Secret Origins #6, featuring The Origin of Sinestro. Pencils by Igor Lima.
Again, it’s been a while. Some of the projects I’ve been working on can’t be shown yet, so that’s at least partial reason for the lack of posts. That, and I’ve just been busy. So I’ll go through and put up a few scans of some recent projects.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Been busy on a handful of projects. Some are out now (Wonder Woman: Future’s End, Secret Origins), and some are coming in the next year (Convergence).
So, just a quick post or two promoting the new works, and hopefully I can find some time to post some art from these books.
Felt like a bit of unwinding from spending the day inking, so I spent some time after lunch (and a bit after dinner) playing with Corel Painter. After picking up the Art of The Guardians of the Galaxy book, and the score to the film, I was in the mood to do Gamora. Not the movie version, but the classic version from the 70’s. Maybe I’ll do a portrait series of all the Guardians….
Here’s a small sample of inking I did over Rags Morales’ pencils for Wonder Woman: Future’s End #1. Interesting approach to this job… Rags started inking the job and was using watercolor to add grey values to the drawings (which will then be digitally colored) I followed his lead, and add the greytones as well. The job recalls the black and white magazines Marvel did in the 70’s and 80’s. Looking forward to seeing the printed book. It’s scheduled to ship in September.
Thundercats #8 cover (1987). Pencils by me (from layout by John Romita). Inks by Tom Palmer.
Why did Palmer sign the piece “J. Thomas”? Not really sure. When I met him (maybe after this cover was done), and introduced myself he mentioned something that he thought Marzan was an alias of Romita’s. I guess he got that idea from my working with John, and under his tutelage..??
Here’s a Black Widow sketch I did for a collector at MegaCon back in March.
I think I messed up the Russian spelling of my name. My Russian is oh so bad. I read it oh so slowly. Writing it is worse.
