Two weeks ago, Tom Hardy shared on Instagram a bunch of fanart of Venom, the Marvel antihero with a terrifying maw whom he's portraying for an upcoming solo movie due for release in October. 

And as it turns out, one of them was done by a Filipino artist. 

Columbia Pictures, the local distributor for the "Venom" movie, revealed that the artwork below is by a Pinoy named Christian Brian Gomez, and is one of 7 finalists of a fanart contest.
