Flash's Rogues (CW style) - by Kinjamin by kinjamin
Flash's Rogues (CW style) - by Kinjamin
Ha sorry it took forever for me to do any kind of drawing but I have a lot of other things going on in my life.  Anyway, I can state how much I love love LOVE the Flash TV show which is by far, my favorite comic-based show of all time.  To top it off, Barry's rogues gallery is my 2nd favorite (after Bats of course) so I wanted to do this piece which is a homage to Ty Templeton's cover...

 -- which in turn was a homage to Carmine Infantino's cover:

Some notes:

- Yes, I realize Weather Wizard's "wand" actually does something entirely different, but I wanted to include it as an identifier.. as well as having it correspond with the original cover.
- I included Golden Glider instead of Boomer because it didn't feel right to exclude her since she's the 3rd Rogue show-wise.  Plus, Boomerang isn't exactly Barry's exclusive foe currently. (Although Lisa's gun is a little corny -- sorry guys)
- Captain Cold is like on my top 10 favorite villains.  Love his portrayal on the show.
- went with James Jesse Trickster vs. Axel Walker Trickster because duh -- Mark Hammil!
- Tried to make the logo look like the logo CW is using.

That is all.

Hey guys sorry I haven't put anything up lately.  I've been super slammed at work and I have the hardest time working on the computer to draw when I'm home since I spend 12 hours a day on the computer as it is.  But I'm working on something Flash-related right now and it should be up in the next couple weeks.
Nebula And Sulu (#saveSelfie) by kinjamin
Nebula And Sulu (#saveSelfie)
..because that show was awesome.. and would of been the only show with an Asian male romantic lead (Glen from Walking Dead is awesome, but isn't that show's lead)

If it isn't clear to everyone, Karen Gillan (Eliza from Selfie) was also Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy

Such a damn shame the show is cancelled.  Hopefully some other outlet picks it up.

TDK Trilogy Epilogue: Clayface by kinjamin
TDK Trilogy Epilogue: Clayface
So when I was thinking up Clayface for the villain piece I did, I dug the idea to just go to the source.  In Detective Comics #41, Basil Karlo is introduced as a disgruntled actor with a mask that goes ape-sh*t serial killer on a film studio.  I pretty much just kept that origin. 

I'd like to think of Basil as an evil Daniel Day-Lewis that went off the deep end.

With all the technical advances Hollywood can do with prosthetic makeup, I thought it was a good way to represent Basil's "shape-changing" powers.

Also wanted him to have backup in the form of Matt Hagen (Clayface II in the comics) and Preston Payne (Clayface III in the comics)

I kind of like the idea that even in that last panel, you still can't quite see the face of the killers.

If it isnt entirely clear, the group of faces just above Basil's head represents some of his many disguises.

Also another thing that might not be clear, this is totally one of the "unconfirmed sighting of the Batman" post TDK, pre TDKR.  And it is Bruce that beats the crap out of the Clayface murderer(s) and drops them off at GCPD

oh btw I want to mention I'm not trying to demonize FX studios at all.. In fact I was trying to bring to light he fact that film studios completely lowball them to the point of them having to shut-down. It's completely terrible and would drive any of them to high levels of frustration. This is kind if the 'postal' version for the entertainment industry... which thankfully didn't happen - but could have.

Kiddy Croc (and how I felt about the Gotham pilot) by kinjamin
Kiddy Croc (and how I felt about the Gotham pilot)
Ok I know, it's just a pilot.. but holy crap it was super corny.  How dumb do you think your audience is?  I mean does Ivy need to be holding a plant?  We really need Harvey to tell Ed Nygma "no riddles!"?  Still going to watch it because I love Batman that much.  (And sorry to anyone that actually liked it)

I think I finally hashed out how I'm going to do the Riddler. Gonna take some time tho because its going to be a double spread. But I'm really fusing him into the TDK trilogy lore.

of course! Your stuff is amazing! Added a couple of your pieces as favorites awhile ago -- I don't know why I didn't watch you sooner.

Hey man! I love your Dark Knight one-page comic origins about the characters. Can I get one of those for my characters?

Do you plan to do a Court of Owls? Arrow-centric pieces? Anarky and Black Mask?

I could help you if you want. I have GREAT ideas and I think I could make them fit into the Nolan-Verse.
