Abe Sapien


I thought I'd take a crack at Abe Sapien this week, he of Hellboy and B.P.R.D. fame. It's one of the few comic book sandboxes that I'd love to play in, although frankly I think I'd rather just see Guy Davis draw it all.

Exciting update! There's a colour version here for those who may be interested.

This looks absolutely fantastic. One of my favourite pieces on the blog - you've totally excelled yourself.

That's lovely man. Great drawing but the composition totally makes it that much better.

A great character, and a gorgeous piece.

beautiful work, the tendtrils frame it really well.

The best thing you've done in ages. Fantastic composition, great, simple drawing with just the right amount of line, and a real sense of movement. I find some of your digital stuff, while really-well drawn, tends to get bogged down in all of the new brushes and tones that you employ with manga-studio, and can end up a bit deadened by the process.
This is really aces.

Guys, seriously, where can I order prints of this stuff? That is a phenomenal piece.

This is one for the ages! A truly good piece. It feels alive.

I think as artists, we always want these great images to happen, but it's impossible to know when that's gonna be.....but every once in a while..BAM!!

Nice job!
