Cover Redo: Thor #168 by Mark Hurst

So, I just finished reading a book about Jack Kirby so with that still fresh in my mind I decided to do a Kirby cover. I came across Thor #168 where he is chasing down Galactus, who stops him and begins telling his origin. I thought it was pretty interesting so I started to sketch only to find out that the design I was doing was similar to the continuation of the story in Thor #169. So enjoy of the variations I did with this (all have minor changes that you probably can't tell). Here are the covers for 168 &169.

Westerns - Dean Martin from Rio Bravo

 Dean Martin, takin it easy and singing "My Rifle, My Pony, and Me." I really love this song.

Monsters in the Artwork: The Great Wave off Kanagawa vs The Rancor by Mike McMahon

I pretty much rushed this, but you'll get the idea, but as soon as I saw "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" by Hokusai, I immediately saw the idea of a Rancor going up against it

Monsters in the artwork: "Godzilla The Starry Night," by Josh Purple

Fast, fun, and after having a great time at SpringCon, -I was inspired by Eric Schuster :) (the wiki of all things 'zilla!).
Reference from this Godzilla here;

So I had fun with this, and I got to watch Creature From The Black Lagoon again. So this is a painting I found I'm not sure who the artist is, which is bad on my part. Enjoy.

Monsters in the artwork: "Red Studio Green Monster" by Nathan Anderson

"Red Studio"  is basically my favorite painting every time I have to chose a painting for something I chose this painting -nate

Westerns: Firefly by Mike McMahon

When it comes to space westerns, in my opinion, Firefly is king. I thought it'd be fun to do a short story from one of my all time favorite shows. It's the first time I've ever written or drawn something of it and with any luck, I was able to get the spirit of the show and the characters.

The pages are very sketchy so that I could post 'em in time, but I think there's enough there for the story to make sense. Hopefully down the road I'll be able to ink it and put more detail into it and make it look better over all.

Westerns: the Wild West Was Here page

Great theme Kyle.  I LOVE westerns.  Since Kyle suggested Wyatt Earp or space western I figured I had to post a page from my book the Wild West Was Here, which is both about Wyatt Earp and space.  Cheating you say? Yes, this an old drawing.  However it does fit the criteria and as soon as I find the time I plan on coming back to draw the next book.
