Superhero Elementary–Picture Day: War Machine

Spoiler alert…I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron on Friday afternoon. And I will be going again this week with some friends. Excited to see War Machine finally in the mix here. Had to work on this right away. Yes, he’s smiling for the camera under his helmet.

THE AVENGERS – THOR

Today’s Avengers post… THOR!!! Yep, still have a bunch of classic Stan Lee / Jack Kirby issues of Thor I found at a garage sale when I was 8. So awesome! My grandparents bought a box of comics for me when we were on a family trip to Illinois and Michigan in 1984. A bunch of old Superman, World’s Finest, horror comics, and a whole bunch of Journey Into Mystery issues guest-starring Hercules. They were my favorites of the bunch, probably because I was really into all the Norse and Greek mythology at that time.
Just a few days left for the movie, can’t believe I have to wait until Sunday:(

AVENGERS – HAWKEYE

Day 2 of my Avengers countdown. When I was about 7 years old, one of my favorite comic heroes was Hawkeye. Not sure why. I think I just liked his purple costume and the really cool trick arrows he often used. I had a bunch of Avengers issues with him on that team, but never in a major role. And then he split to form the West Coast Avengers. I thought that was really awesome, so I collected the Limited Series and the first few issues of the regular series. But that title became boring really quick, so I moved on to X-Men, Spider-man and the Punisher.

Odin!

I’m starting the year by wrapping up some older projects that I never finished in 2011. Here is Odin, this was really rough and I think I became bored halfway through work on it. I sat down and powered through it last night. I’ve also added  a few of  the others from the series.

Captain America vs. Red Skull

My idea this summer was to illustrate something from each summer movie I went to. I started with Thor way back in May. I did make it to “The Hangover 2” and “X-Men: First Class” before my vacation in June. I really fell behind. So I picked up where I left off last month and wanted to make a few new pieces from “Harry Potter” and “Cowboys vs Aliens”.

First up…Captain America. I want to combine this with a Red Skull piece that I’m still working on. I love working with the iconic shield, so I made sure to get that in there. The Red Skull had to have the cosmic cube, so there is a preview of that here too. More to come…

Happy THORsday!

I kicked-off my summer movie season last night with a preview of Thor. This was one of my favorite comic characters growing up. When I was 9, I joined my grandparents on their way to a garage sale. I ended up with a big box of old Marvel, DC and Dell comic books. My favorites in the bunch were some old Stan Lee/Jack Kirby issues of Thor and the Avengers. I treated them like gold and studied the art and story continuously as a child. They are still stored away in my collection, carefully placed in poly bags with backer boards. I decided to start a few illustrations inspired by these memories. Here is the Mighty Thor and his step-brother, Loki. I’ll have a few more to post in the next few days.
