Carlitos' Toy Fund!!!

[Carlitos]

Waddup Y'alls, howzit going?!? ... I'd did these two pieces two or three months ago... actually, the 'Ikarus' piece I started a while back, but had lost it, and found it recently under a pile of books, so I decided I might as well finish it and give it a bit of color.

The Ikaris piece I had actually started doing when "the Eternals" series was coming out.... anything that is remotely 'Kirbyesque' I am DOWN with... I just love the chunky aesthetic that all of this character designs had... for some damn reason, you just never get bored of drawing characters that he designed.... my theory always boils down to the BIG shapes that he would use on everything... there's nothing subtle about Kirby's design sense, and that always makes for a great 'starting point' when doing one's take of someone else's characters.

The 'Hulk vs. Spidey" was a 'change of pace' piece.... at the time, I was knee-deep in designing the "Batman: Arkham Asylum" game, and mentally, I just needed to draw something a little different to switch 'brain-gears'.... I was probably looking at the Michael Golden "Marvel Fanfare" issue when I did this! ....I also love drawing on the grey paper because it forces you to think more about what you are drawing, since you really do need to add brighter areas and highlights to make it work, if not, the piece just turns out too dark.... so yeah, this is a good way to test out how well you know 'surface anatomy' :)

...aaaand anyway, anybody interested in contributing to the "Carlos Toy Fund', these two li'l bastards are for sale if any of you kind Ladies and Gentlemen are interested! (^_^) peace Y'allz Carlitos¬¬¬

I like, mad skills. That spidey is getting lost in front of that hulk though, should have paid more attention to line wieghts.

Hey Y'allz, thank you very much for the interest in these pieces! ...if I am not mistaken, the Spidey is already taken, BUT the other piece is still available, for anyone interested! (^_^)

Carlos, you're designing the Arkham Asylum game?! Nice! Looking forward to it.

Also, did you receive the scan of the Starfire sketch you drew for me? I sent it to the e-mail you gave me but I never heard a reply...
