Inspired by Mr. Hartwell's most excellent recent take on the character.

I loved his imagined dialog between Stan Lee and Jack Kirby at the inception of the Super Skrull as well:

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the Marvel offices, circa 1963:

Jack: "Geez, Stan, we're 17 issues into this book - who are we gonna have 'em go against *this* time? I'm all tapped out!"

Stan: "How about the Skrulls? Fans seemed to like the Skrulls from issue 2, yeah?"

Jack: "Those guys were stupid, Stan."

Stan: "No, wait! What if we took one Skrull and gave him all the powers of the Fantastic Four! He wouldn't be *just* a Skrull...he'd be...a SUP-AH Skrull!"

Jack: (rolling eyes) "Super Skrull. Yeah, right. Okay. Whatever."

Stan: "Excelsior!"

    Okay, I give up: I HAVE to know how you do these faces in profile!

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    I don’t understand the question, Nick …

  3. Nick Hentschel says:

    I can only draw faces, bodies, etc. in straight-on views in HM, yet you seem to be able to do side-on and three-quarter views, all the time!

  4. Jeff Hebert says:

    Ah! These aren’t HeroMachine drawings — all of the “Sketch of the Day” series are hand-drawn custom illustrations I do. They’re not from or in the programs at all, and it’s not possible to recreate these exact same things in any HM version.

    Sorry for any confusion!

    I feel much less lame, now. Thanks!
