Ok, now back to work, your retirement days are officially over :-)

I said UNEMPLOYMENT, not retirement. Retirement sounds OLD!!!!

Thanks for posting the picture, JB. I always love to see "behind the scenes" shots like this. It looks really cool so far!

Huh. Looks like a scene from an old AVENGERS comic drawn by John Byrne, but from a different angle. Cool.

(Did anyone else have the Aerosmith song come into their head when they saw the title of this topic?)

And a different century!

JB,

This is a wonderful almost complete commission!!!  :-)

I have a question regarding the Absorbing Man's powers.

In the past, I've noticed that he grows in size, even if his opponent does not have the ability. Is this a power that the Absorbing Man just have?

Thanks

JB, I really appreciate you posting WIPs. I learn a lot about your process by seeing these.

I think the biggest "mindblown" thing I've learned is you put down your perspective grids first. Wow.

Oh, about the Absorbing Jr. jokes and replies - that has to be an old joke, but it was the first time I "heard" it - laughing at the joke and every reply - thanks guys. You got me good. I needed those laughs.

Credit where credit is due, as I recall it was Roger Stern who coined "Absorbing Jr".

For the commissions, do you have a preference for the size of the piece you're working on?

Small preference for the big ones. I like getting my whole arm working.

This is so awesome.  I have noticed that many professional artists have a "go to" pose (like their head is at a certain angle or their body is leaping forward, etc).  I don't think JB has a "go to" angle.  EVERY angle is awesome. Looking up, looking down, left right, Thor descending - it all works!!!

Awesome!

This is like the "Maybe There is a God Part II" thread! Fictitious spirits in the sky brought their A-game today!

John Byrne's art both prompted me to draw as a kid, and dissuade me from trying to do it professionally because I could never be that good.

Each character on this page is perfectly how they should be!
