It’s Friday. That means it’s time for “Looking Under the Line Art”!  Since issue #0.1 of the new Ghost Rider series I’m working on came out this week, we’re going to take a look at some art from an upcoming issue.  It’s written by Rob Williams, with awesome pencils by Matthew Clark ( @EmCeeArtist ), and killer inks by Sean Parsons.  Enjoy!

Heya Kids!  It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for “Looking Under the Line Art”!  This week’s special guest is artist Stephanie Buscema!  Stephanie is a freelance illustrator and cartoonist from NYC.  I met Steph years ago when she was an assistant editor on a book I worked on.  I fell in love with her art and I think she’s just awesome.  She started out as an inker for her grandfather, comic book legend John Buscema, where she learned how to make traditional sequential art with brushes and without computers.  Today we’re going to do something a little different.  Yes, technically we’re still going to look under the “lineart”. But, since Steph works in traditional medium (ie: gouache, cel vinyl, watercolor, acrylic ink, etc… and no computers), you’re going to see Stephanie’s “process” as she works on a Golden Age Catwoman piece.

Make sure you visit Stephanie’s website and check out more of her fantastic work, but some prints, commission original one-of-a-kind art, etc…  You can also hit her up on Twitter: @StephBuscema   And keep your eyes peeled for Teenage Satan. An awesome looking new comic and web app she’s working on, coming in September!

OK, well…  thanks for checking out Looking Under the Lineart and feel free to re-post, retweet and share this all over the place.  We’ll see you back here next week!

Heya Kids!  It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for “Looking Under the Line Art”!  This week’s guest colorist is Bettie Breitweiser!  Bettie is the monthly colorist on MARVEL COMICS’ Captain America and The Hulk.  She’s also about to start on the Captain America and Bucky series with Ed Brubaker and Chris Samnee.  Bettie and her husband Mitch also have a mini series out called Captain America: The Patriot.  Today, I’m not just going to show a single panel, because her color work is just THAT awesome.  Bettie has one of the freshest takes on color theory in comics that I’ve ever seen in my 20+ years as a professional in this business.  The color combos she comes up with are magnificent!  Plus, I hear she’s a helluva cat herder too!

If you’re going to the Dallas Comicon this weekend, make sure you look up Bettie and Mitch in artist’s alley.  Say hello and wish Mitch a VERY Happy Birthday!  Take a gander at more of Bettie’s work via her Tumblr blog:  or you can follow her on Twitter - @BettieB

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for “Looking Under the Line Art”!  This week’s panel is from the new GHOST RIDER series, set to launch next month from Marvel.  Art by Matt Clark, colors by me.  I’m loving working on this book soo far.  Ghost Rider was my favorite comic book character when i was a kid, so this is extra special for me.
