There's a new Outnumbered Comic Strip​ in the neighborhood.  Show it some Southern love by reading it, sharing it, and giving it a casserole or some nice cookies.…

Spider Gwen
I've been dying to draw Spider Gwen since I saw her design.  Well, she is the #sketchdailies subject for today, so I had to jump in and do my version.

Patron Original Art Commission: "Jedi Mushu", by request.
I have two spots open on my Patreon page for a monthly, hand inked commission like this (or of Wonder Woman, Supes, Batman, Spidey, your original character, etc. etc.)  Check it out here:

Goth Fairy by tombancroft
Goth Fairy
I did a new t-shirt design and it was a fun one.  Go get Goth Fairy over at either of my t-shirt sites I use, Tee Public or Neatoshop.  (Both are good but sometimes pricing or shirt sizes/options are different at one or another, so shop them both.).  I hope you like it!  Its inspired by a certain moment in a certain animated film.

tombancroft's Profile Picture
Tom Bancroft
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
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.

Hey Mr. Bancroft, just curious, how should i handle shipping wars(love wars)? there was this show and this couple got tougher at the last minute in the finale and it was very out of the blue, and the fan base is divided because of the ending, and people are being very mean about the canon couple, how should i handle this politely and maturely? it's been very hard having the shipping nuts shove the couple down my throat, i don't want to fight with people over a silly couple, but it's very hard to see people fighting over this when it's so silly.

Hey Mr. Bancroft, may i use your larryboy pictures for a documentary im doing about Big Idea?

Thanks for asking, but I can't give you rights to the images.  You'd have to contact Dreamworks (who now owns them) or Big Idea Productions (who would then check with Dreamworks) to get that kind of permission.  They own the copyrights to the characters, thus they have the rights for permissions.

Have your Character Mentor book and make it a point to go through each day and recommend at the library I work at for the new students in my major
Stay awesome dude!

Wow, thanks so much for the kind words about my second book- and for pushing it on the younger students!  That means a lot.  Thanks again!

Hello and thanks!  Nice to meet you also.  I'm glad you enjoyed my second book.  (My first, Creating Characters with Personality is also one you might like).  Thanks for following me here on DA!

can you draw on of my characters please? I always wanted to see my characters drawn in a Disney style

its okif you don't want to
tombancroft Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Professional Filmographer
The only way for me to be able to do that is by commission.  I only do commissions via my page.  You can check it out and see if that's something you want to do.  Its the upper tier level, so its pricy.  Sorry.
