DC Comics - Zatanna by MarkRaats
DC Comics - Zatanna

Time to take a trip into the strange world of DC again with Zatanna.
The nice thing about these projects is that I get to work with characters I know absolutely nothing about..

Copic Markers, a little paint and Prismacolor pencils - A3.

007 Skyfall by MarkRaats
007 Skyfall

This was designed to be part of a triptych Bond on the middle panel, M on the left hand panel and Silva on the right hand panel.

Unfortunately, this was one of those great projects that for numerous reasons, didn't work out.

Acrylic paint and Prismacolor pencils on board - 18 x 50 inches

Ewan McGregor - Obi-Wan

Because a new project I am planning on doing will require me to work at a slightly smaller scale than usual, I wanted to experiment to find the ideal size for me to be able to work and not feel inhibited. 
This new piece of Obi-Wan was done to a size of 8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches and its great.

Original art Gouache paint and Prismacolor pencil on MDF board, 8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches.

Hey Mark...just wanted to congratulate you on the amazing work you're doing. Being a kid of the 80s and being a fan of Struzan's classic movie posters your artwork is really a pump of fresh air into the genre and you are a master at your trade. Thanks for keeping the genre alive.
I invite you to check out my portfolio when you have the time:
