Enter Doctor Fate

Back near the end of May, I posted a bit of...for lack of better word, let's call it "artwork"...that I had composed. In that case, it was The Spectre

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.)
