ISCA 2022

So this year I finally decided to try out the big North American #caricature art convention called The International Society of Caricature Art, or ISCA for short. It was held at Orlando Florida, which is a hotspot For many artists in this particular industry. I went as a sponsor and competitor to show my support for the organization. It was meant as both a pursuit for education, research, and to get humbled by some of the greatest artists in the industry. Here I got to see so

D

This is my latest illustration of my original character and #pinup, D. She will be appearing prominently in my upcoming #sciencefiction #horror #thriller #ParaVice which is currently a work in progress. I used several references to create her pose and her facial features, but this is what she looks like in my head. Probably one of the most colorful and difficult designs I have done in a while with all of her #rockstar features. D is quite a boisterous character as you will co

Candy 🍭 2D profile art

Dilemma (a dark parody)

Author's note: Before we begin, let me tell you a little tale about how this story came to be. I am always searching for an opportunity to gain some kind of exposure to my work, and sometimes I get so excited about a potential prospect that I forget to cross reference the scammy internet clickbaits that flood my feed. I stumbled upon this add on Facebook for a literary website that was doing a prompt contest a couple weeks back. I clicked on it, with no real plans of particip

Lacuna Coil cartoon

I’m going to get to see one of my favorite European #rock bands this Thursday in #Harrisburg #Pennsylvania at the legendary HMAC Midtown Theater of the Arts and I just can’t wait! Have been listening to them since 2008, I’ll never forget the first time I heard their single Heaven’s a Lie, and ever since that day their music has been inspiring a lot of my #art and literature work. I am talking about the one and only #Italian #gothic #metal band #lacunacoil and to celebrate the

RockStar cartoon portrait

Drew a Digital #cartoon portrait of #berlin #metal #rock band #artist Elli Berlin of #nullpositiv she gots cool hair! Reminded me of my original character from my #horror series ParaVice, D. So I had to draw her. Here it is, Enjoy! Keep drawing!

Destiny

While sitting around at the Steel City Comic con this year I decided to bust my time drawing some fan art. One of my favorite #gamers /YouTube stars #destinyfomo became my subject of interest. I started with the outline first then went in to do the base color, and shadows and lighting. This was a new way of coloring for me but I dig the results so I’m probably going to stick with this method in the future. Enjoy! also, Merry Christmas fellow gamers! #ipad #art #cartoon #pinup

Slipknot caricature

Been listening to the rock band #slipknot since high school. One of the coolest moments in my music nerd days was when I found out that rapper Tech N9ne (who I have also been listening to for many years) was a metal head and loved Slipkno. and then he got to do a song with the legend Corey Taylor. since then i saw the band live on stage, and got to meet Corey taylor in life. It blew my mind. Last year I was asked to do a cartoon of the band and I struggled with the request b

Vamp- Sticker art

After doing a couple comicons and Horror-cons one of the most common requests I got from fans and patrons of the Morbid Arts is that I should draw the Iconic #Vampirella by Forrest J Ackerman, Trina Robbins, published by Warren Publishing. After doing some research I decided that they were all right. She is #Sexy Seductive, Killer, Cool, and has some spicy poses. All these elements I love. So here is my original illustration of her in my style. Stickers will be produced soon.

Let It Burn

Made a #Frozen #gameofthrones mash up turning Elsa into a pissed off Khalees. 2D digital illustration using my #ipad and sketchbook pro. #fantasy #art #cartoon enjoy!

Female Ash

Wanted to draw a cartoon version of Ash Williams from the Evil Dead horror series as a woman so I based my design on the likeness of actress Dana DeLorenzo who played Kelly in the Ash vs Evil Dead tv series. I had a great time making her into my stretchy body style that I think I picked up from watching Aeon Flux on late night MTV as a kid. ANYWAY, here is my character. #ashwilliams #evildead #cartoon #danadelorenzo #digitalart #art #horror On October 23 at the Brooklyn Horro

Groovy Halloween!

Just finished up my new model, Ash Williams from the Evil Dead/Army of Darkness series. One of my favorite #horror slasher/slapstick comedies. This one was a lot of fun as I got to throw in my love for cartooning in the mix. Here are a couple screenshots I took off my #zbrush dash. The piece took roughly a week to complete, all from scratch using only the Ash vs Evil Dead season 1, 2, and 3 dvd covers as a reference. #3dmodel #cartoon #3dprinting Fine detail resin print. Roug

Director Ortega

Original Character Reveal! FBI Director Ortega will soon make her first appearance in my #paravice #bassysbasilica #horror series. Veteran, political activist, immigrant, decorated officer of Neuterra. A strong-spirited icon in my fictional world representing law and justice. She is praised by the #LGBTQ community and #equalrights movement because of her crucial role in transforming the rules/requirements regarding promotion in the superior institutions of authority, which b

Madam Bassy

Monster Girl

#happyhalloween So this was my first stab at my Wacom Mobile Studio Pro device and knew at once that I love this machine. This #creature is one of the transformation stages I created for the #monsters in my #bassysbasilica #paravice project. I wanted her human form to look like a tattered, useless cloak as she takes her shape. It was inspired by the body of a scorpion. #horror #halloween #art #scary #digitalart #wacom #cartoon

Tarot Card Illustration (High Priestess)

This was my first multi media Tarot card illustration. It was hand drawn (traditionally) ink pen and paper, and then colored and edited on Adobe Photoshop. The model is a social media friend of mine alias: Haley Rising. Before this illustration I haven't touched photoshop in years. This reminded me how much I enjoy digital art and have since upgraded my approach significantly. More digital art will be coming in the future as it is now my preferred way to draw on my free time.
