A peek at dragons (before inks) from my upcoming space comic
X-Men cover idea/sketch I like manic energy in my comics
Hulk cover idea/sketch
INKING: Self-commissioned Marvel cover—Spider-man vs. Doctor Octopus. Some perspective to tweak in photoshop but mostly there. Coloring is the next step.
DRAWING: Self-commissioned Marvel cover—Spider-man vs. Doctor Octopus. More to draw. Inks next week perhaps…
Spider-Man vs. Doctor Octopus
Gave myself a commision to do a Marvel cover to get back into superhero practice- Spider-man vs. Doctor Octopus. Kind of like this composition. Drawing, Inking and color next…
Was inspired by the Ross Andru covers I liked as a kid. Dynamic battles in the sky.

From comic drawing box, c.1983….”the Hulk”
Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wolverine & the Silver Surfer are my favorite Marvel characters. I don’t know who the Hulk is about to battle here. I think they are two guys I found from Handbook to the Marvel Universe for the Hulk to smash.
I miss Hulk-speak. Where he is simple and speaks of himself in the third person. That was the magic of that character-just causing wreckage and being simple. Once they made him more articulate, they lost me and the magic of that character. Now he seems like just another ordinary strong guy, not the Hulk.
From comic drawing box, c.1983….Tigorr & Nimbus from “The Omega Men”
Art-wise, my big favorites at Marvel were John Byrne, Frank Miller and Paul Smith. Also liked George Perez and Keith Giffen who were doing ground-breaking stuff over at DC - The Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes and this series, The Omega Men. It seemed different at the time. you got a comic on better paper stock featuring a space team. I followed for about 6 issues then checked out. I enjoyed drawing the characters more than reading about them. The story lost me.
Still, I gotta admit. Space teams are fun to draw.
