'Solomon Grundy, born on a Moon's Day, christened on Tiw's Day, married on Woden's Day, took ill on Thor's Day, grew worse on Frigg's Day, died on Saturn's Day, buried on Sun's Day. That was the end of Solomon Grundy.'

THAT'S an obscure reference if ever I've made one!

Solom Grundy revived as an Undead and tip-toed through the Tulips in the Graveyard!

@the_poet:

My primary program is Sketchbook pro, I use others like PS for post work but this was done with Sketchbook.

@rulerofthisuniverse:

Glad you approve! :)

@farkam:

I agree with you, I did this on the fly, never tried to pass it off as anything spectacular. Had fun doing it and got me warmed up for the new year.

Gotta love them arm chair quarterbacks! Give him a standing ovation!!!

I will try harder next time, hehehe.

Nice job.

@shadowswordmaster:

Thanks, this was basically a rough sketch that I cleaned up and planned to possibly redo at another time with cleaner lines but maybe just as Solomon without the Thor overtones... I want to add a more creepy feel to the piece.

@the_poet:

It's intuitive and well thought out. Easy to learn and pretty much has everything necessary to create great art in my opinion. It's not overbearing with tools everywhere that get in the way. For me it became second nature from the get go in it's simplicity.

Thank u kind sir!

@cameron83:

Glad u liked!

@batkevin74:

Sure Man, have fun. I may be planning on some more Solomon stuff in the near future, it was my first try with the character and I really liked drawing him. If something clicks I use it to get me to draw some more...

@wavemotioncannon:

Thanks Man, just trying to get the gears going for the new year.... :)

Drawings like this make me feel sub-mediocre. Incredible job.

If you had put no title, I'd have known that was a Solomon Grundy Thor. That's the true test to me. You're quite welcome, I hope someday to achieve your level of art.

@uncanny_xfactor:

Thank you that is truly appreciated.

I always feel that I have a ways to go, so I practice, experiment and practice some more.... :)

@bumpyboo:

Hey Boo Thanks!

Can you please pin this, ah, nevermind, I already saw your answer for that, hehehe....

I like it. I like the way you use your Photoshop to color this amazing piece. Nice and keep it up.

This is extraordinary work man. Anyone who downplayed this, I guarantee you they're hating. This is mainstream material man, great Job.

@fiodestromus:

@azalae:
Thanks! I used Sketchbook Pro, not Photoshop.

@neyon:

Really appreciate the supportive comment!

This was a rush job, you can tell by my scraggly line work but I made the deadline for the contest. :D
