The Venom Plus Prop Challenge

October 12th, 2010 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

As I talked about in my article about NYCC ’10, I decided to make use of Artist Alley after three years of passing it by. The question was, what did I want out of it? Asking for a sketch of just a comic character wasn’t enticing enough for me. I needed something just a little extra.

Therefore, I came up with the Venom Plus Prop Challenge, based on fulfilling my own typecast. Each artist would be tasked with drawing Venom along with another object. Any object. What will the prop be? That’s up to the artist his/herself. I had a lot of fun with this and got a good pile of sketches out of it.

Let the showcase begin.

  1. Fuck yeah, Andrew Hussie sketch!

  2. That was awesome. That sketch of Venom eating ice-cream is a classic.

  3. Dude, Jacob Chabot! I need to lend you the DVDs of Jacob in his wrestling days as The Beetle of Hampshire College’s World Wrestling Collective (of which I was a proud part, as Big Papa Smurf.)

  4. OMG, Jerry Lawler can draw? My love and respect for the man just went up several notches.

    One quibble, though – it’s only a fanny pack is the pack only attaches around the wearer’s waist – that Venom has a regular backpack.

  5. @Prodigal: Venom is wearing a fanny pack. Look closer.

  6. @Prodigal I know, right? I didn’t “the King” could draw either. That is awesome.

    My favorites gotta be Venom with Ice Cream and Venom with Sketchbook.

  7. @david brothers: Sorry, it was doing too good a job of blending in to the costume. My bad.

    And Venom with the Sketchbook of Venom with Props That Include the Sketchbook of Venom with Props That Venom Is Holding is my favorite also.

  8. Haha these are fantastic. My personal favorites are the Handlebar Mustache, Crown, Spider Jerusalem Glasses, Rectal Thermometer (lol Wegener) and… everything after that, really. Though tbh they’re all great.

  9. Lord, yes, please.
