“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

LOEG vs. THE MOLEMEN_commission
This is another entry in Emmy Award winning 30 ROCK actor SCOTT ADSIT's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen themed sketchbook.
There were a lot of mole men and it was a large sketchbook, so it took a bit of time. But if you're going to draw in a sketchbook which has Adam Hughes, Brian Stelfreeze, Stephane Roux et al - you'd better bring your A-game.
Or in my case (considering I'm not as good as any of those artists mentioned above) I brought multiple versions of the only game I've got: my C-game. And I decided to overwhelm you with useless details. Hooray! My apologies if it's not easy to see the image because the figures are so small, but point and shoot cameras aren't as good as studio scanners. My favorite part is doing the Invisible Man and his shadow. Do invisible people have shadows? I should've done more research.
Yeah. C-game. That's just how I roll.
PS - I'm still sick. I need chicken soup. Stat.
