Thor vs Surfer by ChristopherStevens Thor vs Surfer by ChristopherStevens
A revisioning of a classic cover. I tried to talk Ben into doing #3, but no sale. Oh well, he's aces in my book and I was happy to do this one. I zoomed in a bit on the figures and it's cropped more than the original, but it still keeps the vibe of it I think. Trying to do justice to a John Buscema cover is virtually impossible, but it was fun trying.

Prismacolor and Copic with watercolor paint on vellum bristol board.

Thor and Silver Surfer Marvel Comics

Awesome piece... really like Thor's expression... anger/worry mixed... I think he realizes the Surfer is out of his pay grade, which is saying something.

There character work is top notch as always but I have to say that the background is what really draws me into the image. Great stuff all round :thumbsup:

Fanastic shape and form, especially on Thor. The background has really nice subtle variety and texture too. Not a giant fan of the close-cropped composition, but it's still an amazing image. It's crazy how smooth you got gradients on the Surfer's board. Aye verily!
