Bizzaro Inspiration

Get ready for the strange tale of a drawing inspired by an action figure that was inspired by a DC comic created by a toy company owned by a man who drew Spiderman! First, let’s meet the toy, it’s Bizzaro Superman!

Bizzaro asks the hard questions, like "Murrr?"

Let’s try to sort this out: MacFarlane Toys created this action figure based on Bizzaro Superman which is a character owned by DC Comics. Todd MacFarlane owns McFarlane Toys and was a well known Spiderman artist before he famously left to found Image Comics. This figure was then posed by my son, Will, and he requested I draw a likness from it which is where the story ends.

I guess it isn't really that strange, more confusing and pointless, but anyway here is the drawing, my inks, and a watercolored version for good measure!

Wonkiness removed and more dazed look added

Bizzaro no understand point of blog post?

That's it for now.. stay frosty.
