COPICS: Doc Doom

I was watching some MVC3 matches earlier and Doom is so badass in that game (Foot Dive!). I like to use characters I’ve never drawn before when I do these Copic stuff so Doom it was.

This is probably my best one yet and it was a good warm up as I head on to other work.

If you’re going to LSCC next week and want one of these don’t hesitate to drop me a line so I can have it ready for you at the con. It’s 40 pounds a pop.

Below is a Harley Quinn that I don’t think I’ve posted here yet.

    Piccolo – 52

    DBZ is huge for me so when this was suggested a few weeks back I wanted to jump on it immediately. Alas, I have a ton of other stuff I’m working on but I decided to take a break for dive into this piece. Tried to be as faithful as possibly to Toriyama’s character design.

    Also, is you don’t think Piccolo is the best character in DBZ, I’m ready to fight you outside.

    Here’s the palette challenge completion list in case you have some juicy suggestions.

    Props to FallenZephyr for his palette challenge once again.

      I’ve probably mentioned this before but yes, I’ll be at LSCC this year again. I had a blast last year so I’m very much looking forward to my time there.

      I’ll be in the Artist Alley at A124 and I’ll be having the following prints for sale:

      flash-family mario-vs-luigi Supreme-Guardians-v.3

      I’ll also be having the remaining stock from last year of the following prints:

      Cartel-Manga-XIX Psylocke-and-Storm Batgirl-Redesign

      The new prints are printed on higher quality paper stock. Prints will be sold at the low, low price of £3 individually or 2 for £5. If you want a print other than the ones listed here, don’t hesitate to leave a comment here or send me an e-mail to svonbuchwald (at) gmail (dot) com, I’ll gladly print a copy just for you and for the same price.

      Much like last year, I’ll also be doing Copic marker commissions on A4 bristol. I have warm and cool copics now so expect cooler stuff! I don’t remember what I charged for these last year so if you’re reading this and got a commission from me last year AND happen to recall how it cost you, let me know as I’d prefer to keep the same prices.

      That’s it. Look forward to seeing you there!

        Flash Family

        So Wally West is my Flash.

        I started reading Flash with Waid’s stuff and then moved to Johns and those two runs, along with JLU, cemented The Flash, and Wally in particular, as my favorite superhero out there. I just love the character, his rogues and the growth he exhibited throughout the years and I was really excited with the idea of the Jai and Iris and this family, not just in name but an actual family, of speedsters running around. Needless to say, I was super bummed when all of that was done away with, first with Barry’s return which basically benched Wally (and I love Barry as much as the next guy but Wally is my man) and then with Wally basically being erased from continuity later on. The twins had so much potential and was such a natural progression to Wally’s growth and they got Mark Waid to write it no less! Alas, all of it was shelved and it just kills me to think of what could have been.

        This is a love letter to that wasted potential. It’s not The Flash drawing I dream of doing (the one is my head plays with distortion and perspective to really portray super speed whereas this one is more straightforward) but it’s definitely something I needed to draw.

        It’s also a nice way to gauge the progress I’ve made art wise compared to my last Flash piece (which I did waaaay back in 2010).

        I’ll be selling this piece at London Super Comic Con next month so be on the lookout!

          Sketchbook Update – Runny Nose Edition

          I got this really annoying cold and it’s making it hard to draw. You definitely don’t want snot all over your tablet.

          Anyway, I’m working on my 3rd Capcom Fighting Tribute piece. It’s not coming along as smoothly as the previous two but I might as well go the extra mile and get that final piece in. You never know, it might be the one that catches their eye.

          Full set of scans for this sketchbook here.

            Clerks – 47

            Kevin Smith movies are extremely hit or miss but Clerks is definitely in the former category as far as I’m concerned.

            This was one of the earliest suggestions. I put it in the backburner and, since I lacked film characters here, I went for it. This piece also underscores how terrible I am at caricatures.

            This piece completes another row in the compilation (which I’ll be updating shortly) so I’ll be taking a break from these for a bit as I move on to other stuff.

            Here’s the palette challenge completion list in case you have some juicy suggestions.

              Ryuko Matoi – 51

              Started watching this show, about 4 episodes in. Really enjoying actually. It’s a lot of fun but man, there’s some mindless fan service in it and I don’t know what to make of it. The constant upshots and boob shots of early high school girls oftentimes pull me out of the whole thing.

              This is my own pick. :)

                Princess Peach – 38

                This lady needs no introduction. Used her tennis outfit because I hate that wimpy dress.

                Why the broken heart?

                Maybe she got tired of being in a relationship where she was never considered equal. Maybe she’s ready to set out on her own. Or maybe I just needed something to add to that blank spot. Who knows?!

                  Max – 9

                  Max from Dark Cloud 2, a game I’ve never played but not for lack of interest. Love those Level-5 guys.

                  This was a tough one. I actually started it a few weeks back but put it on hold as it wasn’t turning out as I would’ve liked. I finished my second (!) submission to the Capcom Tribute book earlier today so I decided to dive into it again and it fared much better. I was still making changes to the color of the line art and certain shades up to the last minute though.

                  Will probably try to post a couple of more things today before I prep for my 3rd and final Tribute submission piece. I’m pretty proud of them so, win or lose, I’m looking forward to sharing it with you guys/gals.
