NICK FURY by Chris Samnee

I couldn't possibly have been more jazzed when I heard that Mitch's pick for this week was sixties era Nick Fury. No offense to any of Fury's other incarnations over the years but the sixties stuff is what really speaks to me. I dare you to find a cooler comic. Great pick, Mr. Gerads! :D

It's like you combined Marvel!Steranko with Chandler!Steranko. Awesome.

Adrian said...

That's an outstanding piece right there. I'd put money down for that.

Evan "Doc" Shaner said...

Definitely getting a strong Steranko Red Tide vibe from this one, Chris. Great angle, and the upshot of the alleyways is really nice.

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Goddamn, Chris! This is fantastic.

Man you really rock the b/w compositions!

Brian said...

Makes me want to see you do at least a six issue mini of the 1960's Nick Fury.

I'd buy that for a dollar! Well....a lot more than a dollar.

Anyway, truly awsome piece of art here. Perfect for 60's Nick Fury. Nice job! Great lighting.

Chris said...

Thanks a ton, guys!! Really glad to here that ya dig it :)

Francesco Francavilla said...

Great angle and a masterful use of blacks, Chris :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Josh said...

nice contrast. It reminds me of the "spotting your blacks" section in How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way. I love the silhouettes of his chest, the laundry, and the fire escapes.

This is phenomenal. So the right mood for the character. A great composition

Very nice. I really like how this piece captures the mood just right without using or focusing too heavily on Nick Fury's using visual calling cards: the eye patch, the cigar, the SHIELD uniform, the gun, the flying car, etc.

Great use of shadows to conceal and reveal. I love the perspective and the silouetted images of the closelines and fire escapes. Bravo!

Mitch Gerads said...

You make this Fury fan oh so happy.

Pants-wettingly strong composition.
