Penance by johnsonting Penance by johnsonting
This week's character! Sorry for the one day delay, had a really really busy weekend and alot of projects going on recently.

Okay, when i first saw this character, the design instantly caught my heart! it was so freakin amazing! And after i got to know that he was actually speedball, my love grew for him. lol.

I really like the character, so i didnt redesign him, just add in some stuffs, but wanted to do more like a tribute to this awesome character. And wanted to try out the amazing Marko's kinda way of approaching a simple yet effective background.

Also, this next 4 series, i will tackle on more emotional pieces! and will probably paint all the thunderbolts character.

Previously, the fiery four:

As America bled... All Penance could do is to take it back from those who make it bleed.

amazingly cool, though I always feel disturbed slightly when I think about the progression of the character

Penance: Relentless- To this day, that is my favorite comic collection. Just did NOT expect to pick up something so arbitrarily and love it so much.

I don't understand penance. Didn't he used to have super speed and he was a good guy? Then all of a sudden the super speed goes away and now he has these new powers.

No worries, i also added your deadpool to my faves - intense! They should hire you for costume design when the make the origins movie (also fire everyone involved with the movie franchise) :)



BTW I am currently involved in the DA T Shirt contest and could use some help (a vote or some feedback). Click here to have a look and vote: [link]

No problem if you are not interested!

So many manly tears were shed.
His tie-in was, I think, the only one I really enjoyed in Civil War.

So many lives were lost in the Stanford Incident, the most tragic of them all was Robbie Baldwin. This picture captures his sadness and mourning. Nitro, I will never forgive you. EVER!
