    Wow, I really like the Wizard and Paste Pot Pete!

    My only suggestion is there's too much wasted page. I'd bring the figures closer to the viewer, even though that means you'll have to cut off more of their bodies. Here's my draw-over (I'm more of an MS Paint guy, tbh):

    Pete's my favorite. He's got Buscema eyebrows.

    I agree they all look great but the composition could use some tweaking. Did a little tweak in photoshop if it helps!


    Really looking forward to your take on these guys! keep us posted!

    I agree. Medusa's hair is a good blocking in device. Might be better on top.

    Thanks guys, I wanted Medusa's hair to be a prominent feature ( always loved the forms Bret Blevins gave her hair in that Inhumans tpb back in the 80's)
    If I position her at the top of the composition, would it not cause a sizing issue? she's no flyer and should be considerably shorter than Sandman?
    Perhaps if I flipped the angle so we are looking down on them looking up at us ( kinda like the JLI first issue cover) rather than them looming over the viewer?
    Kind of want to keep the Wizards pose, I'll have a play around with it and post up some other options.
    Thanks again for the input guys.

    i think she can lift herself up with her hair, like doc ock on his arms/tentacles!

    Watch out for tangents with Sandman’s fist and shoulder, as well as the shoulders of Paste Pot Pete and the Wizard.

    It would be good to keep PPP’s gun in the shot.
