Venom Dark Shadow by artist Tom Kelly by TomKellyART Venom Dark Shadow by artist Tom Kelly by TomKellyART
This was for the Challengers Assemble Sketch blog, this week the was theme was "your fav spiderman villian". This theme I did this VENOM an alien creature that takes over its host and feeds of him, Venoms webs are kinda like a dark ink or goo that it emits. The reason Venom is my favorite is he is a character with most of spiderman's abilities as well as it's origin was born out of the mini series "Secret wars".
Most people favor the more classic villains such as Green Goblin or Doc Ock but for me Venom is far more fun plus he looks alot cooler in basic black and sharp teeth. This was alot of fun to make and if you get a chance check out all the other cool art or at the Challengers Assemble blog, plus they have killer art in them!!!.

There is lots and lots of more way cool art over at the Challengers Assemble blog.
here is the link. Go that site out it's really cool. Also I Totally Totally encourage everyone to participate in the sketch blog it's tons and tons of fun as well as a great creative challenge.

I created this illustration using Pen and ink , then adobe Photoshop CS6 with the pen tool and several layers, I used the pen tool and then did some free distort magic to make a few elements.

I like the demon aspect of the face and the flow of the webbing.

Great colors, contrast and image.

hey thanks! I like to make venom more of an other worldly monster rather than just the more pumped up version of spiderman.

I agree, my own Venom was very HR Giger inspired. I like to take the idea of the character and push it further in the direction of its inspiration/essence. Hmmm I got to get around to doing some hero/villain redesigns, its been a while.
