And here's my final addition to the Official Handbook To the Marvel Universe Redux Edition, Cornelius Van Lunt. Despite how completely rediculous this guy looks he actually has a pretty cool backstory which I will leave to YOU to research because it's a Friday night and I'm four beers in and want to take a break from this update and get on with my night and go out for once to a place that ISN'T the gym with a member of the opposite sex that ISN'T a close friend. Lunt, everybody. LUNT.

Man oh MAN am I excited about this one. My lovely and gangbusters-talanted friend AMANDA and I just finished our Journey To the West piece after SO MUCH email correspondence and FTP Server drama and sketches and youtube videos and Gorillaz music videos! In the coming weeks we'll more than likely be doing prints of these so once we come up with a price together I'll let anyone interested know. How about some process?!
Initial emails were spent combining our thumbnails into something coherent
Once we nailed down a thumbnail that had a layout we both loved I drew up a quick color study of how I thought the final would look, and from there Amanda made a refined sketch and used that as the basis for nearly a dozen other color studies, like the one below...
From there, I divided which sections would go to who, and then we got started on our individual segments!
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! Probably one of the most well thought out collaborations I have ever done, but would you expect anything less from us working together? I think not. Here's some closeups of the characters...
Sha Wujing (Sandy)
Zhu Bajie (Pigsy)

Tasked with two more characters for the Official Handbook To the Marvel Universe Redux Edition. We got Korvac the energy jabroni and IT the Living Colossus/Moscow Menace.
One of my best friends is a huge fan of Star Trek so I based his face on that fella there. This one's for you, Christina!
And if anyone's interested...
