This is a big thing for me. Few things, except perhaps 40k, Star Wars and Bruce Timm's Animated Batman, has influenced me as much as an illustrator like Mike Mignola. Therefore I naturally wanted to celebrate this bidecennial in some way. So, without further ado - here's my homage to Mike's greatest creation:
Fantastic! I too love Mignola's Hellboy. Such wonderful imagery, imagination, colour, and blend of story-telling and lore. Excellent piece, one I am sure would make him proud!ReplyDelete
Hard to say... he´s a grumpy guy from what I´ve gathered... ;-)Delete
I'm a big Hellboy fan too, although I must admit my favourite Mignola publication is actually the Amazing Screw-On Head. ;)ReplyDelete
Great illustration as well, I love how nonchalant he is having a smoke break after dealing with the beast!
True. Screw-on head is probably the best single story he´s ever done. It´s just perfect.Delete
But Hellboy is still my favorite character...
Hellboy has some really good stories, I really enjoy the longer arcs but the short stories and one-shots are what I'm really drawn to.Delete
"Pancakes" is a classic!
"The boy has eaten the pancakes" - "Truly this is our blackest hour"Delete
Yeah, that a great example of his unbelievably economic storytelling. I like "Heads" as well.
Hell - I like everything!!
Heads is a classic! :)Delete
Beautiful piece mate - well doneReplyDelete
Absolutly stunning, man! And Happy Birthday, Red! :DReplyDelete
Can't say that I'm a big Hellboy fan. I've only seen the movies and, for the most part, found them pretty average. I do, however, love your piece of artwork! Great colours and the characters are just beautifully done :)ReplyDelete
Well, then you've got a whole bunch of comics to read.... ;-)Delete
I've only read the a couple of the books and watched the films and thoroughly enjoyed it all.ReplyDelete
Love the drawing.
Just so you know this is only slightly less geeky than painting little plastic miniatures while living with your parents ;-p
Screw you Peter. And it´s only for two months before I move into my new top secret evil subterranean lair. so there.Delete
Best reply ever!Delete
I'd have through you'd have gone with an evil hollowed out volcano lair. ;-)
Amazing! I'm a huge fan of Big Red! was pleasently surprised to see that as well as a talented miniature painter and converter you're also a talented artist! o7 Hats off sir!ReplyDelete
