Jan. 4th’s hero is THE STEEL FIST! Look him up here- http://pdsh.wikia.com/wiki/Steel_Fist and here: http://www.internationalhero.co.uk/s/stelfist.htm Now I have to run and make pizza for 20- Wish me luck!
UPDATE! A quick note about this sketch. if you check out the links above you will see that Steel Fist had 2 costumes What I did was combine the various elements, redesigned the helmet and added detailing that I thought would he in line with previous versions- the boot and belt and collar- which match the existing left bracelet. I thought if he’s “the Steel Fist”, the costume needed more iron work motifs.
You can read a few Steel Fist stories at BCHAT’s My Opinion Doesn’t Matter Golden Age comics blog. GO GO GO!
Back again for the new year- hope you all didn’t miss me too much! I decided that since I was back to blogging regularly that I’d return to my “sketches every day” routine- with a new angle of course. I decided to take on the discipline of sketching a public domain superhero every day. I really love these golden and silver age heroes; too some they are more than a bit dated but I think they’re real gems. My first – ATOMAN!

We all love villains right? Can’t have superheroes without them! Here are some recent character sketches of mine;
God it’s been a while to be sure. Short story is- I’ve been sick with flare-up of a chronic illness, then serious fatigue and follow-up of a virus that has taken over the Gal-friend/and one of the kids! AAAAGHHHH! But its not H1N1, so can’t be all that bad. Back to working on webcomics and developing new characters as usual. I was in need of a new direction and so I decided to start coming up with SUPERVILLAINS! Love em or hate em or love to hate em, ya gotta have them. Here is TAURON the LASHER!
OUROBOROS and BEYOND!

Javier Hernandez is a class act and a creative guy. Everyone in indy comics knows that- but I’ve had the pleasure recently to get to know him better as a result of being accepted into his circle of DIY comickers. You would most likely know Jav from his EL MUERTO character; which was made into a film in 2007 and is now on DVD. I really like the character and the comic and I recommend that you buy that book and his other comic book ventures. Here it is- El Muerto fan art for you JAVIER! Hope you like.
EDIT: I am going to color it- I’ll post it in here when it’s finished, my amigos muertos!
