After my little break (pun intended) im back doing my T.L.I.I.D pictures and catching up with commissions
This weeks theme was "As the new year begins, I think of fresh starts, like perhaps a brand-new #1! So suggest lesser-known Marvel characters that you’d like to see be given the Marvel Now treatment and our artists will work up a cover of their first issue"
i'm a little late in posting this but here's week 98 (99 to follow shortly) this week was Comic Book Characters and Star Trek Characters i went with Captain Kirk & Captain Mar-Vell (had to throw a little bit of Spock in there too) suggested by [link]
check out the awesome work of everybody else here: [link]
I did this commission featuring Gold Key's classic hero, MAGNUS ROBOT FIGHTER, for Rick Fortenberry, a comic book seller with a taste for the classics! It was actually meant to be a Leeja commission in the Russ Manning tradition, but I wanted to put Magnus in there too.
The machine holding Leeja captive is really the dashboard to a 1964 Ford Falcon. Who says we artists don't have a sense of humor?
This is a 11x17" illustration that was inked primarily with a Raphael 8404 brush and Speedball Super Black India Ink on 500 series bristol smooth board. I also used Pelican graphic white on the Earth's clouds.
