Just a short and sweet Thanos Commission I’m doing for a fan I met at a store signing.  He is collecting different artists doing their own interpretations of the classic Marvel villain.  I’ll always identify Thanos with the following four items as visual keys…

#1- The Infinity Gauntlet

#2- The 70’s Anime inspired helmet

#3- the psycho eyes and ever present smile

#4- the wacked out ribbed chin

I put all of them in the piece, and had a nice overlap of hand over face and shoulder to build depth. The piece ended up being a fairly simple, but effective composition to get what I remembered about Thanos into one coherent pinup.
