Batman & Joker Commissions Finished

I was finally able to sit down and finish the Batman & Joker Commissions I started a few weeks ago, and here they are.

For these I used my Pigma ink pens to do the main inking of the characters, then I went over the whole thing with a really loose and rough ink wash to give it a really gritty feel. Finally once all that was dry (and after the paper was re flattened from water warping) I added color using Prismacolor markers.

Wedding Shoes



On January 1st, 2011 (1/1/11 should have waited for more ones on 11/11/11) a couple of my friends got hitched. The bride saw a pair of wedding shoes online that were customized by an artist in a very unique way. She sent me the pictures and asked me if it’s something I thought I could do. Not wanting to say no to a bride to be (I think that’s 7 years bad luck or something) and seeing this as an opportunity to not only give her a one of a kind wedding present, but to try something new and out of my comfort zone.


So I asked her to make me a list of her and the grooms favorite things and used those ideas to decorate them. After making a mess of the “practice pair” of shoes by trying various paint markers and such I ended up using Sharpies. I found them to feel the most natural for me and they also gave the shoes a consistent hand drawn look. After I was done I put on several coats of protective fixative spray. The photos were taken by their wedding photographer.

Diablo Dark

Devilishly Dark & Beautifully Crafted since 1666. Diablo Dark is the fictional beer that goes down smooth!

So this is my entry for last weeks Random Words Art Challuunge. The random words were DARK / BEAUTY. Not sure why, but instantly I got an image in my head of a hot devil chick with a dark beer.

This image is available in my Zazzle Store on a variety of products.

Voltron: United And Drawn

DannyDevine_VoltronVoltron: United And Drawn is here! I received my copies this week and I must say this book turned out great! I am really impressed with the quality that 5finity puts into their products. I have worked on several Sketch Card sets for them in the past, but this is the first time I was asked to create a fully finished piece of art to be published in a book.


The book can be purchase through Amazon.


“5Finity Productions, in association with Moonstone and World Events Productions, presents the first ever official art book based on the classic animated series VOLTRON: Defender of the Universe! An endearing blend of fantasy and mechanics, this legendary series/brand fused itself with social and pop-culture history. To many genre fans, VOLTRON was the original transforming robotic action series, and introduced an entire generation to the world of Japanese-style animation. A mix of official brand history, original artwork, fan memories, celebrity testimonials, and more, this book proudly celebrates VOLTRON's influence today - and beyond!”

Batman & Joker (Sketch)

Started working on a commission of Batman & The Joker this weekend. This is where I am at so far with them. I still have some tweaking to do before I move on to inks and color. Also, I would like to shout out a thank you to my buddy Cory for being such a good sport and posing for some reference pictures.
