Since Thompson figured out that 95% of his Micks pieces were headshots, i realized i've only posted two headshots on this blog so far. So, here's a new one; Killer Croc, a villain from Batman's Rogue Gallery.
This drawing is heavily inspired by the version of Croc i saw in the brilliant animated series from the 90s. I had never seen/heard of him before the cartoon. I believe the design was by Kevin Nowlan, and i can see the Nowlan influence in this sketch. I also looked up some reference of crocodiles to get some extra texture detail. That's when i realized how good the design Nowlan came up with was. The construction of his cheekbones and jawline really mimics the features of a crocodile's head.
