the Marvel Superhero Hour





Lately, during the week, I've been trying to take a couple hours at the end of the night to paint up some small super-hero sketches. Some are done as commissions while others are done for fun. Here's a few from that batch, all of which were painted in gouache and ink on board. I've been doing most of my work in gouache lately, instead of using markers, and really enjoying having a painted final product that needs little pshop cleanup.

Please note, I'm not taking any new commission requests right now. Sorry if this looks like a tease -- I'm just too busy with other projects at the moment.

Very nice work sir. Loves it! How much for a sketch?

Michael Cho said...

Thanks, Dustin. Sorry, buddy, but I'm just not taking any more commissions at the moment. You can always hit me up for a sketch if you attend one of the mainstream shows in Toronto (but not TCAF - I never sketch at that show).

As always, great work! Love that Captain America!

Don Van Horn said...

Nicely done! Always love seeing your superhero work.

Michael Cho said...

Thanks, guys. Those Iron Man and Cap drawings are among a bunch of original art I'll be taking to TCAF for sale.

Really lovely illos! That Hulk is so 'early issues' of Hulk classic Kirby-esque.

(what about Hulks trousers?)

Davis Dewsbury said...

Great stuff Michael! I love all three. The Hulk piece looks kinda Kirby-esque too!

Michael Cho said...

Thanks, everyone. Whenever I draw the 'classic' Marvel superheroes, I always try to make them Kirby-esque. I really can't draw them any other way.

Drazen: thanks, buddy. I haven't seen that 'Ink' documentary yet - I've been meaning to get a copy of it!

Awesome Cap! Awesome all of them, really, but I like Cap. Speaking of Cap, why no updates on your "Go To Guy" blog lately? That IM pic would fit in nicely!
