the RECKONING




This is the OA1 redition of the Black Manta and his revenge against Xebel. 

The mystery of David's origin, his imprisonment in the Bermuda Triangle and his son being the new Aqualad started in Brightest Day. We have yet to find out what is exactly going on with the Black Knight of the seven seas but he is definitely kicking asses all over the DCU right now. And at the present moment he's overseeing the Tiger Cage. 

Enemies Be Ware...Here there be Monsters.


The Young Justice version of Black Manta is absolutely the toughest 
most bad ass character on the DC planets. 

What I tried to do with this guy is take what I like from the current comic book and the animated series and produce the ultimate assassin. 
I think the idea is decent but the 7 year hiatus putting pen to paper is telling.







This week me and the fellas did sort of a cross blog posting of drawings.

    2. well keep going i like the direction it's heading in. one of these days you need to do a Bronze Tiger vs Black Manta piece this blog wouldn't be complete with out it. the Manta figure on the far right is the best that long neck look never made much sense to me i mean just think about how that would fit on someones head.

  2. Awesome, awesome work Tiger. Now I know why you wanted it colored in. I'm not the best at that believe it or not, but I could add some touches to it if you'd like.

    @Shlomo: No, those are all official DC Black Manta figures. The first one' form the Alex Ross Justice wave, The middle one is the one I have, the DCUC version, and the last one is the shit as hell DC Direct/DC Collectibles NU52 BM.

    Man is that version sweet as fuck, even if it lacks articulation.

  3. That is a sweet looking sketch mate - I can really picture those eyes blaring out through the water aye! Is it meant to look like a skull is in his jetstream too? Or are my eyes playing tricks? Either way it's a whole tonne of awesome right there.

    The hardest thing with B.M. is making the neck look right, and despite it being everywhere, I don't think the whole turtle neck thing looks right. Like your drawing and the first action figure do is the best way around things aye!

    1. Thanks Dan and yeah it was suppose to be a Xebel soldier that got sliced and diced on the way down. The tweeks to the picture didn't get done mate, I had to give you guys what I had. But I promise you man it felt really good to draw something. From now on I'm going to try and draw something every now and then.

    2. That would be awesome mr - you've got a really great taste in characters aye, so whenever you get round to it, I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  4. Looking forward to it, I hear on the drawing aspect man. I used to be good(or at least I thought so) and now.......I substitute that with doing what I do with skits and photo-shopping shit.

    But yeah, you should doodle here and there at least a couple days at a time.

  5. Bad-ass, man! He's all in our face and shit, excellent perspective! Totally dig it!!! Nice work- especially your take on his eyes. Thanks again for participating!
    As for the figures... I like my Black Manta with the longest neck and biggest head. -That... that sounds horrible. But you know what I mean! Middle figure is my favorite, though. I need to track that guy down...
