I did a sketch a while back of Luke Cage and Steve suggested that I do one of Iron Fist. I tend to sit on these things till I have an idea of where I want to go with them. In this case as I was wrapping up that Velma piece I had a sudden inspiration. "What if all those years of hanging around Luke Cage made Iron Fist Ghetto?" Which, immediately became; "What if Eminem was Iron Fist?" The idea had me laughing my ass off. He was supposed to have a microphone and sneakers to go with his hoodie. As I sat down to sketching, I started listening to "Triumph" and "Iron Flag" over and over. It didn't take long before the Wu tang albums started influencing my decisions. I eventually wound up changing the concept a final time to reflect The Wu tang Clan angle. After all that, I still kept the hood.

Yeah, I know. You took one look and you knew she was a genius. Ha! I'd been planning on doing this sketch for a couple weeks but I didn't have the time to sit down and work on it. I'll admit that I liked Velma back when she was built like a brick house. The only problem was that she was a little to butch. When she got redesigned in What's new Scooby doo they made her mousy and petite. I got no hate on it, I just missed how big she was. All in all, she fit the kind of character that I would like to add some unnecessary pounds too.
