In the Marvel Universe, Death is portrayed as a person, sometimes as a beautiful woman, sometimes as a skeleton in a purple cloak. All she is missing is the scythe. And nobody loves death more than Thanos. Thanos is probably one of the greatest bad guys ever, created by (I believe) Jim "Cosmic is my Middle Name" Starlin. Thanos is always trying to impress Lady Death (TM & copyright Brian Pulido) by killing people for her. In this case he is about to sacrifice the Silver Surfer to her. But she's not impressed. Poor Thanos, he can never find a love connection. He should have just used J Date. Or eHarmony. Colors by Dean "Spunky" White.
The inked piece card. I blow up the rough thumbnail and lightbox it with pencil onto bristol board to ink. Sometimes if the thumbnail is really tight I just go directly to ink.
Here is the rough thumbnail idea. It was approved with no changes! Easy!

Except maybe to add that I'm proud to say I drew this all by myself without looking at any reference material. Because it's a cube. And it's cosmic. The Kirbyesque cosmic space was fun to do, but I probably messed it up in the coloring.*
*Note: the thumbnail above is not the actual colors, click on it for a larger version with the proper color scheme. For some reason, Blogger compressed or corrupted it into a weird negative image. Looks like Christmas in the Negative Zone!
