Welcome to my sketch blog!

I am a cartoonist, illustrator, designer, and painter. I'd like to say a professional one, but I'm still working on that. Welcome to Step One of that process: my own personal sketch blog! Its purpose: to keep me drawing, and hopefully, to provide art for others to enjoy. Please feel free to leave comments- I appreciate any critiquing of my work. Just try not to completely tear me a new one. Also, I do commissioned projects! If interested, contact me at tonyaros1@gmail.com. As you can see I draw comic characters a lot, but I also paint and draw just about anything so hit me with your ideas!

I Just Discovered the Internet

After years of seeing other artists posting awesome artwork on their very own personal blogs, I decided I'd start doing the same, if for no other reason than to motivate me to draw more.  Hopefully somewhere along the process I will actually become able to draw.  So without further ado, just so this blog doesn't look so empty and pathetic, I'll post some old work of mine. 

I always liked the Fantastic Four when they're portrayed more as "science-adventurers" and less as superheroes.  Here's my take- Sue looking very mod, Johnny a literal ball of flame with a person somewhere inside, Reed with some kind of crazy techno-gadget, and the Thing basically a grouchy old man. 

Original Iron Man?  Original Iron Man.

Continuing with the "original" theme:  the original X-Men.  Now, while I was pleasantly suprised at how much I enjoyed X-Men: First Class, this is the the only first class that'll ever matter to me.  Why, oh why couldn't they have made the first X-Men movie about a team of teen outcasts in the 60s discovering their powers and fighting against intolerance?  Featuring Cyclops, Jean, Beast, Iceman, and Angel?  Oh, because that would have been too close to the source material that made the X-Men so popular.  My bad.
