Today I'm posting another... "artwork" of mine, this time of Doctor Fate.
|Doctor Fate created by Gardner Fox & Howard Sherman|
As I covered in the previous post, a lot of my tricks are put to use. Most prominently, the old "energy cracking from the hands so I don't have draw actual fingers" trick. Note the Doctor Fate has a full face helmet which helps me skip over any of that pesky "knowing how to draw a human face" business.
Still, for all my limitations of skill and of time (this was done over less than a lunch hour), I kind of like it. I prefer the moodier art of the Spectre drawing but this character is different; instead of oozing out of the shadows, Doctor Fate is a blazing golden sun against the darkness of evil.
Or something like that.
Below is the original pencil sketch.
I have a Batman I did at lunch last week but I'll save that for another time. (And yes, there will be shadows. Lots and lots of shadows.)
I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You
A new edition of Comics Blah Blah Comics. This week, the specter of "Batman created by Bob Kane" gets stirred up again.
More Batman with a classic page from Kyle Baker.
