About this drawing

The Incredible Hulk (2008) is the second recent big-screen adaptation of the Marvel Comics character.  I haven't seen the 2003 movie directed by Ang Lee, but I saw this current one on an IMAX screen.  It is directed by Louis Leterrier and stars Edward Norton as Dr Bruce Banner, who as a result of a scientific experiment gone wrong, transforms into a giant green monster when provoked.  The film does not waste much time in setup — it introduces the characters and then gets to the action.  Banner is a fugitive and is hiding out in Brazil — when the US Army locates him, one of the soldiers they send after him, Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) becomes a bit too interested in what makes Banner the Hulk.  A very entertaining movie with a great music score too.

Of course, after watching the movie I was very inspired and did this drawing the next morning.  It's a simple yet powerful image from the movie showing Banner transforming into the Hulk.  The drawing was done with oil pastels, but after scanning it I turned it into a mockup comic book cover.  The text below ("The strangest man of all time!!  Is he man or monster or... is he both?") is taken from the original 1960s Incredible Hulk comic.

Article writing is also a excitement, if you know then you can write otherwise it
is complicated to write.

I don't know if it's just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with
your site. It appears as if some of the text on your posts are running off the
screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my web
browser because I've had this happen before. Thanks

I believe what you said made a bunch of sense. However, what about
this? suppose you added a little content? I mean,
I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you
added a title to possibly grab a person's attention? I mean Gallery is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create article titles to grab people to open the links.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested
about everything've written. In my opinion, it could bring
your posts a little bit more interesting.

This will be the member of the family that produces trouble in order
to deter attention through the substance abuser.
