Happy Heart Day
Decided to steal a page from Heywood's book and post some old art as I haven't done anything creative in a couple days (save draw Angie a Valentine's card, but that's kinda personal to post). This is a pin-up I did of an old comic (Unbound) of mine for the back of a new comic (Requital) of mine. Two other friends and I put together three anthology-type comics in college. I switched stories with the second issue for some unknown reason, but I did keep Unbound going as a strip in the school paper. (I think it ran in four editions before we graduated.) It was a fantasy story that dealt with an evil sorceress and her minions, who turned the wrong peasant into a killing machine. Our protagonist regained his past memories on a assassination mission and then decided to take the fight back to the sorceress. (I'll look up her name later, but I think it's something lame like Ritual.) Anyway, here he is in all his nasty glory. Inked with a 102 crowquill and then splattered with a toothbrush. I don't think I could draw like this again if I tried, but you never know, I might.
