One more for November

Decided to get off my tuckus and get an entry in for Velocity's latest drawing contest. The criteria this time 'round was to take two characters and merge them together. I took the easy route and went with Man-Thing and Thing, so he could either stay Man-Thing or if you wanted to take it to the limit you could call him Man-Thing-Thing. (That'd be one heckuva Giant-Sized title, eh?)

Took a much simpler route also with this one as the super refined ones that Matt and I had done previously bore no fruit for all our extra labor. Bitter? Perhaps...or Naut?

Hey, that's cool! Good decisions as to which aspects of each character to emphasize. How about...

Very cool.

I was thinking, Thing-Man-Thing.

haha that's great christian-i like the choice of mash-ups.

i like the line-work on it.

as for names...not many ways to work it other than those said already.

Just noticed the BLUE EYES!!! Awesome!

Another name possibility...Thing-like Substance.

All about subtlety, Mafus.

Thanks for the kind words, gang. Nice to finally have something worthwhile to post.

Found out yesterday that two other blokes are entering similar pieces. One being Swamp-Thing and Man-Thing (Thing-Thing) and the other just like mine, though Patrick doesn't seem to think the person will ever finish by week's end.

So very cool, Christian! LOVE this! Your work improves with every piece you do!
