Now that my crazy Marvel deadline is over, I can relax a bit and work on my creator owned projects (Liberty Meadows, Zombie King, Guns and Dinos, Dragon Lines, etc.) . The first being Guns and Dinos.

Few may know that I’ve been writing Guns and Dinos story the longest. The more I wrote the more intimidated I got about drawing it as the scenes and sequences became more and more complex. On top of that, this is really my first science fiction piece that deals with real life technology and near future possibilities. On several occasions, I thought of hiring a co-writer and artist for this project but I decided this would only dilute my vision.

So I stripped the story down to the very essence and reworked it. As always I work best by drawing it as I write. Also I’m doing this completely old school by hand lettering it.

Here’s one of the pages that I’ve been working on last night.

It’s Guns and Dinos again for me this weekend. My mind was just not into the Frankenstein piece this weekend. Instead of finishing up the Frankenstein illustration, I worked on my creator-owned project, Guns and Dinos.

I’m trying to kill two birds with one stone here. These Guns and Dinos pages are for the movie pitch packet and upcoming comic book mini-series. Ideally, I would present the full finished comic book to the studio in a pitch meeting but I don’t have time to do a full comic book. So I’m illustrating the key points in the story and making a condensed booklet for the pitch meeting. Later on, I’ll reuse these pages and finish the comic book mini-series.

It’s funny, as I’m drawing these pages, I realized that I love drawing dinos but hate drawing guns.

Here’s the first official art for GUNS AND DINOS!!! I wanted to save this for later after the 50 Girls 50 launch but I couldn’t wait.

Guns and Dinos is an action adventure time travel story of a military base that gets trapped in the past where dinosaurs rule the land. There will be tons of violence and gore as the US military dominate the animal kingdom with superior firepower. But as the ammunitions, fuel and food run out, the soldiers must outsmart and outrun the dinosaurs as they protect the only think that could send them back home.

Watch for more Guns and Dinos posts and art here.
