NICK FURY and his HOWLING AVENGERS by Chris Samnee

click to embiggen

"What if" I wanted to draw a team book? I'd want to draw this one. Nothing high concept here. Just wanted to put my favorite versions of some of my favorite Marvel characters into the Avengers, and have them lead by Nick Fury, who would make a kick-ass leader of any group! And yes, Beast is now a member of S.H.I.E.L.D - he's a joiner! :)

EDIT: Fellow Twartist Nathan Fairbairn colored this guy up for me. Amazing work, Nathan! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! :D






EDIT: Holy cats!! Another outstanding take on colors by fellow Twartist, Evan Shaner!! Thanks a ton, Doc, it looks A-MA-ZING!!!!

I'd buy this! What I love most about it is the Nick Fury icon in the upper left. Great work, man!

Wow. Thanks a ton you guys!! I really appreciate all the kind words. :D

And thanks again to Nathan and Evan for stellar work on each of their takes on the colors.

Best Twart yet. Just amazing work.

Alan said...

Brilliant work. From composition, rendering and colouring (both versions). The colours are so perfect. You can imagine this in a Myler bag from the 60s.

Love this, Chris.
