|(top L to R) Lion Thor, Hawkeye, and Iron Rhino (bottom L to R) Ele-Hulk, Captain Ameerkat, and Black Flamingo|
I drew this picture of the animal parodies of the Avengers in anticipation of my involvement with the LA Zoo Comic Jungle. However, it was only recently that I actually found this picture. It was wedged between my sketchbooks and shoved in my closet.
The animals were thought out based on the Avenger's characteristic or a punny name. My personal favorite is Captain Ameerkat, even though a lot people thought that he resembled more of an otter. Hhhhmmmm.... Back to the drawing board for me.
For the picture, I initially drew it with a mechanical pencil and then had it inked over with a medium tip Papermate Flair marker. I usually reserve using the Flair marker for bold lines, but since this is a cartoony picture, the lines should be more thicker. For the heavy blacks, I used the Thick tip Sharpie marker.
