Marvel Villains Charity Piece -- Finally Finished


I'm not entirely happy with how it came out, owing to the piecemeal way in which I put it together and the fact that I stumbled badly on the inks in a lot of places. I gave the white correction ink a real workout and felt like I was sculpting in a few places. That's what I get for trying to fit in so many characters in a 6 1/2" by 10" space. Even so, I think it's a fun picture and there's a lot of things about it I like. I do wish I could have fit a few more characters in, the Mad Thinker and his Awesome Android, Annihilus, Nightmare and The Lizard, among others. The important thing is that someone likes it enough to bid on it. This will be on auction next month for the Bridgewater, NJ PBA's charity fund.

You can see some of the artwork that will be auctioned here. Artists who have donated artwork include Mark Schultz, Sergio Aragones, Stuart Immonen, Ryan Sook, Dean Haspiel, Don Rosa, Mark Chiarello, Stan Sakai, George Perez, Mike Oeming, Tim Sale, Zander Cannon, Chris Sprouse, Joe Sinnott, Brian Bolland and Walt Simonson, among many others.

I'll post a notice when the auctions go live.

Excelsior, y'all.
