Here is a little sketch I kicked out recently for Marvel's Puma. I think that if Marvel gets away from their ' reboot ' mentality of the common household characters, they would be able to expand into really cool and original depths with underestimated/under developed characters like this one...
dudes cut, I'll give him that. You seem to have a grasp on anatomy, so I won't say anything there. What I will say is draw lighter! Your pencil lines are far too deep and dark. What you want to do is build up line confidence, so that every line you put down is exactly as you want it initially which will make your work quicker and aesthetically pleasing. Hope that heeeeelps.

Yeah, a lot of people agree with both sides of the coin. I have a reason as to why I do it. It's so that I don't sluff off on the detail work, so that I don't do like some and cut corners just to get the job done.
It's a failsafe to keep me from turning in quick and crappy work.

Really neat. I have a critique when it comes to anatomy. The lower arm (with the radial and ulnar) muscles are incorrect. They are not bi-lobed muscles like that. There are the the carpi radii ulnaris and radialis on both sides, yes, but they're not that bulky.

Yeah, I'm glad you noticed that. I did that on purpose for the feral state of the character to have a more powerful cat-like forearm strike. He gains like 60 pounds when he converts from human to feral.
If you notice, I popped the knuckles out of whack a little bit too, for that same effect...more of a feral mutation for the character.

Been a while since I've posted anything so, here they are...
A couple of quick sketches with pencil and a sharpie, getting the artistic mojo working after a heavy lunch the other day.
This one was another drop in the hat for my daughter after she saw an old episode of the 90's x-men series on toon disney and asked me to draw it for her...she is 4, hense the 'g ' rated version and cartoony style, rather than my over developed muscular version, as in the Puma post.
Is it just me or does Doc Oc look like Roy Obison?
