30 Minute Warm up: Man Thing
I'm trying to do some quick warm ups before I get started on the days work. We'll see if I can keep them up.
This one took me about 30 minutes, maybe a few less. Sketched quickly with blue pencil, and then inked with the Staedtler Mars Graphic 3000 duo. It's a great sketching brush pen. I'm trying to keep these warm ups quick for a few reasons. One, I have to get to the work on the table and Two, I want to draw something from the gut. No thought or planning or toiling over the thought that it isn't cool enough. I just want to let the hand start moving around the paper and see what happens.
Today was Man Thing. The Marvel version of Swamp Thing...I think. I don't really know anything about this character. But I was listening to Bullpen Bulletins and someone mentioned that it would be cool if I drew this guy. I thought it would be fun to try.
And, don't forget to check the side bar for the new Episode of Around Comics.
