Lineart Portfolio 2014

Laura from mckelvie and kierongillen's The Wicked and The divine, I've been trying to practice different hair attributes lately and there's just so many great hairstyles in wicdiv. I did this one in a few sessions in between pages/panels, and as a result feel it’s a tad over worked, but I’m pretty happy with her hair.
I need to get better at makeup.

Morrigan from kierongillen and mckelvie's thewickedandthedivine. I wanted to draw wavy hair and got a bit carried away when it sort of turned out in a way that I like, so I kept it going. Love this design.

Supergirl. Another dream job of mine. I took a break from drawing pages when I noticed how long it’s been since I’ve posted here. Hopefully at some point soon I’ll have something to announce, but for now I’m just working away in my little cave.

I guess I’m late to the party since everybody seems to be posting their pages for the fifthelementbook book. I’ve opted to post mine without the lettering to save some mystery for those who are getting a copy.

It was a ton of fun, for my pages, I basically decided to create a “Deleted Scene” explaining why Right Arm is the last person to make it to boarding for the trip to Fhloston Paradise. I didn’t get to draw Zorg, but I basically got to draw everyone else, and my own mystery lady, so I’m happy.

My completed Gambit. I sort of said all I could about my love of @kristaferanka’s covers the first time, but it bears repeating, awesome work.
Also, if I could get to draw a Gambit solo-title, I would be okay with that.

WIP- Been loving @kristaferanka’s covers to X-Factor and I love #gambit so I thought I’d give this new design a shot. I might be overdoing it a tad with the textures on the coat, but I don’t know, I kinda like it. Still have a lot of work to go.

NOTE! A VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THE 2014 KEVIN CHURCH BIRTHDAY FUNDRAISER TO HELP KIDS TO READ GOOD IS INCLUDED IN THIS POST.

Next Monday is my birthday and, as I’ve done in previous years, I’m doing a fundraiser for classrooms and deserving charities. This year, since I’m turning FORTY on August 18, I’m going to go really big and offer up a piece of my personal comics art collection to one lucky donor, chosen randomly. That’s it up there.

The rules are simple: if you give $5 or more, you’ll be entered to win a piece of original Stuart Immonen/Josef Rubenstein Superman art or an all-new piece of Superman art by Stuart or a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest!)

Yes, really. These are things that are being given away to three lucky winners. I’ll pay for the shipping (within the US and Canada — international people might have to kick in a few bucks) and everything; you just have to donate.

So, how does this work?

All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.

A winner will be chosen at noon on Tuesday, August 19th, giving you all through my birthday to give a few bucks to help kids.

Now, for the charities we’re raising money for this year.

This is a local nonprofit I heartily endorse
Horizons for Homeless Children is, as their website explains, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children and their families by ensuring that they are prepared for school success. They do terrific work in the local area and I’ve donated what I can to them in the past.

I also like these projects on DonorsChoose.org:
Check This Out! at Frances J Warren Elementary School in Tuscon, AZ, serving underprivileged kids in a very poor district with a wide variety books to help them discover how great reading can be.

Notebooks for Writing at Mosaic Prep Academy in New York City, giving kids access to the very basics that will help them start creating worlds for themselves.

More Books For Our Classroom Library in Gautier, MS, offering up literary options that will engage kids and let them learn how great reading can be.

Creating a Classroom of Readers and Writers at James Bilhartz Junior Elementary School in Dallas, TX, helping fourth-graders get the basics to help them organize, read and write about library books.

Developing a True Multicultural Perspective through Literature in Atlanta, GA, teaching teens about the world at large through works that offer alternative perspectives on our world.

Please note: if you are a comics creator who would like to donate a book or original art or a commission or something to this effort, please let me know at kevin.church@gmail.com. I’d love to get some more incentives in place for donations.

This is my attempt at the new Batgirl design by cameron-stewart and @babsdraws; I had a lot of fun playing with the different textures and making the colors not exactly match up as though it was all bought in different shops. I tried to make her rope look metallic, but looking at it now it sort of reads as Wonder Woman’s lasso. I’ve decided I can live with that.

A kickstarter will be launched to fund the undertaking so please keep an eye out for that as this is the same team that restored the Nelvana comics and that turned out beautifully.
The Kickstarter has launched and is doing awesome! Check it out and back here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hopelnicholson/brok-windsor-lost-wwii-comic-book-returns

I’ve finally finished my Bartkira contribution! I colored them and that now seems like not the wisest choice as it took forever. But I’m done now, and it was fun, and difficult, and frustrating, and absolutely a fantastic experience.

I hope you like my pages, I’m awfully proud of them.

Warm-down sketch of Zorg from The Fifth Element movie. I’m contributing a 3 page story to a Fifth Element themed book that’s got a week left to be funded and is right on the cusp. Please check it out and help out any way you can: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/830739004/fifth-element-a-fifth-element-artbook #zorg #fifthelement #kickstarter #comics

I haven’t posted much, of late, sorry about that, I’ve had a few projects come my way that have been requiring most of my time.
Anyways, in order to celebrate reaching 100 followers a little while back I decided to share this Link commission I finished recently. Thank you so much to all my followers and everyone who has liked and reblogged my work; your support means a ton to me!

(UPDATE: Uploaded a better version (in my opinion))

Drawing Bartkira pages is kind of a weird experience of having styles pulling in 3 different directions. Super fun though!
