D O C o c k
Well here is my entry for the Spider Man pick. Doc Ock. So yeah I don’t know a whole hell of a lot about Spider Man, I just a basic knowledge about the main characters and villains. I do remember a long time ago in grade school I had a friend who drew a lot and he had this how to draw marvel book that was 11” x 17”, as it had actual comic boards at the end of the book that one could practice on. In fact I think it was set up so that you were supposed to finish a Spider man comic that they showed in it’s various stages of creation. The first five pages were fully done with ink, color, word bubbles. Then the next pages were just the pencils with the word bubbles, and finally you got to the blank pages where you were supposed to finish the story with your own art and such. I didn’t draw in the book as it wasn’t mine but I did read the Spider Man comic. It was about Spider Man and Mary Jane or some shit , and then he has to go fight Doc Ock, who was robbing a bank. I thought to myself “The dude has robot arms and looks like a crazy super villain, so why the fuck is he wasting his time robbing banks?” I don’t know I guess I just wanted him to do more sinister shit.
So here is my version of Doc Ock. I didn’t use a reference as I was too lazy to look up a pic on google. Figured I’d just shoot from the hip and do a drawing using the memory I had of him. I remember him having this stupid bowl hair cut so I don’t know if that is accurate still or not. Maybe they have hooked him up with a better hairdo in the contemporary Spider Man. Then I still had him robbing banks because I guess that is what he do :P And the martini was just for flavor.
