A Punishing Future Awaits

Posted by Grey Monday, October 24, 2011

What lies ahead of Marvel's beloved vigilante, The Punisher? A questionable stint on the small screen as it would seemed.

According to Deadline, Fox has handed a put pilot commitment to a Punisher TV series adapted by Criminal Minds showrunner Ed Bernero. For those unfamiliar with TV terms, a put pilot commitment means substantial penalties if the pilot never airs. However, for the die-hard fans of Marvel's beloved vigilante, The Punisher, this might not be a good news. Here's why, courtesy from the description of the planned series:

The Punisher is described as an hour-long procedural with a Marvel signature and a new take on one of the comic book giant’s iconic characters, Frank Castle, a rising star detective with the New York Police Department who moonlights as the vigilante Punisher, seeking justice for those the system has failed. Bernero will executive produce along with Marvel.

One of the timeless element that made Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher, an iconic vigilante in the history of fictional vigilantes, is the level of manic dedication and obsession he had with the mission, a 24/7 mission. He ain't no Dexter, if that's what Fox is looking into.

In parting, we take a look at Malaysian artist Johnson Ting Sinyu (AKA rhinoting at deviantART)'s vision of a futuristic Punisher in this coolly rendered illustration. Check out the piece in HD for some unexpected Easter eggs.

In the artist's own words:

Heres a painting I did yesterday for artgerm, he came to our college today and theres a sharing and interaction session with him, to show him our works. Well, so I tried my best to sum up what knowledge and skills I have now to do a painting and see how it works out, learned alot from alot of place recently, inspirations everywhere, so i thought it would be a great time to actually sum it all up to see how im doing.

It's an attempt to step out of my comfort zone actually, I'm always tucking myself in a dark mood, as i paint from dark to light, i always leave alot of darks in the painting, im starting to get uncomfortable, so..try to break it..but still trying.

Had this image stucked in my mind for a week during my trip outta town, I wanted to depict a futuristic punisher guy, where has all these badass attitude and humor, a usual guy except the fact that hes a killer. Had no computer to work with so I have to do alot of sketches and perspective studies on sketchbook, and then i realized how unprepared i am, so it kinda sparks something in my head.

Had to finished this within a day as i just got back and the talk was like few hours away. Working under a deadline that "dead" was truly awesome, coffees and cookies. Learned really alot from this piece. Oh and because of the tight deadline i recycled the helmet from my previous painting and the ships were from another painting i did.

Btw im thinking of doing a series of characters like a bauss paaintings, explosions guns and women. D:

Ps: theres quite a number of easter eggs actually, see if you could spot them.
