YES!

I really love the way you've been doing Thor's leg wrappings lately. And the reflections on Wonder-Man's goggles looks really cool.

Wonderful piece JB. When I opened the thread to see the art I knew I would be impressed. but when I saw it an interesting feeling came over me. I was mildly disappoint with what I saw. I quickly thought where the heck did that feeling come from. I realized it was because there wasn't this amazing background to see.

By no means am I knocking this piece. I think it looks great. I've come to enjoy your backgrounds so much more than the figures. They have impressed me so much. It wasn't really to this moment that it even occurred to me.

Still that being said an exciting piece of work JB.

The request asks for "a scene of devastation," but I guessed the customer didn't really want the figures to be three inches tall so we could se a bunch of broken buildings.

ZOUNDS--Thor looks amazing! Three things that keep grabbing my attention :
1. The wings on his helmet
2. The texture of Mjolnir
3. Thor's cape

I don't mean to slight Wonder Man and the background devastation, both of which are fantastic, but Thor is just WOW.

I love all the heavy black - and the sheer *heaviness* of this piece. It really feels like Simon's just been socked into a building - and it HURT.

Great action!!
Thor owed him that punch after Simon caught him with one in their first meeting..

By the way this is dated 1 month into the future.
