Shelly studies

Study drawings of a new character for "BlackGuard, Shelly The Seamstress.
The schizophrenic ex grilfriend of BlackGuard member Jonnie Staples, Shelly wants nothing more than to once again hold her former lover's heart......even if it means physically ripping it out of his chest.

BlackGuard Then and Now by suicidalassassin
BlackGuard Then and Now
With November being The BlackGuard's official birthday month, I figured I'd re-do one of the earliest drawings I did of the team when Jerrod Smith and I started the comic six years ago. Pretty cool to see the growth of my style, too. All that hard work paying off, baby!

Happy birthday, BlackGuard......ya bastards!!!!

Geronimo Jones studies by suicidalassassin
Geronimo Jones studies
Study drawings of the BlackGuard's personal pilot and chauffeur, Geronimo Jones! Geronimo plays a bit of a bigger part in our upcoming story arc, so I gave him an updated battle outfit. What role will the Jamaican Jalopy(totally just made that up) play in our new chapter? Find out soon at!

Sequoia studies by suicidalassassin
Sequoia studies
Studies of Sequoia, Mercer's Personal Assistant and the BlackGuard's moral compass. In this story arc, she'll be in a more relaxed mode than usual, so I went with a casual day off/stand by outfit that she can wear around HQ.
Sequoia returns to action soon with the BlackGuard at
Darius Doome Studies by suicidalassassin
Darius Doome Studies
Studies of The BlackGuards Mad Scientist, Darius Doome, in his new gear. Not too different....but I finally gave into giving him a trench coat. Cause, y'know.....I grew up reading comics in the 90's......where EVERYONE had trench coats.
Doome returns to the pages of BlackGuard soon at!

The hip hop culture, which he loves so much, can easily be seen in his somewhat graffiti inspired style of art. Go ahead, take a look at the gallery of the Suicidal's to die for.
