That's right! It's Free Comic Book Day this Saturday, May 4th! I'll be at I Want More Comics from Noon to 2, with copies of the Outdoorsman and Son of Ymir (for sale, sorry guys, not everything is free), as well as some prints. So come on by, say hi, and at the very least get some of the free comics that I Want More Comics
As some of you may know, Denver ComicFest (part of StarFest) is this weekend, starting Friday April 19th! I'll be there, along with a number of great local and well-known comic creators. Here's the official image for this year's event, which I drew: Make sure to take some time this weekend to come and see me; I'll have a table in Artist's Alley, where I'll
One of the coolest things about creating your own comics, is when it inspires another artist to draw you stuff! And that's what happened here... First up, my good friend Kevin Gentilcore, of Creephouse Comics and Teenage Love Zombies fame, jumped all over the chance to draw my newest creation Son of Ymir. Like me, he loves vikings, loves metal, and has an excellent beard.
Exciting news! I've just released the digital version of my new comic Son of Ymir for digital download! You can go to the store here on Blaze Orange Studio, and download a combo PDF/CBZ file back of this 24 page, monochrome color comic! Here's the cover: Cover to "Son of Ymir", a new digital comic from Patrick Hoover Originally, I created this character
Those of you who follow me on facebook, know that I recently announced my latest comic creation, Son of Ymir, early last week. Son of Ymir was my attempt at 24 Hour Comic Day last year, where I got 24 pages pencilled, and about 15 pages inked of my epic viking tale. Over the last few months, I've finished inking and adding a monochrome color scheme.
Animated series!? Just kidding. I recently had a reason to do a character design sheet for our hero, and after finishing it up, it just reminded me of something you'd see in an animated series. That would be pretty awesome, but no, no plans for that at the moment. Here's the character sheet: Normally I don't do these...I have an idea in my head, maybe
So I noticed today, that the StarFest and ComicFest sites have been updated, so it's a safe bet to share this with you..for this year's ComicFest, I contributed the pinup artwork for the convention. Thanks to Jason Page and ComicFest for the opportunity. Their theme at Starfest this year is 'Robot Invasion'; so I went with alien invasion, and drew up some Mars Attacks Denver!
A few weekends ago, I decided I wanted to get away from the computer, and back to the physical act of making art, and painting seemed a natural way to go. So I went and picked up some cheap gouache (opaque watercolors), and went to it. This was the result: "Maul" - gouache on cardboard, 11"x17" When my 4 yr old son
Here's a screenshot from my current work on the redux of my Outdoorsman: Boxenwolves story... I'm doing this one completely digital, using the amazing Manga Studio 4 EX program to do it. Pencils, inks, wording, the whole damn thing, all via this program on my PC. It's fun so far, though at this point I still prefer the old pencil-to-paper thing better. Anyrate, I
