Classic Hawkman The Winged Warrior by sean-izaakse Classic Hawkman The Winged Warrior by sean-izaakse

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.

Best

Awesome work! Yes, I think The New 52 was a wrong way to do Hawkman. Hopefully it gets fixed somehow. I want this to go on my group, :iconthe-hawkman-fanclub: along with the other Hawkman and Hawkgirl related stuff on dA! :)

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.


Great job! :la:

Thanks!!
Yeah the eyes are inspired from how Rags Morales drew Hawkman, he was the first artist to give him bird-like eyes, which just made him look all the more like a bird of prey.

You're welcome! Wonderful character design and interpretation on your part, although it is strange Hawkman isn't always drawn with those bird eyes. I mean, that's his thing. :D And hawks have such strong eyes, not cute finch eyes (which might actually look rather creepy on a person, beady and black).

Yeah he usually just has the white eyes of most superheroes in masks, but the bird eyes are just so expressive and haunting. Can't wait to colour this pic. Might get to it next week so keep an eye out.
