Fear Agent Part 2



This is a pin-up I did recently for Rick Remender's Fear Agent comic. Actually, it's the 2nd pin-up I've done for FA (you can see the first one here.) and it took way longer to draw than I originally thought. I drew the rough sketch for it fairly quickly, like under a half-hour, so I thought I'd probably knock out the final in markers over a couple of hours. Of course, sometimes things don't go as easily as planned, and after deciding to change up the lighting for more accuracy and added drama, I spent a full day learning how to draw double-lit figures in two colours. I still see a lot of problems/mistakes in this piece, but I thought I share it anyway.

You know I like the space stuff. This looks great Mike. I'd love to see it live and in person one day.

Beautiful piece. Love the lighting, especially the subtle light under his nose. I can't believe you do this with markers - how do you get that gorgeous tapered line?
