Mongul vs Wonder Woman


Just noticed that I never got around to posting this sketch.
I sketched this right before I started work on the short story I did with Peter Tomasi in Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #1.
This piece is my take on the fight between Mongul & Wonder Woman from the Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons classic "For The Man Who Has Everything".

You're a natural designer. Any one can throw together a million lines and make it look like something, a special few can be muster this kind of precise efficiency in their art and have it rise to the top. Toth would be proud. :)

Um, yeah, ditto with respect to what Mr. Hawthorne said. My eyes are always drawn to the intriguing implied lines (like in WW's boot) that you weave throughout your compositions. You have a clever knack for surprising the viewer in this way, and in conjunction with your strongly emotive facial characteristics and controlled body tension, even a simple study like this one takes on a life of its own. Yada, yada, yada...this is a great tribute, sir.
