Widows Web 1
the new creator series by writers raven gregory and autumn ivy

this was a fun piece, i noticed after the fact that if i laid over the golden spiral it ends on the spider, fun to see that in action, because thats where your eye wants to go.

it really has been so much fun getting to draw this character over and over again, and it is one of the only books I've read as well as worked on.

The Secret Life of Crows part 3 Ebas cover
drawn by eric basaldua :iconebas:
colored by me.

not much of a colorist nowwdays, most of you wont realize that i've gone completely rogue and started up my own little thing with tons of big plans, mostly to deliver a bunch of awesome stories drawn and colored by me with guest writers......some of which you guys actually know haha.

anyway, even fewer of you guys know about one of my great friends here, ebas. we have been working together for almost 9 years now.....lots and lots of projects and covers worked on together, and after all these years finally having a piece of his to literally call my own, on my own book, so amazing. So here it is :D

you cant get this version just yet, (2015), but you can get some of the more rare versions, including the nude variant at

For some it's quantity over quality,  vice versa for others, but for you it's BOTH! O_O

Do you still do tattoo work? I'd do just about anything for even the smallest sitting with you at the Denver Comic Con this year. It would be the best souvenir ever.
ToolKitten Featured By Owner May 28, 2014  Professional General Artist
i dont, nope. its been almost 9 years.
Old-Marcie1234 Featured By Owner May 16, 2014
I honestly don't think you know how to draw women. And I find your "Native" girls ridiculous.
ToolKitten Featured By Owner May 28, 2014  Professional General Artist
i dont think i know how to draw anything. im just constantly learning.
Old-Marcie1234 Featured By Owner May 29, 2014
Oof. Just don't learn it from comic books.
ToolKitten Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014  Professional General Artist
ive never done that, i am adamantly against trying to learn how to draw from other art and not just life. i have my own tastes, though.
