These are mostly from WWLA last weekend. It was a busy show, and I did a ton of these. Thanks for checking them out!

The ladies all look great (I love that Spider-woman). But does the Punisher's head seem a little off?

He's been punched in the head a lot.

I'm getting to New York early in the morning with the specific intent of getting a sketch/commission from you this time around.

Those sketches are brilliant by the way.

How long do these take?

I planned on getting one at the NY show, do I have to do anything special in advance besides showering?

From my experience last year, several individuals did not shower.

It isn't a scan. It's a photograph. So it isn't "head on", and looks wacky. Sorry.

I can do a better Spiderwoman. Someone ask me in NYCC or something.

Ethan, I'm skipping NYC this year (the con is the weekend of my son's birthday). Are you going to the Baltimore con this year? I'd love to get a sketch from you.

That Baltimore show is very strange with me. They invited me last year at Megacon, and then sort of didn't follow through. And when I called to see if everything was okay, they acted kind of embarrassed. I'm guessing someone doesn't like me in Baltimore, and I'll not be attending anytime soon.

:-?

Fair enough. I'll catch you at a con some day.

If I were rich, I'd definitely try to get a Spider-Woman sketch off of you at Chicago.

That's not refreshing for the one who owns the Spider-Woman you already did. Don't make me fly to New York. Thanks again for the Spider-Woman I really love it.

Here is a link to the Storm I also got.. This one turned out great as well.

The Arisia sketch rocks, even though I have no clue who she is.

Note: Did you "invent" the idea of the little floating green emblem that all the Lanterns have about 3-4 inches away from their logo? I LOVE that they all have that now, its a really neat visual that I always enjoy when I see it.

Hey, you got his first ever sketch of Spider Woman. That's pretty kickass. :)

Its probably a bit early to ask but are you going to Chicago, Ethan?

I can't find a guest list, my web fu is weak.

Yeah, I really like the character though, and know that I could grow to be a very good Spiderwoman artist. No opportunity to practice, though! That was my first try, and I like it, but I can do better. That's all. :)

I may see Ethan three times in the next two months, without even trying too hard. He's a convention iron man.

Well In San Diego this year I will get another Spider-Woman fullsize, and a head. Plus a Storm fullsize what do you think about that.

Ethan's a stand up guy. I met him in Texas last year, and that Doom sketch for Pat is amazing.

03-20-2008, 05:27 PM
Ethan come to Vegas, and draw me a kick ass picture like one of those.

All of the sketchs look really good.

Love that Doom he just looks so evil and powerful. You can feel it coming off the page.

Well, then I better make sure I manage to get a Robotman (from the Doom Patrol) sketch from you this year... :)

Can't wait to get a Green Arrow sketch from you, dude! It's going right over my couch for everyone to gawk at.

PS: Fucking love that Arisia one!

Oh yeah, one other question. What do you do if you're not really familiar with the character you're asked to sketch? I ask cause, I'd probably ask for something from the Starman series, but that might be a little too low-key for most artists to know.

I always bring a reference. Or a couple times, when they artists says they've never drawn the character, I've run off and bought a comic to use as a reference.

Hi Everyone,

As the owner of the Punisher piece I am quite happy with it. So happy that I nearly tackled Ethan with excitement when I saw it. When Ethan told me his idea for the piece I knew he would make it sick. And he did.

And Ethan is correct, it is only a photo, from my iphone of all things. My scanner is only 8x11 and no matter how I tried it wouldn't fit.

Tiki, I still love ya bro.

For anyone that wants to see some other Punisher pieces, check out my gallery. http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryDetail.asp?GCat=23719
