Ha! That brings back memories, Clint!

Looks like John used the same technique as the cartoon for the bees!

Wow awesome!  I kind of thought that Clint's was after Joe's Fourth World piece.  I think these monster pieces keep getting better and better.  I love the poor guy at the bottom being "swarm"-ed.

Congrats again Clint.

Almost looks like the bees were stamped on?

Whatever you did, that's easily the coolest Swarm pic I've ever seen!

Apropos of bees. We just had this news story over here that a plane had to land again just after take-off due to technical problems. A bumble bee had managed to fly in through the pitot tube (which is a needle in a haystack situation). So a single bumble bee took down a whole plane.  Imagine the havoc you can wreak with a whole swarm.

Clint came out of nowhere, and took the Crown from the former champ Ari, and ran with it.  Clint's commissions have been splendid choices. JB's been on top of his game with these Marvel Monster choices!  The whole Clint series has been a joy.  I know most here have enjoyed seeing something different from the Chief.  Nice.  Real nice!  Thanks.

This has got to "bee" one of my favorite commissions!  Beautiful, but terrifying at the same time, and the angle of the shot to see beneath Swarm's foot adds such realism.  Great one, John!   I would love to see Swarm fight Ant-Man and his swarm of ants!

Mask off the outline, used a sponge for the swarm, then use pen for adding
a bit of refined texture. Maybe?



No "maybe" about it! That's exactly right.

JB, do you use liquid mask (friska?) or a simple piece of paper?
