OK, this is my first time attempting to post a picture here -- so I hope I'm doing this right.

Basically, in coming up with the office business plan for this year, it was decided that we needed a cast of characters to represent what all our office (characterized by Innovata, and Team Vanguard*) faces when going forth to develop programs.  So, after first shooting down using clipart from the Internet, or using a program to distort photos of people in the workplace, and talking down the number of characters that I'd be developing, I went ahead and sketched them up (with pencil) and then colored them in (with colored pens and crayons).

I'm rather pleased with the result, and I hope you will be, too.

*Team Vanguard was left purposefully blank slates so that they could don various costumes through out the business plan.

I should note, that in trying to execute the star-spangled field on the flag character, gave me a whole new appreciation for those artists who were drawing the stars on Wonder Woman's shorts.

Oh, they were quite welcomed.

The second set were the ones that everyone seemed to want their own copy of.

OK, this one was a result of a discussion with a friend where I was complaining that Agents of SHIELD should have been equal parts Spy-Thriller with a dash of comic book elements, and work-place comedy.  He suddenly burst out laughing at the thought of the pointy-haired boss being Nick Fury, so I sought to realize it.

Here's some pictures I did as a favor for my gym.  It's for their annual back to the beach campaign and I made the mistake of showing "Nick Fury" (see above) to my yoga teacher who immediately drafted me to do up something featuring superheroes.

I asked whether she wanted original or DC/Marvel, and she specified the latter.

All in all, I'm rather pleased with how these turned out, as this really was the first time I tried to draw bare feet and I was also attempting some action poses.  And with the second one I was really pleased that I remembered what a no-brand volleyball looked like.

And here's the final image for that "back to the beach" fitness campaign.

Oy.  This one caused no ends of problems, what between trying to depict the wave, depicting the figure accurately on the surf-board, and that [censored] hammer.

Those are really great, G-man. I especially like the superhero ones but that's not surprising. Have you drawn anything else lately?

Just some doodles of space-craft but nothing worth posting as yet -- I just can't nail down the details to my satisfaction.

At the time I designed the first group of people, I also designed our office logo ... which our office in Chicago refined from my pen sketch; however, our agency's Marketing Group wanted to present a monolithic entity to the outside world, so while we could employ it on internal documents, its use on publications and our website meant to be viewed by the public was prohibited :glare:

Here they are, with and without our unofficial motto and official office name:

Here's a gunslinging starship design that I've been toying with.  It's still in the sketch phase with all too many factors remaining to be finalized, but still, I thought it rather unique (at least, I saw nothing like it).

And here I was working out some other views of the ship.  Admittedly, kind of basic, but I was striving for something distinctive.
