Arcticman by stratosmacca Arcticman by stratosmacca
Earlier tonight I came across this sketch I'd done a couple months ago. It depicts a character I consider a very old and good friend-- Arcticman.

He's a special guy to me because he was the very first superhero I ever created, back when I was in 5th grade in elementary school. He's gone through a few different costumes through the years, but this is his latest incarnation.

I was inspired to do this drawing by looking over work by the Wieringo brothers, who had taken to redrawing old superhero characters they created as children.

I have many, many more original comic characters at my disposal, but Arcticman will always be my favorite. I'd still love to do something with him someday!

He's going to kick some ice! Man... Batman and Robin sucked didn't it? Sure, I didn't see the movie, but there was a good reason for that.

I love Arcticman. Its great seeing you revisit him now and again. :-)

How very (the pun is unavoidable) cool!

I have drawings dating back to 1980 or so. Ply me with enough booze and I might post some.

Problem is, I'd really rather not be responsible for inflicting blindness, insanity and heart failure on an unsuspecting public... :boo:

Aww, I think you should go for it!

I was actually thinking of doing a side-by-side sort of thing, with my original sketches alongside my newly revisited ones. If you do it, I will! ;)

Yay! You brought him back!! :D :D D I remember when you showed me the OLD drawings you did! I really think he looks awesome! He looks like he has the playfulness of Mark in Invincible too I might add :D :highfive:

Hah, yeah, I did show you some of those old sketches, didn't I?

I guess I do see an Invincible-ness about him now that you mention it. Arcticman was always kind of a happy-go-lucky sort of character, but older than Mark is.

I'll have to do up some more sketches of my characters-- it was pretty fun to revisit them! :)

Hahaha Yeah remember? We traded off on images on aim :D (I still have yours on my ipod btw for inspiration :blushes: )

I would love to see a sequential page of him sometime to display some of his characteristics and to see him in action! That would be cool.

Yes :evillaugh: more MORE! you know I'll love 'em! :D If you'll do it, I will too in my own crappy way lol
