Comic Character of the Month: Recurring CONTEST!This Month's Character
[Professor Charles Xavier]
Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, we choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.
All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest; however, please enter all submissions into the Comic Character of the Month gallery folder. It takes many hours to filter through the entire gallery, so please enter your work in the right folder so that we can post the feature quicker!
The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section. Everyone who submitted work will have their work in a group feature.

kaskajo is a pencil-and-paper artist who hails from Spain. He has been a deviantART member for two years and has quite an expansive gallery. His main subject is the female form, specifically those of Marvel and DC comics. You can really see his talent develop and grow through each drawing. If you have a soft spot for the heroines and villainesses of the comic book world, make sure you take a peek at his gallery! here.
... [about Artist Spotlight]
From time to time, we select one member to feature in this section. We include a selection of their work and a short description of them and their artistic style. They will also receive 10 deviant points and one work permanently displayed in the Featured section of our gallery!
DO NOT ASK TO BE FEATURED. If you do, we will not feature you. We choose an artist from the group based mostly on talent. Group activity is also a secondary factor.
A new artist will be chosen at random times.
