Great design depicting Hellboy as a prancing demon, labeled with his real name Anung Un Rama (“Upon his brow is set a crown of flames”).
Color – Nice creamy light yellow paired with the deep crimson red creates a nice contrast.
Concept – Interesting concept of having Hellboy look like the infamous French Quina Imp Poster.

His side slicked hair, light gray suit, and bright red tie make Pee-Wee easily recognizable.
Composition – Wonderfully balanced frame around main figure. The horrors of the forest seem to surround poor Pee-Wee.
Lines and Forms – Each animal is nicely formed and rendered in an etch like quality. I really enjoy the bear in the top right. His open mouth and glowing eyes look amazing.
Thank You Dave Quiggle

Both seductively appealing and horned, this is a match made in hell.
Concept – These two super villains would make an awesome evil team! These two would definitely “shepherd the week though the valley of darkness”.
Lines and Forms – Nice, clean simplified render of both characters.

Wonderful mash-up of clever villains. The God of Mischief looks well in the Joker makeup. The amount of detail on the figure’s face really portrays the artist’s intent to combine both characters. If the actor, Tom Hiddleston, actually put on Joker makeup, this is exactly what he would look like. The high shine, sleek effect given to Loki’s head dress is MARVELous on black. The stark white, disembodied head looks intriguing and ominous.

Awesome use of the glow in the dark gimmick. The concept of changing and the contrast of light and dark work well for the subject matter. The lights on version of Walter White portrays him broken and disintegrating on the blue meth crystals. The lights off version portrays Heisenberg, the shady dark side of the the alter ego of this character. The metamorphous of the shirt nicely mirrors the change in the character in the show.

Today must be a “I Love black shirts with a disembodied head” day.
The king of the grim and macabre is strikingly shaded using light tones on a dark background. I enjoy the treatment of the highlights in the figure’s hair. It looks shiny and well groomed. The light tones on the forehead create a gravitational pull towards the eyes. The placement of the text near his enthralling eyes, creates movement from figure to text.
