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!

God of Thunder

Just a quick drawing of Thor that I just finished coloring in Photoshop.  I changed a few things up on his costume, just playing around.  I wanted to incorporate a representation of the Nine Realms into his armor, so I have the nine circle plates on his chest and shoulders (yeah, I know, he has two on his knees, but disregard those- ha). 

And just to show the process, here's my initial inked sketch, which I scanned in then colored.  The second pic is my basic blocking-in of colors, before adding the finishing touches.
