Another Great addition from Danielle

"I actually drew this piece earlier this week, but had some things come up and just haven't gotten around to posting it until just now. 

This week at :iconillustriousbits: the subject is Mystique and I decided to draw her in the simple black leather outfit she wore as Professor X's secret agent. "

Week 22 - Mystique By Rich Bernatovech

Here's my contribution to this week's subject, Mystique (from the X-Men), on Illustrious Bits. I picked the movie version of Mystique to draw because I've never drawn her before. I admit this was a bit of rushed sketch, but it's been a busy week here. I really love the movie version of Mystique and think that they did an amazing job spotlighting her on the original X-Men movie and even more so with the newer "First Class" film.

Week 21 - Doctor Strange by Randy Ostridge

another great addition from Randy.  Doctor Strange... awesome.

check out more here.

"This image is for a weekly theme over at the Illustrious Bits sketch group.

Here is some old school Doctor Strange. This design was from 1983 while he was in his original Defenders run. He's actually one of the few big-ticket Marvel characters that I don't really know much about. Stephen's got a cool stache though.

Pencil on paper, inked with black, cool gray, and warm gray markers."

Week 21 - Doctor Strange By Rich Bernatovech

Here's my entry of Doctor Strange for this week's subject on Illustrious Bits. With the Pittsburgh Comicon this coming weekend, I wasn't sure I would even try to do a sketch this week. But I had a few quiet minutes last night and was able to draw this. I preferred to draw Doctor Strange in his older look and not the updated current one. I still like the old school, even if it is a bit geeky. :)

According to Rockman Wiki.

I love Rockman... and i love most of the characters from the first video game... Fireman is my favorite.

Here's a redesign of the character. :D"

Week 20 - MegaMan By Rich Bernatovech

I'm a little late with this week's contribution for Illustrious Bits. In all honesty, I almost didn't do this week because I know absolutely nothing about MegaMan (this weeks pick!). But I figured I needed to try and not use that as an excuse to not draw. How else will I get better? lol. I tried to keep a little of the anime feel to him and still put in a bit of my own style. Not sure it worked.

Week 19 - Thor by Randy Ostridge

Love the Animated style... THOR!!!

for more from Randy check it here.

"This image is for a weekly theme over at the Illustrious Bits sketch group.

My daughter and I are watching "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" as I slowly convert her into a comic book geek. It is a fantastic series and stays true to the comics while freshening everything up for TV. I also really like the animation style, which is impactful and chunky.

So here we have Thor, based upon the style used in that series. I should probably pick a style and stick with it, but where is the fun in that?

All Flash."

Week 19 - Thor by Andrew Charipar

This weeks subject is Thor, God of Thunder.

I, of course, went in a little different direction.  Did somewhat of an original version instead of the tried and true Marvel Comics version.

I think I have decided that Illustrious Bits gives me the opportunity to try different things while at the same time trying something classic.  I was working on a new and different version of Huntress and Powergirl last week but ran out of time (it might still come one of these days) and thought, what a great chance to try something different... keep posted, more coming.

Week 19 - Thor By Rich Bernatovech

Here is my contribution for this week's pick, THOR! I've only drawn Thor a few times and I have to admit, he's not a fav of mine to draw. I always end up making him look a little too weak or young. I decided to try drawing him in profile this time and I think that helped a little for me to get a better feel for him. Might have over did it with the lightning, lol.

Week 18 - Powergirl By Jamie Fay

Here is Jamie Fay's contribution to to IllustriosBits Week 18 - Power Girl or Huntress.

Jamie had this to say about his drawing of Powergirl:

"I stayed with the new style I've been doing of the current costumes with an older/classic look in the bg. I also chose the better of the 2 versions of her costume that have been shown. The newer one looks really dated and like its from the 70's or 80's. I feel the one I chose is more modern."

Week 18 - Powergirl by Randy Ostridge

This was Randy's first shot at drawing Powergirl... excellent first try...

"This image is for a weekly theme over at the Illustrious Bits sketch group.

I have never actually drawn Power Girl before, so this was kind of a fun character to play with. I like flying characters generally, so I went with that concept. I wanted to push the lighting of the piece a little more than I usually do, so I went with a backlit scene for some practice.

All Photoshop."
