I have always liked the Marvel villain The Absorbing Man. He went toe to toe with Thor, The Hulk and the Avengers. One of my favorite Avengers stories is one by Roger Stern and John Byrne. All Creel wants to do is escape and find some peace and the Avengers thwart him at every turn. "Damn you eyes!" he cried. Always stuck with me. Great character, will probably revisit it later and make a full blown piece of art with Creel.
Darkseid just thrown in for good measure. All sketches done with Noodler's Ink.

It has been wayyyy too long since I painted a landscape painting. Been focusing too much on one aspect of my art lately. Trying to keep in mind what my Fundamental's teacher at the Academy said constantly, cheesy as it was, it was true "variety is the spice of life and the spice of the artist".
We went toDick Blick the other day and found a bonus buy on some 4x5 watercolor sheets in a 25 pack. About 10 cents apiece when it's all said and down. So I wanted to play around and see how the paper held up. Not bad.
Dr. Strange is done on cold press and that other character is done on hot press.
