I was a fan of the Marv Wolfman/George Perez Teen Titans late in life. I wound up picking up a bundle of issues that included the “Judas Contract” storyline from a used bookstore when I was 18 or 19. I was aware of Deathstroke from his own series, but had assumed he was just a Punisher rip-off. He’s more like Captain America gone bad. In my mind, anyway. Anyhoo, he’s a little overexposed at the moment, but he’s a great villain with a great look and design. Whenever they changed his costume, it was a crime against humanity.
I drew a Deathstroke sketch about a year ago for the purposes of putting it on here at some time. I found it while digging around looking for stuff to update the blog with, but it was not something I felt good about. I feel like I’m striving toward a more cartoony style, and the old drawing wasn’t bombastic enough (not that this is, either). But I think this new drawing is more where I’d like to head to, stylistically.
I dunno. I’m full of it.
