Weapon X



Wolverine: Brown suit. Even though this is in black and white..... I haven't followed a comicbook series in the last ten plus years, but the other day I was reminded of Chris Claremont and Paul Smith's run on the X-Men. That era was my introduction to the series and, for me, the definitive group and look. So I had to draw Wolverine in the brown suit and in keeping with the nostalgia, he had to be fighting some ninjas.

Whoa! Is this the same drawing you were doing when we were out sketching at Barnes & Noble?

Epic, as all your drawings are. Oh, and those thumbs? Exquisite. And you were freaking out about them *shakes head* Oh, you.

Sam, I just can't get enough of your work. Really love your take on Wolvie and the perspective is off the chain. Nice stuff.

[GASP!]

Who posted a new image on his blog?! Who is it?! Who?! Who's cute and posted an awesome WOLVERINE picture on his blog?! That's right, Sammy ol' boy: It's YOU! Hooray!

Aw, man! This thing looks *SO* Weapon X to me - it reminds me so much of good Paul Smith! And you know how much I respect that man! So that means you and Smitty are running neck and neck! Woot!

All foolish blubbering aside - this is a treat to see because it's such a great image, Sam. Love them boots best.

hey love your blog and your site and everything.

i saw on an older post that you played everquest :) i played a lot back in the day, and still get on every now and then. I think we're both shadowknights with 2.0 epics, as well :)

I've returned here again not to harass you or give you a hard time, bit instead, I wanted to tell you how awesome the drawings are on this blog. I *KNOW* for a fact how busy you are, but if there's ever a chance for you to do a new image (however small or 'sketchy') and a blog update, it'd be a real big treat for all of us - your fans.

Keep up the great GREAT work. Can't wait to see more.


Eric.
