Syphoning Currents

Some Mr. Fantastic goofiness

Pretty good! That Blob looks so hideous in exactly the right way.

I like Mr Fantastic.  The eyeball bit is a bit grotesque, but the Block still works perfectly for him.

Thanks for the comments guys & gals - Hopefully i'll be able to keep up the pace on making him but, my 360 returns this week from Microsoft so that might eat a little time away from drawing & spriting :blink:

That is one grotesque looking blob (in a good way). I always enjoy seeing the sketch against the finished product, and it has definitely translated well.
I was about to say 'I wouldn't like to bump into him on a dark night', but I think it would be much worse to have him stampeding at me on a well-lit day. Keep up the good work!
Still useless in a fight (but at least now he has an 'action' figure).

Worked on a Havok Stance - The video shows how the chest will pulse in the stance but, the sprites are a bit old compared to the resized stance with the neck rings added to the costume - These sprites are from preexisting characters from fighting games & not original like Blob or Mr Fantastic :blink:

You are extremely talented, I never knew there was an option to use hand drawn images in mugen.

A demo of my upcomming mini comic of Hulk vs Wolverine - This is a pic of hulk arriving in Canada where the battle will inevitably be held - I suck with paint programs but will be painting this for the final product - The story is pretty much written but a few details like Hulks color or Wolvie's costume are still in limbo - Stay tuned :blink:

Your backgrounds are really good.  You have a real Corben/Crumb vibe to your work.  I hope you take that as a compliment.  It's intended to be one.   :thumbup:

Maaaan, I miss all of the villains and heroes from CoH, CoV, and CoR.  There were really neat designs and I was a big fan of all of the original content that the game came up with. I also loved all of the homages that they made to older creations, intentional or not (the Lost reminded me a lot of the Morlocks :P).

Also, like AA, I really love the detail you put in the Cabin. It's just phenomenal. I like all of your other work as well, but the Cabin really stands out.

Thanks guys! I would have thought the Lost Cabin would have been the more boring picture of the bunch, but every time I show it, that's the one that seems to get the most complements. Maybe I should do more scenery drawings? As for The Lost picture, it hurts to even look at it. I miss that game so much. I loved everything about it and can't wait to see if City of Titans can carry the torch.

Here is another pic that I meant to post. It's based on my brothers design of a Blue Psionic Troll from our comic book.

hallo Electro and congratulation for your works! as an old arcade game player i can only be amazed by your mugen stuff ,your illustrations are also very interesting expecially in the details, my favourite is "To kill a Behemoth" (by the way i don't know if to kill a giant dragon the best way is jump on him, and, to be more clear, i don't suggest any manual wich show this picture as a standard method.)

LoL, well it's more about the environment. The knight has lured him into a cave to fight taking away the dragons ability to fly and move around well. At some point the knight must strike and if he's going to strike it might as well be the head. Glad you like it!

This is a portrait I drew for a Mugen character Man Scorpion i'm making. The character comes from Capcom's Dungeons and Dragons game : Shadow Over Mystara. he's a boss character & thus did not have any portraits.

Not as much as me.  :( It is still my favorite game of all time. It was one of the few superhero games that actually made me feel powerful, no matter what abilities I had.

The cabin and dragon drawings are both really good. I love the details.
