My very favorite part about going to a comic convention is getting original artwork. The day I discovered that most artists are nice enough to do sketches, oh man, my whole little world was turned upside-down. Here was an original piece, however simple, made by the hand of a notable comic artist, for me! Art became (and still is) my main reason to do conventions.
After I met somebody who would commission comic artists to do Batgirl artwork--and had subsequently acquired a stunning Batgirl portfolio--I realized that I wanted to do the same thing with Two-Face (and Hal Jordan, who was my second favorite character, he admits, somewhat awkwardly today
). Seeing as how commissions cost anywhere from $25-$150, my collection is not yet that huge. ( Here's what I have so far, from the quickest free sketch to the more expensive pieces )
Here's the best I've found so far from pro artists, both from con sketches and their own galleries. Most of these guys are biggish names, the kinds of pieces I'd love to stock in my own portfolio. ( Man, what I wouldn't give to own some of these... )
Finally, this may be my last Two-Face Tuesday for a while. There's a lot more that I could post, but right now, nothing really fires me up enough to devote several hours a week to scanning and composing entries. At least, not enough to derail me from the increasingly-pressing actual work that's coming up for me IRL.
But if you'd like to keep following my rantings and ravings on all things Harvey Dent, I will continue to occasionally post news, comics/merch updates, essays, fan art collections, and all other Two-Face related stuff at my Two-Face fanblog "About Faces" over at LJ.
Meantime, I may actually start posting other stuff here if I have the time. Perhaps a series on Hugo Strange, although I fear that there'd be even LESS of a general interest in him. Oh, poor crazy Hugo, why don't more people love you?
