Some early designs for the Traags(or Draags) - the giant aliens who keep humans as pets.

You know, I must say, with such thin lines, you're conveying some damn fine expressions! That second page, just chock full of it.

Been late on the blog images of late but damn, they are all great. Loving the Animal Man too!

Thanks, man! It's nice to work in a more graceful, delicate style. Kinda excited to see where it goes :-)

Thanks again!

The line work here is very nice. Are you going straight pencil on this by any chance or are you using your blue-line-print-to-ink method?

Mike Hawthorne said...

Asa - Thanks, man! Glad you're enjoying it.

I had considered going straight from pencils, much like the G.I. Joe pages. But I felt like it wasn't slick enough for the futuristic world I wanted to create. I may still use a pencil type of inking when I come to the parts of the book that focus on just humans, but I'm not sure just yet.
