just a warm-up. I'm practicing hand lettering as well. My balloons certainly need some work...

I miss the days of sort of 'goofy' villain.... :c

Like Mysterio or the Penguin, both unlikely to feature in any new Spiderman or Batman movies due to their comical appearances.... 

I love your style by the way! :D
Screams Mignola :)

I do love BPRD...

This is awesome, James. And I too miss the good ol' days of fun comics, with quirky bad guys, knock-down-drag-out fights, and story lines could be resolved in 3 or 4 issues. As opposed to the drawn-out plot lines, and overblown melodramatics of today. Sigh.

Ah, sorry, so many favorites! XD i love your work, especially the vemon pictures. they have a lot of movement, you can almost SEE the contortions... awesome work! Although as an avid Berserk fan.. i must love that picture too! you should color it if you have time! :)

you never have to apologize for favorites :)
As for the Berserk piece, at this point that things about 4 years old and I don't look at art from that period with anything but embarrassment, so I'd have to draw a new one, than color that :)

Thanks for taking such an interest!

Awesome! Especially luv your inking and lettering as well! Yeah, I remember those times.
Which is why I don't buy any Mainstream today. (unless I spy a gem once in a blue moon)
I 'hand lettered' 12 pages on my DA page. I think it looks best.

I don't care what this guy's MO is, I would buy at least one comic with him in it, just to see what kind of mess her gets involved in.

yea, i noticed that on King of Beasts. That made the story that much cooler. It can really steamroll a style when people just go in photoshop and plop those digital balloons in there. Not that it's all bad. Saves a butt-load of time!
