Here you can see me feeling out the elements, the feathers, the pose and the ravens. Although you will see in this initial drawing, I had a third raven in the foreground. I thought that the raven took away from the overall image so I decided to nix it. In it's place, I will eventually add a cape. The raven made the image a bit claustrophobic. I think I should have left more room to the sides as well. In my head I was thinking .2 inches border for the final card, but forgot to scale it up since this was done on a 11x 17 page. oops. We fudged some stuff in the end to make it work hehe.
I'm a freelance artist working primarily in the comic book field at the moment. Many of my published work has been through Marvel comics, including such titles as Runaways, Xmen, and Mighty Avengers. I've also worked for DC Comics including Batman Superman as well as Batman Unhinged. I have also done work for the sketchcard industry including various Marvel sets for Rittenhouse as well as Bettie Page sets for Versicolor productions
