February 2011 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!

First up is Sean McFarland, who has since become the regular fill-in artist for The Line It Is Drawn! Sean’s drawing is based on the “draw comic book characters as animals” theme (see what our artists did with that theme here). Here is Leobo vs. Kitten Wolverine! I believe Mike Shirley requested this back when it was a Line It Is Drawn topic. Here is Sean”s website.

Josh, AKA “JR the Monster Boy,” did a drawing based on last week’s Comic Book Cover Homages theme (see what our artists did with that theme here). Josh did not give me a website, but I was able to track it down – you can check out his website here.


Rufus Edge’s drawing is based on the “Comic Book Characters Mashed Up With Movies From the Past Five years” theme (see what our artists did with that theme here), choosing to go with a Jimmy Corrigan meets the Hangover idea. Here is Rufus’ website.

Andy Hunter’s drawing is based on the “comic book characters/Star Trek mash-up/team-up theme” (see what our artists did with that theme here). Andy decided to go with the ‘lil BRPB go to a Star Trek convention! Check out Andy’s website here.

Finally, Jason Welborn also went with the comic book characters/Star Trek theme, choosing to see what would happen if the original Star Trek series visited Apokolips! Poor red shirt guy! Here is Jason’s website.


Thanks, everybody!! Another great month of drawings!

Feel free to start sending in pieces now for NEXT month’s Reader Art Gallery, which will go up on the second week in March! Remember, use any topic that has been featured on The Line It It Drawn (I’d prefer you use stuff from Februay’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! Feel free to send up to two drawings, if you’d like! The deadline is March 10th at 3pm Pacific time! I will try to do more posts to promote this, as turnout has been relatively low the last two months (but the quality makes up for the lack of quantity).
