Superman

Superman is one of my favourites. I'm surprised I don't draw him more. I saw Justice League, it was fun. Plenty to enjoy and plenty to work on for the next one.

Supergirl

So I woke up this morning and the seriously talented Kevin Wada had done some Supergirl Costume Exploration sketches and colour work. https://twitter.com/kevinwada They set the internet on fire.
Everyone had a pass at his work and I was no different.
Here is my take on one of his designs. (I am trying to get better at drawing the female anatomy. This didn't turn out too bad) How bad ass is that jacket!?

Black Panther

Man that Black Panther trailer is amazing. It gives away some stuff that would have been cool to see unfold in the cinema but otherwise it was great. I can't wait to see this film. I never drew BP before so here is a little art to show my appreciation for the film.

Inktober

I never take part in #Inktober, yet always say I should. The reality is I won't. Here is my attempt at an #Inktober post while still getting in my weekly Spider-Man page.
You can find those here  http://colmgriffin.blogspot.ie/p/weekly-spider.html

Commission

I haven't done a traditional piece in awhile and wanted to give it a blast for a little contest I was having over on Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/artofcolmgriffin/

I love DC's Blue Beetle as a character and a design so I put together this little piece.
Here are the stages I worked on.

Convention Artist

I got my convention banner yesterday. Which means....... I will be doing conventions for the rest of the year and next year. So if you see this at any cons, come say hi, get some cool art and comics. 

More details on the shows I'm attending will be announced closer to the time. 
Hit me up if you need some work done.

Thanks

Carlow

Carlow GAA has had a great run in the championship this year. Better than we have in a long long time. The whole county got behind them and it was great to see. I have a few friends on the team so I did a little painting for them.
Well done lads we look forward to next year. #CarlowRising #CarlowGAA #GAA #Carlow

Issue 4 Cover

So at the moment I am working on the colour for issue 4 of my creator owned book. Only 2 issues left. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. With this cover I wanted to do something special, I have a comic book I got from my dad in April 1989. It's actually the oldest thing I own. I remember the day he got it for me. With my book, I wanted to pay homage to the 1989's cover and my old man. The cover ties in great with the story from my own issue.
Here is a little side by side.


Issue 4 Cover
