This one has jumped to the top of my favorite commissions list. Congrats David. I really think the inks on this piece are perfect.

When I first discovered the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, I came upon the Thundra page, and instantly thought she was Mrs. Doc Sampson or somehow related to him.  I wonder if there's a reason it looks like they went to the same costume designer. 

Then again, Spider-Man, and Spider-Woman II are about as related, and yet his black costume is very heavily influenced by hers. 

I wonder what the thought process was (if there was one) in each of these instances.

Were they drawn upside-down?

They're practically jumping off the page.

Nice work!

When I have tried to teach line weight to eager young minds, I usually start
by telling them, at least in the beginning, to thing of the line as a heavy
elastic band stretched around the figure. This is not 100%, but it points in
the right direction, and gets them thinking about where the line would be
"under tension" and where it would be "relaxed". From there they can get on
to working out the practical application.

Ok, that makes a lot more sense! I was trying to figure this out while inking
my own doodles. I was using the near/far thing. Then I would look at other
people's art and get confused because their lines were even more varied.
Thanks JB!

You artistic types have my envy.  I'll never be an artist.  Or a teen model.

Amazing...or is that sensational?  It astounds me that editors want other people inking JB.  He is clearly the best inker for his own work.  I would think most artists would be their own best inkers as they know what the planned with their pencils to begin with.  JB turned She-Hulk into a character I liked and cared about.  No mean feat, especially since he replaced my favorite FF member with her. Another great commission JB.

Nice piece.

One of my earliest comics was Marvel Two-In-One 56 featuring Thundra.
The cover of her slugging the Thing has stuck with me almost 30 years.

I didn't know it was a John Byrne/Terry Austin cover until today when I
found it online.

See why I can never be an artist? I almost phrased my question "upside-down or right-side up" Never ONCE thinking sideways!!
