Gladiator


Gladiator

Cool Dave Cockrum design, pretty cool twist on the Superman archetype. Cool X-Men sometime villain. Bad drawing from a few years ago.

It Means “Go!”, Goddammit!


Green Arrow

Seriously, the green arrow means go. Don’t fucking hesitate. And for that matter, when it’s just a regular green light and you’re making a left turn, pull into the damn intersection, for chrissakes.

I believe I’ve already laid out my love for the archer superheroes in the Hawkeye drawing. I’m especially a big fan of Mike Grell’s run on G.A.

This is the most green I’ve ever used to color anything.

I’m a Creep


Creeper

My first exposure to The Creeper was the “Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told” trade paperback. I was fascinated by the bizarre character. Ditko’s some kind of genius. Crazy, but genius. I even was a big fan of The Creeper series from the late 90s. Not so much the Steve Niles series. Best forgotten.

The Shadow of Atomic Fear


Atom

Two Sabbath references in a row!

I like The Atom. I became a fan of Ray Palmer when I found the “Sword of The Atom” series in a second hand store, and enjoyed his appearances in Dan Jurgen’s unfairly maligned “Teen Titans” series. But I’m not such a whiny fuck that when he was replaced by Ryan Choi – which is the version I drew here – that I threw a fit. Or gave a crap when Ray returned. I did like the Ryan Choi Atom series, though. Gail Simone wrote some fun stories, John Byrne cranked out some of his most tolerable art in twenty years, and Mike Norton rocked it for the remainder of the series. My one problem with Ryan Choi’s Atom was the color scheme of his costume.. It seemed backward. I colored it here the way that makes sense to me.

Has he lost his mind?


Iron Man

This mook’s got nuthin’ to say. Iron Man 2 trailer looks a-okay though. I do like Iron Man’s classic armors infinitely better than anything he’s worn since 1992.

Silver Surfer


Silver Surfer

In the early 90s, I was a big Silver Surfer fan. I was also a big Ron Lim fan. Not so much either, nowadays. Still have a fondness for The Surfer, though. Would love for there to be a Surfer book I’d want to read.

Batgirl


Batgirl

I’ve always had a fondness for the Barbara Gordon Batgirl. Probably just comes from a childhood crush on Yvonne Craig from the old Batman TV show. A crush which still kinda continues. It probably also instilled my appreciation for beautiful redheaded women. I loves me some hot redheads.

Anyhoo, as with the Power Man/Iron Fist drawing from a few weeks ago, I’m still continuing to work with greytone marker renderings. I don’t feel this one came out as well. It seems the markers I’m using have a life of about one drawing only.

Spider-Woman


Spider-Woman

I need to draw more female characters. I need to draw more/better inked drawings. I need to color those drawings. Here’s an old sketch of Spider-Woman (like 5/6 years old). I haven’t gotten much better.

Howard the Duck


Howard

I’m not too familiar with Howard the Duck, other than the movie. Which I like. Yeah. I said it. So what of it?

Kyle Rayner


Kyle

I’ve got a lot of Green Lantern art on this blog. I don’t even read the book. In fact, the last time I read an issue of GL was when Kyle Rayner was still wearing this very costume. Blue Beetle and Booster Gold were guest stars in that issue.
