Blue Shock? Static Lantern? Who Knows?!

Glad you stopped by again, my friends!

I'd like to share a quick sketch cover commission I worked up for a client that likes to mix and match themes for characters. For this one, I was asked to sketch Static Shock as a Blue Lantern. I really had fun designing this simple, hybrid-costume. I hope you enjoy!

Hail the King!

Just finished this way overdue commission sketch of a Viking football player sitting upon his throne (AFTER the famous image of Arnold Schwarzenegger as King Conan) atop the remains of various NFL teams. I also drew inspiration from the book cover of Conan the Liberator. The client asked if the viking could mildly resemble former Viking player Jim Kleinsasser.

Neriah!

I'm HONORED that a fan chose my original character Neriah (from my comic series EDEN) for Kickstarter Reward Sketch #38! I always love drawing her!


NERIAH- created & drawn by Eric Henson

NERIAH WILLIS
(Brigadier General, UAAC)

Following the invasion of Earth by a mysterious alien army known only as the Nomads, Neriah stepped forward as the planet’s most fearless military warrior and was promoted to Field Commander of the Human Rebellion. Despite her aggressive resistance, humanity was eventually overthrown and enslaved; forcing Neriah, her son Avion and her surviving troops underground. Facing defeat, Earth’s High Council launched a last-resort mission to send Neriah to a refugee planet known as “EDEN” where she was to secure a Utopian home for the remaining population of Earth. All went awry when Neriah and Avion abruptly crash-landed off course near EDEN’s colony of outcasts, awakening just in time to witness her ship explode with her son seemingly trapped inside. Told that Avion is dead (which she can’t allow herself to believe), Neriah embarks on a journey to find him and to unearth the conspiracy surrounding his disappearance.

Neriah has no memory of her life before the invasion of Earth, but has pledged her existence to the guardianship of Avion and ridding the universe of alien tyranny. 

First appearance: EDEN #1

In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night....

Here's EDEN Kickstarter reward sketch #37--Green Lantern! It's style is inspired by Todd Nauck and a little bit by Jim Lee's version of the character.

Green Lantern- by Eric Henson
    "In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!!!"

It's Clobberin' Time!

Here's Kickstarter reward sketch #36! I dedicate this one to the memory of BrokenHill Steel Art and Jeremy Dale (who really pushed me to learn how to draw The Thing).

RENO- The ReEngineered Nocturnal Organism!

Check out this commission sketch of one EDEN's main villains-- RENO! I drew it as a Kickstarter reward for a great fan!


RENO- created & drawn by Eric Henson


RENO (ReEngineered Nocturnal Organism)


Reno’s current form is the product of years of genetic experimentation on the remains of warriors from an extinct species called Korothians. Since their planet’s mysterious destruction, warmongering cultures across the universe have attempted to revive these creatures in hopes to use them as living weapons. After fifteen years, an enigmatic creature called “Ghost” uncovers the secret to reanimating the Korothians and uses it to bring back the living corpse now known as Reno.

Reno’s previous memory is completely erased, and he now lives only to serve his new master--Ghost. Though he isn't the smartest of Ghost's disciples, he does possess brute strength, a ravenous appetite for flesh and the ability to regenerate from nearly any injury.

First appearance: EDEN #1
