Visitation by soapdish Visitation by soapdish
Long time, no post...

Anyway, I haven't done a serious drawing in loooong when my art director at work asked if anyone was interested in doing an illustration of the characters in his comic The Black Coat, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity.

The Black Coat is a colonial hero character, who battles the British to protect his fellow Americans. I really like the Revolutionary War setting, so this was very enjoyable to read (and draw).

The two characters portrayed are The Black Coat and the girl, Robin, who lost her mom to a serial killer in the first volume.

Note: The Black Coat and Robin belong to their respective owners. They are not my characters.

I am really happy to see a drawing like this from you. Great "serious" work, as you say-- the light and dark contrast is very well-balanced and the figures are nice, too.

Hope you are still around, stay safe.

Take care!

Wow, how lovely! The depth of the background gives the picture an epic feel, and the characters are nicely rendered. One of my favorite of your pieces yet! =D

It's good to see more art from you again. How's life after SCAD?

Thanks! That really means a lot to me. :hug:

Life after college is going good. Been working at a video game company for about a year now, animating stuffs...currently I'm on vacation tho lol. I'm typing from the Philippines, visiting family. I started out in Japan visiting my best friend, and then here I am now a few countries lower. ^^;

How about you? How goes summer? What's new?

Thanks. Yeah it's been extremely hectic at work, but now that crunch has died down we can now relax again. I'm actually headed for a 3 week vacation to Asia starting tomorrow I'm pretty stoked.

Oooo. Good luck with that. I know putting together a portfolio can be stressful so good luck. :heart:

I use [link] for my site. They're really cheap for the amount of space they give.

Unfortunately, no. I first went to Japan to visit a friend, and now I'm in the Philippines visiting relatives.
