Simply Bond… James Bond

SimplyBondbyJTjr2018

I only had enough time today to do a simplified drawing of British Secret Service agent, Bond… James Bond. He was the first non-costumed hero I was introduced to. However, I didn’t grew any interest until the video game release of Goldeneye on the Nintendo 64. Having watched most of the movies, I admire the world they created, including the gadgets, the characters, and even the places Bond goes to. It was a series I enjoyed before getting into other genres later on.

Christopher Reeve Superman Redrawn

Comic-Con is going on right now, and we have trailers released for upcoming movies, including Aquaman and Shazam. As I wrap up “Redrawing From The Past,” I thought I’d do one more redrawing of Superman as portrayed by the late Christopher Reeve. Originally drawn in 2004, around the time of his passing, I did it as a tribute.  However, I don’t recall what my thought process was when I drew this. It didn’t look like the actor, and I didn’t add any shading in. Perhaps I was too impatient and wanted to go a line only art style? Nevertheless, it’s interesting to see how far I’ve come. I might do another round of redrawing sometime in the near future.

Penciling: 3 hours, 40 minutes

NEXT WEEK (Until the 28th this month): With another Superman actor, Henry Cavil, appearing in Misson Impossible: Fallout this week, I figured the next theme will be about “Spies.”

Beach Volleyball Girl

A girl at a volleyball court on the beach. Another one from my 2002 collection.

Police Cheif

I’m going to be quick because I’m pass midnight over here.  This was a character I’ve drawn a few times, meant for a story. He’s that tough guy police chief seen in movies, who plays a supporting role to the main character. He doesn’t smoke these days. Even if he wanted to, his department wouldn’t allow it, ever since a fire incident occurred a few years back.

The Midnight Crusader

Another recreation of an original character.  This time, from 2010. I made a few adjustments, including a new mask and a different pose to show the “M” symbol.  I remember really liking the design when I first created him. He was one my Batman pastiches. An ordinary man with an assortment of gadgets, years of hand-to-hand combat training, along with physical and mental perfection. Although he works with other superheroes, he is not all who he appears to be.

Skull Operative

Another redrawing from 2002.  For this one, I decided to give him a redesign based on a vision I had at the time.  It’s more of an answer to “What if this character was adapted into live action?” I pictured he would look more like an armored tactical soldier with a novelty skull mask and a painted on logo, like the Punisher and Crossbones. I didn’t have an established backstory him back then, but I always pictured him working as either a villain or vigilante.

Heart Girl Redrawn

Here’s a redrawing of a girl with a heart t-shirt back in 2002.  This was when I slowly started to add my signature to my drawings.

Evil Ryu Redrawn

The first old artwork to be redrawn is “Evil” Ryu from Street Fighter.  The original on the left didn’t have a signature or watermark at the. I’m guessing this was done in the early 2000s, because around that time, I was getting into animes like Dragon Ball Z, which was probably why I gave him spiky hair.  My recreation was based on the version in Street Fighter IV, with a few alterations.  It was originally going to be a black and white drawing, until I came up with an idea of doing minimal colors similar to last week’s theme.

 

Star Sapphires – Carol Ferris

Ending this week’s them on the “DC Lantern Spectrum” is Carol Farris of the Star Sapphires and former love interest of Hal Jordan.

The Star Sapphires, aka the Violet Lantern Corps, are one of the seven main corps powered by a specific color. In this case, violet. They are mostly an all-female group formed eons ago, on a distant planet called Zamaron. There, a crystal was discovered by the Zamarons lying between the corpses of a male and female. Little did they know, the crystal was a parasite that soaks up strong emotions of love. So, the Zamarons created a power battery along with the power rings.

Aside from their abilities to fly, form a protective aura, and create violet light constructs,  there are other unique abilities. One allows them to create a connection to a loved one and aid them whenever they’re in danger. The power rings can also reach into the heart of the wearer and reveal their greatest love.

NEXT WEEK: “Redrawing from the Past.” I will be posting old artwork from long ago and redraw them with the skills I have now. Expect some of them to be on lined paper.
