Marshall Art Studio: Illustration Friday

[Back to top]

Illustration Friday


Repurposed, no ... refurbushed art. The drawing is part of a failed 24-Hour Comic (24 pages in 24 hours). It took me 24 hours just to get 11 pages done. By 6:30 AM, I was bleary-eyed and incapable of making even the most basic decisions. This panel shows how most fictional characters are really just different views of the writer.

Great! You know, Dave, I think this could work the other way round too. I mean, you could be taking off the everyday "masks" and find a Spiderman or any other superhero under the regular human face. We all have multiple identities and though I doubt most of us could do superhero stuff, people accomplish a lot more difficult things at times than just climbing a building or saving the world...:) Permanent Link

Blogger bill zeman says:

pretty cool - great drawing too, and I think about how most comic book artists just draw the same heroic face all the time for any character and just rely on the costume to tell who is who Permanent Link

What the Heck is Illustration Friday?

Think of it as a voluntary, client-free playground for illustrators. A topic is posted every Friday morning. Participants from around the world create, post and share their interpretations.

No Client? Why Bother?

At this stage of my career, I need a weekly public exercise to draw anything at all.

Freshness Dating

    Old art, lifted straight from the archives with no current modifications
  • Refurbished
    Previously-viewed art, modified and enhanced for current times
  • Alt Theme
