I've quickly become a VERY big fan of Dave Chisholm's wild ride, Let's Go to Utah. I would very highly recommend it to anyone who loves good comics. It immediately reminded me of David Lapham's Stray Bullets. You can find his page here: [link] Go there now!

So, being that I'm such a huge fan of the book, I just had to work up a quick piece of the book's main crazy, Leif. I love the guy. He's definitely out there.

So, this is a little different for me, and certainly a little bloodier than the stuff I normally do. So I've put a mature content warning on it. I'd rather err on the side of caution.

Tools:
2H, HB pencil lead, Rapidosketch pens, Prismacolor markers, and Dr. P.H. Martin's dyes.

I hope you like (go check out his site)!

I had no idea who Andrew WK was until I checked him out after your post. You know, it's very possible Dave used him as reference for Leif.

Very cool piece, it instantly caught my eye (which is a good thing :) ). I hadn't seen your artwork before so it was a pleasant discovery.

Hmmmm. Maybe my wife is right. Maybe I DO tend to understate.

Thanks for setting me straight!

Gore is good. ok my critique. your thought of stance is gritty and menacing. the contrast of black white and red invite a person's curiousity even as a thumbnail. i like the well thought out placement of blood ,I'm curious as to what you used for the blood specificly and how did you get the diffrent tones?. Since most of your poses are original and you redesign their look to your draw style , i have to compliment your ability to depicting acurrate clothing texture , like how the clothing creases realisticly according to dynamic forces and stuff. only one tip i wanna benifit you with... smaller pupils make ppl look more evil or angry. even the position of the glare in the eye can suggest weather the person is forced in the situation they are in , or if the person is plain evil. very nice hands btw
