Comic Drawing that fell short of pure splendor

This is a drawing of characters from my science fiction comic.  I hope to one day post my comic online.  I was looking at some of the artist Mark Schultz’s work and came up with the idea for this drawing.   Mr. Schultz’s work is staggeringly beautiful.  I have always admired his black and white drawings of classic adventure themes.  He creates such painstaking work of pure splendor!  Pure splendor I say!   I believe my drawing has some issues and fell short of pure splendor, but I’m posting it anyway.

Sketches from my sketchbook.

I made these sketches last week during an art teacher inservice program.  We had a chance to work on African masks and I sketched a few examples of the masks we were shown.  The first page is other art teachers that were attending the meetings.   Facesinameeting Africanmasks

Talking With Fish

This drawing commemorates the Aquaman of my youth.  I drew him talking with his ocean friends.  Aquaman is a copyrighted character of D.C. Comics and this is just my fan art drawing of the character.  The new D.C. Comics movie is supposedly going to include Aquaman as a character in the movie.  Apparently, the actor Jason Momoa that played Conan the Barbarian is going to portray Aquaman.  The Aquaman I grew up with was from the cartoon Super Friends and he had a very clean-cut persona.  Recently D.C. Comics has made the character have a more mystical and rough story line and appearance.  He lost his classic orange shirt and his left hand.  I miss the Aquaman of decades past whose most widely recognized power was the telepathic ability to communicate with marine life.
