SHAZAM ROUGH / CU



Here is further development on one of the Shazam (Captain Marvel) doodles that i had posted earlier. This is final rough and clean up. I am going to color this up next and have some ideas that will complete the illo nicely. (By the way,...the slug guy he's holding is his arch villian Mr. Mind. I really like the notion that his hatred of Captain Marvel stems from the Captain not taking him seriously.I wanted this illo to reflect that.)

You know I have a weakness for men in tights, especially when they're obviously involved in Freudian imagery which Dr. Wertham tried banning from comics many years ago. But enough about me......

Great job, I think you really captured the feel of those wonderful Beck/Schaffenberger Shazam comics... when superheroes could be fun. Really like the clean up, nice line weights, and it retains the life of the pencils. Look forward to the colors.

I can't say enough about you doing you're own thing and finding the direction you want to go with you're work. It's starting to materialize and I'm glad you're putting it up here. Good stuff K.B.

Now back to phallic discussions....

I'll be happy to continue on that track -

Shazam is obviously laughing at Mr. Mind's lack of genitals. I'd be pissed too. For all eternity.

I can't compare this to the comics like Darryl, but I do like the look and style - probably because within this close knit group of artists, I feel you have some real originality going here.

I look forward to the next one!

Man great stuff Kev. Your setting the bar awefuly high, darn you! If I could draw lines like these, I'd never leave the house. No seriously amazing stuff man. Can't wait to see the final.

Ha ha..awesome! I had totally forgotten about the slug character till now. Man...what a head rush of childhood nerdom.

For some weird ass reason I prefer the pencils. I'm a jerk ass I know. If that makes you angry, close your eyes and zen out on your happy waterfall place ;)
