Stormwatch P.H.D

Hey Folks,
Here are the Wildstorm sample Pages Ive talked about in my earlier post. The script is based on the first four pages of the second issue of "Stormwatch PHD" comic series.
I have never drawn any of these characters before, and have to say that I still dont know too much about them, but I have to say it was quite funny drawing these characters, especially "the walking ghost", the bald headed Guy.

Usually I tend to talk a lot about the stuff I draw, but in this case its not too much I can say. However, during the process I felt like that something improved in my art. I think in some cases the perspectives are more dynamic and less stiff. Ive been trying to create the Illusion of depth in the panels and I think it worked much better than it did in all the samples ive posted before.
I cannot tell wether this will change anything for me and make me become a "pro" now, if Wildstorm will show any interest in me as an artist or anything else. By the end of the day it was a good exercise, Ive enjoyed drawing it and I have some new stuff for my portfolio :)

So here we go, I hope you guys will enjoy these Pages, and if you like em, post a comment! Id appricciate that a lot :)

Now Ill let the art speak for it self

Punisher Pin Up

Hey Everybody,
long time no see. Lately ive been quite busy starting to work on my Diploma. Im working on a graphik novel about a kurdish hero from the 1830´s, and so far I have to say it is a lot of fun working on that. Theres a lot of research that I have to do for this project, and Im doing the writing on this book too. Ive never wrote any stories before (or atleast none that would tell such a long story), i think the fact that it bases on a true story is a very good way to start and at the same time it helps me to know where the story will lead too. My teacher who read the story really likes it so far, and Im thinking about maybe doing more stuff like this in the future.

On the other Hand I have to say, when it comes to superherobooks or "comic" stories, I still prefer working with other writers instead of writing them by myself. My biggest dream would be to work with Garth Ennis on a Punisher "MAX" storyline some day...yeah I know that is a big dream, and probably never is going to happen, but whenever I read Ennis´ stories I feel this rush of inspiration and the pressure to draw something. Ive read the "Punisher,the first step" and "Punisher, Barracuda" storylines and was so amazed how Ennis was able to capture the "real" Idea of the Punisher, who in my eyes should be completely taken out of the superhero universe and be made a complete realistic character. I hope some day, somehow Ill be able to get my fingers on the character...if I ever should break into the industry (btw. Ive recieved a sample script from a real cool Wildstorm Editor...lets see what happens when im done with it ;) )

However, here is a little Punisher pin up, the way I imagine him, the way I would draw him if Id be able to work on him. I hope you all enjoy :)

All the best wishes,
