December 2010 Reader Art Gallery!

by  in Comic News Comment

Every week, we have six artists do sketches based on reader suggestions. The feature is called The Line It Is Drawn (check it out here). Well, once a month I am letting any reader who wants to share their OWN drawings send in one drawing apiece based on one of the previous topics that the Line It Is Drawn artists have used. I’ll feature the art with the artist’s name and the artist’s website (if any).

Here is our latest monthly reader art gallery!

Enjoy!

The art is posted in the order in which I received them!

Alex Holt’s drawing is based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “amalgamate two comic book characters” (click here to see what our resident artists did with that theme) Alex chose to combine Captain American and Gambit! Here is Alex’s website.


Sean McFarland also went with the amalgam theme, choosing to mix Hellboy with Cerebus! Here is Sean’s website.

Rufus Edge ALSO chose to go with the amalgam theme, choosing to mix Two-Face and the Hate Monger as Two-Hate! Says Rufus of the character:

Two Hate was an ordinary deeply racist man until he was horribly scarred and disfigured by an acid attack. Unable to see his own skin, he can no longer tell which race he belongs to and which group of people he’s supposed to hate, so he decides to flip a coin at midnight each day to decide whom he will attempt to mass-murder for the next 24 hours.

Here is Rufus’ website.


Tom Tung decided to go with the Line It Is Drawn theme of “mash-up/team-up comic book characters with Star Wars characters” (click here to see what our resident artists came up with for that theme). Here is Tom’s website.

Andy Hunter (who did not give me a website address) sent in two choices for the comic character/Star Wars character theme. I figured I’ll just use them both. I know I say not to send in multiple drawings, but now that I think about it, what the heck, it’s a whole MONTH, right? So if you want to send in more than one drawing in the future, go ahead. Just don’t go overboard. Keep it to 1-3. In any event, Andy went with a Scott Pilgrim/Star Wars mash-up and a Cyclops/Vader face-off.

Boykoesh Akkerman also went with the amalgam theme, choosing to envision the Cowardly Lion as a Green Lantern! Here is Boykoesh’s website.

Jason Welborn went with the comic book characters/Star Wars theme, choosing to mix the X-Men with the Star Wars characters. Here is Jason’s website.

Michael Magtanong went with the “team-up two halves of two famous couples” theme (click here to see what our resident artists came up with for the topic). Michael chose to team-up Hercules’ partner, Amadeus Cho, with Green Hornet’s partner, Kato. Check out Michael’s website here.

Finally, Manny Aguilera chose to go with the amalgam theme, as well, as he decided to mix Thor and Captain Marvel together! Check out Manny’s website here.


Thanks, everybody!! Great stuff this month! And a nice turnout!!

Feel free to start sending in pieces now for NEXT month’s Reader Art Gallery, which will go up on the second week in January! Remember, use any topic that has been featured on The Line It It Drawn (I’d prefer you use stuff from December’s editions, but I won’t hold you to that)! Just send a JPEG of your drawing to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com for inclusion in next month’s gallery!
