Hellboy sketches by diablo2003 Hellboy sketches by diablo2003
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!

I only glanced at the pic before I read your description, so here I am expecting some mutated, monstrosity of a gun. It is actually very well done and I was pleasantly surprised that I absolutely love how you draw Hellboy, when I'm usually so picky about my favorite hero. Well done.

Have you guys noticed how characters with cigars always makes a comment about them?
Wolverine, Hellboy, you name it. "That was my last cigar" - "This was a cuban cigar" and so on :P

Yep, Mignola is the man! You probably know that he design Batman:TAS version of Mr. Freeze. I generally don't like overly "realistic" takes on Hellboy. I think he looks better stylized but I like this, it reminds me of 70's style realistic look comics.
