some earrrrrly development scribbles . . .






hey all,

hope everyone is doing well.
so, when i first got asked to work on Captain Marvel, i put together a Series Bible for DC. in it were takes on the characters, story summaries, plots and outlines aaaaand some early development images.
some were seen in the Newsarama interview i think, however just for fun, i thought i'd drop some of them here too. again, these are earrrrrrrly images of development, yet there are still things i like about 'em. naturally i'm pushing the art even more and refining it even more as i've been immersing myself deeper and deeper into the "marvel" universe. ;)
but in the meantime, i hope you enjoy these. i know for me, it's always fun to see the process of things as they are being created.

take care and all the best,
m . . .

I love that Black Adam and Captain Marvel piece. I really like your take on Dr. Sivana as well. Any hints on a release date yet?

I think Mary Marvel's flight path/poses look slightly familiar to Herobear fans...
*rolling eyes innocently*

Did you do the colouring as well?

There is a nice depth to it that hasn't been apparent in your other art... but then, this is really the first chance we've had to see your colouring abilities...

Also, why on earth can I not find a TPB of HeroBear? Does it not exist?

Aaaauuuhhhrrrggg!!!
The anticipation is Killing me! I'm a HUGE fan of the Big Red Cheeze.
I love your artwork Mike, it's PERFECT for Cap. You have captured the original magic like no one else. Thanks for making Cap's costume a uniform and not Spandex. Love black Adams short sleeve "Thug" look. Can't wait Can't Wait CAN'T WAIT!!!
