I am surprised this topic hasn't come up already.   I was going to use this a way to try out the toning feature in Manga Studio but it frustrated me to know end so I just did the toning in Photoshop.

I could draw Man-Thing all day.  Once you get his anatomy right it is just a matter of playing around and going crazy with the details.

Also, everybody is rocking it this week.  I should have know Giant Size Man-Thing would be a hit with this crowd.


  1. Love the stack of shit you put on his back! great work man!

  2. This style is so great with this character. I love it.

  3. You really brought your A game, Kev. The grayscale and background make this piece. I felt like a chump posting mine after yours! ;)

  4. Kick ass Man Thing sir, and the illustration is nice too! ;)
    Seriously thought I like the black and white Man Thing for some reason.
