Robin 3 phase by EssayBee
Robin 3 phase
Some time ago, my youngest son put on his Robin costume and Winter Soldier mask and asked me to "write him a picture." I snapped a photo of him posing and drew the pencils that day; for his birthday this year, I finished the pic and framed it for him. Here's the inspiration photo, the pencils, and the final product.

Something for Throw-Back Thursday . . . Here's the first color portrait I did after getting a nice set of colored pencils back in 1995. Ingrid Seynhaeve was the model.

Here's the 6th teaser for Dude in Distress. Here we get a peek at Femme Fantastic in her around-the-house, bumming clothes. This look will feature in the “Living With a Superhero” interludes that'll be sprinkled throughout the series.

Dude in Distress Teaser 5 Print/Poster size
Here's the giant-sized (and slightly restructured) fifth teaser for "Dude in Distress." This size will allow poster-sized prints here at DeviantArt.

If you prefer a smaller image (for less cash), I'll also be personally selling 11 x 17 prints probably for $3-4, plus S&H (signed if you like). Just drop me a note here or PM me at ComicFury with a contact e-mail address.

Here's the fifth teaser for "Dude in Distress." Just a shot of Femme Fantastic sitting on top of her ship during a sunset. I think I'm gonna have some prints of this made (11 x 17 in.) and probably sell them for $3-4, plus S&H. If anyone's interested, let me know.

I just noticed that I had old (and dead) links to the webcomic Fusion in the descriptions for a number of images. The URLs in the Star Wars parody ad were also outdated. I have corrected all of those links (and updated the parody ad to the latest version). For those wondering what the correct link should be and don't feel like checking in my gallery (or in previous journal entries), it's  fusion.thecomicseries.com/

For the past nearly 4 years, most of my drawing time has been spent working on Fusion, my original comic series (see link to my website). As a warning, if you don't like light-hearted (at least initially with this series, although things are getting more serious) superhero comics from a guy who loves bad puns, you might want to steer clear. If you can deal with such stuff, I hope you'll enjoy the series.

As you can tell from the pics I've posted, my art is more cartoony than comic-booky, with simple lines and a pseudo-cel-shading style of coloring. My biggest influences are Bruce Timm and early 90s Disney, with a dash of anime.

My favorite animated shows are pretty much anything DCAU, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Clone Wars (both Genndy Tartakovsky's shorts and the new CG series), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Vision of Escaflowne. Oban Star Racers also deserves mention. There are other shows that I like, but the ones listed really hooked me story-wise and character-wise. As far as animated movies go, I enjoyed pretty much every Disney film from Beauty and the Beast through Hunchback of Notre Dame(with the exception of Pocohontas); The Incredibles was great; and pretty much anything Miyazaki will get my money.

Enough of the boring stuff. I just hope anyone stopping by here is entertained by what they see.

Thanks for commenting, and glad you enjoy Fusion! There'll be lots more Fusion, as well as the upcoming Dude in Distress (which'll be in different universe from Fusion). If all goes well (i.e., I have the time), 2015 may also see another Fusion-related comic.
