SPAWN by David Cutler
Being that this is both my first post here and my first time choosing the character to be Spitballed, I wanted to make sure it was something fun. I tossed around a bunch of character ideas but in the end I arrived at Todd McFarlane's Spawn. Like Michael, I hadn't drawn the guy since I was 12 or 13, when I used to copy him out of the comics that came with the original action figures. It's amazing that even though his costume's covered in common 90s superhero excesses (he's got spikes, skulls, chains, pouches, an impractically long cape, and very often gigantic guns--he's only missing one enormous shoulder pad) he still manages to look really cool.
You can check out the lineart at my blog, posted in the sidebar. Can't wait to find out who we're doing next. This is gonna be awesome.
