Benjamin von Eckartsberg said...

Man, these are beautiful!!!
I banished my copic markers some years ago, but seeing your sketches makes me rethink.
I really dig your beautiful line and the subtle face expressions!

Urban Barbarian said...

MARCO: Aw shucks! Thanks man!

MIKE: Loki is a sinister bastid!

TOM: Please! You've taken that bar and bashed in everyone's skull with it! You rule!

ACHDE': Much respect back! Your art is incredible!

ED: Each one took about 10 or 12 minutes. They're quite small.

BEN: Thanks! I was really going for some mood with these.

RORY: I used to only use markers when I started. I haven't touched them for years. It was a blast!

SPUNDMAN: Loki reminds me of the character on your blog!

BRIAN: Thanks much!

Odon said...

Wow! Those kick @$$. Seriously, your experience is showing. Better lower the bar a bit or you'll always be expected to produce like that (and you're gonna make it tough on the other artists).

Urban Barbarian said...

ODON: Thanks! After seeing Dave Johnson's cards I wanted to step it up a bit. Mine still don't compare! Oh well, back to the drawing board -literally!

John Rauch said...

Great stuff! Are you working on a book as well? I'd love to work with you some time.

Harper said...

Dude, these are the sweetness.
Especially the Loki and Cap and...

Matt said...

Ok, how do I learn to use the Copics like that?? The THOR piece is my favorite. War, indeed.

Urban Barbarian said...

JOHN: Thanks! I'm doing some test work for Marvel very soon. Depending on when I get a book over there I would be thrilled to work with you. Very impressive coloring!

Urban Barbarian said...

HARPER: Thanks! I gots a thing for the barbarian/Norse stuff it would seem! I know you're a barbarian deep down too!

MATT: I dunno, those Copics make it look easy! They're very watercolory which makes for some nice transitions, etc. You should pick up a small set. They're great for comps.

George kaprielian said...

I got here, late, and everything has been said alraedy, so...sup?

Sweet!

gdeo said...

william wray said...

great, but what are you being paid?

Urban Barbarian said...

GEORGE: Loki is a conniving fellow indeed!

COMIKXGUY: Frank is the Loki of comics! Except one this plane, he is never defeated! I appreciate the BWS reference too! Ha! Also, I've worked it out so that you can type in www.urbanbarbarian.com and you'll automatically be directed to my blog. So thanks for finding that for me but I think I'll stick with this since I'm already linked to other blogs with the present web address. I'll have to draw you a sketch at the SDCC! Thanks!

SEDYAS: No, you're the man!

FABIO/TEVIK/BENTON/GDEO: Thanks! Thanks! Thanks and thanks!

BILL: Actually, I get a nice rate for these. They took about 10-12 minutes a piece. Come to think about it - I wish I could do these for a living!

Hey Dan, I just bought a box of the Masterpiece cards from the Toronto FanExpo and guess who's card I found? One of your wolverines. It's a profile sketch, looks great! Thanks for doing these.
