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.
Damn it, THIS is Hawkman!
The 90s were also kinder on him even tho the art from his series was.. nothing close to your rendition, saddly.
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.
