The Making of Frank Cho’s Giant Sized Man-Thing

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Wow. Thank you all for the incredible response to my giant-sized Man-Thing. (That joke never gets old.) The response was positively overwhelming. So as a treat today, I’m gonna share with you my step-by-step process in drawing that monster double page spread.

As you can see, most of the vegetation and figure work were no more than mere scribbles on the page during the early and middle stages. I was literally figuring out the composition and balancing the art throughout the drawing AND the inking process. Very stressing and dangerous method. But I lucked out, things all turned out okay at the end.

You can check out the entire Man-Thing scene in Savage Wolverine #4, coming out in April at all fine comic shops.
