Emerald City Comic Con, March 1-4 Details

I will be attending Emerald City again this year.

The official ECCC site -



WHERE/WHEN

I will be seated in Artist's Alley Table L-4


I will be at the table most of the show but I will update later with a more exact schedule and at


@TerryDodsonArt

SIGNING

I will be signing books/comics/statues/etc at my table the whole show and for free for the first 10 items. Then $1 a signature after that. 
Witnessed Sigs are $5 each.

COMMISSION SKETCHES 

ARE

CLOSED


 SIZE

 9” x 12” 

 11” x 14" 

I will do a full figure or 3/4 figure depending on what works best for the composition on the 11" x 14",

and  likely it will be 3/4 or thigh up figure on the 9" x 12"

I do the sketches on 

Color Canson MiTeinte Pastel paper

with Red Col Erase Pencil, Copic Warm Grey Pens, Black Markers, and Prismacolor White Pencil or Pro White

IF you want your sketch in your SKETCHBOOK, just gauge the size to the 9 x 12 or 11 x 14. However, I won't be able to do many SKETCHBOOK commissions as I won't have the SKETCHBOOK until I'm at the Convention.

See below for sketch examples and visit my blog, Instagram, Deviant Art and Twitter for more examples.
I’m not taking Blank Cover Pre-Show requests, I will decide at the show if I’m going to be able to do any there.


 SUBJECT

A Single character and I decide if it needs a background but you are welcome to suggest.

Be clear as to what version of the character you want.

And you can list a top 3 of if you want to.


 YOUR NAME

As you will be picking this up in person from me at ECCC, I need this. To be fair, and for my sanity, and yours, I’m only taking requests from people actually attending ECCC.

-------NITTY GRITTY------- 

-To be fair, and for my sanity, and yours, I’m only taking requests from people actually attending ECCC.

-I will take the first 20 COMMISSIONS requested via email and then CLOSE the list. I will then pick the SUBJECT I want to draw. As I complete them, I will contact you to let you know your piece was chosen, it's done, and request a partial payment via Paypal ($100) to hold, and then remainder in CASH from you at the show at the time of pick up.

-Once I stop the list, I will announce it is CLOSED and then I will let the 25 know they are on the list. If you don’t hear within 24 hours of CLOSED then your request was not one of the first 20. I will continue picking sketches until the start of the show so everyone should know.

 -SO, not everyone will get a sketch and there will most likely be some confusion so read everything carefully and if you don’t hear from me with 24 hours of closing the list, you are NOT on the list of 20.

-If you do make the list of 20, you are NOT guaranteed a sketch, just that I’m choosing from those 20.

- It’s only when I email with the 2nd email and tell you your sketch is completed, request partial payment, then, you know, … it’s done :-)

I will do as many as possible!

QUESTIONS!

Please ask in the thread below so everyone can see - thanks!

GOOD LUCK!

Bombshells United #11 Cover Art Step by Step Part 1 Pencils

Here's a look at how we made the cover art for Bombshells United #11 - 

out now from DC Comics and Marguerite Bennett and Stephen Byrne.


PART 1

PENCILS


COVER SKETCH

The cover concept I sent into DC Comics and editor Kristy Quinn for approval. 

Roughs were drawn at 2" x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.


INITIAL PENCILS

Drawn in Light Blue on 12" x 18" Bristol Board 


I draw with Col Erase Light Blue Pencil and Staedtler HB Lead Pencil.



And then, the story takes place in Madrid, Spain and I actually took a bunch of pics of Madrid when I was there and I set the scene in my favorite area...


It was a blast to incorporate these amazing buildings into the background!


FINAL PENCILS


All ready for Rachel Dodson to ink...

Next time,
