Dr. Doom:The Face of Evil by wrathofkhan Dr. Doom:The Face of Evil by wrathofkhan
My latest addition to what I hope would end up as a collection of portraits! :-)

The idea came up after getting this really cool Marvel Legends Icon Series Dr. Doom figure for 50% off at ToysR'Us. Besides, I always liked the character.

Anyway, I know my version of Doom's real face is inaccurate. I've seen earlier artworks and a bust without a mask, revealing that his face almost looks like Al Simmons' (Mc Farlane's "Spawn"). I thought of leaving some features that would give us an idea how handsome a man he was.

I still have some characters lined up for this "series", but I may not be able to update soon. I'm happy to tell you guys that I'm currently working on some character designs for a creator-owned project I'll be doing with a DC Comics writer. Please help me pray that we get a publisher's nod! Thanks!

Oh, but I find your depiction of Doom to be FAR more accurate than the boring, very generical design they recently gave him in the comics.
First, the original author of this character once drew him unmasked, and he wasn't disfigured.
Second, your design almost makes it look as if Doom intentionally disfigured himself by getting the mechanized part not just outside of his body, but inside of it.
And third, I've seen a lot of Doom fanarts and this drawing still is my most favorite, ever. :D

I'm confused. Sometimes he looks like he's disfigured under the mask, sometimes he looks like he's just got a tiny scar and he's obsessive. Which one is true? I don't know the character well....

....but if he -is- disfigured, this is the best concept about his disfigurement ever. I love how it seems to bring a physical connection to his armour, instead of being something he just happens to wear.

heh, don't thank me!, thank yourself!! you impress me to no end, on how you capture the detail of each, marvel/ DC character out there!!

plus your art style really reminds me of :iconalvinlee: a very respected member of the highly known :iconudoncrew:!!

and yeah PINOYS!!! FTW!!, and just to add, we pinoys have been showing the comic book industy what "we" got for many years already!! ;) ex: another awesome member of Udon crew, :iconlastscionz:, indie manga artist :iconbleedman:. Those peeps already broke the 1 million mark in their number of views :thumbsup:

AND I'm pretty sure You can too!!, all you need is alittle more publicity ( undiscovered treasure;))

"although" there is a good thing to being undiscovered.......... and that's...... you can reply to fans like me! hehe ( i bet people like the ones mentioned above get milions of messgaes per day!)

Wow. just... wow. man, I'm so overwhelmed by your message! And being set side by side by those wonderful and talented people you mentioned? man, that's too much, but thanks a lot!

hey, I may not have a million hits yet, but tell you what, I'm just as happy with how much i'm getting. And besides, getting less than 7k hits so far matters a lot already, eapecially if that 7k includes hits from people who REALLY matter!

And what do i mean with that?

Just today, after 2 days of internet sabbatical to focus on work, I opened my email and ---- I got 2 pencilling job offers from 2 big comic companies in the US! And they're offering me books to work on right after seeing my gallery here!God bless DA!

I know what you mean. Leinil Yu and the rest of the popular Pinoy artists we have wish to anwer each and every message they get, if given the time and chance. I'll make no promise, but if I get there, I'll try to respond to everyone. ;-)

Woah Amazing TWO!!? pencilng jobs from 2 big companies! kudos to you man!, and congratulations!!!,wow! I really hope you go far! and I wouldn't be surprised if those companies are marvel, dc, UdonCrew, toei, mc farlane, and other big companies that you were invited to work in!


"being set side by side by those wonderful and talented people you mentioned? man, that's too much"

Nope it's not too much, Your penciling skills actually rival :iconalvinlee:'s and I still find it hard to believe that a comic artist of your caliber remains to be unrecognized in deviant art!!( other than the 2 big companies)


ahhh the curse of popularity.... not being able to respond to fanmail, well it's actually normal not having
the time to answer every 2 millionTH letter that comes to you...... an experience a certain man can relate to, a man you know very well...... a man like neil gaiman!! and other like jack kirby, stan lee, bob kane

Man, it better get picked up. The fact that you aren't doing a monthly comic is insane. I swear to you that I am not blowing smoke up your ass when I say that your stuff is more appealling than most of what is being pushed through Marvel and DC. I am not a fan of the styles they are pushing at all, on the whole.
As far as the pic goes, I like it, kinda gives a two face vibe a lil bit. Just enough handsome to drive him crazy.
