The Rogues Gallery

There's been a lot of Marvel/DC movie news on the interwebs this week and it's had me on a superhero drawing kick.

I've always been a fan of Spidey's black outfit. Better silhouette and a lot more arachnid.

Of course, the outfit looks even better on Venom.

It's a shame they put a mask on Willam Dafoe. He'd have been much scarier with just a little bit of the Weta orc makeup.

The Vulture. Keep calm and carrion.

Your mind would be warped, too, if your diet consisted primarily of roadkill.

My second favorite superhero, The Man of Steely Gazes.

I think this was an inadvertent rip-off of an Alex Ross piece.

I'm surprised no one's done Bizarro in a feature film. He'd be a terrific tragic villain...

...especially if he has the proper backing.

Who wants to see this buddy comedy?

Killer Croc's always fun because, like The Lizard, he's basically half way to drawing a dinosaur.

They're like an old married couple, aren't they?

Two-Face. Who says he has to always be pissed off?

And finally, the distinguished Mr. Cobblepot. He uses his bird conservation efforts as a front for his criminal empire, but the truth is he can't stand birds. "There's bird shit everywhere! It's like nature's white out!!"

Hope you enjoyed this deluge of drawings. Happy Labor Day everyone! Three day weekend coming up, and that's cause for a cigar.

Wow! Really terrific drawings... I love Joker leaning on Superman, you really captured both of their personalities perfectly!
Haha, I agree with you about Green Goblin! It reminds me of Weird Al's song about the Spider-man movie.
'An' he's ridin' around on that glider thing,
An' he's throwin' those weird pumpkin bombs,
An' he's wearin' that dumb Power Rangers mask,
But he's scarier without it on.'

Awesome drawings, Austin! Love the Joker and Superman one. All awesome, can't wait to see more!

Austin Madison said...

Ivan- Thanks! The Joker is the man of a thousand grins.

Erik- haha, the same song was going through my head as I did the drawing!

William- Thanks! A lot of good reaction to that one; I may have to go back in to ink and color it.
