Homage to the 'King' by skywarp-2 Homage to the 'King' by skywarp-2
To Jack "the King" Kirby ( the man who made marvel Comics and DC comics what is was visually) and Burgeoning Artists everywhere...

This is a homage to Jack the King Kirby, the quintessential and most revered comic artist of the 20TH century..

in honor of his greatness, I am doing a few character sketch models for those who want to design their super hero in a Kirby style.. so here is the Male body front for your artistic and fun use to design your own version of a Kirby figure..

enjoy..

and to Mr. Kirby,

the art of the world is a little less colorful, and the sky seems a little less bright, and though you've been gone from us for years now, we still miss your wise and wonderful ideas..God Speed and God Bless..thank you for what you have given us..


pssssst....

maybe, just maybe, :icondualmask: will want to put some inks on these.. who knows.. :D

So are these free for people to edit?

Also,Kirbys legacy lives on,in the pagesof modern comics that could not exist today without Kirbys wisdom.His is a legend that shall never die.

I always dig the way you can mimic various styles. Normally I wouldn't be against inking your stuff, but lately I'm so caught up in working on my comic that I don't have time for much else.

Sounds great. When I get a few more character designs on paper, I'm planning to take a break and do some other things just to shake off the monotony--a little inking here and there might be part of that.
