Wolverine Art Contest Entry!!!

     Ahoy there! There is a local comic shop here ( Collected ) that started hosting a monthly art contest based on different comic and pop culture properties. They have had competitions based on everything from Captain America to Doctor Who. I joined in on a few and then missed a great deal from the last few months because i just wasn't working the production time into my schedule.

This November, in celebration/remembrance of the current Marvel event, the death of Wolverine, the theme of the contest was that big, clawed, hairy Canadian hero, Wolvie! Well, while i was trying to decide on what super detailed beat-down scene i was going to draw, my awesome wife suggested something completely out of left field, illustrating a baby version of Wolverine!

Her idea was brilliant and below is what came of it! I added the pencil layout and close-ups of the fun little details I put into the drawing from the impaled Deadpool to the Phoenix/Jean Grey doll wrapped in his arm. I also added the pencil version of the art so you can see what it looked like before it was colored! It was a lot of fun and a good deal of time to color so I just barely had it turned in on time! Whew! As of the time of this post the judging is still going on so I will update it and let you know if I place!

Thanks for looking in and my very best to you!

You can see this and more on my art Facebook page here titled DutzWorks!

Take care and stay awesome!
