January 2011 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!


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

First up, Julius Villanueva’s drawing is based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “team-up or mash-up comic book characters with Saturday morning cartoon show characters” (click here to see what our resident artists did with that theme). Julius chose to team-up Mojo Jojo with the Ultra-Humanite! Here is Julius’ website.

Wesley Ruff’s drawing is based on the Line It Is Drawn theme of “mash-up/team-up comic book characters with Star Wars characters” (click here to see what our resident artists came up with for that theme). Wesley chose to give us the Incredible Yoda versus Iron Fett! Here is Wesley’s website.

Rufus Edge, naturally enough, chose to go with the Line It Is Drawn theme that HE suggested, “comic book characters doing mundane tasks” (click here to see what our artists did with Rufus’ theme). Rufus went with Galactus and Surfer spending a day at the office. Here is Rufus’ website.

Andy Hunter’s drawing is based on the special Fred Van Lente “Cowboys and Aliens” edition of the Line it is Drawn (see what our artists did with that theme here). Andy decided to go with a Toy Story theme. Check out Andy’s website here.

Jason Welborn went with the comic book characters/Star Wars theme, choosing to mix Hellboy characters with Star Wars characters. Here is Jason’s website.

This is not technically reader art, but the gallery is light this month (I know that it is tough to do extra pieces over the holidays, so it is totally understandable that the gallery would be light), so when Adam Garcia (of comic book and pulp novel fame) sent me a piece by Matthew Petz (of War of the Woods fame) that went along with last week’s “talking animals” theme, I figure I might as well post it! Here is Matthew’s take on the Supernatural brothers as cats! Here is Matthew’s website.

Bill Walko did one based on the Holiday theme! Here is what our resident artists came up for Christmastime drawings! Check out Bill’s website here!

Thanks, everybody!! Great stuff this month!

Feel free to start sending in pieces now for NEXT month’s Reader Art Gallery, which will go up on the second week in February! Remember, use any topic that has been featured on The Line It It Drawn (I’d prefer you use stuff from January’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! Feel free to send up to two drawings, if you’d like! The deadline is February 10th at 3pm Pacific time!

The Mojo/Humanite pic is great, and that Toy Story one is truly inspired. Will never look at those little aliens the same way again

Great batch this month! I love how happy that alien is popping out of the prospector!

All great stuff. My favorites are Mojo/Humanite and Hellboy/Yoda.

Might be lighter in terms of quantity for the month, but WOW, the quality’s been beefed up!

All very nicely done! I’m a big fan of dark humor thrown in w/ the cute stuff.


I really enjoyed the Hellboy/Yoda one (he did have it coming) :)

Dick Grayson got around didn’t he?
