read more about speculative work and how it is detrimental to both artists and clients.

Joe Kubert Goodness!

Re-posted from my Facebook:

Zatanna wishes Lan a happy birthday!

Lew did this for my birthday last year, and then George Marston colored it.

I have it framed on my Zatanna-themed wall, right next to Adam Hughes and Gene Gonzales.

Drink and Draw: August 2009 - Black Cat

So last night I attended my first ever Drink and Draw event at the Mellow Mushroom in Decatur, and it was a lot of fun! For those of you who don't know what it is, Drink and Draw is an event held monthly in Atlanta where artists come together to draw live models dressed as certain superheroes or other comics/movie characters. They even throw out trivia questions for prizes. I got a couple right, so they gave me a couple of free beer glasses. Sweet!

Anywho, at the end of the night, artists will submit their best works to be judged by the models themselves. The prize is basically funny money that's only good at Mellow Mushroom, but hey, it's free food in my book! So here's the picture I submitted:

It didn't place, but I could tell the judges/models really liked it. I guess they didn't pick it because they picked one that looked just like it, only slightly better. Oh well. Better luck next time I suppose.

All in all, it was a neat experience, and I can't wait to do this again next month. I'll be writing more about it in my blog. In the meantime, I've got some more stuff I need draw and post. So stay tuned!

Dr. Mid-nite

Here's Dr. Mid-Nite, with his owl Charlie. I did this a while back, but I'm not particularly pleased with how it turned out. I like how I did the pose and everything, but I'm not so happy about my inking on it, now that I actually see. Plus I'm not too thrilled about his torso area.

Perhaps at some point I'll go back and re-do this one because, even with its flaws, I like this picture, and I know I can do much better on this in hindsight. So keep your eyes peeled for Dr. Mid-Nite 2.0! Coming soon....maybe.

I'm now taking commissions. I'll draw anything you ask me to draw (well, almost anything anyway). Now, if you want a commission, I have a few rules:

1) BE SPECIFIC! Don't hesitate to tell me what it is you want me to draw. I don't like it when people tell me they want me to draw just anything. That doesn't help. So if you had something in mind, tell me what it is and I will draw for you as best as I can.

2) Please give me a due date. I'd like to know when you would like to have your drawing so I can prioritize my projects. Don't tell me you'd like it WHENEVER; if you tell me that, I may never get it done. It doesn't matter if it's in a week or in a month; just give me an idea of when you want me to finish it. That's all I ask.

3) I will need payment before I ship off your picture. I will send you payment through PayPal when I'm finished with the picture. I may throw in a small shipping fee as well, and I may ask for down payment on some projects, but it won't be much if I do ask for it. If for whatever, there is an instance where you can't provide the money before I ship it off, just e-mail me and we'll discuss other options.

My rates are as follows:

Penciled Drawings (11x17)

One character, no background: $10
One character, partial background: $25
One character, full background: $40

Additional characters are $5 each

Inked Drawings (11x17)

One character, no background: $25
One character, partial background: $40
One character, full background: $65

Additional characters are $10 each

Head sketches on 8.5x11 paper are just $5

Prices are negotiable, but that's generally my rates.

So if you wish to help support a struggling artist like me, now's your chance! Just send me an e-mail about what your idea, and I will be happy to draw it for you! Hope to hear from you all soon!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

So here's a little doodle I did for Lan Pitts in one of his many sketchbooks.

I did this with a Sharpie® pen. It's not the best I've done, but I guess it will suffice for now. Until next time.

Introductory Post

Ok. So my last post was brief. I guess I owe it to you guys to give you a more elaborate introduction.

So I'm Lew. I'm an aspiring sequential artist. I just earned an Associate's Degree not too long ago, and I may continue my education at some point, but right now I'm trying to focus on my art a little.

Speaking of my art, I've been drawing pictures for as long as I can remember. I started drawing superheroes at an early age, and I've been doing that ever since, pretty much. I have a deviantART page, although I don't update it that much either.

I told you in my last post: I'm bad at posting stuff on a regular basis. But I'm working on that, or trying to anyway. So just be on the look out. I also take commissions, so if you like my work, drop me a line and we can talk it over.

Until then, see you guys later.

So to commemorate my inaugural blog post, I'll just show you one of my classic pieces:

So yes. I will try to post as much as I can in here, but I'm really bad at this blogging thing. Also I'm bad at posting pictures as well. So I'm going to have to work on that.
