Couples Commission: Hawkman and Hawkwoman

I’m continuing on with making the couples commissions, at least until Valentine’s Day. Then I might switch to something more of, well, a pony nature. That way I’ll be well stocked up for Emerald City and beyond.

Really, Shadow War was AWESOME!

Today’s subject is Hawkman and Hawkwoman. I always liked them as a couple, especially when my friend Tony Isabella was writing them. (If you haven’t checked out Shadow War of the Hawkman, especially the miniseries, go find it on eBay or something. It’s worth it.) The pre-angry reincarnated version was my favorite.

He just looks cool, and those masks… well, as a kid they drove me nuts. I couldn’t figure out how to draw them right. Probably why I have an affinity for the Earth-2 much easier to draw hooded version as well. Here, I think I did pretty good.

I drew this in pencil on tracing paper, no digital first. And it was really only one pass at it, too.As well as learning the Cintiq, I’m also trying to hone my live sketching skills so I can properly draw in your sketchbook when the time comes. Then transferred to blueline and inked with brush.

Commission list is still open, just sayin’.
