Banner hulks out


I don't think I've ever seen a really nice sequence of Banner turning into the Hulk. It's always pretty much just a before and after kind of thing. In my mind it's a horrific, painful event. Kind of like the transformation in An American Werewolf in London. Except with magic, stay-on pants.

I like the sketchiness of this...on a sketchblog it's good!! Looks sore!

Moondog said...

Heh, that's great. Really nice line, what'd you ink it with?
Reminds me of that brilliant Bisley Lobo art where he turns into a dame with one massive arm and one teeny one.
Also: I too am wearing magic stay-on pants.

Eeeeeeeewwwwwwwww. Nicely done sir.

My pants never stay on. Always ready for action

Will; .....really? That was a terrrrrrible joke.

Stephen Thompson said...

Yeah, tried to avoid doing a finished piece thing this week. It was drawn with a dip pen, a Hunt 101 I think. It's my go-to dip pen, I call him Mr. Pointy.

Will Sliney said...

COme one, that was a Shalvey level joke.
Im gonna go out there and put in a Thompson Request.

That was waaaaay below Shalvey level my friend.

I dunno Thompson, i don't find this especially 'loose', no more so than the other pieces i mean. The lines are nice and loose alright, but your Swamp Thing was just as loose, just had a lot of solid black.

Nice work Mr. Pointy. You deserve a medal.

Stephen Thompson said...

Oh I didn't mean it was drawn any looser, just that I wasn't adding background elements or composing it to look like a printable illustration. More that it was just a picture you might actually find in my sketchbook.

Moondog said...

'Mr. Pointy' is a Buffy reference, right? That better have been a Buffy reference.

this is great, really like it i saw a good hulk transformation cant for the life of me remember where, think it was an oil painting too. it wasn't graphic though, i agree a American werewolf in London would be cool, best transformatin imo is this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBUxW1OhTmg

Stephen Thompson said...

Yep, that's a Buffy ref. I would have been shocked and appalled if you hadn't gotten that.

Fran Johnston said...

Moondog said...

Great idea and expertly handled, Thombles. Hope you get a shot at implementing the idea in actual Marvel continuity someday.
