Marvel Tryout 2
The Hulk 30.1 script was not my first tryout script with Marvel, but it is the first project that I completed in the time frame I set for myself. The time frame was meant to show professionalism with the material. I went monkey nuts with the enthusiasm to draw for Marvel and threw all my years of education and training out the window. I did excellent research, but I didn't do solid designs before penciling. I did a lot of designs on page. r For instance, the plane featured is a Lun Ekranoplan. The first image of it is based on a photograph -- I made some minor adjustments on the photograph, since it pretty much matched my thumbnail, but I should have drew it from scratch, because it looks quirky. I didn't use perspective I faked it, and I REALLY can't fake things AT ALL. I resisted some of my worst habits -- like SOMETIMES drawing Kirby fingers on characters, but I'm sure there are some graphic gaffs. I completed seven pages in five days which was a goal for me to see how I would handle a deadline. I did very well, was very happy with my timeliness. There are always some things I like about my art, things I feel like I captured well. So here 'tis.
