Everyday is Thors-day!

I decided to post these two pieces together for obvious reasons. I had two friends each order a commission of Thor recently. One wanted Thor in his new, Coipel-designed, costume and the other one wanted my take on the mythological Thor. I did both these pieces back to back and had a blast with each one! My loyalty keeps swaying back and forth to which one I like best--I hope that says something to how much I liked these. As an added bonus, anyone who knows me knows that I got into comics reading G.I.Joe but it was at a flea market that I was really sucked into the Marvel Universe when I picked up one of Walt Simonson's issues of THOR. So the guy holds a fond place in my heart.

Amazing pieces! Thor was my first mail order subscription when I was a kid. He, pretty much, was my intro to Marvel as well.

This is some of the best work I've seen from you. Both are INCREDIBLE! I love you take on Thor and would love to see you do more with the character in a book!
