“Where would I be if I wasn’t an Avenger? I don’t even want to think about it. Okay, I just thought about it. I’d be in jail. I’d be in jail or dead because up until the point that I met my teammates who became my friends who became a family, I didn’t have anything that even resembled teammates or friends or family. I was left to my own devices, and that really wasn’t a good choice for me.”—Clint Barton, Avengers Assemble: An Oral History of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (via askclint)
How long does it take for you to draw your responses for Ask A Shield Agent? Your style is awesome and I was curious.
Aw thank you! You’ve made my night.
It depends on what I’m doing with an answer. A line of talking heads might take a couple of hours, but several panels of two more more characters might take 6-8 hours. Animation adds time, naturally, but as long as I keep it simple it evens out. I use the Ask A Shield Agent responses as warm-ups for drawing comic pages, so I usually spend a couple of hours on one a day.
Add to that the 12 years I spent drawing before I found a style I was happy with, and there you go!
The best part is going back and watching it after seeing “Captain America” and “Thor” and making weird-ass AU’s in your head about Steve and Heimdall, and Daddy Winchester…SUPERCAPTAINTHOR crossovers for everyone!
Oh god. Okay. This is a hard one because I fucking love movies. I have to divide it up a little. All time favorite - Muppet treasure Island. Usually tied for favorite - The Losers. Favorite series - Back to the Future.
Hah. Slipping over in the bathroom and dislocating/shattering my knees again. This is the only thing that really, honestly scares me. Busting my legs again would literally be the end of my life. I’m not kidding. The bathroom thing is weirdly specific, I know, but I’m not sure where it comes from. But it’s bad enough that if I see it in a movie or show, I’m physically sick. Puking, every time.
