Sketch Shots - Day 6: Mighty Mouse

Here is a quick sketch that I did of my version of an updated Mighty Mouse. I LOVE Mighty Mouse, and wish the cartoon would come back on. We will just have to wait for that I guess. I'm considering whether or not I should take this on Manga Studios, line it up and color it. I don't know yet. This particular sketch is not for sale at all because he's in my personal sketchbook. But who knows what may be the case for him in the future! Either way, ENJOY!!!

Sketch Shots - Day 4: Darkseid

Did this one up really fast today. I wanted to always draw Darkseid as he is definitely one of my favorite DC villains, but never got around to it. These sketchshots was one of those perfect opportunities to do this, so here he is for your viewing pleasure!

Sketch Shots - Day 3: Power Girl

This is todays new sketchshot of Power Girl. I have been inspired by the art of Darwyn Cooke for the past few days as well as some others, so there is a bit of influence there. This is actually a piece that's in my personal sketchbook, so there is no separate physical sketch. So no sale here. But please enjoy, and let me know how you guys feel!

Life - The Ultimate Hater #1: New Hire

This is a daily webcomic strip that I am playing with in hopes to find out if I can even do something like this on the regular. These strips are all over exaggerated autobiographical incidents that have happened in my life. It's a story where it seems that Life itself is the ultimate hater, looking to bring you down in all aspects of it. Hope you guys enjoy it! Love to get some feedback and to know what you guys think!

Cartoon Style Artwork - Flash & Wonder Woman

I have began doing some artwork in a cartoony style that I am trying to learn and perfect. In an effort to step up my art game, I'm doing different styles in an effort to create a personal art arsenal of skills that I can bring up whenever necessary. This style was inspired by some of my favorite artists. Bill Presing, and Shane Glines. Also the inking work of Marcio Takara is very inspirational as well, and has prodded me to take on learning the brush inking style. Here are two art pieces I did of two heroes from the DC universe. I plan on doing more, and more big pieces. These right now are miniature greeting cards that are fun to do. Let me know what you guys think.

Introducing... The Sketches of Ian Walker - 2010 Sketchbook

This is the newest sketchbook that I am coming out with this year. Being that I am taking my artwork seriously more now, and since I have about 8 months to get my name out there a bit before WonderCon 2011, I felt that it was time to create a brand new sketch book. 

This sketchbook is called: Introducing... The Sketches of Ian Walker. It is going to be a 24 pg sketchbook and will be fulled with black and white sketches, pinups, and other line art most that have not been seen. But just a note for you all that this book will contain mostly ROUGH UNFINISHED sketches. The finished works within, or inked works will be few, but they will be there. My purpose is to create a SKETCHBOOK. Not finished pinup sketches. 

The last page of the book will be left blank for sketches in the back for a free one of a kind sketch for those that purchase one from me. The cover will be a glossy card stock, and it will cost $10 + $2 U.S/$5 overseas. If you would like to get a special B&W sketch card with your purchase of whatever character you choose, add an additional $10 to the total. So this is a deal you are getting. A sketchbook AND a B&W Inked Custom sketch card for $20! What more could you want!? 

This sketchbook will be available for purchase solely through mail order either here by note, or through my blog. This will be limited to only 100 copies. The book will be available for purchase on October 1, 2010. 

HOWEVER!!! Right now, 15 copies are available NOW for Pre-Order. The limit is one per person. ALL PRE-ORDERS WILL GET THE SKETCH CARD INCLUDED FREE!!! This applies ONLY if you pre-order before Oct 1. This is a thank you for those that are supporting me. If you are interested, send a note to me with what characters you want, one in the book and the other for the sketch card. If you get it in time, you will receive the PayPal address to send it to. 

Thanks again everyone, and I hope to hear from you guys soon!!!
