Loot Crate invited me to design some boxing match inspired posters for their March 2016 theme: Versus.
Punisher VS Daredevil
Superman VS Batman
Spock VS Spock from a parallel universe where everyone is evil, but it turns out Spock is still a nice guy after all
For Punisher VS Daredevil I was inspired by their classic looks from the 90s. I was a huge fan of the John Rommita Jr take on the characters, so this was a lot of fun to do.
For the second match, Superman VS Batman, I also went for a classic look instead of the current New 52/Movies versions of the characters. Batman is a bulkier version of his Superfriends days (with kryptonite knuckles!) and for Superman I added the Frank Quitely boxers from All Star Superman.
For the last poster, Spock VS Spock, I went for a more symmetric composition. The characters are almost exactly the same, except for Evil Spock's goatee, and they aren't action guys as the previous contenders. So I went a little deeper on Star Trek lore and drew them both fighting with lirpas (I had to google this, I'm not THAT big of a nerd), a traditional vulcan weapon.
