Wildcats Maul old design work by jimlee00 Wildcats Maul old design work by jimlee00
Concept art for Maul from relaunch...may be used? We shall see. Did a lot of quick pencil sketches with simple colors on the mac. Wanted to restyle some of the characters. This probably won't be used but it's in the direction I wanted to go.

Maul was always my favorite of the WildCATS, so it's awesome to see something new for the character. I would love to see his character developed some more; but I don't know if his design should be pushed too far into "inhuman" otherwise it won't feel like the same guy. So what's this about a relaunch? It's hard to believe that August 2012 marks the 20th anniversary of the WildCATS, so any big plans to celebrate that milestone?

Okay, WHAT THE FUCK?! I go to Comic Art Community to see this image, only it was fucking blocked out as well! Can you please tell what is going on? Is this image banned for some reason? Did you not want people copying it or something? Why?

*sigh* fuck it. I'm not coming back to this pic. Screw the headaches. I'll never fucking see it.

This is bullshit--I want to see your art, yet every time I come here, I just see this damn blank gray deal. If it isn't too much trouble, I don't suppose you could set up a download option, could you? It'd be appreciated.

Awesome, if [link] gets a relaunch with Jim lee back on pencils (I have most of his origional run on the series) I'm definately picking up the book. Great thing about Jim is he said he not a huge fan of continuity (he said something like that at a convention once) he prefers to just drop in and read a book. Hopefully I'll just be able to pick them up and read them without missing too much. Can't wait to see the new Grifter design.

Next to Grifter, Maul was one of my favs. I like the fact that the bigger he got the more he would grow simpler of mind.

It's a curious interpretation. He looks less humanoid and more like a brontosaurus (long neck). I remember I had seen this image in Wizard long time ago.

Dig the Wildcats, how do you work? Sketch, scan, then photoshop for color or are you all digital?

More Wildcats please!

Strange... the sketchy style echoes the feelings of looking through the sketchbooks of daVinci. I half expected backward handwritten notations and a parchment texture underneath.

Good to see the way your mind creates isn't that far off from my own. I actually like the way you've colored this, too. Loose, flowing... it has a certain energy one finds only in the initial creative stages.

I'll bet you were using a Cintiq as well.

It was supposed to be an ongoing series. Issue one came out about... two years ago? Still waiting for issue 2. All-Star B&R got in the way, which is really too bad.

You're welcome. Issue 1 was really pretty cool, though some stuff has changed that I think will take some getting used to (if the series ever resumes). It's too early to say. I do hope it continues at some point, though. In current WS continuity, the world ended and everything is destroyed except for the heroes and a few thousand people. But maybe that's changed, too. I haven't had money to buy comics for about 6 months.

can't see the full size... but the idea of maul as more of a.... monstrous creature is enjoyable.

can't wait to see a finished product out of all of this.

I like this a lot.Maul is a cool character and I think giving him a new "look" like Travis did with Lord EMP, would be awesome:)

Yeah, I remember this too. Maul was one of my favorite characters back in the day. He was just so weird-looking, with the tusks on his back. I like how Emp used to "ride" him too, reminded me of Luna, that creepy little hag from Thundercats who rode the big guy Amuck.
