The Fantastic Four

24 April, 2016 | Posted in Sketches

The Fantastic Four is a fictional superhero team appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The group debuted in The Fantastic Four #1, and was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist/co-plotter Jack Kirby, who developed a collaborative approach to creating comics with this title that they would use from then on.

These four individuals gained their superpowers after being exposed to cosmic rays during a scientific mission to outer space. The team consists of Reed Richards a.k.a Mister Fantastic, a scientific genius and the leader of the group, who can stretch his body into incredible lengths and shapes, Susan Storm Richards a.k.a Invisible Woman, who can render herself invisible and later project powerful force fields, Benjamin Grimm a.k.a Thing, who possesses tremendous superhuman strength, durability, and endurance due to the nature of his stone-like flesh and Jonathan Storm a.k.a Human Torch, Susan’s younger brother, who can generate flames, surround himself with them and fly.

I used pencil to lay down the rough outlines and Micron pens (08 and 03) to ink.
