Timber Wolf - Legion of Super-Heroes

Another Legion request for today, Brin Londo, also known as Timber Wolf. I think someone requested him but I don't remember who. The first image is ink on 11" x 17" Strathmore Bristol Board.
Followed by the image colored in Photoshop.

This is my favorite look for Timber Wolf. And again, a Dave Cockrum classic. Brin didn't always look like this. He did look more human back when he was Lone Wolf and did revert back to a more human look after this particular design. You can see another version of him that I did a while back right here. And because Brin's history is pretty complicated (and because I am exhausted) here is a link to the Wiki about him. :) How lazy can I get?

For anyone interested, I will be putting the line art of all the Legion pieces I have been doing over the last several days on eBay tomorrow evening. If there is a piece that you are interested in, let me know before tomorrow night. Thanks!

Enjoy the weekend everyone!

You give this guy a set of claw, and he could be the Legions version of Wolverine!

Really nice job on the colors!

Gary - It's a fair comparison. I think that Dave Cockrum came up with Wolverines look without the mask/helmet. And Dave came up with Timber Wolfs look. But Timber Wolfs look came first. :) Thanks!

Brin was another one of my requests.

As a kid, I remember reading a sequence where two legionnaires are discussing Timber Wolf's chances of succeeding at a particular task - I think it was infiltrating an enemy's lair. Their discussion was in captions in panels where we see Brin display his speed, strength, and agility.

Great character. And Wolvie is definitely the X-Men's version of Timber Wolf.
