Great Thing! Simple but captures him in a fight (or running after Johnny) completely!

If you don't have the time it's okay and I understand
But if you do have the time would you be interested in coloring mine for me?

I was in the process of fixing my Inks on this with Cs3 when my computer decided to crap out on me....when I finally had my computer fixed no matter how many times I tried to reinstall cs3 it kept failing on me.

Thanks for the request. But unfortunately, I have to decline.

All my time goes into the comic book deadlines.

Keep on drawing!

No. I haven't.
But I have drawn Teen Titans Go for 4 years. So I've been working in an animated style.

Cool, you should take a crack at that medium though, there should be some mula to be made. And i admire your work ethic, you manage a few titles at once and ya deliver in all of them Grade A art and story, ya may not be mention a lot like Mad who has a cool style but no fidelity to commitment, but your known by those that matter thanks for making a mark that others can follow. Ride da lighting, Bro.

Sweet Auntie Petunia's boy never looked better! Great job, sir!

Forgive me a fannish moment, but now I have to see how you do Kitty Pryde (since she and Ben are two of my favorite characters). ^_^

I normally don't like any one from the fantastic 4 but I really like your take on the Thing. I like the contrasting colors between him and the background color.

Really love the running pose, nicely balanced and he feels heavy.
Plus, gotta adore the tiny bits of rocks and dust falling.

IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!

This is a very nice clean take on Mr. Grimm. I particularly like the "halo" around him. Quite dynamic.

it sucks - everytime I see 'The Thing', I always think of this question that was asked in Kevin Smith's 'MallRats'. If you've seen the movie, you understand...other than that though, this is neat. This kind of reminds me of some of the big hulk-sh characters I draw on occasion

Dennis Miller made asked the same question of Rob Liefeld when he appeared on Dennis Miller's early 90's syndicated talk show. Rob was on the day Youngblood #1 came out.
Dennis just riffed on pretty much every superhero. And, of course, brought up the question about The Thing's.... thing.

Well, the Thing's armor reminds me of something reptilian, so like many (If not ALL) reptiles, The Thing's "boy-bits", are probably INTERNAL! So when super villains try to beat him by hitting him in the groin the only person they hurt is themselves!
