Voila.



Ha!  The miracle of PhotoShop.  :)

Edit:  Updated mine.  Took me forever to get it to show right side up.

I'm very proud of this drawing as I drew it from a Jim Lee YouTube video and I am not the best drawer in the world.

Switched!  This one's a character of one of my fave marvel series by Bill Mantlo, Michael Golden called the Micronauts - Acroyear.  Great series (based off of a set of toys) that I think really is the best (even as various other publishers have tried to reboot it a number of times).

It was the only photo saved on my work computer when I joined.   For the life of me I can't remember why I had downloaded it.

I changed mine to a photo of me so people would know me at meet-ups.

It seemed the most appropriate given the type of forum and it always brings warm fuzzies  since that was a really great SDCC for me.

Mine is a War Machine (Iron Man) helmet I started making a few years back out of paper. It's called pepakura which apparently means paper craft/model. You basically take a 3D model of something and export it down to a flat constructable paper (and tabs) which you can then cut out and build into your own model. The more detail you want, the more complicated it gets (i.e. more pieces and more gluing). It took me 9+ hours just to cut out all the pieces. After that, I glued it all together (used a hot glue gun) which took quite some time, as well. I put one coat of epoxy on it to harden it up a bit and that's where I stopped. I always tell myself I need to finish it, but never have the time to do it. So, it sits in my garage waiting for me to be motivated and confident enough to finish it and dare to wear it at Comic-Con.
