TORCH (C)

I suppose this could easily be the Fantastic Four's Human Torch instead of the Golden Age Human Torch, who is now referred to simply as The Torch, but I like to think that a flaming robot from the old days would have a messier looking flame than the organic one that Johnny Storm puts off. *cough* nerd *cough*
Oh, and the 'c' composition is a bit more on the nose with this one since a few folks said they had a hard time making out the letter composition on the last couple days. :)

I actually prefer the other pieces mainly because the compositions aren't as 'on the nose'. They were more interesting because of it. Just my opinion is all...

Dec.

I agree with Declan. The work we had to do to figure out how it made the letter was part of the fun. I hope D is a little bit harder still.

I'll third that.

I'll fourth that, although the more literal representation makes sense in light of the character that you chose to highlight. I like the compositional insight with respect to the "grittier" feel of The Torch's flames. Good idea, CS!

I think it rules! There is always something to learn from your compositional skills, Chris. You are really an inspiration for me.

Can't wait for Area 10!

I guess I'll be the voice of dissent and just say I dug the sketch. I like the texture of it and there's a real life to the flames. Great job Chris!

Beautiful simplicity, as always.

Screw all that noise up top. You draw pretty!

I don't think we were complaining about the composition. I never have a thing negative to say about Chris. My complaint was just in people not being able to follow the sketches.

Obviously, his Torch is outstanding. And the C works for him. But the A and B sketches I dug because you had to LOOK for the letter. It wasn't out and out given to you.

Great rendering of the flame. Reminds me a little of Chris Weston's take in First Family.
