Mantis by AdamHughes Mantis by AdamHughes
Year: 2010
Client: Private Commission
Media: Pencil, PITT pen, COPIC marker, Berol Prismacolor pencil on 13.5" X 8.5" Strathmore Drawing paper

This is the sketch for the guaranteed eBay sketch done for Baltimore Comic-Con. Before anyone asks "You did this at a show?" - I didn't. I worked on it from home, and took a day on it. The winner is a friend of mine, so I wanted it to be extra awesome with chocolate sauce and jimmies.

Also, Mantis is an old-school AVENGERS character. I have no idea what her deal is, especially those things coming off her head. I infodumped my childhood.

BTW Adam: Mantis is probably one of the best Martial Artist in comicdom, So skillfull and powerfull she can take down guys as strong as Thor(and did it twice!)Trained be the Kree Priests of Pama to be the Celestial Madonna(loooong story)Shes been hero/villian/and back to hero again, and has the distinction of having appeared in 3 different comic companies because shes Steve Englehart's creation,
Marvel, DC, Image, and back to Marvel all in different guises! A curious creation but no one to mess with in a fight! I'm doing a drawing of her vs. Streetfighter II's Chun-Li as of this writing! But your version rocks! (Like everything you do!) C'ya!
