Batman on a gargoyle by ebas
Batman on a gargoyle
this was a challenge,i had the end result in my mind before i even touched pencil to paper, but it didnt turn out quite like i wanted. in many ways it turned out better. i was asked to draw him on a gargoyle and ive never done that in color before so i wasnt sure how it would turn out. i think i inked too many lines on the stone and wish i left most of it empty so i could do the effect with the color instead. but thats just me. 

super heroes is my 1st love before drawing asses believe it or not. i love drawing muscles, action poses and group shots of the xmen and such, and being able to add eye candy to it all. like in this one with the cape, rain and his lunging forward, all makes for a more dynamic feel that u just cant do with sexy pin up art. i RARELY get asked to draw men and i dont blame anyone, there are so many other artist that are much better at it and not many that are better at GO ASS as me. so it all works out. i do get pigeonholed in the sexy category but its what everyone pays me for. 

i try never to have the shoulders, hands, elbows knees, etc, "even-leveled" on the paper cause it immediately stiffens the pose. with characters like superman and WW, its better to do so cause it creates the feeling of strength in the stance. imagine wolverine trying to tip over captain america in his power stance, just not gonna happen. but if all of ur weight was resting on one leg, there's a better chance. and with one leg forward like bats here, gives the illusion of faster movement as if to pounce. the open hand also gives off that feeling because it indicates that he is ready to grab or choke someone or perhaps grab his batterang. 

i tried to give an ambient light from the city below to have a more morbid feel and i think i like this technique and want to use it more often, but first i need to master it. ive never used this much red before.

i HATE drawing buildings more than anything, i dont like rulers or straight lines and its one of the main reasons i dont mind not working for the Big 2, everyone lives in NY and id blow my brains out drawing so any squares. i dont know how they do it. but i like the way the roof top turned out. 

as u know dept is very important to me and if u look closer at the rain, all the lines behind him are done thinner and lighter to make sure it looks pushed back. this is my first time drawing rain on a commissions before so i still need to work on that too. 

GO ASS!!!

Wolverine Head sketch by ebas
Wolverine Head sketch

oh man, this was a pain to do. u all know how much i hate drawing faces and its cause i have not studied them like i have the figure. so its frustrating, because when i know something is "off", i don't know "exactly" how to fix it. eventually i get it right, but its with a lot of trial and error. i can fake anything in the comic medium and thats why u all think i can draw faces well, its because i've learned the comic way to draw them. 


i find that my biggest strength is being able to walk away from the piece even though its not finished. i never ever rush the layout stage cause that's the most important. even though this is just a head sketch i'm very happy with the way it turned up. 


GO ASS!!!

Phoenix 5 White Queen by ebas
Phoenix 5 White Queen

my first time drawing this version of the white queen, and i enjoyed it. i think she is now my fav looking female character. i had a hard time coming up with a pose that hasn't been done before, and i dodnt succeeded cause i rather show her full frontal and more iconic than go with the story telling pose. oh well. 


there are NO digital enhancements on this at all, this is exactly what it looks like in real life, and is %100 copic marker. if any of u have this blank, its my fav to work on (for future ref)


the metal was a pain, like always. it takes massive mojoing for me to get it just right which i never seem to do, but i try. i really like the sassiness in her hair and eyes, along with her shoulders. 


GO ASS!!!

Wonder woman stars head sketch by ebas
Wonder woman stars head sketch
well, if i said it once, i'll say it again. i hate drawing faces. like a lot. not only have i not studied them, i am not good at symmetry at all. it could be cause i dont like recreating hte same thing twice after i just drew it. bleh! 
i really like the cape flowing about her area. 
something something GO ASS!!!

this is me at a draw-off auction at wizard world texas 09

there is a big room where all these other artist gather and mount up at an easel, and do there stuff....

i know im known for my hot chick drawings, but when holding up a piece of art for a crowd to look at u want to go with something that has more punch....this wolvie and batt piece scored the third highest bid after lee bermejo and marko dejurjovic.... which feels pretty good....and a local radio station that does comics and art interviewed me on this piece...which also feels pretty good...

go ass!!!

Hi, Eric! I know you receive tons of positive feedback, so how can I possibly be original here? :) (Smile) Your works are truly great and really inspiring! Thank you very much for sharing your art and also for detailed descriptions of every piece. It’s very insightful!

From your comments I understand that you allow coloring and inking of your works if proper credits are given. I would love to take some of your works for inking. Your art will really inspire me to do my best.

I’ve inked one of your pieces already: Snow QueenSeanE posted a high-res file in his journal for those who may be interested in inking it. He liked the result and colored it: link, so I believe I did the piece justice.


Best regards, Vitali.
