Do it more like this, do it more like that, taper it more, draw the rib cage line cause I do so, do it like the board, no don't do it like the board make it better, move that line a millimeter to the left, no! move it to the right, draw less think more, never do parallel lines, make negative shapes, that's weak do it again, keep it rough keep it rough, that looks too clean, no that's too rough, that's too flat and stiff and some other extra nit-picky trivial little stuff...Those are some of the things I heard during my carer that helped me become a better artist, at that time I didn't take it so well because of the way it was said. Nevertheless there are always better ways to communicate with people, it seems not everyone has social skills. Regardless, who knew rude people with no manners or social skills were teaching me how to become a better artist, a blessing in disguise. This Galactus is dedicated to them.
In the other note, a few days ago some artists I stopped bye to say hi at work where all incidentally drawing Galactus. It was a bit inspirational and I've been wanting to draw this piece for a while now. This is the way I think Galactus should look for an animated show, without any of those purple gay tights. It looks like he's saying...Hey, how'd you doing neighbor? The poor Silver Surfer seems to have a hard time with Galactus not using deodorant.
I started at 2:32 am after a great Saturday night and finish at 6:16 am.
All that for spirituality after a Constance Demby concert night.
Oh yeah I almost forgot, for those clueless uneducated comic book people here is the explanation of who Galactus is:
Galactus is a fictional character appearing in comic books and other publications published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist and co-plotter Jack Kirby, the character debuted in Fantastic Four #48 (March 1966), the first of a three-issue story later known as "The Galactus Trilogy."
Galactus was originally an explorer called Galan from a planet called "Taa" in a universe which existed before the Big Bang. When the impending cataclysm gradually killed all life in his universe, including almost all of his own people, he and other survivors sought to escape the decay of their world. They left Taa via a space vessel, but it was eventually engulfed in the cataclysm that ended the old universe and spawned a new one. Galan, however, did not die, but was transformed through a bonding with the Sentience of the Universe, and gestated for billions of years, emerging - partially due to the inactivity of a Watcher - into the new universe as Galactus.
Cosmic consciousness man, cosmic consciousness...
