I decided on a quiet night in last night, and had a stab at drawing Mike Mignola’s Hellboy. I came to the character late; seeing the film before ever reading the comics (sorry, fanboys) – which may explain why I’ve drawn too many fingers on his ‘big hand’. Apparently it’s meant to have three fingers, not four. Like a Disney glove. Anyway. This was fun. The most fun I’ve had drawing in a while, in fact (and with a touch of serendipity, James Howard – on twitter – was about to suggest that people ‘draw hellboy’, so I submitted mine. You can see the rest of the submissions here). Initial sketch. Finished line art. Colour...
