The Thing

So not the easiest character to draw. You have to pay attention to the shape of his body and also shape the rock plates to help with some kind of modeling. This is a piece from James Smith's proposal Soldiers. It teams Ben Grimm with Ulik, a rock troll created by Jack Kirby. The short is full of grand imagery, intense emotion and wonderful character development. Stay tuned, maybe we'll sell this sucker to Marvel and we can finally see it in print.

Clobberin' Time!

If only.

Ben Grimm--probably the best character Kirby created.

I do agree he's great, but give me Etrigan The Demon any day!

I never really like Etrigan until Alan Moore did his version. Then I went back and looked at Kirby's creation and appreciated it.
