To be Frank
Congrats to John Owens again for winning the December competition. His Punisher illustration will be off to him soon but i thought i would also post a preview of it here. From my point of view it was a good chance to draw a character i've never actually drawn before and get dirtier and grungier than i normally would with the inking. As i had never drawn the character before i had to decide which take on the character i would use. I've gone for somewhere between the Frank Miller/Klaus Janson version from Miller's Daredevil run and the Mike Zeck mini-series as that's how i picture the character in my head.
I made a light photocopy of my pencils onto a second artboard and used that to create the finished inked version so that means John will also get the original pencils (below).
