Moon Knight Rises!

Moon Knight design color & line

I’ve been meaning to do a Moon Knight print for ages, and I finally had to take the time to at least work out how I was going to draw my version of the character.

My fandom for the character goes back to the run of artist Bill Sienkiewicz, so I wanted to bring some of that sleekness to my take, and I like the bodysuit under the cape to be a contrasting smokey, dark silver, rather than all white. I do like the more ragged, tattered look some artists have more recently given the character, but that’s not what I wanted to do this time around. Much like Batman, I don’t think there’s only one correct way to draw Moon Knight, so the purpose of this piece was to work out which way I wanted to depict the character for my upcoming pin-up.

You can see in the color version on the left how I intend to treat the character. He might be a little more textured in the final piece, but here I just wanted to be clear on the design so I kept it simple. I promise that the final Moon Knight print will be a little more action-oriented than this static pose, but I’ve gotten such a strong response every time I’ve mentioned my interest in Moon Knight recently I wanted to share this design and let people know that a pin-up/print was in the works!

On the right you can see the original line art, which I decided to draw on nice paper and make available in an auction on eBay, so check out the auction if you’re interested.

I’m also still accepting orders for original commissions. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.

Another commission: Captain America

I just finished another commission and to share it. I may make a print out of this one when I can find the time to color it. I would probably title it something heroic like “Leading the Charge” as opposed to something more snarky like “I’d be dead if I didn’t have this indestructible shield, but you guys follow me anyway!” Eh, maybe not.

I’m still accepting commissions online for sketches and illustrations. This above Captain America piece is a full 11″x17″ illustration commission, drawn in ink on bristol art paper. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.

Now accepting online art commissions!

For a limited period of time I will be accepting commissions online for original character sketches and illustrations. This will be on a first-come, first-served basis and I can only fit in so many during a gap in my schedule, so get your orders in now if you are interested!

The commissions I do mainly fall into three categories: Character Sketches, Full Illustrations and Cover Recreations.

Character Sketches

I draw these on 9″x12″ bristol art paper in ink, featuring the character(s) of your choice. If you want it drawn in the style of a specific show, want the character(s) to be shown in a specific pose or action, or want the character in a specific version of their costume, please specify when commissioning your drawing. I’m charging $60 for the first character and $40 for each additional character. Some examples of these sketches from recent conventions are below. The images were captured with a smartphone under convention lighting, so forgive the photo quality!

Full Illustrations

These are drawn on 11″x17″ bristol art paper and are the equivalent of a comic book cover or full-page illustration. These can feature more characters and will include a fully rendered background as the illustration requires. The charge for a full illustration is $300 for up to 6 characters. Some recent comic book art that exemplifies the kind of illustrations I’m talking about are below.

Cover Recreations

I will do recreations of my own covers, or will recreate an existing cover in my own style. Any recreations will include an acknowledgement to the original piece with the signature. Like my original Full Illustrations, these are drawn on 11″x17″ bristol art paper and I charge $300. Let me know what cover you’d like recreated, and any twists you’d like made (such as having the cover re-drawn in an animation style or with characters swapped out for different ones).
