A Softer Side: Wolverine

I didn't get to see The Avengers this weekend. I learned a good lesson about seeing movies when you're a parent: if you went through the trouble of securing a sitter, go through the trouble of buying movie tickets in advance. Anyway, I had superheroes on the brain, so I took this image of Wolverine I sketched a year ago and decided to paint it in a Little Golden Books style. I hope this will be the start of a mini-series of pictures. The softer sides of some hard edge characters. Not sure if I'll record them all, but I did this one. Check it out!

That is pretty cool :) Interesting idea to portray the softer side of quite grim ideas in such an innocent cartoonish art style, the caption at the bottom certainly adds to the piece. I hope we get to see some of the other ones if you do more :)

... And then Cyclops optic blasts the butterfly out of the air for giggles. Question though: Why here and not Comicvine?

@Gravier251: Thanks! I've got a whole list of characters I want to do. Not sure if I'll do a haiku-writing Kratos next or a My Little Pony-petting John McClain. Suggestions are welcome of course :)

Because why not. And this is Off-Topic so extra why not.

@JonSmith: What said. Also, because I write about video games a lot, I repost most of my personal blog entries from my website here. And because we're all nerds, and nerds like nerdy things.

@yeah_write: Fair enough.

I like the colours used, very Logan but very soft!
