I missed my weekend post, but I’m following through with my promised Wednesday, new comic, new art, post. And then bed before 10.
What I’m Reading

What I’m Drawing
So I don’t think I’ve posted any of my Gwen Stacy series here yet, so I’ll have to make an art section for that. The story is, in February earlier this year I started a month long drawing challenge dedicated to Gwen Stacy, or more specifically Spider-Gwen. I called it the Gweniverse. I took the idea of Spider-Gwen as an alternate universe version of Spider-Man and applied that to as many different characters as I could think of. Marvel, DC, didn’t matter.
I started first with the ones that were already canon, SpiderGwen, Gwenom, Gwen Poole, and then just ran with it:
- Gwencrawler (Night Crawler)
- Gwenclops (Cyclops)
- Gwentanna Gwentara (Zantanna)
- Gwenbit (Gambit)
- Harley Gwen (Harley Quinn)
- Gwennernaut (Juggernaut)
- InGwencible (Invincible)
- Rogue-wen (Rogue)
- Gwen 2099 (Spider-Man 2099)
- Gwen Lantern (Green Lantern)
In February I was able to do the first 9, and then throughout the year I’ve been adding to the collection when I find some inspiration. I’ll post the gallery for next week.
#Drawtober – Wonder Woman
Still slowly making progress on last month’s Wonder Woman drawing. I’ve now inked my background, and now we are finally ready for colour.
This is, by far, the most work I’ve ever dedicated to a background on any piece I’ve done. And it was one of my goals last month when I decided to do fully realized, rendered pieces; to push myself to do backgrounds more consistently. It is one of my weaker skills and it’s something I’ll need to be able to do more when I return to working on my creator-owned comic.
I should be able to put in some real time colouring this, leading into the weekend as I still hope to get a new Stranger Than Friendship comic posted by the end of November.
As I mentioned at the top, I missed this past week’s post, but I’ll have a significant update after this coming weekend. I’ll have a lot of things to discuss. On the docket we have:
- Grand Theft Auto Definitive Trilogy
- Forza Horizons 5
- and Halo Infinite Multiplayer
And bed before 10.
