Thanos&Death Final by artildawn
Thanos&Death Final
18x24 on stretched canvas.  Mixed media, but Posca and Montana markers mostly.  Made as an auction piece for Hoku Kon 2015

A stare down just to give a sense of scale:

About 5 hours into this 18x24 canvas piece.  Really wish I was one of those guys that could paint really fast.

Thanos and Death concept
Concept drawing for an 18x24 canvas piece I want to do.  I'm happy with how Thanos is looking but not so much with Death.  I'm find it hard to convey the skull under the skin in pencil.  Hope I can make it more clear in colors    
Hulk-tee-2015 by artildawn
Figured I was overdue to draw another tee shirt.  And a Hulk tee just in time for Age of Ultron seemed fitting.

Paint and fabric markers on a cotten tee.

Green T Lantern
I recently had the opportunity to work on a Make-a-Wish project for a young man, Tristan "TJ" Fernandez, who has an inoperable brain tumor.  His wish was to be in his own comic book series.  Unfortunately the other artists and I only had about a week to work on this.  We compromised by created faux comic book covers with him with as some of his favorite comic and anime characters.  A local graphics studio, Wall to Wall, printed and mounted the art for presentation and display.

The folks at Make-a-Wish also made up a small portfolio with the art and a short message from each artist.

A short video from the day they presented him the artwork.

A short message from the artists.

Full replay of the drawing process from pencil to colors. Saved at 12x speed, run time 11:37.…

Personal Quote: The root of twitter is twit, take the hint.

I have a Facebook page set for business in Hawaii. Most of the art there is on here as well, but there I'll list locations where some pieces may be available.
I have several blank sketch variants available that I'm opening to doing commissions on.  I'm posting the printed cover versions here for clarity of which comic storyline it is.  If you would like something specific on any of the issues shown, shoot me a message.  Billing will be done via paypal, but buyer does not need to have paypal account.  Pricing will depend up the complexity of the commission.  For U.S. add $5 for shipping.  Outside the U.S. I'll have to get pricing for shipping. I'll update this journal as covers are no longer blank.

Thanks, and thanks for watching too.  I'm all over the place in terms of styles and subjects, but hopefully you'll see something interesting along the way.

Hi there, I know you help me before, so could you help my friend? She is really hurt and one her friends told by journal, she is sad. But hopefully, we can help her somehow.…
