Thor, by Jonathan MacFarlane

I'm going to do a "real" submission later, but this image came into my head and struck me as funny so I doodled it. Took 15 minutes with a ballpoint pen and a sketchbook.

Thanos by Clayton Johnston

As much as I enjoy drawing Thanos' face, I couldn't resist focusing on the Infinity Gauntlet. • @krakadoom

Thanos, by Jonathan MacFarlane

This was done completely on my iPad, in Sketchbook Pro. It took way longer to draw than it would on paper, but coloring was way easier than in Photoshop w/ a mouse. Not entirely pleased with Thanos' head, but all in all it came out better than I was expecting.

Thanos By Jess Kirby

This is my version of when Thanos gets his dirty mits on the cosmic cube.  Obviously I replaced it with Rubik's cube, because that's what I do.

Sgt. Rock by Joey Jarin

Sgt. Rock by Aaron Walls

I decided to go with a gritty approach to show the chaos of the battle field. Rock rubs me as the John Wayne to Nick Fury's Clint Eastwood just as tough but Rock is slightly more no nonsense.

Next Week's Topic: Thanos

We start posting tomorrow.

Daredevil, by Jonathan MacFarlane

Yeah, I'm late. I'm very slow at coloring in Photoshop. I'm slow because I hate it, and I hate it because I'm slow. It's a vicious cycle. Anyway, this was inspired by an old poster I found for a production of Faust.

Sgt. Rock by Clayton Johnston

I like that the thing which differentiates Sgt. Rock from other comic soldiers is his frequently missing sleeves and various signs of battle damage. Plus his cigarettes distinguish him from Nick Fury.

I experimented with crosshatching to give it a gritty texture. I used a brush pen and a mechanical pen.

We start posting on Sunday.

Daredevil 2

I was still playing with the idea of Daredevil today, and decided to turn it into another post. I skipped pencils, and instead sketched it out with a cheap, red pen and a black Sharpie. The suit and skin color were added digitally. • @krakadoom

DareDevil by Jess Kirby

If this looks like a bunch of ripped up pieces of paper with DareDevil drawn on them, that's good, because that's what it is.  On the other side of these little pieces of ripped paper is one large drawing of "the man without fear", but I didn't like it so I ripped it up.  Instead of being wasteful I scribbled on the pieces of paper.   I figured I'd just go with all them, that way if you didn't like one you might like another one.

The Dare-Devil by Clayton Johnston

This was a lot of fun. I decided to go with a more light-hearted take on Daredevil, so I used his original costume and went with a circus poster theme.

I don't use a brush pen often, so this was a fun experiment. My friend Kevin Steele inspired me to try using one again, and I borrowed his method for rendering DD's whip. • @krakadoom

JLU Batman by Jonathan MacFarlane

I had a bit of a time with this week's theme. I'm not really a fan of McDuffie, and he didn't really have a memorable effect on anything besides cartoons, as far as I could tell from poking around online. But, I do love Batman, and Batman was on JLU, so: JLU Batman. You may be asking why Batman has red highlights instead of the usual blue, and it's because I couldn't find a blue marker.
