CLOCKSTOPPER BY DAVID LAFUENTE

This is the last of the sketches I got at the 2009 NYC Comic Con. Clockstopper from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS was drawn by David LaFuente. I actually didn't get this from David, Jamie Fay did for me. I had asked him if there were any artists he had seen in Artists Alley that he liked and had him get this for me. David was doing quick sketches while you wait at the Con and they were a decent price. He decided to draw Clockstopper and as he was drawing him he asked Jamie what his powers where or something, but he didn't say he, he said she, lol. He thought Clockstopper was a girl until Jamie told him he wasn't. He quickly changed the figure on the drawing but you can still kind of tell by the face that he draw him as a girl. That's totally an easy mistake given Simon's costume I think. I really think this sketch came out awesome and was very happy with it. David recently finished up the Patsy Walker: Hellcat mini-series from Marvel and is scheduled to be the new penciller on the relaunch of Ultimate Spiderman! His style is perfect for that!

I love Dave...who would have thought doing humble beginnings with Wise Intelligence would lead him to doing Spider-Man. I WOULD! :) His artwork rocks and I'm mad happy at all his success. That said...I didn't notice at all what you were talking about with this picture and I think it came out great.

I didn't know that Dave had drawn Wise Intelligence. Sweet! I agree with you, he's super talented and I'm looking forward to see how he does with Spiderman. And I definietly don't think there is anything wrong with the pic he drew for me, I really like it, I was just saying that he started it thinking that the character was a female. If you look at the face though, it does look a little feminine.

he told me he thought it was a girl because he was super skinny, like a girl. had long eyelashes, like a girl. and soft feminine features, like a girl lol. he said he thought she was a tomboy. lol

i love how it turned out though

I'll give you the eyelashes, but super skinny shouldn't indicate that a character is a girl or not.
