11" x 17" illustration of The Thing vs. Dragon Man, no backgrounds.  The details are:

- portrait orientation

- please draw The Thing with the "dinosaur hide" appearance you depicted in Fantastic Four #238 to #245

a heated battle with neither character having a distinct advantage

(Shading down the right side is on this image, not the original.)

Another incredible piece.

Favorite parts:
1. The Thing holding on/getting leverage by grabbing the lower jaw of Dragon Man. 
2. The ink strokes on Dragon Man's wing.

Here's a compliment for you, JB: my 8 year old son just saw this and asked, "is this by Jack Kirby?"

For no particular reason, I'm not really a fan of the dinosaur-hide Thing, but it works better for this matchup IMO.

Outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love the texture and shading. Even tho this is 11" x 17" it feels like it is a lot bigger than what it is.

Congrats to the commissioner.

Congrats to the commissioner.

Rough and tumble!
Love when a piece goes off the page. There's too much Dragon Man to be contained here.
