I need to dig my old Namor issues out. I loved the use of the Griffin in that series.

That's a sweet picture!  I love the angle and how you draw "stuff" in the buildings' windows.

Truth to tell, that's probably what makes my nighttime cityscapes work. Up
to the moment I start dotting stuff in the windows, the "crossword puzzle
effect" persists.

Very nice. It looks so real if you know what I mean. I can't put it into words, but I guess I could use the word "verisimilitude" to describe the picture.

Is Namor experiencing an upsurge of popularity, or what?

Excellent choice!  I, too, loved the Griffin as Namor´s pet!

WOW -- I'd love to see this one on duo-tone board to really capture the feel from Mr Byrne's Namor run.

 

EXCELLENT commission

Very nice indeed.  I see a lot of Bill Everett in Namor's face and Head.

I was just studying the Griffin a few weeks ago.
This is what my drawing was supposed to look like, but mine looks like
colorforms compared.

IMPERIUS REX!! Awesome JB. The angle is way different than I had imagined when I requested this commission. This is much more dynamic than what I had in my "mind's eye." 

And I totally lucked out by getting some Byrne cityscape buildings in this one! (I was actually thinking of ordering another commission w/ Byrne buidings requested specifically...but now I've killed two birds with one stone).

You almost got Savage Land jungle, Joel, but at the very last minute I
decided a nighttime cityscape would make Namor and the Griffin "pop"
more.

Glad you like it!
