Here's some more from the talented Nate, aka Snareser. Check out his page at deviantArt: http://snareser.deviantart.com/He's got a sketchbook for sale! It's awesome and wonder-full!
I love Nate's work. The top drawing is of Carl, from Friends Of Tyler. It was a full-size sketch.
Next, we get into some sketch cards. In the batch of 4, they are L'Aigle Vert (top left), Animal (top right), Unnyit (bottom left), and Yugere (bottom right). Now, Animal doesn't belong to me. He comes from Tippy Teen, and old Archie Comics clone from the 1960's, published by the same people who brought you the Thunder Agents!
The next two cards are: Gene (left) and Clyde Didit (right). Gene is another Friends Of Tyler character. Clyde appeared in Josie in the late 1960's, just before the strip became Josie & The Pussycats. He's another fave, and I have tons of fan art of him! :) I'll give the low down on who the various characters are later... just wanted to share some art!
Meet the Friends Of Tyler. I created these characters a while back... Tyler, Carl, and Natalie were created back in the 1990's, when I was doing a strip for a college newspaper and local gay newspaper. Tyler is gay - the big hairy guy. Carl and Natalie are his best friends. They are also cousins. The three of them grew up in the same neighborhood, and have been best friends since they were young. They are all college freshmen. There are a couple other characters in the cast, but these are the three featured here.
The top strip was done when I was trying to do a weekly web-strip with them. Weekly strips are difficult! I've actually had a difficult time getting their story started. I've gotten a few strips done tho, and now have ideas set for stories. The second strip appeared in the Prism Guide, for 2010 I believe. I was thrilled to be included, and drew this strip to feature both the FOT characters, and a couple of my super-heroes.
I have lots of "beefcake" art on the Friends Of Tyler characters, and will be sharing that here... as well as more Super Galaxy Femmes and other characters...
I'm sure that most of you know I draw up those funny little trading sized cards of original art that are often referred to as Sketch Cards or ACEO's. Now, these cards are of three of my original heroes: Atlas Parker, Mr. Amazing, and The Grey Warrior.
Here it is folks... the very first Super Galaxy Femmes web-strip, perpetrated by me! A big thanks to pal Christian for the posing joke!
The SGF existed before. I had been self-publishing little photo-copied fanzine comics. Maybe 12 people total saw them. Maybe. Anyway, their name there was less than flattering, and I decided they needed a bit of a revamp, tho I wanted to keep them funny!
Look for more SGF web-strips, both old and new, to appear!
Meet government agent, Albert Christopher. Albert is a fearless agent, battling many of the troubles that have cropped up since Yzida left. He most notable has been attempting to topple the organization that Ruby Riot has been building. After several encounters with Yugere, Albert was assigned as liason to the Adventure Squad. Now that his duty is a little less official, Albert will "loosen up" and let his true style show thru.
This excellent drawing was done by Nate Stockman of Ireland. It was done on the back of his awesome sketchbook, just for me! :) Check out more of his great work at: http://snareser.deviantart.com Pick up a sketchbook while you're there. It'll be worth it! :) You will see more of Nate's great art on my heroes before too much longer... he's done several pin-ups and sketch cards for me.
Well folks, this is a quickie colour view of new character, Serenity Star. He is one of the heroes of an alternate world that my main group, the Adventure Squad, will be meeting up with soon.
With my sketchbook having been published (check it out at: http://www.indyplanet.com/index.php?id=4995), I have been trying to decide what to do for the second book... I don't have enough Super Galaxy Femmes for a full book, and Adventure Squad is still in the works. A while back, I had planned a "beefcake" book... it would have some preview stories and lots of pin-ups of hunky heroes, and some sexy heroines as well. I might be bringing this idea back, pin-ups and all! Keep your eyes open, and feel free to weigh in with your ideas.
I will try to become better at this blogging thing. I will post information and pictures about various characters, and try to link things up with my art card and photography blogs.
