A is for Ant-Man (and the Wasp)
Marvel A-Z week 1: Ant-man and the Wasp

When i started with Scotch Corner i planned on only ever putting up new material created specifically for the site (even if it was only a post-it pad sketch or the like) and hopefully play about with my inking and digital colouring etc., but over time i lapsed into posting old work. I think it was John who said something recently that drew my attention to the fact that we had all gone in that direction- so, New Year's resolution starts here this week.
I'm aiming to put up a new sketch or finished illustration every week this year and in order to motivate me and keep me on track i'm going to try to work through various themes. We had discussed theme weeks way back at the start of Scotch Corner but they never really took off due to worries over paying work deadlines - so see the Eclectic Micks recent posts over the last month or so to see what i mean.
So the first 26 weeks the theme set is Marvel A-Z. Unlikely to be any pencils for this set as i'm only doing rough block bodies in pencil and doing most of the work at the ink stage -if time allows i'll also digitally colour each image. I've already decided what quite a few of these will be, but if any body has suggestions for the letters I, K, O, U, X, Y and Z i'd love to hear them as i am still swithering or just can't think of characters for those letters.
But more importantly i'd love to hear suggestions for the follow up themes (which will probably be a months worth at a time rather than half a year - although an A-Z of DC is the obvious choice, i might leave that for a bit.) So a few initial ideas i've had are: Horror film characters, characters from Star Wars, characters done in the style of artist X, etc. - really willing to consider anything on this so look forward to hearing some ideas. Might put it to the vote closer to the time if a few strong contenders appear.
