BATMAN ’89

The comic book incarnation of BATMAN ‘89, as designed by Joe Quinones (from the comic book drawn by Quinones and written by Sam Hamm, screenwriter of the 1989 Tim Burton film) which I digitally sculpted with Nomad Sculpt for the iPad Pro.

Taking advantage of the layering abilities of a digital sculpture, I was also able to sculpt a complete Bruce Wayne face under the mask. The comic book version does not, by design, strictly resemble actor Michael Keaton, who played him in the film, but is instantly recognizable as BRUCE WAYNE.

Prior to this, I’d also sculpted a version that hewed more closely to the movie:

Howard the Duck Redux

I’m thrilled that Marvel has tapped the hilarious Chip Zdarsky and nicest-guy-in-comics Joe Quinones for a new HOWARD THE DUCK comic. I’m, uh, kind of a fan from way back. I based this Sculpey Firm relief sketch on Joe’s cool development sketches.

Howard the Duck was created by Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik.

Dazzler

 

 

When I was asked to do a superhero sculpture for the Relay for Life Charity, I knew I wanted to do someone previously under-represented in 3D (do we need more Wolverines? Really?). No other hero is the physical manifestation of the year 1980. As I’ve said before, if XANADU with Olivia Newton-John were a person, it’d be Dazzler.

This piece was designed by superstar comic artist and all-around nice guy Joe Quinones, whose drawn comics and covers for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and more. Check out his site: http://joequinones.blogspot.com/
