The Human Torch. Paris Manga 2010
This week's sketch is The Human Torch drawn for a fan (Alexis) at Paris Manga in February.
Kinda tried to channel an Alex Ross painterly quality with this one. Started with a rough outline of where Johnny Storm would be standing and began using a large wedge marker for most of the figure-work and fire. Went in afterwards with a thinner pigment liner (about 0.7mm) for the more delicate detailing. This would work well with colour but for the purposes of a convention sketch still turned out quite well. Maybe about ten minutes in all.
Thanks to Guillaume for the scan.
