Illustration Friday: Super Hero

The theme for this week's Illustration Friday was Super Hero. You'd think this would've been easy for me, because I am a huge comic book geek. Quite the contrary. With so many cool superheroes to choose from, where do I start? I considered drawing Hiro from the new NBC show Heroes, but I decided instead to draw the main character from my favorite TV show of all time. That's right, baby. It's Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I was hoping to ink and color it before I posted it, but I ran out of time. Oh, well. Here she is in all her pencilly goodness.

Yeah, I know. She doesn't really look like Sarah Michelle Gellar. Actually, the more I look at her, I think she sorta looks like Debbie Gibson. Hmm... That gives me an idea for a TV show...

Illustration Friday: '80s

This week's Illustration Friday theme was '80s.

Ah, yes. The final scene of The Karate Kid. Young Daniel--to the dismay of Cobra Commander--defeats the evil ninja, Storm Shadow, while Mr. Miyagi and Optimus Prime cheer him on. If you don't remember this part, I recommend watching the director's cut of the film. This movie taught me a valuable lesson: Anything is possible if you work hard, and your two best friends are an old Okinawan guy and a giant robot that can transform into an 18-wheeler. Precious memories.
