October 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!

Pablo Agurcia’s drawing is based on the Line It It Drawn theme of “team-up a historical figure with a comic book character” (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Pablo chose to team-up Mahatma Gandhi with Union Jack! Check out Pablo’s website here.

Rachael Stott’s drawing is based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “comic book characters in different time periods” (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Rachael chose to draw the Fantastic Four in around 1700-1800 England. Check out Rachael’s website here.

Isiah Shackelford’s drawing is, I think, based on the aforementioned “team-up a historical figure with a comic book character” theme, with this Angel/Nelly mash-up. Check out Isiah’s website here.


Chaz Folgar is now a resident The Line It Is Drawn artist, but before he got the “promotion,” he already finished work on this piece, which was based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “comic book characters with literary figures” (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Chaz chose to draw Mike Allred’s Madman dancing along with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein Monster, while Dick Briefer’s humorous take on Frankenstein watches on. Check out Chaz’s website here.

Rufus Edge’s drawing is also based on the “comic book characters with literary figures” theme. Rufus is teaming up Doctor Strange with Sherlock Holmes (in his typical offbeat style, of course). Check out Rufus’ website here.


Douglas Nelson’s drawing is based on the “comic book characters/TV show mash-up” theme (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Douglas decided to mash-up Lost with Secret Wars. Check out Douglas’ website here.

Jason Welborn’s drawing is based on the “comic book characters/TV show mash-up” theme (click here to see what our resident artists drew for a special edition of that theme based just on suggestions by comic book writer Peter David). Jason decided to do Laverne and Shirley, just with Thanos and Silver Surfer! Check out Jason’s website here.

Finally, Michael Magtanong’s drawing is ALSO based on the “comic book character/TV show” theme. He decided to have Granny Goodness star in Golden Girls! Check out Michael’s website here.

Thanks a lot for the great artwork, folks! This was a nice turnout, but I think I will make sure to promote future installments even MORE so we can get even MORE cool pieces for future installments! Feel free to start sending in pieces now for NEXT month’s Reader Art Gallery, which will go up on the second Thursday in November! Remember, use any topic that has been featured on The Line It It Drawn (I’d prefer you use stuff from October’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!
