Just a short and sweet Thanos Commission I’m doing for a fan I met at a store signing. He is collecting different artists doing their own interpretations of the classic Marvel villain. I’ll always identify Thanos with the following four items as visual keys…
#1- The Infinity Gauntlet
#2- The 70’s Anime inspired helmet
#3- the psycho eyes and ever present smile
#4- the wacked out ribbed chin
I put all of them in the piece, and had a nice overlap of hand over face and shoulder to build depth. The piece ended up being a fairly simple, but effective composition to get what I remembered about Thanos into one coherent pinup.
