hellboy: first post, first painting

my first hellboy comic i red was ‚wake the devil‘ from 1997. since that day i am a big big fan of mike mignola and his art. i am addicted to his fascinating work and unique style until the present day. and everything what is fascinating to me i’m almost in need to draw or paint. this painting of bellboy is a good example for that. i was tempted to rework some weak spots digitally but – no, i’m glad i didn’t.

this is my first post ever, and it’s my first hellboy painting. i just think that’s a good way to start. it’s watercolor over acrylic color sketch on paper, 25 cm x 35 cm (the image is based on a convention drawing by mr. mignola).
