Ebay with all it's flaws. Added some changes to the painting. Put Batman's feet behind a random curb plane. Changed the break of the Monkey Wrench (pipe wrench actually) arm so the anatomy was closer to right. Couple of more dabs here and there.

Okay Gang, this is the last message I will post pestering you for art for the TAG Sampler art book. I’ve started putting the book together, but there’s still a bit of time to submit art for the book. I’ve got a lot of great work in the book so far, but there’s still room for a bit more.
As a reminder, any piece of art will do. It doesn’t need to be something you made specifically for the book or even something you did at TAG. There’s a lot of really terrific work submitted so far, and a cfew of actual comic stories to boot.
If you’ve already sent me something for the book-Thanks! It’s a great, diverse collection of stuff. If you haven’t contributed yet, please do! I would love to include your work.
The deadline is January 28th! After that I will submit it to Lulu. Once the book is available there I will post a message letting you know where to go to get your copy(s). Thanks again!
Update: I've added color and whatnot to the TAG Sampler cover... what do you folks think?
Beautiful! But Raymond's complexion is more of a warm, pasty white.

I had a ground floor opportunity with this company. I assume they are still going but as XSeed. Sounds like the main guy suffering semi-freeze out was Brian, who started the whole idea. Lots of me reading between the lines. I don't really know anything. The art is some residual crap I did for them that is still haunting the machine in Google images.THQ is defunct. I assume that affects my old company, Heavy Iron. They primarily got their funding from THQ.
Submitted for your approval. Always takes longer than I expect. Inspiration from those Golden Age covers where the villain plays with the hero/heroes as if they're toys in a sort-of fantasy tableau (I'm thinking old Batman and Robins). Dunno if the translation to our TAG ouevre is satisfying for you guys. Please comment!
If you guys like it, it's all ready for Rick to color and font-ify.
(UPDATED: Rick thought the last word balloon was overselling it...and he hates bad words like #@*%.)

Rented it on Redbox a week ago and was so impressed I bought it. Makes up for the Stallone mess (Cheesy and fun as it was) but this was like watching Robocop and getting that same rush I did with that in 87. It's violent, brutal and very stylish. Worth the $$$$. I want a sequel.

Fellow TAGsters, what do you think of this as a 6 page Ron Thompson layout? Ron was kind enough to leave one of his sketchbooks in my care, and I've scanned these and tried to lay them out in a compelling way. I'm still in the process of cleaning up the scans (lots of smudgey detritus clouding the images). But what do you think? Would 6 pages be overkill? Which pages do you like the best?
(and the yellow/red matting is just the comic page guide.)
Talk to me, you all!

Polar Bowler 1st Frame, our first game out of WildTangent Studios, is now live for download from iTunes! I'm pretty happy with the result... the game looks good and plays well. Go download it onto your iOS devise and have some fun!

But hey--perspective! And tonal coloring! I feel very proud of myself.
Y'know, I don't really know what possessed me to do this story, other than it makes me laugh.
And of course, a love of all things ELLIS.

Sketched up the same way you'd use a ballpoint pen. I need to get a lot closer to illustrator. I understand a lot of its vector goodness, but I'm still novice level.
