Introducing The Becca Shop!

Times have been tough around the Becca household lately and it's looking more and more like I won't be able to do any of the comic conventions I had planned for this year...and I have all this art lying around so what to do?

I have created a new site called The Becca Shop on which I have original art pieces & prints for sale, as well as information about requesting commissions. If you have a few minutes check it out! Click the picture to visit The Becca Shop:


And to promote the new site I'm offering free shipping on any original art ordered now through May 8th!

Oh Rob Liefeld...

So I've made it no secret that I am not a fan of Rob Liefeld's art and I know a number of you agree with me so I needed to share a link. Progressive Boink had an article from 2007 called The 40 Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings and it's brilliant! The article critiques 40 separate illustrations by Liefeld and it is appropriately hilarious! Here's a sample:

In "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way," "Drawing Comics in the Style of Detective Comics Comics," "Aping Shit the Valiant Way," and every other drawing tutorial I've been a part of, it clearly says that every line you draw on a person's face adds to their age. When you're drawing children or sexy young women you give them clean surfaces to suggest youth and a tightness of veins, and when you draw Clint Eastwood in an eyepatch hanging out with Gen 13 you draw all over his face to let people know he's old. Depending on who you talk to, every line can equal a year added onto the life of your character.

Shaft, the young leader of rogue operative team "Youngblood," is 900 years old. And he's looking through really fine blinds. Also, his head is on fire. Image Comics is about living for the moment and taking it to the extreme, they didn't have time to learn that when you stick your head in a shadow it blocks the light on both your face AND your hair. Doing research for the Lion King? Let Disney Comics go to fucking Africa and look at how lions work, draw the lion from a point of view no man can see, and when the ink is still wet, run a comb over it.

Isn't it funny that when asked to create a universe of characters for his own comic book line Rob Liefeld draws a guy who looks exactly like Rob Liefeld and names him "Shaft?"


Seriously you guys need to check this out. So funny.

Some Mythology Themed Drawings

Medusa. I always picture her as unbelievably gorgeous, so gorgeous one look can turn you to stone...ha get it....sigh, yeah...unfunny.


Athena checking out the Percy Jackson books.


And finally this is Circe waiting for her next victims to arrive at her door.

Thorgirl

A recent drawing of mine :) She's simple but I like her energy :)

Is that Burt Reynolds?

Oh...oh gosh...it's Burt Reynolds on the cover of Playboy. At least he isn't naked on a bearskin rug...I guess...thank you Cosmopolitan Magazine (insert sarcasm here).

The Fourth Doctor For Kevin :)

I'm pretty sure I've never posted this on this site and since your favorite Doctor is Tom Baker I hope you (and everyone else for that matter) dig this :) I have drawings of every Doctor except Matt Smith, I'll have to post them all at some point.

Actual Beatles Hair?

It's a wonder Paul never went bald.

I couldn't help myself.

I had like a million of these stickers when I was a kid and somehow I never thought to spell my name ;)

A couple of new drawings

First off we have the princess from G-Force/ Battle of the Planets. I love her chunky thighs :)



I received a request to draw a "very pretty Amy Winehouse" here is what I came up with...and no drugs in sight....



And finally a skater girl pin-up. Someone said she reminded them of Dolphin from DC comics. I love a girl with white hair :)



Let me know what you think :)
