The Scarlet Witch by RobertMacQuarrie1
The Scarlet Witch
With the Age of Ultron opening today (In North America.  Europe and other parts of the world get it almost a full week early, for some insane reason, which makes avoiding spoilers all the more difficult), what better time to honor one of it's new characters- the lovely Wanda Maximoff a.k.a The Scarlet Witch.

Personally, the Scarlet Witch's costume is one of my most favorite female costumes.  It's incredibly sexy, but without being trashy.  It may just be a simple red bathing suit, headdress and cape, but it's simplicity helps in it's appeal.  The pink leotard both covers Wanda as well as giving the illusion of nudity.  The headdress is a nice design for her head, but also allows her face to be visible and her long flowing locks to be displayed.  Sadly, we won't be seeing THIS outfit onscreen, although it is perfectly understandable reasons. 

Still, it is great look and a lot of fun to draw.

Daredevil by RobertMacQuarrie1
Daredevil
As with practically the rest of North America, my friend and I checked out the Daredevil Netflix series and were suitably impressed by the production.  I'm not in as much love with it as everyone else seems to be (Nothing too major, just that I think that there were some story hiccups here and there that stood out for me a bit too much) but it is still an enjoyable series. 

Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock was an excellent lead character.  Vincent D'Onoffiro stole the show as the Kinpin.  And the fight scenes were pretty impressive, and far more realistic than you'd normally see on television.  It's definitely worth checking out if you are comic book fan- and can stomach some intense violence.

So because of that, I was inspired to do up this image of Matt and the Kinpin.  This is also the third time I attempted to draw buildings, and I'm a little more satisfied with the result this time around, although I could still use some improvement.

Mystique-Change of Face- Harley Quinn by RobertMacQuarrie1
Mystique-Change of Face- Harley Quinn
Normally, when doing the Mystique- Change of Face series, I usually prefer to blend Mystique with characters exclusively from Marvel, and even then only characters that I've drawn before.  They are weird rules, I know, but they're the ones I try to stick by for the most part (With a few notable exceptions).  This drawing, however, has a bit of a unique history that inspired me to create this image.

I was at the Calgary Fan Expo recently, and as with any convention that tops well over 100,000 people in attendance, there are going to be a wide range of cosplayers.  And one such cosplayer had a costume that was one half Mystique and one half Harley Quinn.  It wasn't the same look that you see here, but it was enough to inspire me to do up an image featuring Mystique changing into Harley Quinn from DC.

OK, so, the image of Jared Leto's Joker have come out recently, and it's caused a bit of distress regarding the character's portrayal in the new "Suicide Squad" move.

blogs-images.forbes.com/markhu…

Now, the look IS unconventional.  I'll give you that.  Its not the Joker we are used to.  But then again, neither was this:

And I can remember the @#$storm that came about when it was announced Heath Ledger was going to play the Joker, and how people were complaining the character looked NOTHING like the character from the comics.  Then the Dark Knight happened, and everyone shut up about it.

And, let's remember that THIS Joker:

Was WILDLY different than THIS Joker:

m.cdn.blog.hu/su/supernaturalm…

Is Jared Leto's interpretation of the Joker going to be different?  Yes.  Is his look different than what came before?  Yes.  But that doesn't determine the quality of the performance.  As I pointed out, a different look for the Joker is nothing new, and just because the look doesn't match an individual's particular image of what they think the Joker should look like doesn't mean it will be a bad performance.  Again, the best example being Heath Ledger.  He looked like none of the traditional portrayals, but he knocked it out of the park. 

Really, all I'm asking for is for people to give it a chance.  It might not be your cup of tea, but we know that Jared Leto is a talented actor and his performance might just make the whole thing work and bring a new dimension to the Joker that we never saw before.  That's part of the purpose of an adaptation and in hiring different people in a familiar role- we want to see the new things they can bring to it, rather than just repeating the same thing over and over again.

And, when all is said and done, just remember- at least Leto bothered to shave his facial hair for the role. 
Optimus and Friends by RobertMacQuarrie1
Optimus and Friends
I was planning to attend this years Calgary Fan Expo this last weekend when I learned that Peter Cullen- the voice of Optimus Prime- was going to be attending.  I already decided to do a drawing of the Arrow to get Stephen Amell to sign it (Seen here: robertmacquarrie1.deviantart.c…) so I thought I'd get a signature from Peter Cullen as well.

....... until I learned that Peter wasn't doing autographs, and just meet and greets- which included an autograph, a certain bit of merchandise, and a photo with Peter himself- which was going for $184.00.  Which was WAY over my budget for the trip, so I decided to just avoid getting Peter's autograph and just leaving the image clean.

Just noticed you're discussing my recent CBR quarrel with Dan Slott over on the Crawlspace. I appreciate the effort you're taking in challenging the administration's decisions. I have talked at length with Doug Ernst about it and you can find screencaps of the entire conversation on his main blog, it'll  either eventually feature in a new article, but for now you can currently find in the comments section of the Joe Quesada article he put up.

I have a rather complusive habit of trying to rejoin forums that want little to do with me after a period of time, mainly out of a stubborn need to put the last word in on a subject, it does not mean I am a persistent online troll as Thomas Mets likes to think, and I hold no malice towards him for his decisions to ban me multiple times, nor do I hold a grudge against Dan for losing his cool. I got a little arrogant the previous night and probably should not have said I was screencapping the conversation, that was done chiefly to preserve evidence of yet another Marvel writer stepping over professional and personal boundaries. You are bringing up strong points in my defense, but do not let your exchange with Mets get too heated on the forum. I believe the CS team will step in when appropriate, but I do not want any further damaging consequences spilling out of my actions.

The main sticking point with Mets is that you were banned multiple times, using several different account names, including being banned from Crawlspace.  His main argument in that regard was that you were deliberately trying to hide who you are, and that you were a "Ban-Evader."

This is the main issue he is using to try and undermine your position as to why you posted under multiple accounts and names.  If you could clarify the situation, it might leave him (even) less to work with.

I never normally hide who I am, I find it against my character to do so. Would it be easier to front a false persona as Slott would have you think? Yes, but it would not be me. Dan seemed to indicate me positing in other sections of the forum to talk about things like the Batgirl variant being pulled was part of my "cover story" too, and not, y'know, me just expressing a view point on a SJW matter gone haywire like everyone else.

Like I said, it's just a bit of stubbornness on my part that compels me to keep coming back, I have tried mending my ways several times, and while Slott seems to think I post the same old "bile" every time, all I point out is I find dissatisfaction in how Spider-Man is presently handled , which I am not alone in saying or thinking even on CBR, as there are other posters there that have expressed concern.  I still have good things to say about his projects on occasion, and that will probably continue. In the past I have had some heated exchanges, sometimes I catch myself going too far, and sometimes I'm temporarily or permanently banned before I can clear up my own mistakes, I am, however, perfectly aware of my actions and I still take full responsibility for them.

Feel free to send this Mets way too (either in a PM on the Crawlspace or otherwise, as I feel the mods at the CrawlSpace are, as I predicted, itching to pull the trigger on the thread.

"Yes Mets, I DID suffer a breakdown after reading OMD, it was not the sole catalyst for it, but it was the icing on the cake after a traumatic year and coping with the next three years led to a period of gradual deterioration that left me in hospital.  It was hardly an "implausibly bad joke" from my experience as many people have sustained the same levels of trauma at similar things that are perceived to be "over the top" to people who are not normally privy to what goes on in anyone's heads, kindly do not attempt to get into mine"
