After talking on twitter yesterday I decided to do some fanart of classic Hawkman. Definitely one of my favourite DC characters amongst others.
Sorry but I hate the new 52 Hawkman. Pre new 52, Geoff Johns and Rags Morales did a pretty long run on Hawkman that, for me, was just brilliant and totally captured the best things about the character. I think I’m gonna have to make a plan and order that omnibus (even though I have all the issues hehe)
Anyway, enjoy and I’ll probably colour this one later and post it.
The line work is positively gorgeous and I love the bold use of black. But for me the best part is his intense expression and the eyes, wow! I don't think I've ever said this about Hawkman before but: dang, his eyes are lovely; they have a rather sparkling bird-like quality which really grabs you.
