Marvel Two-In-One!

After the DC Fifty-Too! group's success with remaking the DC Universe it turned it's focus on the Marvel Universe. Above is my entry for one of my favorite series in Marvel's history, Marvel Two-In-One. I say more about my affection for the series, Ben Grimm, Gorilla-Man, and which characters I'd pick in following issues over at the site.

Here's the thumbnail from when I was trying to figure out who exactly I was going team Ben with. The actual size on this is about an inch and a half high. I originally just started drawing a crowd around them, "Doombots in the Savage Land" came later. I knew from the start that GM would use one of Ben's classic lines.Once I decided that it would be Gorilla-Man, I did some sketches of both of them to remind myself how to draw them, and play around with some specific design aspects, mostly small costume details.Thanks for looking!

Serve and Protect?

I started drawing the characters from Buddy Cops last night for fun and this is what I ended up with. I had intended to do this as a rough and then draw everything traditionally but I put so much time into it digitally that I just stuck with it. Still no word on when the first story will show up in Dark Horse Presents, but I'll be sure to make it known when I find out.

Mary Blair'd

Here's a Mary Marvel I drew on Friday, which would have been Mary Blair's 100th birthday, and I just got a chance to throw some color on it.

Portrait of a Doc


The other night, inspired by the great Mike Holmes, I sketched some self-portraits in different styles. In case you can't read it, from top to bottom is me in the styles of Hergé, E.C. Segar, Charles Schulz, and C.C. Beck. It's a fun little exercise.

Another edition of Nate Cosby says things, and then I draw them. This is how it works.

Sprock

A recent commission of Mon-El and Shadow Lass, two members of the Legion of Superheroes, a group I'm largely unfamiliar with but would like to know more about.

O Captain, Future Captain

As we get back into our regular rotation, the theme at ye olde Comic Twart this past week was Bucky Barnes, as picked by Mitch Breitweiser. Instead of the usual preview clip, I've posted the whole thing here. I've certainly come around to this character since Brubaker and Epting brought him back as the Winter Soldier a few years ago and his recent resurgence as a mainstay.

The background image is a Jack Kirby Captain America page I found, cleaned up, and colored. I've posted that below. I should note that this is not at all how I would normally color it, this was done completely with design in mind and trying to emphasize Bucky.
Thanks for looking!
