Judge Dredd Finished inks

I went really nuts with the very fine, over rendered, crosshatch thing that I do.

I am currently accepting commissions. Please email me at for a list of affordable rates.


Judge Dredd!!!!! step by step

This is the step by step process of a Judge Dredd commission I did recently. These are the very rough concepts, where I'm just trying to capture a pose and maybe some lighting, even though I didn't use the lighting I chose in the thumbnail.

Here's the finished pencils. I decided the the left arm of Dredd looked too plain, so I decided to add a stripe down it to (A) make it more interesting and (B) more police-like.

Yoda Sketch 1

I've never been a huge Star War's fan but I always thought Yoda was pretty cool, especially in the newer movies where he kicks some ass.

UFC 116 - Lesnar vs Carwin recap

UFC results & thoughts: Brock Lesnar def. interim champ Shane Carwin via submission (arm-triangle choke) - Round 2, 2:19 (becomes unified champ) - I thought it was pretty fun to watch Carwin beat the crap out of Brock for most of the first round. I'm disapointed that all the speculation about Carwin's cardio was true. Once Carwin hurt Brock he should've spent some of that effort securing top position and picking his shots, in the same way that Brock did in his rematch with Mir. Brock on the other hand, is making a great progression into MMA, and he's doing it while being the #1 ranked Heavyweight and UFC champ, which makes it all that more impressive. When I saw Carwin come back out of his corner to start round 2, I knew it was all over for him. He looked exhausted and I knew he'd be too tired to stop Brock's takedowns now. I'm definitely more impressed that Brock finished with an arm-triangle choke than stopping Carwin on strikes. He may not have tapped anyone with a half decent guard but it was still pretty to look at.
Brock Lesnar went from being the prototypical pro wrestling 'Heel' to coming back from adversity (in life and in the octagon) to win over the crowd, be humble, and 'turn Face'.
Carwin can look at what he did wrong, work on his cardio issues and make another title run. And to be quite honest, after Lesnars performance saturday night, I truly believe Cain Velasquez (the #1 contender) has the better striking, grappling & cardio to put Brock away.

Chris Leben def. Yoshihiro Akiyama via submission (triangle choke) - Round 3, 4:40 - Akiyama needs to fix his cardio issues. Maybe he needs to drop to 170. I t was very cool to see Leben get hurt and still come at Akiyama like a zombie.
Chris Lytle def. Matt Brown via submission (armbar) - Round 2, 2:02 - This one went down pretty much how I though it would. Great grappling from both guys. Lytle always makes it harder on himself than it needs to be, but in the end, he was the better fighter. George Sotiropoulos def. Kurt Pellegrino via decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) - Again, this is exactly what I thought would happen. Sotiropoulos hustled Pellegrino and 'Batman' had no answers.
Stephan Bonnar def. Krzysztof Soszynski via TKO (strikes) - Round 2, 3:08 - At least Dana White can now justify keeping Bonnar on payroll.Brendan Schuab def. Chris Tuchscherer via TKO (punches) - Round 1, 1:07
Ricardo Romero def. Seth Petruzelli via submission (armbar) - Round 2, 3:05
Kendall Grove def. Goran Reljic via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 29-28)
Gerald Harris def. David Branch via knockout (slam) - Round 3, 2:35 -
Harris is steadily improving & should get some main card love hopefully. I want to see more from Branch as well. I'm always excited to see a guy who will try a flying triangle or flying guard, even if that was his undoing against Harris.
Daniel Roberts def. Forrest Petz via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)
Jon Madsen def. Karlos Vemola via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)

UFC 116 : Lesnar vs Carwin !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't wait for this fight card! Like him or hate him, everyone gets excited when Lesnar fights. I've been warming up to Lesnar & his charisma with the media while hyping this fight, but I definitely want to see Carwin knock his block off. This is the biggest heavyweight fight since Fedor vs Cro Cop (2005), & with Fedor tapping to Werdum last weekend, it will decide the true #1 Heavyweight.


UFC Heavyweight Championship
Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin
- The first guy to land a big shot should win this fight & become the new #1 ranked Heavyweight. From watching the Gonzaga fight, I know Carwin has a solid chin & from what I've seen in Lesnar's rematch with Mir is that he really wants nothin to do with getting hit. My feeling is that Carwin hits harder. That man hits like a fuckin Mack truck and I think he can clinch Brock against the cage and hit him with some serious dirty boxing. Either way it goes, I doubt it gets out of the first round. Carwin by KO, rd 1.
Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Chris Leben - This will be a great fight. Leben has the striking and power to hurt Akiyama, but the Japanese fighter has a very sturdy chin and will more than likely get it to the floor where Leben has a lot of liabilities. Akiyama by submission, rd. 2.
Chris Lytle vs. Matt Brown - This should be a great battle with 'Fight of the Night' potential. Both are very similar but I'm leaning Lytle since he is (when he wants to be) the better technical striker and Brown has a bad gas tank when pushed. I see Lytle taking over when Brown starts to slow down, hurting him on the feet and possibly submitting. Lytle by submission, rd 3.
Stephan Bonnar vs. Krzysztof Soszynski - In the rematch that nobody wanted I'll take Krystof, only because Bonnar lost to Mark Coleman. Soszynski by decision.
George Sotiropoulos vs. Kurt Pellegrino - This is a great lightweight battle. Both fighters have stepped up their game lately and looked very good doing it. I feel this will be a very close technical fight with Sotiropolous edging out Pellegrino. While Kurt has the better wrestling, I feel like George has the better BJJ and striking game. Sotiropolous by decision.
Brendan Schaub vs. Chris Tuchscherer - Look for Brock Lesnar's training partner to get cut after Schaub puts a beating on him. Schaub by TKO, rd. 1. Ricardo Romero vs. Seth Petruzelli - Romero should put a beating on 'the Kimbo Killer', for a solid Octagon debut. I'll say Romero stops him with strikes, rd. 1.
Kendall Grove vs. Goran Reljic - Grove is the more skilled fighter but I can never pick a guy with such a paper mache chin. Reljic by TKO, rd 1.
Gerald Harris vs. Dave Branch - This is the most intriguing fight of the undercard, and I am really excited to see the prospect Branch's Octagon debut. I'm going with the favorite, Harris to get a TKO stoppage but I won't be surprised if Branch can tap him. Harris by TKO, rd. 2.
Daniel Roberts vs. Forrest Petz - Roberts by decision.
Jon Madsen vs. Karlos Vemola - Vemola by TKO, rd. 1.
