Never read much Marvel growing up, as I was more of a Fantagraphics and Indie chick. Except for when I was around five or six. Briefly I got into Fantastic Four, and Silver Surfer. That ended when images of Silver Surfer began to give me nightmares, and my mother promptly switched me to the Harvey characters, such as Richie Rich, Wendy The Good Witch, etc. In my late teens I got into Sandman, but other than the character Death, Sandman didn’t hold my interest for too long.
Two years ago, me and my boyfriend were in a local Queens comic book store. He showed me Rocket Raccoon.
Rocket Raccoon started out as a minor character in 1976 before getting his own mini-series during the 1980s. Now he’s made a comeback. Rocket even stands to be the potential breakout character in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy.
Here’s a quick sketch I did yesterday, June 6, 2014. Done with pencil, Copic and Tomboy markers. Copics are the best colored markers in my opinion. Tomboys aren’t bad either, but Copics rule.
