Baron Karza by ChristopherStevens Baron Karza by ChristopherStevens
I wasn't familiar with Micronauts or Baron Karza, but I liked the funky design this guy had, so it was fun to do. I made a few minor changes to him, but nothing that's too off I don't think.

Prisma/Copic markers, white paint and color pencil on vwllum bristol board

Baron Karza Marvel Comics? Not sure if it's Marvel or some toy company.

Great Job on Baron Karza! He had a counterpart in white, that'd be a great contrasting piece.. :)

Considering that you had no familiarity with the source material, you did an excellent job with the illustration.

Awesome pose and gesture-i love that front hand. And the way u do different materials (flesh/iron/wood) is increadible. You should make a video with some basic techniques (nod)
Cheers dude :)

That is one crazy-looking character. As always, you're sense of form is impeccable. The figure has such weight to it.

I generally don't care about this Micronauts guy, er whatever, but your art just makes it amazing! I would love to see you do comic pages like THIS, all black and white, traditional markers. If you won't, then I will.

That is awesome! I loved Micronauts as a kid. Been thinking about doing some sort of drawing myself, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Fun!

Also, Michael Golden did the art chores on the first 12 issues. Definitely worth checking out if you can get your hands on 'em!

Well I'm familiar with the Micros and you did a great job!!
Actually had the figurine given to me. His fists would shoot
out, back when they let kids have that happen, LOL!
Terrific composition and I like the texture on the metal.

Everything about this is so great, the textures are spot on. How long does it take you to do these crazy marker and crayon pieces?

:iconchristopherstevens:
ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2010
Thanks. I haven't used any crayons yet, but I will if I think it needs it. A piece like this usually runs about 12 or 13 hours I guess.

Love this - the Micronauts were made into a Marvel title but only after the Matel toy line was flourishing in US toy stores. Michael Golden did some amazing work for this title in his hey-day!

Hell no! Shortcuts work for anyone. I mean compositional shortcuts, not the way we draw.

I know what you mean I think. I don't really know any though, so I could probably learn a lot.

I'd say the masters of compositional shortcuts are Greg Capullo and Erik Larsen.
