Fan fiction she venom experiment. I admit, I rushed a lot of it but I was getting sick of the sight of it, so I published it here to get the thorn out of my side. I was going for a Dave Mckean/Clayton Crain look.
Thank you! I'm glad you said "something you'd see in an actual comic" as I'm going to comic in London next month and this strip will probably be the flag ship of my portfolio. I'm giving the artwork a polish (as this current strip I rushed).
I also find it interesting you used the term "poetic". As I created the artwork first, then went through a tragic breakup, then created the monologue to complement the strip.
Ha! I love how people are getting that the red head IS Mary Jane without me having to spell it out. Yeah my design of her is a more modern day short hair style and a more musclier, I wanted her to look like a girl that could kick your ass whilst still looking attractive.
Wow, flattered that this is your second comment and seem keen for me to continue the story, thank you!
I am investing in a cintiq and this comic will be one of the first things I will spruce up for my portfolio for this years comic con. But it will be awhile if I decide to carry on the story, but do expect what's already here to get a huge make over!
If anyone has any ideas on where to take the story next I am more than open to suggestions!
Haha, well I really dug it. This sort of very well done comic paneled She-Venom themed story just doesn't really pop up often, so asking for a continuation or more of it is just natural for us fans out there.
As for the next storyline... I've always figured that if MJ (or any really hot woman) was host to the costume, rather then use brute strength all the time to accomplish her goals, she'd try to use her feminine charms as her normal self to gain the confidence of someone only to eviscerate them in the end. Maybe have her showing some super cleavage in a revealing outfit to a mob boss or something, with a kind of "We needed more practice, to become a better killing machine. That meant recognizing and using all of our unique strengths to our advantage. One of those strengths being our human half's sex appeal." ... line of dialogue. Only to squeeze his head between her symbiote coated hands squashing it like a melon.
You could also do some sort of MJ-training montage, something the comics did very often with Brock. Basically have MJ trying to benchpress something while mentally/verbally rambling about her Spider-man hatred, getting tired and unable to do the exercise... and then the symbiote oozing out and making her go all destructive with her surroundings.
Or, for an entirely different approach: have MJ talk about the benefits of being the host, similar to that Marvel comics card set years back that showed all the various powers the alien would bestow Brock. She could say how nice it feels, how strong it makes her, how cool it is having unlimited clothing, how convenient it makes traveling, how it can make her vanish with it's camoflage powers, etc etc.
Those are just a few brainstormed ideas...
But yeah, please don't just let this be a one off, do something else.
Thank you very much! I did want to carry on the story but because of the youtube video deviantart posted about 'fan art' copyright, I chickened out carrying on. But I'm glad you enjoyed how short it is.
