Some people may remember I posted a pencil sketch a while back of a creepy looking Dracula, well, I did a cleaned up version of that and my brother (Michael Roanhaus) put some colors down on the count. So, with out further a do, here he is in all his creepy colorful glory! Hope you enjoy, and oh yeah, have a Happy Halloween (and hopefully you won't get any crummy apples while trick or treating.)

While I normally use this blog to just post artwork, I came across this bit of news the other day and had to post a link to it: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3163721
Now lately I haven't been playing too many video games, but when I saw the trailer for the long awaited Street Fighter IV I was definitely floored, and aside from maybe the next installment of Super Smash Bros., this is the game I've been waiting for. Hopefully Capcom will keep the newest SF traditional to it's pixelated roots and not make it 3d (they already did that with the EX games and those weren't so great) but judging from the trailer it looks like they may take it into 3D which may not be so bad if they can actually make the graphics look as cool and stylish as they do in the trailer. Anyway, Capcom is supposed to be releasing more info on the game within the next week but for now the trailer will do as Street Fighter fans can only speculate on how the game is going to play.
Oh yeah, for fun and because the trailer got me so excited about the game, I just had to do a quick sketch of Ryu getting ready for battle. The first image is a cleaner version done in my regular style, while the one after that is a grittier version that I played around with a bit in photoshop.

Man it's been awhile since I've updated this thing. I've been pretty busy working on a bunch of different projects and kind of wanted to hold off putting anything on here until I had something other than a half assed sketch to put up. Anyway, since in my previous post (which was like 2 months ago) I had Marvel characters posted, so I figured I'd try my hand at some DC characters and who better to draw than Batman and some of his rogues?
Anyway, looking back I probably wouldn't have drawn Batman so bulky, sure it makes him look kind like the DKR Batman but still he's probably a little too big there. For Mr.Freeze I tried to give him more of a retro looking deep sea diver look, and while looking for reference on that I also came across some astronaut gear that I mixed in with the design. The rest of the characters I just tried to give them a twisted kind of Nightmare Before Christmas look, and the Joker is more of a cross between a messed up marionette puppet and something from Prince's wardrobe.
Hopefully it won't be another 2 months until my next post, but I recently started putting up some of the linework to these colored pieces on my deviant art account at http://www.marcusmuller.deviantart.com/ for anyone that once to see that stuff.
Oh yeah, colors on the Batman characters were done by Michael Roanhaus too.
