The Mighty Blue Avenger Visits Rochester

The Tick visits Rochester

In the midst of the wild variety of sketch cards I did for last week’s blog I placed one sketch of myself as The Tick. That was the card that got the most responses and it inspired me to do this week’s doodle.

This rendition is a combo of the color of the live action Tick, the musculature of the comic book Tick and the face of the animated Tick all filtered through my style and placed on a Rochester landmark. I hand drew and inked the figure and background on separate pages, then scanned them and digitally colored them. The clouds in the back were created in Photoshop by filling a layer with blue, rendering clouds and then sizing them to fit. This was my fun response to insomnia induced by coffee after dinner (will I never learn).

    Aww man! The Tick visited Roch-cha-cha and I missed it? I’m sure his wave of destruction will be on the news, though. 🙂

    Amazing drawing!!!! What a great idea, Rob–taking the Tick to Rochester. How about taking The Tick all over the globe, starting with the places you have been, or hope to visit one day? What a fun trip that would be. The Tick in Scotland, I love it!!! I can see him now with a kilt and bag pipes. Hee, hee.

    BTW: I never knew The Tick had toes! You learn something new everyday at Doodlehoose. 🙂
