Babes and Martians!

Hey gang,

I've been working on this on and off. This was inspired by Dean
Yeagle and Frank Cho--mainly Cho. I think I found my calling with the
whole Monsters and Babes shtick. I always loved that kind of stuff.
Cave Woman, Shanna The She-Devil, you name it. I'd love to do an entire art book on this.

This piece was
also brought on by something that's been on my mind lately. I was
recently in talks for a commission and the potential client warned me
that it had a lot sexual content. At first, I went with it, but as he
went on, the project was going a bit too far for my taste, so I
declined. It sucks because I hate turning down money, but there was definitely some hardcore shit that I couldn't fathom drawing. So, I felt the need to draw something fun. This is somewhat
sexual, but it's all in good fun. I can turn it up a notch or two, but
my new rule is that I won't do anything Adam Hughes or Frank Cho
wouldn't do. As long as it's fun, I'm in.

Rape scenes and bondage are a no-no for me. I can do whips and chains, but as soon as it crosses over the line of fun and into the realm of...I don't know... You get the idea.

I really messed up
the inks, but thank God for Photoshop. It turned a nightmare into a
happy ending...sort of. It could be a lot better. The pens I brought
Blick were crappy. Stay away from Itoya's Finepoint System. Any
recommendations for inks will greatly be appreciated.
