Leyendecker inspired Thor
Hey fellas, I had high hopes for this one. I got the Leyendecker itch again. I have this thing where I think it would be cool to see super heroes rendered the way a golden age illustrators would. When I found out the theme was The Avengers, I thought Thor might be a fun one to do. The bonus to doing Thor was I could make him look like a bad ass viking too...something else I've been wanting to draw lately. So here's my Leyendecker/Viking inspired Thor. I have every intention of trying to paint this in the Leyender style when I get my life back from Sprectrum Live. Oh yeah, don't know if you all noticed or not, but I threw in a dash of Gentilcore and Campbell for good measure on the portrait.
