You sir, are going to have to stop doing that to me. I can only view so much greatness before my head will explode. Once again, the characters are spot on and the Kirby Krackle is alive and well and beautifully rendered.

It's like looking in on old friends, long gone. Oh, how I miss them. Thanks for this glimpse JB.

***

Not as a rule. I generally prefer to avoid characters I haven't done before, but even that's not hard and fast. Mostly, I concern myself with what's in the image, as opposed to who. For instance, just the other day I was asked to do a commission piece which I felt would not really be very satisfying for the customer, so he came up with something else. Oh --- that was this one!

Man, I miss Scott's boots.  To me, it seemed many artist struggled with them or just couldn't get it right and they came across as bulky or silly looking.  Chief, you always get the boots right!

Fan-frickin'-tastic, JB.  That's my favorite of the commission pieces you've posted recently.

Hell yeah! Colossus center stage !

JB, is there anything stopping all these cool images you are doing from being used by marvel in any way?  A poster book, or posters, or something?

Another thing I'm wondering.... the more you put in the more you charge? If you charge per character someone is dropping some big bucks.

Okay your getting to me JB! I'm having a devil of a time trying to decide what I want my commision to be, but I think after seeing the last couple it's going to be X-Men related.

I was curious to see how the modern JB would recreate that scene. Thanks for sharing! Great work, as always!

****

The base price for a 20x30 is for 6 characters, then
there is a flat rate per character beyond that.

Hmmmmm, JB, I know I need to contact DOA Sales to commission a sketch (I read the FAQs), but will they also supply a price list of some sort?  Or is that something you prefer to deal with directly with the person requesting the sketch?

BEAUTIFUL, JB.  I'm saving those pennies so I can get a BATMAN commission from you.

In-cred-ible!

I've been enjoying all of JB's commissions that featured FF characters (particularly, Ben Grimm) so much, that the last couple of X-Men illos have really been appreciated.

Hey!  Two Powerball tickets worth $600,000+ were sold in my area over the weekend.

Guess what?   Mines not one of 'em.

Great work on this commission JB.  Thanks for sharing.

I am leaving my silence and posting for the first time because I love this piece.

6 characters in a 20x30 Original? That is incredible. I am so going to need to save my money. I have to have one of these. Thanks for sharing JB. I hope one day you will share a piece I am getting.
