Ask Hulkling!

Hulkling!

You know how I said every artist has variations of Teddy? That goes double for Hulkling. dis just how I do

so let’s try the body type of un-hulk-y ted!!

again, this isn’t How To Do It so much as How I Do It. I tend to draw Teddy as more stocky, clearly solid and strong but not CUT BEEFCAKE!!! in his “default” form. re: the body builder versus strongmen comparison: If you look at dudes in strongmen competitions, they’re often bigger dudes with a measure of fat on their body. They’re not “cut” like the body builder type. Given intrinsic super-strength, I lean more towards the solid strongman build rather than, say, Superman or whatever.

but that’s just, like, my opinion, man

also let’s be real my own grasp of anatomy in general isn’t perfect, (and anyone who’s got input/critiques/tips let me know!) but well, it is what it is

Next up is Hulkling!

Even though I post it in the tutorial, I gotta emphasize: there’s no set in stone way to interpret Ted’s character design! Look at Takeshi Miyazawa versus Harvey Tolibao versus Jim Cheung, for most dramatic comparisons- but every artist will draw every character differently, including Teddy. So this isn’t like, gospel or anything.

Next up is how I draw his body type!

never done a tutorial before, this was kinda fun

also uh sup guys been a while

Marry, boff, kill; Rictor, Northstar, or Daken? :)

Marry Rictor, boff Northstar, kill Daken. He’s a little shit. And not in a semi-affectionate way like Loki.

he’s just a little shit

plus, I’d had several jerks recently leave my life and I felt like I needed a change

It’s weird thinking about, to be honest. When I found out I could be a superhero, I thought that it just meant saving people and making sure they were safe. I didn’t think all the way through that maybe someone would be looking up to me- let alone for just being who I am.
I’m… really glad I can help people that way, too.

[Happy holidays, everybody! Thank you to all of the people who follow ask-hulkling and all of your lovely questions and commentary. I hope you have a wonderful holiday, and to those of you who asked how Billy and Teddy were spending the holidays this year, here’s a little snippet.
Teddy doesn’t sleep on the couch, by the way, he just… fell asleep there 8|a]

Just try and take things one day at a time and don’t weigh yourself down by what other people’s standards would be for a relationship. Comparing yourselves to others will only stress you out; focus on whether YOU’RE happy. And, again: be honest with yourself.

Dear Hulking, what was your reaction to New York legalizing "gay" marriage?
