“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

HELLBOY_90 minutes

There are very few people who can draw this guy correctly - I'm obviously not one of them. I struggled with the forms when they're not interpreted graphically as Mignola does and I guess some of the character's charm goes away when he's not rendered in that harsh black style normally associated with his look. I'll try again later and hopefully it'll turn out better.

One of my pet peeves is someone drawing Hellboy wrong. Most people just draw him as a bulky red human with a tail and horns. They think HB looks that way because of Mignola's style, and it annoys me to NO END, because a person's style doesn't matter as long as the character is on model.

This is pretty damn on model, man. Better than most.

I think it'd be money if you just moved that tail away from that back foot. Nice job sir.
