the Hawkeyes versus the Purple men! Ok i know there’s no Purple men in the Marvel Universe…not yet…
In light of the incredibly disappointing news involving Mario Götze, I’ve decided to post something to cheer me up. And Kate Bishop always does that for me.
This was made for me about a week ago by the fabulous Gabzilla-z, as I requested this from her, and Gabzy did well to accommodate my request. The end result of it is rather pleasing, and here it is for your viewing pleasure.
Okay so do you remember the time that Matt Fraction described Clint and Kate’s relationship as ‘The Avengers (UK) of The Avengers (US)’?
Obviously I thought that was pretty badass, and had a jolly time drawing dapper-as-fuck!Hawkeyes.. it just took me awhile to figure out how to get Clint and Kate rocking a believable Steed and Mrs. Peel vibe. (If Clint’s suit looks familiar, congratulations, you get the other half of the joke.)
Starry-eyed gratitude to an archer (yes, that one specifically :D ) who very graciously provided reference images and general archery consultation. Seriously, this was way less cool before I begged him for input. Thank you, Archer!
Musical inspiration: Tank! (yeah, no, I couldn’t resist) And if you’ve read all the way to the bottom and are still confused, Hawkeye. Matt Fraction. David Aja. It’s a thing. Read the thing. Thank me later.
I don’t hang out with him, he hangs out with me!
