The hardest thing here was deciding on a skin tone I was happy with, I compromised and went halfway between film and comic book version. Drax is a funny one, I didn’t think I’d like the character (and visually he’s so different from the Drax the Destroyer I grew up with) but he really grows on you.
I appreciate the effort that has gone in to making Rocket a fleshed out character and not just window dressing in the films. I admittedly struggled with his face here because of my no nose approach and the nose does kind of make him but I think you can still tell who he is.
So I’m finally cramming a little extra time in to draw the new series of Marvel sketch cards that I’m working on. I’ve got the full list of characters already planned out and I’ve managed to even ink three of them, just colouring. As with all the Marvel characters, the version I pick is based purely on my mood that day and today was Baby Groot!
I really enjoy drawing the Marvel characters because in their traditional form (I just mean the costumes I’m most familiar with) they’re so colourful and fun and when you put them together like this I think they just look cool.
I did these last year and since then some of them have gone their seperate ways (I might have a few of them still).
I should do another series of these – what characters do I need to add???
I feel I missed an opportunity to have him holding a coffee cup, Thor drinking coffee and smashing the cup is pretty much the most charming thing to come out of those first two Thor films. They were very lucky with Hemsworth, I’m not sure anyone else could have played him so well.
I did take liberties with the costume, it needed a little bit of colour and I added the leather parts to break up the design. I’m really happy with this, I think it’s probably the only way to draw Thor for me now LOL.
After yesterday’s Iron Man I decided to go straight to the biggest and burliest of the Avengers and draw Hulk, the only problem is I think I made him too small LOL.
Compared to my usual drawing he’s a massive… ummmm… well Hulk but I’ve been playing around drawing these big burly characters and looking at the pencils for all the rest he’s kind of small, which I’m going to have to rectify.
Even though I have no real interest in the upcoming Infinity War film I am vaguely interested in revising the Marvel universe following this:
I’ve got all the early films on blu-ray (for now) and I think all the rest except obviously Black Panther are all on Netflix so it shouldn’t be too much of a struggle. The timing though for Panther might be tricky depending on its release dates etc. It actually wouldn’t make a bad weekly podcast if I could find someone to do it with.
Anyway at the very least I might draw stuff from each of the films if I do end up watching them and because some of them are big muscle types my usual spaghetti arms might not cut it so I’m practising with some of the larger guys. Obviously Tony Stark isn’t huge but the Mark I is so that’s where I’m starting.
