Pencil sketch of the Marvel Comics character “Thanos.” Thanos is part of the Marvel universe “cosmic” line. Marvel Comics recently published “Thanos Rising”, a limited series featuring the above character. It was well-written and exceptionally illustrated. I was inspired to draw Thanos after viewing the after-credits scene in the movie “The Avengers.” I had fun with this one. It measures 17″ x 11″ and is rendered entirely in graphite using a Cretacolor Monolith Woodless Pencil. My very first drawing ever of this imposing villain. I hope he turns up again in one of Marvel’s upcoming feature films, either in the Guardians of the Galaxy or the next Avengers film.
