The Thing, by Ramón Pérez


it looks like nathan and i were thinking along the same lines...

when i think of the Thing the first thing that pops into mind were the days when he would don his extra large overcoat and stingy brim fedora.

while my piece isn't done yet, i thought i'd share the doodle on a napkin that initiated it... a place holder till the final is done...



the other temptation was to go another more peculiar route. the thing is one of my all time favourite characters (which is funny though, cause i've never liked the fantastic four), however my first exposure to him wasn't through comics but the cartoon show from the late 70s and early 80s...

I'm with Mike, I love the look of this already. Especially the bottom lip/jawline.
