Pin-up sketch for APPLEGEEKS webcomic collection by AdamWarren
Pin-up sketch for APPLEGEEKS webcomic collection
Here's a 2009 pin-up I contributed to a Dark-Horse-published collection of the (now apparently discontinued) webcomic AppleGeeks. Medium: 6B 2mm pencil lead on linen-finish cardstock.

And here's the rough for the sketch:

Color guide for EMPOWERED UNCHAINED cover by AdamWarren
Color guide for EMPOWERED UNCHAINED cover
Behold, my rather rudimentary color guide for the cover artwork of Empowered Unchained, the latest installment of my ongoing "sexy superhero comedy" series published by Dark Horse Comics. (By the way, I'm posting this puppy as a stopgap measure while trying to dig up a final version of the actual colors for the piece.) If you like, you can check out a cleaner version of the B&W inks for the illustration here:

Hello, there! I'll soon be heading up to Toronto to attend FanExpo Canada on August 28-31, after missing out on the show last year. General FanExpo info here: fanexpocanada.com/

I'll be tabling somewhere in Artist's Alley for all your signing, sketching and saying-hi needs. No panels, no shenanigans, just four days of straight behind-the-table time, guaranteed! If you're missing any Empowered volumes, I should have plenty on hand, as I'm planning to sell backstock from fine local comics emporium The Beguiling at my table, as I did at TCAF a few months back. (If I recall correctly, they had a surprising stash of long out-of-print Dirty Pair: Run from the Future TPBs as well...) 

I'll have a healthy supply of my 2011 sketchbook Empowered: Extra Sketchiness on hand, in case you never snagged a copy. Some images from the 28-page book:
 EMPOWERED+NINJETTE hi-contrast by AdamWarren EMPOWERED's vorppy Emp by AdamWarren Ridd1e's EMPOWERED cosplay by AdamWarren

I'll also be hauling along original art of various sorts, from cheap(ish) roughs to cover art to that one giant clump of Dirty Pair vellum-based inks that no one ever wants to buy, alas. Plus, I'm almost certainly taking on some sweet commissions while I'm there, along the lines of these 2012 pieces:

Side note: A little birdie (that is, Twitter) tells me that a badass Ninjette cosplayer will be attending the show, so keep your eyes peeled for her if you're clawing through the crowded convention floor next week!

Dear Mister Warren

Are there already any Spooky/Hannah/Maidman cosplays? Haven't found any.
Anyway, we did them :D

You can find them in my gallery, some examples:
dark-columbia.deviantart.com/a…
dark-columbia.deviantart.com/a…
dark-columbia.deviantart.com/a…

I hope you like them :)

I want to thank you for the story about Hannah and Theresa. It was one of the most touching stories I've read in a long time. I was REALLY in-character when cosplaying Hannah.

We parcitipated with it on the cosplay contest. We mostly played the farewell scene. It's in german unfortunately, but if you're interested, from minute 17 to 20: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NpfD5…

Upon a second inspection for this series to crab about sexploitation in any genre of art is flagrantly hypocritical. Showcasing copiously T and A and then pontificating about how ironic your cheesecake is is tacky. If you want to slut it up, do it, but don't excuse with characters that burp feminist drivel, like how flouncy supergirl's skirt is; or how revealing Mai Shiranui's outfit is. One is meant to cutesy and girlish, the other is blatant cheesecake for a mostly male gaming demographic.
