A blast from the past with a clip art re-panel

Too bad that re-panel blog called it quits a while back I think this would have been a good entry. I realized over this past Memorial Day weekend that part of the art work in my last fan art piece might actually work pretty well as a re-panel for some clip art in issue 51 so I gave it a shot. I tell ya, when you do something like this you get a real appreciation for the talent and hard work that it takes to be a professional comic book artist. Even more so when you think of the best of the best like our pal Sal.

Nova & Turbo re-panel New Warriors 35
May 27th Update: This morning I felt like doing a quickie re-panel sketch with out the benefit of any pre-existing art work of mine as seen above. If you go back three postings you'll see a cool panel from New Warriors 35. Again it's a unique challenge to re-panel some clip art done by a pro. It's not likely you can do it better but if you can come up with something that's visually interesting then I think you've got something that you can proudly share.

May 30th Update: Score! just found this Dire Wraith reference today in a copy of Avengers 251 that was in a discount back issue box for next to nothing. Finding this now is kinda ironic ever since having seen Avengers: Age of Ultron I've thought about doing a Vision ROM team up fan art piece.

  1. I say go for it man. If there's a need to fill that void, fill it man. Nice, nice artwork though. And yeah, those panels, hell almost any panel, usually looks deceptively easy.

  3. You so should do ROM /Vision - that would be awesome (if you have the time)!

    Yeah re-panelling sure opens your eyes huh. Sometimes you have to fit so much body language, text and detail into a panel, you'd think they all feel every artist is George Perez! Nice work mate.
