The Punisher

One of the things I’ve been practicing lately is loosening up my drawing style. I’ve been playing around with really loose large format ink pieces and this is the first that I’ve liked well enough to post. It’s of Frank Castle (the Punisher), one of my least favorite “superheroes” but one that’s pretty popular with the comics crowd. For a moody piece with a brush, I thought he’d be a great choice to give it a whirl. This piece is big, much bigger than it appears on screen. It was done with just one flat brush on 14×17″ bristol board. Not surprisingly, it took less than an hour to complete. Expect to see more of these coming in future weeks. Laying down big inks on this thing was a lot of fun. I’m tempted to try my hand at a Dr. Doom piece next.
