Dr. Strange by Franchesco Dr. Strange by Franchesco
What a fun project this was... had a total blast drawing dozens and dozens of Marvel Characters. For those of you who have not seen/played the PS2 game... and want to see who is on the other end of the good Doctor's --Crimson Bands of Chittorak...

To see Dr.Strange's ally who stands in the background...

All the elements were draws seperately,
then animated in post production.

This is very cool. Doc Strange is one of those characters in the MU that I've always felt doesn't get the right exposure or maybe enough exposure. Cool rendition, and awesomely clean lines. Sweet piece of work, dude. :nod:

Your drawing is always phenomenal, but I can't shake the feeling there's something strangely feminine about Doc Strange here. However, I DO adore that Elektra pic. A lot. You should upload that one too so I can add it to my favorites. Like, a.s.a.p. ;)

You picked up on that too. I got that same vibe when I was drawing it, rather than switching gears... just went with it. My default is to draw male superheroes filled to the brim with testosterone, teeth clenched and fists flying. Dr. Strange is a superhero, yes... but not in the traditonal sense in my mind. I decided to break my mold, and go with a more elegant representation.

I'll upload the Elektra pic for you shortly. :)
thanks for the props!

You know... he looks a bit like Freddie Mercury!
Not that that's a bad thing mind you lmao. This looks great! And I dig elektra!

He kinda does, doesn't he AlphaMale... not that there is anything wrong with that.
Handle Bar Mustache or Hitler Mustache or Mutton Chops
paints an indelible image no matter how we try to spin it.

But seems as though the good Doctor wears it well. :)
Thanks for the props, Brudda!

That's insane talent. Just like in everything else you draw.

He seems... very relaxed, though. I mean, I can understand the whole, holier than thou pov. Sorcerer Supreme and whatnot. But He's almost reclining :P

Meh.


So...what game IS this, then?

Thank you, MIJKA!

Glad you picked up on that body language. This scene takes place after the battle has ended (if it was sex, its the part where Dr.Strange lights up a cigarette). I wanted his body language to be relaxed as he levitates --while the bad guy is subdued and on a virtual 'leash'. I feel Strange's power is less physical as it is mental... so even though it's usually really flamboyant with all the pyrotechnics. I wanted his center of power, to be more internalized in this scene.

The video game is "Marvel Vs."
Not a gamer here... (I never even got to see this particular sequence animated.)
But I hear it was a fun one to play.

I like that you like her, BRUNO.
wait until you see what she looks like on the wellome screen to the game...


No one was more surprised than I was.:wow:
(I designed the art to only be seen from the waist up...
but they printed the whole thing... sort of)

They are a really clever bunch... and really nice to work for. :)

Sorry, I don't have his number... but I'm sure the Eye of Agamotto can look into it for you.
I'll have my people, call his people, and get back to your people with the digits.

Thanks man... he's magically delicious--

I've always been a fan of Dr. Strange--
He was like the James Bond of the magic corner of the Marvel Universe.
All kinds of cool 'gadgets' - apprentices with benefits ...a total badass.
Whatta RockStar! :D
