Believe it or not, this is the first Venom commission Ive done. Kinda strange, right? After all these years and probably a couple hundred commissions, this is the first Venom. Weird. Anyways, thats too bad because I had a really good time working on him. He's one of those characters that you can really put your own stamp on in terms of overall look.
I wasnt really sure what I wanted my Venom to look like, but I remembered an image I'd seen once by Simon Bisley. It looked almost like a gorilla had been taken over by the symbiote and I really liked that idea. It was different and kinda funky looking. This is sort of my take on that with the huge arms, long torso and kind of short legs. The face is a bit of a generic Venom though.
Anyways, this was a real fun one. I wouldnt mind working on the character some more.
