GREEN LANTERN SKETCH

























A young man was sound enough to send me on the Green Lantern sketch i did at Hi-Ex. The one that ended with me spilling ink on myself. Nice.

Glad to get a scan of this. I originally started this sketch the usual way; head/figure in the middle, etc, but it wasn't working. Instead, i decided to be more bold with the composition, and move the figure right into the corner, and use a solid black to emphasize the vertical energy beam.

Quite happy with this one.

Well while I do really like this piece, I gotta say I think Ivan Reis on Green Lantern is probably my favourite stuff ANYWHERE at the moment. He's unbelievable.

bah.

Reis is a good artist.

Dec could do GL Corps. Probably a lot more fun to do because you're not necessarily drawing the same characters every issue.

Ah lads, i appreciate the compliment, but Green Lantern is the best drawn book DC are bringing out. It's phenomenal thanks to Mr. Reis.

This is just a decent Green Lantern sketch.

True, GL corps would be fun to draw!

Thanks guys!

Jamie; i told ya!

Luke, i honestly couldn't tell how long it took, as i didn't time myself, but best guess is between 5 and 10 minutes.
