“Hey, where the super women at?” Cryptozoic’s DC Women Of Legend Trading Cards Available 9/13/13 & New Sketchcards By Me!

I can now officially announce my involvement with the DC Comics Women Of Legend card set by Cryptozoic.


This past spring I got to draw Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Supergirl, Powergirl, and many more superpowered women in 50 sketch cards for my first ever DC set.


I also did 5 artist returns, which I’ll have for sale on my site here next month.


Each sketchcard was hand drawn and colored with Copic and Prismacolor markers and done in a cartoony style.


I start off with an official Cryptozoic blank sketch card.


First up is penciling the figure.


Then start shading with the markers.


Next is filling in color with more markers.


Finally I do the inking with disposable tech pens and sign it. Oh, and spray some fixative on the card to help protect it.


It was fun to work on different versions of some of my favorite characters- so many too choose from!


You can see all of my DC sketchcards here on my site in my sketchcard gallery.


This card set will be out in stores on September 13th.
