Wizard World Texas 08 Sketches by stalk Wizard World Texas 08 Sketches by stalk
Sketches from Wizard World Texas 2008 that I managed to get snapshots of.

These were supposed to just be quick pencil sketches but I used my red and blue .07 leads to add a bit of punch and give the owners more bang for their buck.

Death: She is always a pleasure to sketch at shows. I forgot her trademark ankh and my wife noticed but the owner had picked her up already. Luckily he came back for another sketch the next day and wanted to know if I could add the ankh to this one. Feeling bad for cheesing such an important character detail I not only fixed this one but inked his other pencil sketch for free.

Black Cat: I always forget how her mask goes and make it up on the spot. The fur trim sometimes throws me off but I hate carrying reference or asking for it unless it's something that the buyer really wants to see. Usually the Campos version goes over pretty well though as was the case here.

Power Girl: This was my first time drawing her and I had no clue what she looked like other than a vague idea. Luckily someone had a drawing of her on their table banner that helped me out of that bind.

That's a great PG...for your first time drawing her, you did really well. I like the look on her face and the pose. The others are great too but the PG stands out.

Thanks man! I'm always up to the challenge of drawing a character new to me but it can be a bit of pressure to live up to a fan's vision of what it should look like especially if they turn out not to like your version. Thankfully the guy I drew her for seemed to dig it. :phew:

I haul a damn Previews mag. with me...it has just about everyone current in there but it's heavy...so I tend to just leave them at the conventions so I don't have to fly home with them.....the Campos way of the Black Cat is just fine with anyone...cool job...but Death is perfect here....great mood..

Y'know that Previews idea is great! Beats running around the show trying to find ref plus Diamond is usually at the shows to some capacity and you can just score a catalog there with them.

I remember doing the small con circuit back in the early 90's and knowing exactly how each and every character looked. Now with my age and growing lack of interest in comics it's hard to keep up. I mean last time I looked Wolverine has like fifty different costumes, what's up with that?:lol:

Thanks for the kind words-no Texas this year but hopefully we can meet up somewhere else and hang out.
