The request was for an image that would read in both landscape and
portrait orientation. So. . .

Approx 11x17 inches

What's cool is that this could be hung in ANY orientation and still look cool! Four possible choices as to orientation. This almost makes up for the fact that the commissioner had to pay double since it's Marvel.

Well, hey, he got four pieces in one, right?

(For those who missed the other thread, no, I don't actually charge double
for Marvel characters. This is a JK <g> :-) LOL )

I think I prefer it in landscape, but it certainly works both ways. Well done!

But why is Whirlwind so small? <joke>

Yellowjacket certainly had a cool costume and it's always good to see Hank Pym turn up in a commission.

BTW, love the night-time buildings (as always).

YJ is one of my all-time favorite characters.  I never seem to get enough of him!

We just take for granted JB's cityscapes, by now, don't we?  

Incredible!

Nice. Reminds of an Avengers issue during Engleharts run. Hank used his full range of powers on Whirlwind after Jan was hurt.

JB did you ever consider being an architect? You do an amazing job on everything, but your background work is just so technically spot on. Love this!!

No, but my Dad was for many years. Doubtless I "caught" some of the bug
from him.

I have always thought whirlwind was a very cool, under-used villain. Nice
work John

Pretty cool, JB.  

Reminds me of the panel in FF when Terrax attacks the Thing outside the supermarket and the Thing is being propelled through the air on the column of rocks.

It looks good at any orientation and also works backwards as well.  So in fact you've got 8 ways to display it.  If I was the owner of this I would change it around every so often just to see if anyone noticed.

I'm hoping it was a template for the speed/wind lines.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Between this and that FF vs. Doom and the Super Skrull commission, I'm going to have to start taking sea-sickness pills before opening these threads. That sense of perspective is almost nausea inducing!

This on top of the fact that I've got a slight fear of heights!

A lot is said about how cool your characters are, JB, but I think in images like this the real impact is the context you set them in, because only truly super beings would be able to battle in such circumstances!

Go Hank go!

Talk about vertigo!

Yellowjacket has never looked so good.
