Great topics this week man! And I always love to be first:
Super quick TaskMaster:
Some sketches for Silver Spider (i like these and will probably do a more finished sketch):
Weekly Sketch Group #243
Welcome to another installment of the Weekly Sketch Group. Manji, the creator of the weekly sketch group, is still out looking for the magic pencil of Dilrond (+3 vs. Nerds), so I will continue to fill in for him until he gets his mojo back. If you have any ideas for a topic you would like to see in a future sketch group, PM me the details and I'll endeavor to include it in a future installment! Anybody can join the weekly sketch group, just pick one of the topics below, sketch it, and post it up in this thread for everyone to admire!
And now, (drum roll please) this weeks topics:
1. The Taskmaster: Evil Drill Sergeant of newbie supervillains
2. Rogue: Hot X-babe with the Skunk-hairdo
3: Original Character or Concept:
The Silver Spider
The concept behind the character is pretty simple: a kid sidekick loses his mentor, but instead of growing up and assuming the mantle he turns vigilante.
For design, here's the basics.
SS was an acrobat type, like Robin. He's not a muscle guy like the Punisher, but wiry like Spider-Man or Invincible. He carries two silver guns with silver spiders inlaid black grips. The feel should be like a gunfighter or an old pulp hero - black duster maybe, or a black coat. The face should start out like the classic Robin bolo mask or Invincible's mask, but warped into something covering the face with a spider-like design (maybe the body of the spider covers the mouth with legs wrapping around). Rest of the costume is artist's choice, as well as the hair.
Think if Dick Grayson grew up to become the Punisher instead of Nightwing.
And there you have it, my fellow Sketch Groupers, sharpen those pencils and look sharp!
Oooooh... I've never drawn Taskmaster. Silver Spider interests me too though. Hmmm.

@Hyde: Cool Taskmaster portrait, nice job on that Silver Spider sketch page! Good way to start things off this week!
@girdoggy: Cool Silver Spider illustration! Very dramatic!
And here's a Taskmaster fighting with Captain America to keep things rolling along this week:
Great stuff so far guys, I especially like the Silver Spider pieces. Excellent work as always guys.
Nice work guys i had a go at The Silver Spider i did not think i had made him silver enough so i added chainmail vest protective and silvery.I meant to give him dyed silver/grey hair but i forgot.

If you like what you see,theres always something else at ditch-scrawls.deviantart.com
Ditch - That is an AWESOME design for the mask!
Marooney - Task Master and Cap.... that's why you're my hero...
GirDoggy - I really tried to work the spider's legs into the eyes of a mask, but none of mine were even half as cool as yours. And that high contrast hood with the spider is spot on. Great work and Great sketch.
These topics are so much fun, and my sketches are really working for me. I'll have no problem getting all 3 this week. Here's Rogue in all her 80's glory:
