Colours for the Marvel red team, i did an earlier version of this which is my most viewed pic, so i thought i'll do a new one and compare. My aim is to beat the views of the previous so if you feature this image in a journal and message me to tell me i'll feature a couple of your images in my journal.
Like the Fantastic Four, my first memories of the Hulk were from the mini-digest reprints Marvel UK put out in the late 70s / early 80s. I liked those old Jack Kirby tales about a big, ugly bloke with poor social skills and an inability to find properly fitting shoes, who just wanted to be left alone and live in his cave. I guess something about that resonated with me... (well, apart from that whole living-in-a-cave thing.)
Anyway, I can't believe I never got round to drawing the jolly green giant until now, so here he is. This pic had a strange genesis - it started out as a homage to Adi Granov's wonderful cover to She-Hulk #3. (It's true - even some of those cracks in the floor are the same.) But it would have been odd if I'd put the Hulk in exactly the same pose as his cousin, so I moved him around a bit.
The art-style is probably more influenced by Art Adams and Ed McGuinness, two artists who can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. The anatomy, as ever, is not my strong point - the muscles on his right leg are a bit weird, and I'm not sure what happened with his arms. But, then I guess Hulk always had somewhat strange proportions anyway.
A good, fun piece to do - especially all those popping veins!
Update: Re-uploaded a bigger image, if you fancy colouring this.
