Firestarter


For those of you who don't know me personally, I am very fond of a lovely little comic called HellBoy. So, of course, my love for the character compelled me to watch the HellBoy 2 movie... And, to put it lightly, I didn't think it did the comic a lick a justice. BUT, having said that, it did rekindle my love for the BPRD and its big red ape. I did this little piece of Miss Liz Sherman on my breaks at work.

Very cool sketch of Liz n hellboy.

Hi mel, I miss your works. Thanks for the kind comments. I really think you captured Liz' character in your sketch. Have you picked up the Liz figure? Looks just like your sketch. I'm sure Mr. Mignola would love your rendition.

Dig the design, great work. I haven't seen the new HB2, but I didn't mind the first one. What made the sequel fall short for you?

Dominic Bugatto said...

Fun pic!

Hi There, I'm new to your blog, I'd just like to say I love your bright, fun style and I'll stop by to see more.
I haven't seen the new HB movie yet, i don't think it's come out here (downunder), so i can't comment on it, but it would take some doing to beat Mike Mignolas stuff. i think they make these movies a little too quickluy nowadays and rely on the CG side of things a little too much eh?
Take care, Keep up the great work, Aaron.
