Tom Valente is a commercial artist whose done work for places like Cracked, and more recently contributed to the Justice League of America Rittenhouse Archives sketch card series. Thanks to the Martian Manhunter Fotolog, I was directed to his blog, which offered up two illustrations of the Manhunter from Mars.
Just a quick watercolor sketch of Martian Manhunter. I've always liked this character and he's also one of my fiancè favorites.
We've previously showed off Valente's work on the 2007 "ICE COLD MILK and AN OREO COOKIE" sketch and its colorized version, 2009's "LATE NIGHT SNACK...". I prepped most of this post in early November of last year, aside from editing the image for this blog's proportions. I chopped off a massive chunk from the top and bottom, then widened and digitally altered the piece, so you really have to click the link to see it as the artist intended. Also, I know I promised more in-depth posts this weekend, but I've fought hard through distractions (usual stuff, like shopping for a new bed and showering with a monkey,) to build up some surplus on my other blogs. I hate to neglect the Idol-Head, but there'll be some goodies this week to make up for it (like the last of the recent con sketches in my possession...)
