Dave Johnson rules!

Dave Johnson is awesome. I can't afford to buy all the covers he does so I grabbed what I could. The 2 big books are volume 1 and 2 of the Drink and Draw Social Club that also includes art from Jeff Johnson and Dan Panosian. Dave showed up at this years Fan Expo so I got me some SKETCHES!!!  

 Hmmm, that second one looks a lot like me except I would never wear a hat like that. Love it.

These convention sketchbooks already had sketches in them. I bought them from his website (which doesn't exist anymore)

I got a bunch his comics bound together and luckily Dave wasn't afraid of my sweaty nervousness and agreed to draw on the cover for me. Sooo friggin' sweet.

Dave Johnson... a man and a god.

Dragon Booster: creation of Phistus part 1

There was an interesting scene in one the first few episodes I worked on that featured Phistus. It was a scene with a bunch of groups/gangs meeting and a lot of the costume designs were just made up for that scene. The different gangs had their colors and logos figured out just not the 'look' of their outfits etc. I'm pretty sure there's an early Reepyr in there. I remember painting a few of the characters in that scene as 'held cels' and I think some might have been re-textured 3D characters. Okay, it wasn't all that interesting but that's all I got....

Dragon Booster: Dragon City's Security forces

Memory fails me again... I really should rewatch the series but anywho I think this was the first pass at the Dragon City security forces

Here it is reworked looking more police-ish paired with the police dragon

You can't have a police force without a captain... Captain Faer! I don't have the color version, just the cleaned up pencil work. 

So what is that thing on the dragons back? Here's a quick sketch to explain as I no longer have the original art. It was designed to hold a prisoner! Sadly it was never used in that way in the series.

Dragon Booster concept art... Abandonn and Tyranis Pax!!!

I had a vision for Abandonn that was luckily well received by the show creators so I didn't have to do a bunch of different versions.

Another Dragon I liked designing was Tyranis Pax. I didn't get to do the final cleaned up art, that was done by the awesome EdisonYan ( http://www.edisonyan.com/ )

Kevin's input turned an 'ok' design into an awesome design.

DragonBooster.... the evolution of WULPH!

I found a ton of old stuff from DragonBooster! Here's the first of many posts. You will also be able to see my crappy line quality on all of these.

Sadly no Ferryt... for the one person who asked. I think it was just the one drawing.

Last pic is a design sketch of his dragon. He didn't evolve into a dragon

Donpachi Arcade Commission

For the 3 ships and the powers ups I was working off small low res images so I had to do a lot of designing. The last pic is the only reference pic I had for the Bee ship which was great because I got to design it from scratch.
