The Best. The Strongest. The Most Powerful.

I started this sketch because I just wanted to see Wolverine and He-Man in drawing together. Once I finished their positions in the rough sketching stage I noticed how much bigger He-Man was than Logan (as it should be), and I thought it would be cool to put someone even bigger than He-Man behind them both. The Hulk seemed like a good pick. Once I finished penciling and inking it I brought it into photoshop and proceeded to add more textures, colors, shadows, highlights, and backgrounds than I have used in any one drawing in years. I think it turned out pretty well, with nice depth and atmosphere. Overall, I'm pretty proud of this one.

BTW, in case you don't speak "fanboy", the title of this illustration stands for the slogans of each of these characters. Wolverine is "The best there is at what he does (and what he does isn't nice)", Hulk is "The strongest one there is", & He-Man is "The most powerful man in the universe".

Hair Club for Villains

Sorry it's been 5 weeks since my last post. We've had a baby in the past month! I think I get a break for that, right?

Anywho, I wanted to draw an illustration with villains interacting, and once I decided I wanted Red Skull and Skeletor to be involved, the bald jokes started coming and wouldn't stop. Thus, I'm proud to present the Hair Club for Villains! For those who don't recognize the founding members, they are (from bottom left and going clockwise); Skeletor, Kingpin, Red Skull, Mr. Burns, & Lex Luthor. Skeletor looks so happy. Maybe all he really needed all these years was a nice hair piece, not the Power of Grayskull like he always claimed. Sounds like a self-esteem problem to me.
