CARD CARRYING CANTANKEROUS CAJUN'!

UpDATE!
So I desaturated it a bit, too purple...also I fudged in the weird t-shape to his mask.. Here it is...

and Here's the image from yesterday.. Which do you think works better?

Yep....
I went there.
Another Marvel character that I thought was pretty cool as a kid (mind you I'm a pretty huge dork)...maybe it was the bo staff....or the explosive playing cards...I dunno. Brown leather dusters are cool right?
Realized that I haven't drawn a female yet....So, I've got a few sketched to rectify that...liked this sketch so I gave it a going over...

Hope you dig.....

I'm off to the bayou..

P.S. Looking again I used entirely too much purple...there is no contrast...I'll post up something later to rectify that too.

no way, dude! :)

it's not just you, Gambit was (is?!) bad-arse!

it's not ONLY the staff and playing card throwin', though... it's also the sick cajun accent and the surly attitude!

great work!

I'm enjoying these so much.

this one is great!

GOGOPEDRO said...

Thanks guys....

Dagan:Yeah the voice and attitude where pretty cool, Probably liked the fact that he was a more ambiguous hero though.....kinda has the history of being a bad guy too....

William:Glad your digging them..I'm hinting at my next one with this image right here.

I was a gambit fan. Wasn't too cool in the movie though. Your pic is great though. Good fun. The new version tweaks really work.

The T shape of the mask was a great touch!
