I am also a big fan of Hellboy (as many of you may know already) so this morning warm up was about the BIG RED :)
The fact that Mike Mignola is gonna be tomorrow at Dragon*Con in artist alley (where I am set up) might be another reason of why I drew this ;)

As usual, click on the image for a bigger view.

THAT is sweet. Well done, sir!

I guess it's redundant to say you never fail to get the most out of an angle and some dynamic shading, FF. The best part is how Hellboy actually look heroic and kind of frightening at the same time. He is the Beast of the Apocalypse after all, and we tend to forget that!

Nice one indeed!

hmmmm . . . very well done, but lacks a little {i dunno} of the catroonish quality inherent in the character. all in all, a good depiction, though.

thanks for sharing,
