This is an incomplete drawing I did (more like a sketch) for my Ghosthawks after a rough battle. These guys are savage secretive warriors that handle the 'darkest' tasks needed to protect our nation. They're basically highly trained militaristic field detectives that focus on those with 'abilities greater than normal humans'. There are only 5 of these guys in a squad. Normally each one acts alone covering specific areas of the United States while the leader is responsible for international missions. Occasionally there will be cases or missions in which more than one or the entire squad would be needed.
None of them have powers and use their training and skills to survive against overwhelming odds.
This picture has a Dossman (medic) in it trying to save the life of one of the fallen Ghosthawks after being wounded. They just completed a fight with a small army of 'N-ionically' enhanced soldiers that attempted to 'acquire' a nuclear weapon from a Top-Secret location.
The battle was won, but of course it came at a high price. A price that these warriors are willing to pay without qualm or second thoughts. The Ghosthawk on the ground later died from his injuries after this mission. His code name was: SAINT.

Your art is up there with many of the artists who are drawing ‘mainstream’ on some of the top titles. In fact, your art is better than many of them. There are only about 7 good artists that I consider in the comic industry today and you are among them. I love your art.
I am really picky about the artist and story combo and I cannot read a story with crappy art. But you have an excellent story and fantastic art. The best of both!
I remember reading stories written alongside the art of Ernie Chan, Joe Jusko and John Buscema and I remember the stories that were horrible and took away from the artwork that went along with those stories. It means a lot to see fantastic art and a story to match.
For those of you that are new here...this is an illustration of a group of characters in Blackmage's soon to be released book: Elite Forces Division : First Factor. Its a great read, right along the lines of superhero stories, but from a common soldiers point of view.
The Muse leaves you in a zen cloud of well being, positive energy and creative fire. You find yourself succumbing to the overwhelming urge to write and create.......
Omen: Get in line, I have been working like crazy also. I have two major projects I have to finish and hopefully everything slows down. Haven't had time to log into the board... I actually miss it. It feels good popping my head in to see what's going on.

g40t90yes: Good Morning. Now I am no political activist, but with is going on in today's activist world, I have a question. Last Sunday Vice President Pence walked out of a Colts Football game because the Players took a knee. I would like to read your View about this

g40t90yes: Continue. Now The NFL Owners (Jones-Cowboys, Ross-Dolphins) are going to demand their players stand for the Anthem. Again just thinking out loud. Couple of weeks ago Owners (Jones) knelt with players. Now you are pulling back. Why??

g40t90yes: One more thing. Some people view The NFL Draft and NBA Draft as a modern day or fashionable auction block for black young men. Thoughts!!! Please.

The Muse: Im sure there are going to be a lot of thoughts on this...why not start a thread on the topic under the "chat" board. It will be easier for everyone to read and comment on it there. This shoutbox is kinda cumbersome to have to scroll through to read stuff.

The Muse: Where does the time go?
Nov 7, 2017 9:26:16 GMT -5
Omen: I don't know... some say time goes around in circles - for me, its just a dreary long squiggly line, in some places in its a smile, in others... its not.
