How did you decide upon Hawkeye? Also, have you read the current series, written by Matt Fraction?
Thanks for the question, Rock! :) I actually didn’t decide on Hawkeye; the full story is available in the THI FAQ, but the short answer is that the original artists Gingerhaze and Blue thought of using him.
I’ve started on Fraction’s Hawkeye— and absolutely love it! They’re all sitting in my Comixology queue, waiting for when I have a “quiet” evening to catch up. I’ll probably post a review & comments on my wordpress or tumblr when I’m done.
So I saw someone had done the other statue in this image, but I thought that the Phoenix statue could be done as well. So I did. I actually had to widen his torso by a lot, but to the sculptors credit, men do have wider ribcages than women.
Hi, THI (oh, crap, I just realized your acrostic is just like my nickname…), today I saw a pic of a brazilian soccer player called “Hulk” and I immediately though “This is SO the hawkeye initiative”. Well, i don’t know if this one is gonna be shared and I don’t want to break any protocol, but I suggest you should at least take a look at that!
