Some Danger....girls...

This week's choice(s) for Fan Request Friday are Danger Girl and She-Hulk. Both are characters I've never really attempted before so they seemed ideal to try. J. Scott Cambell (the creator of Danger Girl) has always been a favorite artist of mine - I'm not sure I did Abbey Chase justice or not, but it was fum tryiong to decide what to do with her. I have a stack of 'close' but not 'close enough' poses that I rejected before settling on this one. I'm still not completely satisfied, but time was running out and I still have freelance to tackle before bed.

The other reason why time was short is due to the daytrip I took to San Diego for the San Diego Comic-Con (or whatever it's called these days). I had a great time hooking up with old friends and making a few new ones. Next year we'll ahve to plan a longer trip so it does feel like so much like running a gauntlet.

Just a Minute...

Once again I'm running late, but this time I actually have  a good excuse. My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend in Portland, Oregon with my son and his partner. We've never been up that way before, but I'm sure it won't be the last time.

For this week's Fan Request Friday someone suggested the Silk Spectre (not the first time she's been suggested either) and it occurred to me that I've never drawn any of the Watchmen  characters. I'm not sure which Silk Spectre they meant, but I decided to opt for the original Silk Spectre - Sally Jupiter. I thought that Carla Gugino was the perfect actress to play her in the film and would've loved it if there had been more of her in it  - yeah, I know she was barely in the comic, but I much preferred the era of the Minutemen then the later group of heroes.

I'm going to SDCC later this week, though I'm not exactly sure what day, but if you happen to see me wandering around, struggling through the crowds, say "hi".

Something a little Freaky...

This week's Fan Request is Freakazoid...hopefully some of you will remember him (other than the person who suggested him, of course). His show was on and off the air before many had a chance to see it -  including myself. Despite it's short run it seems to have some fans still - maybe it's the Bruce Timm connection?

Running a little late...

...well, actually quite a bit late.
But I have an excuse - I swear. I found myself knee deep in storyboard revisions and it took a lot longer than expected (doesn't it always?) and add that to trying to spend as much extra time as I could with the family and all I can say is thank God for three day weekends.

This week it seemed like a good idea to address one of the most consistent suggestions I get. Not only has this been a request every Friday since I started Fan Request Friday, but I also get asked all the time to draw these characters for commissions and whenever I'm at some event. Which is a good thing. It's nice to know these particular incarnations of these characters have left such an indelible mark on so many people.

So here are Wolverine, Kitty and Rogue ala X-Men: Evolution.

And as a bonus offering (since I was so late) I'm also including another character that is suggested quite often: Link from the Legend of Zelda.

I hope all of you had a good 4th of July!
