Cheetahguy R3 by TRDLcomics
Cheetahguy R3
My 10-year old nephew-in-law is a kid that i've been sort of encouraging as far as art goes and he took an interest in comics last year so I've been plying him with art books and supplies and such and we talk about and practice drawing when we do family gatherings. It's one of the things that has connected with him over the years, along with building custom lego creations when he was younger. Anyway, he asked me to design a cheetah warrior with an eyepatch, bandana, bandoliers, laser gun, sword... I made the bandolier hold energy modules instead of bullets. This was my pencil draft. He loved it. I'll try to get it finished up later this year.

Trdl0603 Harleyz by TRDLcomics
Trdl0603 Harleyz
TRDL 2006 Series No. 03 - Harley Quinn

From the archives...
This was done for the 2006 R3 Challenging Art Challenge Jam, the subject being Harley Quinn.
I told you I was working on these jams, even though I hadn't yet had time to finish them before all the nuttiness got nutty. Anyway, I really like the strong design of this character, though cared less for the madcap persona. I like her better, once cautiously integrated into mainstream comics, with the sad, mad clown persona better. There's something very intriguing about her background. Definitely another winner to jump over from the animation side of things.

Trdl0602 Sandmanz by TRDLcomics
Trdl0602 Sandmanz
[b]TRDL 2006 Series, No. 02 - Spider-Man vs. Sandman[/b]

Updating some of the older work, archiving the rest. This one was Spider-Man in his black costume (not Venom) vs. classic Sandman, done speculatively in advance of Spider-Man 3 being released in theaters.

Artist | Professional | Design & Interfaces
United States
I am a designer overall, architect by profession and comic illustrator and concept artist through my own imprint, Third Rail Design Lab. I publish a comic through TRDL that is free to view, and over a pretty extensive library of original characters which include powers and origins, etc as well as a generic RPG stat system for conversion to any game, which are available online and in trade paperback form. I also do commission art and design work for collectors and commercial applications. Lastly, I host a weekly art jam that can be found here: :icontrdl-r3-weeklyjam:
