When you get asked to name ten Marvel superheroes, one of those is bound to be Wolverine. Even before Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of him spanning over a decade and a half, Wolverine was already the rock star of the comic world, appearing in cartoons, video games, and crossing over to other comic titles beyond X-Men.
So what makes him so popular? Probably the fact that his no-nonsense, anti-hero attitude, clashing with his strict code of honour, makes him a truly unique character. Plus his overall badassery. No one else makes wearing yellow look super masculine.
Being a ’90s comic nerd, I know Wolverine best in his classic yellow and blue spandex, drawn by artists like John Byrne, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, and Joe Madureira. Those are the Wolverine stories I am fond of. The X-Men cartoon, with its super catchy theme song, is also a fond memory of mine.
When choosing which Wolverine style to go with for this tutorial, I decided to get inspiration from one of my favourite comic artists, Art Adams. I hope you enjoy!
Watch the LOGAN red band trailer:
“Born with super-human senses and the power to heal from almost any wound, Wolverine was captured by a secret Canadian organization and given an unbreakable skeleton and claws. Treated like an animal, it took years for him to control himself. Now, he’s a premiere member of both the X-Men and the Avengers.” (Source)
