This week is X-Men week over at The Weekly Themed Art Blog. I decided to do three images, mainly because once I start drawing comic characters I find it hard to stop.
So, here's how I went about it.
Wolverine is one of my favourite comic characters ever. He's super awesome. He gets to have mutant healing powers and an adamantium skeleton and claws. But, he's a character I don't really try to draw very often. It's tough when you really like a character, especially one that's been handled so well by many incredible artists (Darwyn Cooke's version of Logan is probably my favourite, Bill Sienkiewicz
did an amazing Wolverine too), whenever I draw him he never quite looks right to me, I think that tends to happen with iconic characters. So I started off with a really loose sketch, focusing more on the feel of the piece rather than the detail:
