Aladdin and Abu sketch by tombancroft
Aladdin and Abu sketch
I know, its too much: I'm uploading too many things today.  One more: Aladdin and Abu, for a friend.  It was fun revisiting these two since I animated some of Abu in the film- and the Atari video game!  Long time ago.  
Zelda/ Link by tombancroft
Zelda/ Link
Crazy idea: Why not have Princess Zelda as Link from Legend of Zelda.  Thought went through head, hand had to draw it.  Pencil/inks by me and colors by Jeremiah Skipper.
The Greatest of All Time by tombancroft
The Greatest of All Time
Here's a rare commission I did for a friend: Ali vs. Superman, but with a video game type twist.  I know there was a big comic by Neal Adams back in the 70s, so I guess this was inspired by that.  I colored it with Copics.
Spidey by tombancroft
I don't draw him often (because of that dang webbing) but I tend to enjoy it (most of it) when I do.

I'm a former Disney supervising animator (Mushu from Mulan and a few others) as well as director at Big Idea Productions (Veggietales) for a couple years. For 7 years I co-owned an illustration/animation development studio, Funnypages Productions just outside of Nashville, TN.

I am now working on my own freelancing and doing other contract work for TV, film, comics children's books, video games and other kids stuff!

I wrote and drew 4 issues of my creator- owned series, "Opposite Forces". Also, I wrote and illustrated the character design instructional book "CREATING CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITY" through Watson-Guptill publishing. My next book "CHARACTER MENTOR" comes out in 2012 from Focal Press publishers.
