I'm going to be doing a piece for a friend of Hellboy and another character from the DC universe ( if he reads this, he'll know who he is) when I realized I'd never really drawn Hellboy that much so I did these sketches as an exorcise to see how I'd handle him. I love the character because he's one of the most effective designs of any character in comics. Simple, dynamic, and instantly identifiable even in silhouette which are the marks of a great character concept. All done in pencil with the colored version colored in photoshop.
And yes, I know the gun makes absolutely no sense but neither does a 7 foot tall demon that fights supernatural crime.
Hope you dig!
