dont have them on me (likely thrown away). but consider myself good at drawing simple cartoons (pretty much newspaper comics or some cartoons....comics are trickier for me.

Im not good with from memory but give me a garfield, peanuts, etc I can recreate the image.

@power_struggle55 I'm looking forward to seeing your art. I can barely draw a box from memory.

@flanders Your Mister Freeze in the original post looks like it was done by a much more experienced artist than the other works. If I was your agent I would say figure out what you did there and play to your strengths. Have you ever looked at Bob Burdens' work..i.e. Flaming Carrot comics? I feel like he could be an inspiration for you.

@EbayMafia that Mr freeze took a fraction of the time as the other two as well. I think this is my best work though, I still prefer using a pencil instead of a tablet. I haven't looked closely at any Flaming carrot. I'll look some over and maybe try to recreate one.

@flanders Bob Burden does a lot with a little. You can just Image Google "Bob Burden Sketches". Notice how each character has a different facial expression with just a couple of lines:

I agree and would freeze that portrait where it stands today… no more is needed.

That is why I called it out in my original post.

@flanders I will use a music / musician analogy that you might appreciate. There are musicians with impeccable technique. Typically they start relatively young and/or had immense natural talent (yes, natural talent is absolutely a thing). Then there are those who don’t have as full an inventory of techniques but can tell their story regardless.

The latter usually still work to improve their technique. Because technique only can expand, not limit, expression. BUT they also tell their stories using their existing strengths.

The Mr Freeze had a great use of lines, color and space. It may be partly because you left it incomplete that it stands out… so like what ebay said, I might suggest testing that approach with other interpretations. Just don’t tie them too strictly back to what you’re referencing… leave them as representations that stand alone.

It is a very cool image!

Here's some sketches I did in the last year.

I’m no artist and haven’t drawn anything for years but was inspired a few minutes ago by this thread. Figured would start with something that’s been extinct for thousands of years. That way less likely to be criticized too much and all my mistakes will be less glaring (I mean, not like we know what these realllly looked like, right???)

The only thing I do recall (IIRC) is to always pronate the wrists. As you can see it took me a couple attempts to at least get THAT part right.

For no real good reason I've been looking for classic covers to reimagine with Swamp Thing.

This was first on my phone. Not the best experience with using the small phone screen, or color. Honestly I lost interest in it and moved on.





My second attempt was with a new Samsung tablet / pen combo. Much easier to get details and the larger screen feels more natural to "real" drawing for me.





I haven't really taken the time to draw in decades, but I hope to get more of these done as time allows.

Here is the finished comic book cover I was working on this past week. From left to right, the characters are; Shadowman, Punk Mambo and Baron Samedi. Sharp eyed Shadowman fans will notice I took artistic license with Baron Samedi. Baron Samedi is an actual figure in the Voodoo religion, so I adjusted the valiant figure to better represent (imo) the traditional figure. Hope some of you like it.

Thanks to @flanders for this thread. Inspired me to try my hand at sketching a comic character yesterday.

Reminds me of what we might get if we had George Clooney play Superman after a few rounds of roids and a Leno chin enhancement.

Reference was from the 80th Anniversary Edition cover if it looks familiar.

Rarely have time to do sketch covers due to other literary and artistic pursuits, but I whipped this one out the commission about seven years ago...




A book store owner wanting one of my dragon sketches allowed me complete freedom to compose it in any manner I chose, then shipped me the comic. After looking over the comic I decided to incorporate the main character in the style of the interior art. About a month later I handed the finished work to him in person at a convention in Dallas in case he wanted something else or wasn't happy with the work as completed. I'm pleased to report the owner was quite happy.
