Finally getting caught up on scanning/posting new commission pieces.

It's clobberin' time.

Another commission done with mixed media (ink, markers, white paint touch-ups, white pencil crayon), this time of the Thing.

Thanks. I don't know about a print, but I'm working on putting a nice quality sketchbook that will probably have these two in there.

I really like this, as well as all you've done, but, one thing kinda bugs me about this one.

It really doesn't seem like 'ol Ben is really grabbing that piece of concrete or whatever it is. It just seems to be sitting on the end of his fingers.

Maybe having that hand a bit more closed, and moving the drop shadow a bit closer would've stengthened that a bit.

All in all, it's a REALLY MINOR nitpick, which I'm best known for, unfortunately. LOL.

Great job! Glad I'm not the only one who noticed he looks like he's sans pants. It's a powerful piece, man. Looks like the John Byrne version of the Thing to me (at least in the face).

Thanks. It's a bit of a texture overload. Got carried away and probably should've held back a bit. It's my first Thing in marker hehe.

WOW....(AGAIN). So, what do you mean when say, "white paint touch-ups"? What do you use?

Thanks. I'm using a white watercolor paint to punch up highlights and add texture to come areas.

Yeah, I actually regret that. I wish I'd spotted it sooner, but it's be nice if you could see some of his trunks.

Ha! Well, to be honest, I don't have much interest in working for the big two. I love their properties, but I find drawing super hero comics to be boring as hell. I'm hoping to get my Image project off the ground soon and draw whatever I want hehe. The markers will probably show up at some point.
