Here’s a quick warm-up I did while at work today!
This was done for the Sketchercise theme of music or song. It’s John Constantine with a Red Right Hand, which is a reference to a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds song. I like to think that I’d have put a big demon behind him and a flaming pentagram, but let’s face it, I’m to effing tired and lazy to do that right now.
I wanted to get this up before everyone else starts posting and puts me to shame…
I like playing with HB’s arm size a bit. Theoretically, he should have one kinda monstrous arm (his right one, duh) and one smaller arm. but for this I just made it a tad bigger, and of course it’s a little larger because of the pose.
I had a lot of fun inking this one. It’s all brush with the exception of the white on his right hand, and some stuff in his skullular region.
This week’s Sketchercise directed us to draw our favorite comic strip character. I was positive I’d get beaten to the punch on Calvin and Hobbes (and I did…post it Brandon!), so I decided to go with my other favorite strip, Boondocks. A lot of people might know these guys from the cartoon, but the strip was great as well!
And before anyone says anything, yes I know that Riley doesn’t have the cornrows in the comic strip. Shut up. Heh.
