WifePick #2: Storm

A quick one today. My wife has never seen Storm with the Mohawk, but that's how I was introduced to her after sifting through my older brothers comics when he wasn't home. She always seemed much more badass in that incarnation.

The Line it is Drawn #69: Never before done Team-ups!

Ahh! So here is my second tryout piece for CBR's The Line it is Drawn !

The theme is character team-ups that have never happened. There were so many awesome choices, I had to combine a few. My inital line up was:

Iron Fist, Wolverine, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommando, Atomic Robo, Super Dinosaur, Snake Eyes, Batman, and TMNT. 

                                                                     VS.

Doomsday, Juggernaut, Bane, Amazo, and Super Skrull

1: That's a lot of dudes.
2: That's a lot of dudes I have never drawn.
3: I need a lot of paper.

Layout:
Sorry for the crappy photo, but hopefully you can figure it out what's kinda going on. I wanted the
Villians to be in the center since there are fewer and most of them are quite large folks.

Pencils:
Most of the time, I am a pretty rough penciller and I often jump between inks and pencils once the image is slightly more than roughed out. It's messed me up in the past but it's how I feel most comfortable working at the moment. You will notice some blocky building type things in the back, my intention was to have Batman and TMNT silhouettes on top of them, but time got the better of me here and they were removed. Also, you might say Bane is small here, but that's in comparison to Doomsday and Juggernaut, both of whom I like depicted as giant physical threats.

Colors:


I am still a newbie at coloring, so a lot of effects and such are not blended as well as I would like. I kept Super Dino and Atomic Robo the monotone color because of an accident that I ended up liking. The Mist/smoke thing was a excuse to play with some photoshop and as I mentioned before, time got away from me here, so I had to eliminate the background.

Well, that's it for this round. Thanks for checking this out and please consider voting for me to become a regular contributor to this fine assemblage of artists!
