SOD.069 – DOOM!

069

After the discussion with Imp in the last thread, I wanted to try doing all the coloring in Flash. It can handle gradients, but for nicer shading you really need Photoshop.

  1. There was a really amusing moment when I came to the site this morning, and saw the title…the head…and in multiple scroll bumps the giant DOOM. It just fits his “I’m too great for this world, and am my own god” personality. Doom is interesting for that reason, I always found.

  2. I would agree, that towering arrogance and megalomania is what makes Doom so interesting. I love the character, he’s pretty much the perfect super-villain to me — intelligent, driven, powerful (but not ridiculously so), well matched to his opponents, and supremely arrogant.

  3. Demented The Clown

    Whats The Story With His Face? Just A Mask Like The Movie?

  4. You’ll have to read the comics to know what’s up with him nowadays, but it was always my understanding that he wore a mask to cover hideous demon scars on his face, yes.

  5. Jeff, what can I say but….

    *Transmission Interrupted*

    All will be silenced in my presence! I, Doom, have left the confines of my keep to make an appearance amongst the mortals. You should rejoice, that in my benevolence, I’ve classified you as mortals rather than the scurrying insects you are– you are glad, are you not? Doom is here to tell the artist, “Hebert”, that he has captured Doom’s visage splendidly. It could be said you’ve done what only one other– that being Richards– has accomplished: Doom is impressed. Bah! Doom takes leave of you now! Grovel before Doom!

    *Transmission Closed*

  6. I just thought of something…

    You know how there’s a theory that the Joker has a form of insanity that counts as a superpower? I believe it’s called “Super-sanity” or something.

    I wonder if Doom’s arrogance can be qualified as a form of “Super-arrogance” that crosses the line to a superpower.

  7. Most of the drawing is really good. I’m having a problem with the mouth of the mask.

  8. Me likey!

  9. I love the atmosphere that makes you think, “DUNDUNDAH!!!!!” That is what you look for in a villian drawing, and you pulled it off beautifully. Good one. I know I say this every time, but that is because all of your drawings are good, although some have some minor issues. But overall, you’re a great artist Jeff! 😀

  10. That is about ten kinds of badass.

    I got nothin else.

  11. Dr.Doom in the morning: “*Yawn* I, DOOM, am still sleepy! Therefore I, DOOM, shall hit the snooze button with DOOM’S mighty hand! Then I, DOOM, shall have my coffee, CREAM AND TWO SUGERS!! Finally, I, DOOM, shall have my 7 to 7:30AM cursing of those Fantastic Four!”
