October 2010 Reader Art Gallery!

Every week, we have six artists do sketches based on reader suggestions. The feature is called The Line It Is Drawn (check it out here). Well, once a month I am letting any reader who wants to share their OWN drawings send in one drawing apiece based on one of the previous topics that the Line It Is Drawn artists have used. I’ll feature the art with the artist’s name and the artist’s website (if any).

Here is our latest monthly reader art gallery!

Enjoy!

The art is posted in the order in which I received them!

Pablo Agurcia’s drawing is based on the Line It It Drawn theme of “team-up a historical figure with a comic book character” (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Pablo chose to team-up Mahatma Gandhi with Union Jack! Check out Pablo’s website here.

Rachael Stott’s drawing is based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “comic book characters in different time periods” (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Rachael chose to draw the Fantastic Four in around 1700-1800 England. Check out Rachael’s website here.

Isiah Shackelford’s drawing is, I think, based on the aforementioned “team-up a historical figure with a comic book character” theme, with this Angel/Nelly mash-up. Check out Isiah’s website here.

Chaz Folgar is now a resident The Line It Is Drawn artist, but before he got the “promotion,” he already finished work on this piece, which was based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “comic book characters with literary figures” (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Chaz chose to draw Mike Allred’s Madman dancing along with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein Monster, while Dick Briefer’s humorous take on Frankenstein watches on. Check out Chaz’s website here.

Rufus Edge’s drawing is also based on the “comic book characters with literary figures” theme. Rufus is teaming up Doctor Strange with Sherlock Holmes (in his typical offbeat style, of course). Check out Rufus’ website here.

Douglas Nelson’s drawing is based on the “comic book characters/TV show mash-up” theme (click here to see what our resident artists drew). Douglas decided to mash-up Lost with Secret Wars. Check out Douglas’ website here.

Jason Welborn’s drawing is based on the “comic book characters/TV show mash-up” theme (click here to see what our resident artists drew for a special edition of that theme based just on suggestions by comic book writer Peter David). Jason decided to do Laverne and Shirley, just with Thanos and Silver Surfer! Check out Jason’s website here.

Finally, Michael Magtanong’s drawing is ALSO based on the “comic book character/TV show” theme. He decided to have Granny Goodness star in Golden Girls! Check out Michael’s website here.

Thanks a lot for the great artwork, folks! This was a nice turnout, but I think I will make sure to promote future installments even MORE so we can get even MORE cool pieces for future installments! Feel free to start sending in pieces now for NEXT month’s Reader Art Gallery, which will go up on the second Thursday in November! Remember, use any topic that has been featured on The Line It It Drawn (I’d prefer you use stuff from October’s editions, but I won’t hold you to that)! Just send a JPEG of your drawing to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com for inclusion in next month’s gallery!

That Ye Olde English FF is gorgeous. And the Madman Franken-boogie is also awesome.

Great art all round, guys! We can’t have all the fun. ;)

Does Nelly really qualify as a historical figure?

Once again, overall this fanart has been both very imaginative and well-drawn.

I would’ve preferred to see Ghandi do something non-violent to Jack, but I gotta admit, it looks funny! :D

Haven’t we seen the Ff-in-the-past thing already? in Marvel: 1601 I think? Still, this is probably the BEST drawn this time around!

The only one I didn’t like was the Nelly one, but only because I don’t like *him* the art itself is great.

Hey, Madman! Long time no see!

The Strange/Holmes one is funny, but Sherlock doesn’t look like himself at all. If not for the pipe, I wouldn’t have recognized him!

Let’s face it: LOST was really Secret Wars WITHOUT superheroes! :D

I don’t get the Thanos one, but then I never watched L&S.

Yeesh, I feel sorry for the Golden Girls! :D

If you’ve seen the show’s opening credits, the Laverne and Shirley one is great. Best of the month for me.

:52 second mark

I wish I could’ve participated this month, but unfortunately the deadlines are creeping up on me.

I have to say there’s some really excellent work this month! The Victorian FF is my favorite in terms of draftsmanship, and in terms of concept Surfer and Thanos is a riot!

So I’m amused by the Darkseid/Kalibak salt and pepper shakers in the last drawing. But I can’t decide which is which.

Love the stuff on here! Great job everybody!!! Ha! I knew Doc Strange read “Martha Stewart Living!” And man, oh, man does Thanos look sad — it’s great!

How does one submit a piece for consideration?

Oops, I see I left my e-mail off. I added it now. You just e-mail me a jpeg of your drawing, Mike.

The Laverne and Shirley parody had me rolling. Excellent work!

I liked all of these, even the Nelly one, which kind of tweaked the rules since Nelly isn’t really a historical figure, but the art is nice enough that I can forgive that.

Didnt have time to send in a drawing this month :( Ill try harder next time.

Not that there’s a lack of cool submissions. Great job everyone. Especially the FF one is gorgeous!

I really love the Doctor Strange one.

@ Ian Miller: Thanks for the link. They certainly cannot make a show like that these days… I’d come across like Ally McBeal, or worse, Desperate Housewives.

“So I’m amused by the Darkseid/Kalibak salt and pepper shakers in the last drawing. But I can’t decide which is which.”

What th- I hadn’t even noticed that!! Wow that’s even more original! Good going!! :D

Nice work all. I especially like the Thanos and Surfer one myself.

I think those salt and pepper shakers, but I believe that it’s Darkseid and Highfather from what I can tell. Very nice though.

I’m pleased and amushed by Chaz’s nod to the Prize Comics version of Frankenstein, complete with that li’l button nose in his forehead!

I like how that Nelly piece is just something repurposed from 2007 that he probably drew only because he wanted to put wings on a shitty rapper, as opposed to putting together a character and a historical figure.

For those of you who love CG art, check out this thread — >http://www.zbrushcentral.com/showthread.php?t=096117
Lots of comic inspired madness going on.

Cool! Thanks so much to Brian Cronin for posting my piece!

And thank you to fellow CSBG readers for the kind comments! I’m glad y’all dig the salt and pepper shakers. Ha! The pepper would be inside “Dark”seid. To clear up who the salt shaker is, I did a recolored version…

Enjoy!

Peace.
