I kind of made a deal with myself... If I did any non-HERO related art... I then had to do a HERO-related version.  I recently did a Hawkeye sketch but before did a HERO version of Hawkeye... who will actually make an appearance in the Third Chapter.  I also did a Hulk sketch so I did a HERO version of the Hulk.

First, I asked... what kind of animal could be a huge hulking creature... who is also Green?  Easy... A turtle.  Works out good cause there is a Turtle character in the 2nd book.  So here he is (at least a 'younger' version of the character...)

Just a few quick sketches...

 I was asked sometime last year about doing two sketch requests.  One for the Hulk and one for a Baby Hulk.  I told the requester that I was knee deep in a project but that if I had sometime to step away, I would give it a shot.

I recently wrapped up chapter 2 of HERO and forward it and the completely re-done chapter 1 to my editor and while I waited for him to go over it with a fine tooth comb... I had a little time.

So far I have done three sketches (the third I can't show it till the person gets them in the mail) but figured it was OK to post some here.

I have a small list of other stuff I need to work on so I might take this small break to whip out a few more sketches.... more to come.

Sorry for the delay...

Wow, this has been a busy year.  I just wrapped up work on Chapter 2 of HERO (44 pages done) and I'm getting ready to tackle Chapter 3.  Chapter 2 took longer than I expected simply because I also went back and re-did all 25 pages of Chapter 1 (adding gray tones and fixing 'little' issues I had with the first 25 pages).

I'm excited about Chapter 3 because Hero and Pudge have begun their journey and there is a LOT of stuff I want to share about our little world.  Chapter 4 is also something kind of special.  Mike and I call it the 'story within a story' and I look forward to working on that chapter as well.  For now, just a peak at the last page of Chapter 2...

More to come
