Thor vs Kong by ChristopherStevens Thor vs Kong by ChristopherStevens
Maybe my favorite Marvel cover so far. It's simple, it's Thor and it's a big ass gorilla foot. Good stuff. I was originally asked to do a Godzilla foot. That would've been even cooler, but they chickened out. They were worried about a lawsuit or something. Drat.

Thanks. Same ol'. Microns pens and the Micron brush. The Micron brush is a complete piece of shit, but I use it to get that dry brush effect when they start to wear out..which usually takes about ten minutes.

why does Thor have stone in his right hand, he is crushing by Kong's hand, not a stone, just my opinion :D

The rock's not actually in his hand. It's just a tangent. It's meant to just be debris from Kong's foot.

By Odin's beard, King Kong feet 'pon the back of the Prince of the Golden Realm! The indignity! Very nice work--any chance you have a scan of it before the big "fix" of the foot?

ChristopherStevens Featured By Owner May 19, 2011
Heh. yeah, Kong's got some smiting coming his way. I might. It'll just be a loose pencil drawing though. Legal at Marvel took one look and said.."maybe we should just do a gorilla foot"

Amazing as always! It kills me that Marvel hasn't yet commissioned one of your breathtaking and instantly recognizable marker renderings for a cover, though. Or have they, and I just missed it? I can identify one of your Prisma pieces even as a one-inch square thumbnail, so I figure they'd be all over that sort of thing!

I'm working on that. There's still some hope that a greyscale piece is in my future. Thanks!
