The Defenders by MattKaufenberg The Defenders by MattKaufenberg
Some sketch cards for SpringCon. I'm going try and make a few of these to have at my table. I might redo the hulk a bit...not completely happy with him. And of course i had to add the Black Knight statue since i always loved that part. Defenders was an awesome book.

I thought i'd take a cue from ~DocShaner's mugshots and add the logo and some texture to them in Photoshop.

Each card is 2.5 x 3.5 in. on Strathmore Artist Cards.

Marker and pen.

Don't add the logo for the cons, they will come down on you like a ton of bricks, trust me! almost went to court for it.

Oh no, that's just for the online one. They're all separate cards actually like my other ones.

And yikes! Hope it got worked out.

I hate you so much right now. ;)

These are terrific, Matt! And I think Hulk looks good! Don't know what you'd change. If you were to put out a set of these, I may have to buy it! :D

Hahaha! Glad you're liking them. And the Hulk is growing on me. I think it works for this group. I'll probably try him again sometime but he's good for now. And i'll have to keep that in mind:D

Nice stuff (I wouldn't change a thing, personally). What's the story with the Black Knight statue and why are they all crying? I only read the book sporadically...

Thanks! I think the Hulk bugs me a bit because it's not exactly how i wanted him to turn out. I still like it though.

Well it's only the last two who are crying. You know how emotional the hulk can be and as for the black knight...he's crying because he's been turned to stone. :) (here's the info on him: [link])

The red noses on Doctor Strange, Namor and the Hulk remind me of the old 'Asterix The Gaul' books - that was a sign that someone had drunk a lot! :lol:

Namor probably drinks a lot of water...Baddump bump!

MattKaufenberg Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010
Yeah, i want to draw the other team of Defenders too (although Valkyrie was on most of them so i should draw her anyway:))

Nighthawk for sure. Love that costume.

DUDE!
I don't think you'll have ANY problems moving these. You should do up a bunch more and then use the proceeds from the sales of the originals to make a little Skutterfly card set. Then sell the sets.

Thanks Ryan! I think he might be one of my all-time favorites so far. I'm going to be doing a regular Black Knight too so that should be fun. He has such a great costume.
