The Black Coat

This is a recent pin-up drawing I did for fellow artist Francesco Francavilla and his very nice comic book, the Black Coat. Its a historical adventure, set around the time of the American revolution and features a mysterious hero in, what else, a black coat.

Since the comic has such an interesting historical setup for the stories, I tried to keep some of that period background and mood in my drawing. As with everything else recently, I drew this one in 2 colours with Pitt pens and then cleaned it up digitally. You can compare the final against my original mini-sized, quickie pencil rough below:
