Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Terry Huddleston, the American artist coming come face to face with his talents, by taking the most distinctive heads in comics' culture and blowing them up pop art style.
The Penguin - my Mum's all-time favourite bat-rouge - has rarely looked more calculating, but that's what I love about Terry's portraits. You can tell just what period he is referencing in each one. It's his own take, while staying true to that character's particular landmark artist. Nightcrawler/ Dave Cockrum is proof of that!
Remember when Beast looked like that? You could easily tile these pieces and make a mean feature wall for a spare room or office.
While Hawkman there shows he's no one's joke, the range of characters Terry covers is astonishing. From Dr Fate to Carnage, Aquaman and Namor, his portfolio is as bold as it is brave, and a perfect fit for 'Bright and Fun Comics Week' here on IADW!
Heck, he even brings out the bold in 'bad' doesn't he Deathstroke?
Geez, if Slade Wilson can make even Terry's all-ages friendly art look terrifying, no wonder he had the Titans on the run! For the rest of the portraits in the series (and a whole lot more), visit Huddleston's online gallery after the jump.
