I like how the smoke was made very simplistic and how his body is surrounded by white, also his head and face where the shading is just the right amount. It all blends together nicely and makes a kind-of simplistic picture look like a masterpiece
Well, the original Croc was drawn by Don Newton in the early '80s, and was he was different than the animated version too, but was similar. The Jim Lee Croc just looks too much like the Spider-Man villain, the Lizard, and is lacking in his own identity.
Huh, didn't know that. To be honest my knowledge of the Batman universe is based heavily off of the animated series. I just learned more about Clayface last year from looking him up. I'd never even seen him in a comic . . . I really should read more.
That's how I felt about the New Adventures Croc, he looked far too lizard like, the marvel villain or otherwise.
No--I didn't use any sort of special paper. This was actually drawn on a sheet of copy paper. I just put a pad of bristol paper with a textured cover behind the artwork so that I could get a texture imprint when I did some of the shading. If I had taken my time, and if I hadn't moved the drawing around, I could have got a nicer gradation and a more consistant texture in the rubbing. Next time--right?
