11x17 Thought I'd make it another "on the board" shot, this one before the pencils are erased.

No one will ever get bored at looking at those two going at it.

Unbreakable bones or near-unbreakable?

Hulk is about to find out.

SNAP! Oh, near-unbreakable then :)

Excellent commission! They both look really fierce.

Ah, the Whim of Iron again. After several years of Wolverine's adamantium skeleton, Shooter suddenly decided that was "unrealistic" and our favorite Canadian found his bones "laced with adamantium". Not at all sure how that would make them indestructible.

(Pure coincidence that Shooter waited until I left the book to make this pronouncement. That I would have fought him tooth and claw had nothing to do with it. Nothing, I tell you!)

The problem with the whole 'laced with' idea is that shouldn't Wolverine's healing factor, especially as ridiculously amped up as its been shown to be, expel the foreign metal from his body and grow the rest of his bone back? 

If his skeleton is completely replaced, his healing factor could compensate for the lack of bone marrow, but wouldn't force his skeleton out of his body, leaving him mush.

Somebody hit the jackpot on this one. The head in hand aspect adds a real danger that is hard to convey between two incredibly durable opponents!

Can commissioners request that pencil lines be left on the board instead of erased? I think it would add a neat element to any given piece.

Looks like he is going to rip his head off!

Since we are talking about his adamantium, should he be
able to do that?

He should be able to. He would just be pulling vertebral joints apart not actually breaking the vertebrae.

I like it coz I love both characters, but it It looks a bit like Hulk has two left hands.  I can sort of get my right thumb nail in that exposure holding an object and twisting my arm - but it's hard.  Also, is Wolverine straddling Hulks shoulder?  I'm lost finding his right leg and am assuming he's mounted Hulk like a horse and what looks like Hulks trapezius muscle is Wolverine's thigh.  So used to looking at color comics with color to guide my eye.  Hulk as a thicker black outline and I'm trying to focus on that. The pencil residue is probably throwing me off, too.  Seeing the outline of a foot in the foreground.  It would be good to see it without the pencil.

The Hulk does it for me in this commission.  
Also, the sense of motion with the speed lines.  Hard to portray but JB does it so well.  A thrust upward as Wolverine slashes....
Love it.
Thanks for sharing the pencils as well.

That's how I see it… With a bit of Wolverine's right thigh showing next to the
left side of Hulk's neck.

****

[sarcasm font] You mean an adamantium skeleton doesn't render Wolverine impervious to soft tissue damage?  Well, at least he can put his head right back on his shoulders and it will heal right back up, [end sarcasm font]

I prefer the Wolverine of my youth.
