Sketchbook Spotlight: Marcio Takara’s New York Comic-Con Commissions

matakara1

For most people New York Comic-Con marks the end of convention season, capping off a long summer of announcements, reveals, and other assorted fun. As such, it's also one of the last big places for fans to get amazing sketches and commission pieces from artists, who tend to cap off the season with some truly amazing art.

Marcio Takara may be best known to long-time readers for his extraordinary "tiny characters" series, or for his work on Captain Marvel, Smallville, and the Kickstarter-supported original graphic novel Earthward with writer Bryan Q. Miller. He's also one of the hardest working artists you'll find in any Artists' Alley at convention season, and New York was no exception; his commissions include Captain Marvel, Rocket Raccoon, and a very striking Illyana.

Around here, New York Comic-Con marks the end of convention season, capping off a long summer of announcements, reveals, and other assorted fun. As such, it's also one of the last big places for fans to get amazing sketches and commission pieces from artists, who tend to cap off the season with some truly amazing art.

Case in point: Kris Anka. You may know him as the artist of Marvel's All New X-Factor or Uncanny X-Force, but this weekend, he busted out the pencils to create some fantastic pieces of art, taking on characters like Star-Lord, Kitty Pryde, and even everyone's favorite irredeemable scumbag, Gambit. Check out a few of our favorite picks from his NYCC commissions below!

I wasn't able to hit HeroesCon this past weekend in sunny Charlotte, North Carolina, but I was able to routinely refresh my social media feeds from the comfort of my own home. As always at Heroes, an assemblage of awesome artists were cutting loose with wild commissions befitting the jovial spirit of the show, but only Erica Henderson (known in part for her work on Subatomic Party Girls with Chad Bowers and CA's own Chris Sims) was genius -- or perhaps nefarious? -- enough to upload a series of farting sketches starring your favorite superheroes. Superman, Power Girl, Jubilee, Robin -- no beloved character was held sacred! You can browse Henderson's tantalizing array of tooting titans after the cut.
