Just a concept sketch for the cover of Isus The White Knight Issue 1. I was heavily inspired by the Iron Man 3 poster and this is my homage to that amazing work of art. I wanted to play with ripping Isus' arm up a bit and showing ripped wires, a tattered military jacket and even gave him a bloody nose, a few gashes and a black eye. I started to shade it but got lazy.
Probably the hardest part of this was the foreshortening on the torso. The muscle details are second nature to me, now. It's not perfect but it was enough to make me feel good about myself.
I've been in a drawing slump lately and need to practice more. Share your thoughts but don't tear it down TOO much. I need the confidence to get through my backlog.
