It's another drawing from the back of my now infamous brown paper sandwich baggie.
Just a black felt tip pen for the lines and then some digital fiddle faddle and there it be.
I'm rather partial to drawing the energy from his mind blaster too. I'm really digging the halftone processes I have been using lately; they add lots of texture to the images.
Keep on Mindblasting!
After taking a hiatus from submitting to the mighty MMM for a couple of years, Ian returns to his roots with this completely awesome entry. He writes,
For a closer look at more of Ian's work visit his BLOG!Yeah, this really is inspired by a lot of my robot photography and painting in the past couple of years. I've been thinking about this design for quite a while, actually, about the horror that sort of existence would entail, and this is what ended up coming out.
He also pointed out the staggering similarity between these two very famous statues.
Feel free to stop in and scope out more stuff from Erik on his BLOG!
I have named him BLACKAGAR M.O.D.O.K.AGONMy silly mash-up of Black Bolt and M.O.D.O.K.
I used Blue Pencil, Black ink and Prismacolor markers.
Hope you like it!Also go find more of DJ Rothenbecker on the internets @Tumblr &Instagram

A few days ago when I was posting my scolding meme, Spud Muther responded with a quick MODOK crayon sketch for us via Twitter. He's allowed us to post it here. Thanks, Spud!
We received a slew of cg renderings of MODOK from Javier Ribeiro, aka RendeRboy. I couldn't decide on a single image, so enjoy all of these.
Check out more of Javier's work here:
Many thanks for the submission and support Mr. Melgares.

The talented Mr. Nøhr from Denmark returns, sending us this Brilliant MODOK!
He writes:Check out more work by Thomas at the links listed below.
Here we go again! This time it's Gentleman McModock, villain and scoundrel from just before the turn of the century... the previous one that is, not this one.
Mindblast ON, good sir.
Simple materials + drawings of an awesome character = FUN!
So, Get out and draw a MODOK today.
John sent this extra moody mindblast to us early this morning. He writes,
Here's a submission to the March M.O.D.O.K. Madness for 2014. Hope y'all like it. :-) I'm hoping to get at least one more done before the end of the month (fingers crossed).
We're pumped for that additional MODOK image too, but for an extra dose of John's work be sure to scope out his BLOG!
Also be sure to roll initiative today and check out his webcomic Sidekick Quests!

Joseph returns this year with the fun rendition of MODOK, 1 of 4 in a series he calls "MENTAL MODOKS."
MENTAL MODOKS: BEDOK
Digital ink and water color illustrated in Fiftythree's Paper App on iPad.
This ginger MENTAL MODOK is full of rage, spite, and a good sprinkling of mischief. He's "MENTAL MODOKS: BEDOK", and he's 1 of 4 in a series. That's right, 1 of 4... so you all had better buckle up those mind blasting amplifying headbands... there's still 3 more to come!
I figure this year I'll post up a MODOK, inspired by Bandai's GoDaiKin series of the 80's.
I love the first sentence for the Godaikin history entry, according to Wikipedia:
"Mattel had previously tried to market Popy figures as Shogun Warriors in the late 1970s, before the line was cancelled, partially due to safety concerns. In 1982 Bandai decided to try themselves, and came up with the Godaikin range. The name is a combination of the Japanese words for "alloy" (gokin) and "big" (dai), and is presented as "GoDaiKin" on the packaging (however, within collectors' sources, the title case version is more commonly used)."
While many of the GoDaiKin robots were pretty darn awesome, the most memorable figure I ever came across is GOLION. Seeing that box it in all its glory.. on that toy shelf, ..DANG!
Anyways, for the love of all that is DIE-CAST METAL, and all that is MODOK. He deserves the best toy treatment.
Btw, I started a new tumblr site: http://mrmrdrawsometimes.tumblr.com/
We'll see how that goes. Catch you all soon.

I saw it at the Dragon Con in Atlanta right before the costume parade. I asked the person wearing it if they would let me take a photo and they were kind enough to pose for me.Which proves that MODOK fans are always down for a good photo opportunity. Also it shows this beloved Mental organism to be extremely photogenic.
[EDIT: Big thanks to Contagious Media for identifying the creator of this awesome costume, a designer who goes by the name of Midwest MacGyver. I did do a search for the appearance of the costume so I could credit the designer and found many pictures of it, but couldn't link it to a specific creator. --B]
Another The Line It Is Drawn piece, this one by Fernando Pinto. With MODOK taking the Ultimate Nullifier as bait, this one pays homage to Nirvana's Nevermind album cover from 1991.
Check out more of Fernando's work at his website. Thanks, Fernando!
