My Week 4 tryout piece for The Line It Is Drawn over at Comics Should Be Good!
The theme this week was: "Comic book characters facing off against villains they've never fought before." The Twitter suggestion for the theme that caught my fancy was Batman vs. Mysterio. I really liked this idea because Mysterio could VERY easily be a real Batman villain (Heck, 70s Bat-villain the Spook basically IS Mysterio). He even has the same green & purple color scheme as the Joker, the Riddler and Catwoman!
The fun part of this one was attempting to draw a Steve Ditko-esque Mysterio and a Marshall Rogers-esque Batman. I even managed to sneak in one of those Ditkoesque water towers that are all over the early issues of Spider-Man. I'm particularly happy with how the colors on this one turned out. Thanks to my buddy Loston Wallace
for some good advice on the colors!
