Illustration Friday: Strength


I didn't think I'd have time for IF this week, but I started sketching and came up with this. It was a very quick sketch and I added the color here and there while working on another job. I don't know who he is yet. Maybe Overdeveloped Upper-body Man...I dunno. Any ideas? Those bags of chip can be hard for anyone to open.

Yes and those cd packages as well. Love the turned in legs. Looks like he is giving it everything he's got! Well done.

Super cool pecs! Love your character work!

Dennis West said...

I have a feeling that is exactly how he got all his muscles. Maybe he should kick a few cans to build up his legs?

Great stuff!

Great character, you have such a knack for creating superheroes ... I like the Amazing Watering Can too!

Jack Ruttan said...

He looks like Megaman, by Don Simpson, who was a take-off on The Tick. Or maybe wasn't.

This is a transparent ploy to get you to look at my blog, but often illustrators hate other illustrators, unless they're getting inspired by them. I don't know. I like your work!
