This is my love letter to the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show. It started as 2 panels then morphed into 3 because we are all a little worried about you, Barton.
Gorgeous! And brilliant. I love Natasha to May and poor, woobie Clint!
Clint Barton, mechanic extraordinaire and the only person Phil Coulson allows to touch Lola.
(Let the Mechanic!AUs commence coz the people in this fandom are terrible enablers.)
everyone is on my level and i could not be happier
Kate Bishop & Clint Barton - Hawkeye Trailer
“Why are you giving me such a hard time?” Kate asked before snatching her arrow out of Barton’s grasp.
Clint turned his back on the young S.H.I.E.L.D. recruit. Because you’re too young. This will get you killed. “It’s the job,” was his reply.
Jennifer Lawrence as Kate Bishop. Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton.
WELL FUCK ME THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN *drops*
Shut up and take my money!
Hawkguy and Kate need a movie!
I have no idea how this photo came to be, but I don’t care. I like it because of reasons.
Could we just take a moment here…
Lil arm love for Shadowen on her birthdaaaaay!
This was a “The Life of Clint and Phil” serie kinda thing.
I started this 14 months ago and then Avengers happened and Jossed all the things and I wept and abandoned it.
Then I went through my WIPs recently and saw this… and it felt like such a waste of an idea, so I took my three favorites and finished them quickly and here they are <3
It’s not perfect - by all means - and also super weird to finish something after so long, but I do hope you like it anyway eeeeee :)
(as usual, reblog is love, but please please don’t repost art in a new post/use without asking me. <3 )
Aaaaand here comes another finished commission I had HUGE fun painting))
I’ve been asked to do some Phil “I Can Kill You With A Doughnut” Coulson and Clint “Hawkeye” Barton in some style that would represent them like “boys being boys” - at rest, or during a mission… and, as long as I’ve been also asked to do some Coulson-in-glasses, I’ve chosen the moment of peace.
Mind that ONE DOESN’T SIMPLY KEEP FROM NAUGHTY ‘EASTER EGGS’ xD
So, ‘not my division’ added to the sketchy version (the normal one doesn’t include it), CREEPY DONUTS on the table (that’s my usual emblem for videos I share on YouTube)), Scandalized Voyeur Owl mug, and - ta-dah! - spot the vortex manipulator, ladies and gentlemen, and have a lovely day ;3
P.S.: …looks like I’ve messed up with Coulson’s neck a bit T_T
Ffffinished! The first full-colour piece I’ve finished for Marvel Tumblr Con auction))
You can see the progress at my livestream channel… and you’ll get to know who’s the Bond girl here ;3 Also, I’ve explained a few things during the painting process, so I can only hope that’s… educational?.. At least, those who watched it with me know that there’s a reason to torture me for the way I work out the hands’ shape… xD
Was an exquisite pleasure to paint this one, seriously… plus, during the brakes I managed to bake some stuff for the upcoming Eastern Orthodox Easter, yippee)))
I’ll announce when I have a chance to stream something again… sooner than you expect *wink-wink*
Dear Hawkeye Hater,
You may not remember me. I think we met around the time the Avengers movie came out, and you took the time to explain to me why having Hawkeye on the team was a stupid decision and why I was wrong for liking him. I may have argued or just stared at you dumbly, but you wouldn’t have noticed.
The thing is, now that the Hawkeye comic has been nominated for five Eisner awards, I wanted to take a moment to return the favor. That is, I’d like to use a little bit of my precious time and energy to explain why you are wrong.
There is one thing, my dear hater, about which you are absolutely right: Hawkeye shouldn’t be an Avenger. With no powers, no formal training, and no special gifts or enhancements, Clint Barton has no business being any kind of hero, super or otherwise. He wasn’t given great power and became a hero by accepting the accompanying great responsibility. He wasn’t transformed by tragedy into a force for justice. He’s not a soldier or a scientist, and, let’s face it, he’s a fucking terrible spy. Tear-jerking backstory is one thing, but we’re talking about a guy who started at zero and then it kept getting worse. The only thing extraordinary about Clint is how much his life, historically, sucks. There is absolutely no earthly reason for this asshole to have wound up on the roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Do you know how Hawkeye became a hero? It’s a funny story, actually. So he’s just this guy with the circus, right? World’s Greatest Marksman - you’ve heard the schtick. Then, one day, he sees Iron Man save some people from, like, a runaway ferris wheel or some shit, and he just goes, “I can do that. I can be a superhero.”
And then he fucking does it.
Does he start off by hilariously falling flat onto his gorgeous farm boy face? Yup. Then he gets up and keeps trying and keeps going and keeps fighting, and that is why Hawkeye is a fucking Avenger.
There was no gift or event or circumstance that spurred Clint Barton to become Hawkeye, the Avenging Archer; he made himself into a hero, for no other reason than that he fucking wanted to, and he keeps trying and keeps going and keeps fighting and keeps pace with people who have every advantage he doesn’t, whose status as Avengers pass unquestioned.
I’m gonna take a shot in the dark here, hater, and guess that you probably don’t have super powers. I mean, I don’t. As far as I know, none of my friends do (unless you count being awesome). I try to avoid broad generalizations, but I would estimate that the average comic book reader is probably pretty lacking in the powers department. A lot of us probably had crappy childhoods, but Tragic Backstories are, thankfully, a little harder to find. Those of us who are geniuses and scientists probably don’t have an inherited fortune to back us up or a life-altering lab accident to look forward to. Those of us who are soldiers are unlikely to be helped by super serums or experimental procedures. Some of us are starting from nothing. Some of us are starting from less Some of us have physical and psychological disabilities and other disadvantages that make every single day a challenge.
And yet so many of us still find ways to be heroes.
There are a lot of pretty great lessons you can take away from Hawkeye, as a character and as a symbol, but the one that really resonates with me is that, with a little bit of skill and a whole lot of follow-through, a person can make themselves extraordinary. We might not be fighting aliens or saving the world, but we can choose to be heroes.
And that, dear hater, is why Hawkeye is fucking awesome.
PS: You may now exit directly to the left.
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.
Clint demanded art….
