Hellboy… IN SPACE!

Hah!

Spent a bit too much time on this one.

I’ll leave it at this for today. 

Off to work!

Sunday Doodles!

I liked last week’s afternoon sketching so much that I’m bringing it back this week. Throw some suggestions in the answer box! (I’ll pick 2 arbitrarily based on if I’ve read anything with the character or not)

Martian Mantunter Re-Redesign, digital painting. 
I decided to take another look at a redesign I did 4-ish years ago. It was liked well enough, but what it got me thinking about how shape shifting in comics and cartoon tend to go with the blobby mass thing and how that rarely convinced me of how clothes came into appearance or how bone structure would even work.
Then it hit me that to make a Martian Manhunter work in the real world and what i came to was essentially the most highly advances and adaptive Cephalopod ever. He’d be like an octopus with a million string like tentacles all being able to merge,and change pigmentation or density at will.He could harden himself or make himself nearly intangible by loosening each and every one of it’s tentacles and fitting though something the size of a pin-hole. 
He could transform to the point where he’s indistinguishable from a human, but in his superhero form He lets it hang a bit looser. Letting the millions of tentacles take the shape of a superhero costume, but not hiding it’s weirdness. The Mark on his forehead is his own reminder of the Red Planet he once knew as his home.

The Puerto Rican Spider-Man, digital painting.
That “half latino” thing always bothered me. His name’s Morales? That’s Puerto Rican. Just let us have a Spider-Man gosh darn it.

TFPrime Megatron or Echo from Marvel!

Because I haven’t watched TF prime, but I have read stories with Echo in them.

Why not all 3?


Sunday Doodles.

I wanna do a couple of warm-up sketches, but I don’t feel like thinking about who to draw.

Any suggestions?
