NYCC 2017 Sketch List is CLOSED!

My Pre Show Sketch list is now CLOSED.

Thanks to all who inquired, I will notify the first 20 by 9 Pacific Time on the 2oth.

Send an email titled NYCC SKETCH, through my contact link at  www.terrydodsonart.com or to terry at terrydodsonart dot com (my usual web contact) letting me know the following information:


 9” x 12”  or 11” x 14".

I will do a full figure or 3/4 figure depending on what works best for the composition on the 11" x 14",

and  likely it will be 3/4 or thigh up figure on the 9" x 12"

I do the sketches on 

Color Canson MiTeinte Pastel paper

with Red Col Erase Pencil, Copic Warm Grey Pens, Black Markers, and Prismacolor White Pencil or Pro White

IF you want your sketch in your SKETCHBOOK, just gauge the size to the 9 x 12 or 11 x 14. However, I won't be able to do many as I won't have the SKETCHBOOK until I'm at the Convention.

See below for sketch examples and visit my blog, Instagram, Deviant Art and Twitter for more examples.
I’m not taking Blank Cover Pre-Show requests, I will decide at the show if I’m going to be able to do any there.


A Single character and I decide if it needs a background but you are welcome to suggest.

Be clear as to what version of the character you want.

And you can list a top 3 of if you want to.


As you will be picking this up in person from me at NYCC, I need this. To be fair, and for my sanity, and yours, I’m only taking requests from people actually attending NYCC.

-------NITTY GRITTY------- 

-To be fair, and for my sanity, and yours, I’m only taking requests from people actually attending NYCC.

-I will take the first 20 COMMISSIONS requested via email and then CLOSE the list. I will then pick the SUBJECT I want to draw. As I complete them, I will contact you to let you know your piece was chosen, it's done, and request a partial payment via Paypal ($100) to hold, and then remainder in CASH from you at the show at the time of pick up.

-Once I stop the list, I will announce it is CLOSED and then I will let the 20 know they are on the list. If you don’t hear within 24 hours of CLOSED then your request was not one of the first 20. I will continue picking sketches until the start of the show so everyone should know.

 -SO, not everyone will get a sketch and there will most likely be some confusion so read everything carefully and if you don’t hear from me with 24 hours of closing the list, you are NOT on the list of 20.

-If you do make the list of 20, you are NOT guaranteed a sketch, just that I’m choosing from those 20.

- It’s only when I email with the 2nd email and tell you your sketch is completed, request partial payment, then, you know, … it’s done :-)

I will do as many as possible!


Please ask in the thread below so everyone can see - thanks!




Please ask here!




  1. Hi Terry, if we are not selected for the pre-show process, are you sketching at all during the show? And if yes, will it be first come first serve? Thank you!

    1. I will be working from the pre-show list only as I most likely will only have a few done before the show due to deadlines so will do the majority of the sketches at the show (and using this list). Thanks!

  2. Hi Terry,

    Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly. Totally understandable, the shows are very hectic. I have your Vampirella sideshow print that I would love to get signed by you in person!


    1. You bet, I will be available the whole show... and I have will books, postcards, prints, art available as well!

  3. Hey Terry,

    Was the list live at 9 or at the time of this blog posting?



    1. 9am - I just forgot about posting until emails starting popping up in box!!!
